Bates® Combat Boots provide your feet with tough, breathable comfort. These high-performance boots are used by British MoD (Ministry of Defence) members serving in harsh, desert conditions. Full-grain leather with ballistic nylon upper and a soft, padded collar give you a tough, tactical boot that is ready-to-go with no break-in period required. Durable PK mesh lining is breathable and the removable PESU II Insole offers cushioned comfort. A nylon shank maintains stability for heel-to-toe instep support. Oil- and slip-resistant UltraLites rubber outsoles use a mini-lug tread for all-around traction regardless of the surface.
