  • The soft toe Bates Delta has a waterproof leather and nylon upper. It’s nine inches tall and the side zip makes it easy to get on and off. It’s Individual Comfort System Technology (iCS) allows for a customizable fit. It also has a cement construction, which is usually found in athletic shoes. This makes the shoe flexible and lightweight.

    What is iCS Technology?

    Bates offers an Individual Comfort System (iCS), which helps find that just-right fit. Developed by the Bates Product Design Team and wear-tested by actual customers, the iCS technology offers a flexible and effective way for consumers to define all-day comfort on their own terms.

    How iCS Technology works

    The iCS disk allows adjustment of firmness and cushion in the heel area to maximize comfort. The disk is integrated directly into the shoe’s midsole and can be placed to rest at one of the four zones. Each zone satisfies different comfort needs, allowing the user to place comfort where they want it.

    • Firm Zone:Increases energy return and maximizes all-day support
    • Outward Zone:Reduces outward tilt and encourages natural walking motion and stability
    • Cushion Zone:Increases heel cushioning and maximizes shock absorption
    • Inward Zone:Reduces inward tilt and encourages natural walking motion and stability

  • 5 out of 5 Previously, I bought my first pair of Delta 9 GTX boots from Cat5 Commerce (now Tactical Gear) and let me say that I am extremely happy I did. They have gone through thick and thin and are still in good condition. I bought another pair for use when these boots completely wear out. I highly recommend these boots to anyone in the military, law enforcement and anybody looking for comfortable, practical and high quality boots.

  • 3 out of 5 I've wore the boots one day so far. They're going to take some breaking in but they're already more stable and well built than my last pair.

  • 3 out of 5 Would give this boot 5 stars except the zipper on one of the boots only goes down half way. Comfort level is perfect but the zipper on my left boot only goes down half way and gets jammed.

  • Don't get SZ model!

  • 3 out of 5 I've had this boot for 3 months, mainly for paintball, hiking, and general outdoors work. The reason I do not recommend the SZ model is 1. The stitching around the zipper is the first thing to fall apart on both boots, the rest of the shoe is perfect so far. 2. The SZ model only comes in Black, the black model does not have the pig skin wolverine leather that the sage green and desert tan models do. The pig skin is more breathable and durable so the black boot is not the way to go. This boot is very comfortable, the ICS works great, 107 degrees no problem, and the standard lase is high quality.

Along with superior comfort, this style also includes an interior mesh lining for increased breathability, a slip-resistant outsole and an athletic cement construction. The Delta is available in nine-inch, eight-inch and six-inch heights. The combination of these features creates quality boots for ultimate performance in a variety of situations.

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.
