  • Tall and strong, the 8-inch Bates Tactical Sport Boot is built to stand tough no matter the obstacle. The upper is made from full-grain and 1680 denier nylon for unmatched durability. Similar to most athletic shoes, these boots boast a cement construction. This highly mobile construction makes for a lightweight, flexible feel.

  • 5 out of 5 These boots are very comfortable out of the box. I do not have any plans of getting any other duty boot besides Bates. I've had my other pair for over 2 years and they hold up very well. Great boot at a good price. You can't go wrong with these boots.

About Bates

Bates collage 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.
