For over a decade, the Bates Tactical Sport hasn’t just been keeping up with extreme expectations, it’s been elevating them - and now it just got better. The completely redesigned Bates Tactical Sport 2 takes response time to the next level - lighter, faster, and more ground-gripping than ever.
The Bates Tactical Sport 2 Mid Side-Zip CT Boots are made from full grain leather, with breathable panels and tongue, meaning your feet won't overheat on those long shifts. The Drygaurd technology is a breathable membrane that keeps your feet dry and comfortable longer by releasing sweat and moisture from the foot.
The shock absorbing insoles return energy to you, giving you additional comfort. The lightweight materials have made the Tactical Sport 2 10% lighter than it's predecessor, if you loved the original Tactical Sport, you'll love the Tactical Sport 2 even more!
