Bates Boots History

Founded in 1885, Bates has grown and flourished as a result of their advancements in footwear technologies and unwavering commitment to those who depend on their products. What was founded as a small dress footwear business has become a leading footwear manufacturer for uniformed personnel today.

The choice to focus on military dress shoes for the United States Navy in the 1960s came on the heels of decades of prosperity and was influenced by both the need to produce a better product for those who served and their sense of duty to do so.

The overwhelming popularity of the original Bates Navy Uniform Oxford quickly led to the development of military styles for all branches of the armed services. Soon, the demand for bates military boots and military shoes lead to a bold step of their own: Bates would dedicate 100% of its resources to making uniform footwear.

Before too long, they were producing footwear for the civilian uniformed services, as well.

While the Bates brand was literally making its way around the world in 1970s and 1980s, so was their reputation for exceptional footwear. As a result of their innovative products and dedicated customers, Bates is now outfitting elite military organizations in more than sixty countries.
