    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.

    • 3 out of 5 I own 3 pair of these, my oldest pair since 08'. Love their durability and comfort. Problem is the last pair is at least a full size too large and the eyelets are different which makes them it harder to pull them tight by having to pull each individual cross section tight after putting them on or to taking them off. Still going to try to exchange to a smaller pair and hopefully I'll like the new ones as much.

    • 5 out of 5 The Bates Durashcocks are super comfortable and the answer I was looking for. Medium width still runs wide and I had to order a size down, FYI. You may need to do the same depending on your feet. The night I got the boots, I wore them for a PR event where I was on foot the entire time. By the end of the event the boots had wore in and were super comfortable. Also, the reordering process was very efficient and the customer service was professional with Cat5 Commerce and Tacticalgear. I will continue to shop here!

    • 5 out of 5 Best purchase I have ever made when it comes to footwear. I can wear these all day going here and there without any foot pain at the end and for a man 6'2 and 300lbs that is flat footed is a wonder of the world.

    • Excellent boot

    • 5 out of 5 I'm looking to buy my 3rd pair of these boots; I've tried others but keep coming back to these. The Dura-shock soles are very comfortable and the boots "break in" pretty quickly. I bought the Gore-tex lined ones which keep my feet dry and the insulated ones for winter which kept me warm. When my soles of my 1st pair finally started to wear out, I took them to a shop, had them resoled with a Vibram sole and still wear them regularly. They're a great boot, at a reasonable price.

    • good boot

    • 4 out of 5 I bought a pair of these boots about 6 months ago and have used them as an on duty boot at a police dept. day after day they put out very well as far as cmfort standing on the black top for hours cleaning up accidents or walking doing community event. With the shock absorbing sole and the insole that comes with the boot i have not worn anything more comfortable. great buy for the price. the only problem is the toe leather will crakle a little after many shinings of the boots great boot to wear on duty
