    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.

    • 5 out of 5 Bought a pair of these in 2010 in Iraq. Have used these on numerous field missions. Took them through US Army Sapper school in 2013. I deploy in 3 months to Afghanistan,guess what pair of boots are still serviceable and coming with me. They took me about 2 months to break in but when they do there is nothing that can hurt them, they can take anything. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE BOOTS. SGT Miller US ARMY

    • 5 out of 5 I had these boots for 2 years. Even after getting a cut on the side, my fault, I glued the cut together and still use them in the field. The soles look like they are 6 months old, not 2 years.

    • Worth the Price

    • 5 out of 5 I wanted to make sure that whatever boots I got would last for awhile, so I plunked down a little bit more change in order to get a high quality boot. I've worn these M-8s now for nearly a year and am very, very glad that I opted for a design with Vibram soles. The soles have held up very well over rugged terrain and show no signs of wearing out. They're plenty tall enough, that's for sure, but I don't mind that little bit of compromise as long as everything else is sturdy and comfortable. I have no idea why Bates is so cheap on the laces, though, because they needed replacing pretty quickly. The lace loops are rock solid, though. Practically NO breaking-in time and a purchase I'd make again!

    • 4 out of 5 Great, lightweight boot. Runs a tad large so order 1/2 size smaller than what you would normally wear.
