The cushioned removable footbed and moulded EVA midsole provides comfort from heel to toe. This means that they remain comfortable even after long periods of time wearing them. The slip resistant rubber outsole will perform well in demanding conditions, providing great stability.

The bates GX8 – Gore- Tex 8” boot is suitable for all Police, Military and Security personnel. This boot is also good for general everyday use such as walking or hiking due to the high specifications it offers.
It is available in sizes 4 – 14 and suitable for both men and women. Take a look at what some happy customers have to say about the boots:

“Thought I’d try these boots as I fancied a change from the other well known brands that exist. I also thought it would be great to try a waterproof boot for a change. The first thing I noticed was how comfortable the heal area and sole was. It felt really spongy and the boot has loosened up nicely with a few months wear. I really like these boots and would definitely consider buying Bates again come replacement time.”

“Supremely comfy - did some miles in them at Glastonbury weekend after getting blisters from going barefoot in my trainers (underestimated the amount of walking!). These were like a cushion of air even with my blisters. Use them mainly as my boots for motorbiking though and they have not let in a bit of water”

“Simply love them! Bought a pair back in 2007 and had them since. Did many hours in them on and off duty. Used and abused them all around in different terrain and under different conditions from +30 to -20. Obviously you need proper socks when it's cold because they are not designed for what I put them through. Had them for 5 years and they still look almost as new. The sole is almost flat now but otherwise good ... They are light as well in comparison to other boots and that was another reason why I bought them. Good when you need to run on walk long distance. Highly recommend!”

If you want a good quality boot which is lightweight, stable and durable boot then look no further than the Bates GX-8 – Gore- Tex 8” Boot.

Good when you need to run on walk long didistance. Highly recommend!

Bloody good boots these

Bought these for my Son, and he can't priase them enough! Having joined the Air Cadets, we purchased some basic combat boot as he was going to do a Cosford march of 50 miles. He came home having completed it, with the most horrendous blisters, worst I have ever seen. We put it down to maybe the size was wrong and he needed a bigger size, so we ordered the next size up. After another march, they were so worn down and had a hollow heel, on top of that still more blisters! Well this year, my son is doing Nijmegen march in Holland which is 100 miles in 4 days, so will be training every month with a 50 mile march leading up to the main event. Obviously, this time we knew we needed boots to fit the job, and so after much research we settled on these boots. Well so far my Son has completed 4 training weekends of 50 miles each and another separate 50 miles march this weekend and , so they have walked 225 miles so far, he is so impressed with them, that I just wanted to share this to any potential buyer in the same situation with which boots to choose. In all this time My Son has only suffered one tiny blister which we put down to the socks he was wearing as they had bobbled. He said they are the most comfortable boots, and has been recommending them to his squadron to anyone about to buy new boots. After all that marching, there is hardly any wear to the soles and heels, and the shape of the boots natually fits the shape of the heel and ankle, meaning they do not rub up and down like his old boots did that had no heel shape. Also, two of the marches my Son did, was in horrendous weather conditions with driving rain, but the boots stayed completely dry inside. They do build up natural moisture inside as you would expect, like today when it was really hot conditions, but with the removable insoles they soon dry out,and can also be washed easily to stop odours. All in all I would recommend these boots. I paid £89 on offer, and consider this well worth every penny, considering the previous two pairs cost £44 each and was not up to the job. These bates boots will definately go on for a long long time yet, and when eventually they do wear out, we will be replacing them with exactly the same ones again!

Got these boots to replace my 2nd pair Oakley Assault Boots. Was looking for something that was as light & comfy as them, but was sick of the Oakley soles wearing down in months. Oakley's are like wearing slippers from the very first wear. I phoned up patrolstore & spoke about these & others were told they were really light & easy wearing. The boots are lighter than some boots, but not any wear near as light as I expected by far. The boots are no where near as comfy / easy wearing as I expected just feel like any normal boots / budget boots. The sole appears like it will be very hard wearing though, but only time will tell.

SUPERB!!
