Bates GX-8 GORE-TEX Composite Toe Zip Boots are made for endurance and comfort required for a police officer or other tactical type professions. These boot uppers are made of waterproof leather to keep your feet dry from the outside elements and the added ballistic nylon increases mobility. The breathable waterproof GORE-TEX lining provides additional protection from increased precipitation and is best for all-day comfort and wear.
This boot is built for comfort with a cushioned insert, which can be removed so that the boot can breathe and fight odors when not in use. The YKK nylon side zipper allows for easy on and off action. You can tie your boots once for a comfortable fit and use the zipper to put them on and take them off your feet.
The boot gives high protection from all the things that you might encounter on the job. They are ASTM F2413-11 rated. The non-metallic composite toe keeps the boots light weight yet protects your toes from bumps and bruises. The slip resistant rubber outsole helps you to keep grip on any terrain encountered. The athletic cement construction adds more comfort to an already comfortable boot.

Fit is an essential ingredient in footwear. Properly fit Bates shoes and boots will be comfortable to wear right out of the box; they don't need to be "broken in." There are few simple guidelines that if followed can make the process easy:
- Tap your heel back in the heel cup and lace the boot. The boot should feel snug across the ball, around the instep, and in the heel. The arch should be comfortably supported and the toes should be free to wiggle and curl.
- The toes should not jam into the front of the boot. Check this by lightly tapping the toe of the boot into the floor. If the boot fits correctly, the toes should gently touch the end of the boot.
