good boots but disappointed with defects
Reviewer: Renee | Chattanooga
I typically love bates boots. These are good, however the ones I received have some small defects, a problem I've never encountered with Bates products. The strings are too short. I barely was able to tie them. The closure tab for the zipper on the right shoe is not sewn on the seam where it should be and therefore does not velcro as it should. I have never had a problem with bates boots before, but this order is a terrible disappointment.
We're sorry that you had these issues with your boots! Most manufacturers have a defective warranty. If you contact our Customer Relations team, we'd be happy to check your eligibility. - TacticalGear.com
greatest boots ever
Reviewer: Carol | Charleroi
Actually, this is my second pair that I purchased. I loved my first pair so much I worried whether I'd ever be able to get the same thing again. You know how everyone changes styles etc. So I bought the second pair so that if the first pair ever wears out then I know that I still have a pair. I wore them all last year in all kinds of weather and they still look brand new. They are very warm and extremely comfortable. I wore them right out of the box. Also, they don't add 5 pounds to your feet like other boots. You don't even know you are wearing boots. I wear them with everything including shorts. Everyone who sees them loves them. Buy a pair, you won't be sorry.
Exactly what I wanted!
Reviewer: WyoGeo | Sheridan
Right out of the box they are comfy and light weight. Usually I need a gel footbed, but not with these. I immediately took the dog for a fast hike on concrete the whole way through town for about 1.25 miles. They are exactly what I wanted. As I was walking my calves bulked up a little and the upper tightened up so I loosened them. WHAT A GREAT DESIGN! I wear 9.5, so little I am not, and these fit the bill well.
About Bates 8" Tactical Sport SZ
Bates Footwear created its Tactical Sport line so that you can find a comfortable boot with the special features you need. Available in black or desert tan with a steel, composite or soft toe, these boots are lightweight and flexible because of their athletic build. The Wolverine Warrior leather and denier nylon makes them oil-, water- and dirt-resistent. For a one-of-a-kind work experience, slip on your own pair of Bates Tactical Sport boots.
It all started with men's dress shoes. In 1885 Bates Shoe Company was just a tiny dress footwear manufacturer. More than seven decades later, the company narrowed its focus to create a uniform dress shoe specifically for the U.S. Navy. From there, its uniform footwear line exploded onto the market. With 1.5 million pairs of military boots sold each year in 60 countries, it's no surprise that Bates remains a major player in the world of military footwear. With a reputation like Bates', it's easy to see why so many uniformed men and women wear these military boots with pride.
