When stifling heat and relentless sun beats down on you in desert operations or exercises, the last thing you want is for your feet to give out due to swelling, excess moisture, fatigue or friction injuries. Bates has designed this 8” Tactical Sport Desert boot to be breathable and moisture-wicking so your feet can carry you and the weaponry and heavy protective clothing you have to wear.
For one thing, Bates has designed the uppers of this boot using its proprietary Wolverine Warrior pigskin leather, which has built-in climate control to keep feet cool and dry: Hundreds of tiny holes in the breathable, mesh lining allow air to flow through and cause moisture to transfer out of the boot.
These lightweight, ballistic nylon and leather sport desert boots provide excellent support for marches, sentry duty, fast roping and insertions and resist oil, dirt and water; they’re easy to clean with soap and water or a good brush.
The aggressive outsole also provides outstanding grip and shock absorption in shifting sands.
