Bates Launches Athletic, Lightweight Tactical Footwear

SRT-7 Product ShotBates SRT and SRT-7 offer a new generation of footwear for public service professionals. Designed with action-contoured DuraFLEX instead of conventional leather uppers, these boots and shoes move faster and take corners sharper, just like high performance athletic shoes.

FX365BC16E2001The line consists of a 7” boot and an oxford, both of which are the lightest pair of footwear in Bates line-up, weighing 14.9 oz. and 12.8 oz. respectively. The products also don’t crack or stretch overtime like many leather boots tend to do with wear. There is no need to polish, just wipe with a damp cloth to keep them shining like new.

  • Molded DuraFLEX upper that is durable and easy to clean.
  • Lightweight and breathable mesh panels and tongue.
