The British Armed Forces boot supplier, YDS, has been busy supporting one the country’s proudest assets.  The RAF Typhoon Display team fly the incredible Typhoon aircraft in up to 43 different air shows in the UK and around the world, and demonstrate its exhilarating aerobatic capability to thousands of people each year.  The displays also aim to attract new recruits into the RAF as they enthuse about the aircraft.

 

To reinforce their important British MoD supplier role, YDS was keen to offer their support to keep the display crew kitted out and equipped to do their job, even in the most extreme weather.  The YDS boot ‘Resolve GTX’ featuring GORE-TEX® fabric was selected for the team to wear for the season.  The Resolve GTX is a very light and flexible boot with an injected rubber sole for super durability.  With GORE-TEX® footwear it is durably breathable and waterproof keeping the team warm and dry, whatever the climate.

 

Rob Huckle, Chief Technician of the RAF Typhoon Display Team was keen to say ‘The team need durable quality footwear that will withstand all the elements come rain or shine, we are extremely grateful for the support of YDS Boots’

 

Abby Steele, Marketing Executive who presented the boots on behalf of YDS said ‘we had the pleasure of seeing a practice display at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire and even on that very blustery day the defiant Typhoon performed some unbelievable loops and twists, flips and turns, it was fantastic.  We are proud to support the RAF team with quality made YDS boots.’
