Bates Boots: 2268 Men's 8 Inch Waterproof Tactical Boots
Do you ever wish you had a trained monkey to tie your boots? Hooks, eyes, grommets, laces--sometimes it can be easier to raid a drug den than it can be to put your boots on. That's why you need a pair of Bates 2268 GX-8 Gore-Tex Waterproof 8 Inch Tactical Boots. They have a side-zip design that ensures you can get in and out of your boots quickly. Once they're tied to the tightness you like, you can use the side zipper for easy on and off.
Featuring an upper crafted with waterproof leather and ballistic nylon, these black boots are designed to be strong and lasting. Bates Boots Gore-Tex waterproof lining keeps the interior of the boots absolutely dry.
In addition to protection against wet work conditions, the boots also deliver plenty of comfort. The removable, cushioned insole cradles your foot from heel to toe, making sure each step is a comfortable one. The cushioned EVA midsole adds even more support to your walk by absorbing and redistributing the impact of each step. Your stride will stay stable and steady with the support of slip-resistant rubber outsoles.
Athletic cement-construction and a non-metallic shank make for a comfortable stride. A shank is a rectangle of rigid material in the sole of the boot that forces the shoe to break appropriately when you bend your foot. A shoe without a shank, or an improperly-placed one, is uncomfortable and can cause rubbing and pinching. These Bates boots, with their non-metallic shanks, are lightweight and break where you want them to.
If you have hard-to-tie boots, a monkey is not the solution. Vet bills and new-born-sized diapers have no place in police work, and the banana peels are down-right dangerous. The fact is, your boots shouldn't complicate your life. Bates 2268 GX-8 Gore-Tex Waterproof 8 Inch Tactical Boots are simply the best boots for the job.
