Bates has ushered in a new generation of footwear for public service professionals with the Bates SRT Black 7-Inch Tactical Uniform Boot. Designed to keep you quick on your feet, these tactical boots are the lightest the company has made to date. Utilizing an easy to clean upper made of DuraFLEX material, the SRT Tactical Boot will not stretch and crack over time, all while providing you with the flexible mobility that you need out in the streets. On top of that, these tactical boots feature lightweight and breathable mesh on the side panels and tongue to allow proper ventilation and reduce the risk of painful heat blisters as well as the general discomfort associated with sweaty feet. On the inside, the SRT Tactical Boot uses a midsole cushioned with EVA, a lightweight internal nylon shank, and removable cushioned insert with added arch support. EVA is a comfort technology often used in high-performance athletic footwear, giving these tactical boots the same degree of plush comfort you get in your favorite pair of tennis shoes. Except you get that comfort the whole day and not just when you're winding down in the locker room going off-duty.
In the way of function, Bates equipped the SRT with the essentials. First there's a molded heel counter for a solid and locked down fit, offering you superior stability when you have to get up and go. Then there's the slip resistant rubber outsole to provide you with outstanding traction on virtually any surface, because you can't rightly protect and serve down on the ground. The outsole also features reinforced toe stitching for increased durability to this high traffic area of the foot.
