  • 4 out of 5 Just got out of Boot Camp, and i purchased these as soon as i Graduated, they are really light and comfortable, haven't done any ruck marches or any CFT's yet to truly see how they hold up, but hopefully these will preform well during MCT. Only issue is the sizing is weird, i wear 10.5 regular and 10 wide RAT Boots, and these i bought size 9 Medium which fit perfectly Bates Lites

  • 4 out of 5 The boots themselves are fine. The only reason they get 4 stars is because when they arrived they had a small amount of damage on the right boot, right side where the seam of the sole meets the leather. Outside of that these boots are fantastic. I have gone running a few times in them so far and no blisters or discomfort.

  • Awesome Boots

  • 5 out of 5 I have had these boots almost two months now, and put roughly 180 miles on them so far. I walk/run every day and usually hike several miles on the weekends. These boots offer great comfort straight out of the box and have good support. They are super easy to keep clean with a brush, very water/stain resistant, and extremely durable. Thanks Bates for a great boot, and TacticalGear.com for the service!

  • 5 out of 5 These boots are absolutely amazing, I bought them to prepare for OCS for the Marine Corps and I couldn't be more impressed with the boots. I am going to recommend these to the rest of the Poolees going to OCS. Great buy!

  • 4 out of 5 Ive had these boots for two years now, they are my first choice for dog mushing and hiking. Occasionally i have footing problems, lucky havent destroyed my ankle yet. Warm, waterproof and lightweight, best pair ive owned to date!

  • 5 out of 5 I bought two pair I purchased in 2010 and 2011, both are great, fitting good right out of the box. When they get caked in mud or moon dust just use a scrub brush and water and they look as good as new. Great arch, and heel support, shale and rocks dont seem to bother them or my feet.

  • not for OCS

  • 5 out of 5 These boots are great. Fresh out of the box I broke them in on a 12 mile hump and had not problems. These boots are NO LONGER ALLOWED AT OCS, which is why I'm looking for a new pair, sad to say.

  • 5 out of 5 Bought these boots 2 years ago. Have never had a pair of boots that are this comfortable to wear and could stand up to the assault my feet take every day. The Idaho terrain, weather, and cinder rock has a tendency to eat boots and spit them out. My peers have bought 2-3 pairs of boots in the time I've had mine. While everybody else with issue boots are slipping around on the ice, my feet have been firmly planted. Its almost like there are little cleats on the bottom. The soles have began to wear, but the construction of the boot itself is still in good shape. Get these boots, you won't regret it.

  • 5 out of 5 These boots are amazing. I did over 300 foot patrols in Iraq in 2007 and never once did I have any trouble with these boots. In fact I still where them now. Nothing is falling apart, the tread still looks good. I couldn't of asked for a better boot.

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.
