This month Bates launches Strike, two tactical leather boots, that feature Bates new Endurance Performance System. Both the 6” and 8” boot are waterproof, breathable, stylish, and offer this new comfort technology. The Endurance Performance System is made up of four parts. First, there is a dual density footbed with memory foam that provides support and cushion. Second, the dual density EVA mitigates shock and redistributes pressure for lasting comfort. Next is an insole with a nylon shank to add support and stability. Lastly, there is a durable outsole that is slip resistant and designed for traction and stability.
In addition to the Strike product, other popular spring styles include Bates Code 6 Collection. This line features the lightest and most breathable boots Bates offers in a 4”, 6” and 8” version. Another customer favorite is the durable and dependable Velocitor. The Velocitor comes in two styles, a black leather lace up and waterproof side-zip version.
