Desert warfare means executing no-fail tasks in one of the harshest operating environments on earth. Bates has designed this tough, quick-dry, shock-absorbing GX8 composite toe desert boot for the most demanding tactical missions possible such as fast rope insertions, repelling, crawling, marching or air drops. The composite toe is stronger than some steel toe boots for that extra protection from punctures or compression injuries.
The Wolverine Warrior leather uppers are worth their weight in gold, engineered with a state-of-the-art tanning process that locks protection into every fiber. Special climate control technology repels sweat away from feet to keep them dry and cool thanks to hundreds of tiny holes that allow hot air to flow through the boot and transfer vapors out.
These boots also repel hazardous materials such as kerosene or oil, protecting feet from sparks or ignition hazards. The Bates DuraShocks technology delivers maximum shock absorption through multiple compression pads built into the heel and forefront of the outsole. And, cleaning is a breeze using little more than soap, water and a good brush. Just air dry and you’re good to go.
