  • The Bates Delta Sport is more athletic shoe than tactical boot. Light and flexible, it boasts an incredibly comfortable feel. It has a cushioned EVA midsole plus a removable insert and uses Bates' Individual Comfort System to add a layer of customizability to the style.

    iCS Technology
    An iCS disk adjusts the amount of firmness and cushion in the heel area. The disk is integrated directly into the shoe's midsole and is dialed into one of four zones depending on comfort needs.
    • Firm zone: Increase energy return and makes sure you have the support you need all day
    • Outward zone: Outward tilt is stymied and instead natural walking motion and stability are encouraged
    • Cushion zone: Heel cushioning increases and shock absorption is maximized
    • Inward zone: Inward tilt is decreased and natural walking motion and stability are encourage
    • Upper: leather / nylon
    • Individual Comfort System Technology (iCS)
    • Insole is removable
    • Cushioned EVA midsole
    • Rubber outsole is slip-resistant
    • Cement construction

  • 2 out of 5 These replaced the older style Delta, I was disappointed. The insole fell apart after 3 months and the sole didn't last. I am a UPS delivery man and truly value a good pair of shoes. I am sad to say that Bates has lost a customer. The shoes are not worth the premium that I paid for them.
    We apologize that you experienced this issue with your boot's insole. Many manufacturer's offer a defective warranty. If you would like to reach out to our Customer Relations team, we are happy to check your eligibility. - TacticalGear.com

  • 5 out of 5 These shoes are excellent. They fit well and are comfortable. I have foot supination and the adjustable pad in this shoe's heel helps correct it. Hard to find a shoe that will do that. This is the only pair I've found that does.

  • 5 out of 5 Granted I've only been wearing these for one week so far, but they've been good. NO break in time was necessary. Bates did a good job, this shoe is a winner.. guess we'll see how it stands up to the test of time.

  • Comfortable, true to size fit.

  • 4 out of 5 Well-made, comfortable shoes, though I have only had them about a week and I wear them in the office. The reason I gave this shoe 4 stars is because the laces came as two different lengths. I had to cut 8 inches of slack off one of the laces to make it reasonable. Seems like quality control missed that one. Otherwise happy that these run true to size.

  • Lasted 6 Months

  • 3 out of 5 I'm on my feet for my retail job between 6 and 8 hours everyday. With that much wear, these shoes lasted about six months. The front of the shoes have rubber that is wearing off and have small tears, and the heel of the foot and ankle have worn out

About Bates Delta Sport

  • Bates Delta boots are outfitted with premium iCS (Individual Comfort System) technology. Designed to maximize individual comfort and fit, iCS technology integrates disks into a shoe's midsole in order to customize four different zones: firm zone, outward zone, cushion zone and inward zone. 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.
