Bates Boots: Men's Zero Mass 8 Inch Black Military Work Boots 5161
Do you feel like your feet are dragging at the end of the day? Is picking them up just so you can take a step exhausting? That's because most boots aren't made properly; they're just too heavy. Bates 5161 Men's 8 Inch Black Zero Mass Military Boots are designed to be lightweight, so your steps will practically float.
The uppers are made with durable leather and YKK nylon side zippers that let you bypass the full-front lacing system. The flexible leather cleans up easily to keep your boots looking sharp, but more importantly it's durable to resist wear and tear.
The lightweight construction won't bog you down. It also won't make you sweat. Inside, these boots are fully lined with breathable, moisture-wicking material that draws sweat away from skin to keep it cooler and dryer. The insoles are made with AureRight mildew proof materials in a lightweight, shock-resistant design. The anti-bacterial insoles are breathable, comfortable and soft under your feet.
Compression-molded EVA foam creates a cushioning midsole layer. Tough cement construction creates a durable bond between sole and shoe. The durable rubber outsoles resist shock so your feet bounce back from impact. Wearing these Bates 5161 Men's 8 Inch Black Zero Mass Military Boots definitely won’t be a drag.

light and easy...
I ran these for a while when the navy still had utilities for their working uniform, seemed to do really well, very light so that helped reduce fatigue. The side zipper makes them easy to get in and out of. This is really key when you get woken up in the middle of the night to a ships alarm. The bates name has been around for a while, these boots held up to that standard.
Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company.
I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped.
Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
