Bates Black Soft Toe Tactical Sport Boot for Men




Bates Tactical 5″ Sport Boot for Men

This long-time force veteran keeps getting better with age, now weighing 30 percent less than its original model. For duties that change minute to minute, this 5″ boot gives just the right ankle support that is never too stiff or too sloppy. A breathable mesh lining keeps air moving freely around the feet, while the long-wearing slip-resistant Ultra-Lites rubber outsole sticks every step securely to the ground.

Unlike most competitors, Bates’ entire business is making footwear for military, police and other uniformed public services. The company has been in business over 120 years and is one of the largest suppliers of footwear to the U.S. federal government and Department of Defense. Bates is a part of Wolverine Worldwide, a billion dollar shoe corporation.
