Bates Footwear knows spring is a difficult season for footwear. The range of temperatures and precipitation can drive you crazy. We know that you still need waterproof footwear in April, but we also know that you need it to be lightweight and breathable for those days where the temperature shoots up. Bates has you covered in both areas, we offer a wide variety of boots that give you the waterproof protection that you need, while making sure your boots are still lightweight and breathable. Our product development team has made it a priority to make sure our waterproof boots are usable in any environment. The following boots all provide the waterproof fortification and the lightweight ride that make getting through your shift that much easier.
