Bates Boots: USMC Steel Toe Durashocks Hot Weather Boots 40501
Whether you're dealing with hot weather or ever-changing weather, these Bates 40501 Men's Tan U.S.M.C. Steel-Toe Hot Weather DuraShocks may be the best on-the-job companion you'll find. Styled after the latest in men's fashion, these boots look like fashionable footwear, feel like comfortable old tennis shoes, and stand up strongly to help you get any tough job done.
The Bates Durashocks comfort technology keep your feet cushioned no matter how intense the job or how long the walk to get you there. Durashocks absorb four times more shock resistance than rubber and last much longer, making your steps feel lighter than air. The moisture-wicking lining keeps moisture out even in wet weather while helping your feet stay dry in hot weather conditions. The removable (for easy cleaning), full cushion Bates DuraShocks insole adds another layer of comfort, softening the effect your work day has on your feet. You may be worn out at the end of a hard day, but your feet in these boots will be ready to keep on going for hours more. And with a long-lasting polyurethane midsole and a Vibram bob rubber outsole that gives you better traction while still being oil- and slip-resistant, these boots won't let you down.
The attractive Wolverine Warrior leather/nylon combination makes these some of the best-looking work boots available on the market, but the looks of the boots have nothing on the safety features. USMC certified, the steel toe is rated ASTM F2413-05 M I/75 C/75.
For boots that combine good looks, great style, comfort, and safety (like the Working Man who wears them), you want Bates 40501 Men's Tan U.S.M.C. Steel-Toe Hot Weather DuraShocks Boots.

I got these as TAP issue right before I got out of the good 'ol USMC. They've stood up to 30 mile humps, 4 months at a HAZMAT lot as a FAP, and... most amazingly, 2 years of machining work. I wear them every day standing on concrete (10+hrs a day) and they're still going strong. I started wearing them to work after trashing my "nice" boots (redwings). These things are great, repel chips like the plague (they get stuck in the tread but blow right out haven't had any stick into the actual rubber yet) and the soles have held up EXTREMELY well to coolant when I have CNC work to do. The leather has also admirably stood its ground, but it stains like the dickens. They look like crap after 4 years of absolute abuse (I'm extremely hard on boots, my redwings only lasted me a year and a half) no rips or tears just stained. I wouldn't trade them for anything. When they finally bite the dust I'll be buying another pair for sure. Whether you're kicking in teeth or crankin' handles you can't go wrong with these.
