Bates 922 boot review by Marine veteran
If you’re looking for a durable, comfortable, boot, look no further than the Bates Tropical Seals. I have owned these for 5 years and worn them for work as a DOD contractor and LEO. We have the same boot in the Corps, but in a desert suede which are equally incredible. From foot patrols in dry rocky terrain to a beat in the city, these boots never let me down. 12-18 days on foot and anyone’s feet will hurt, but these made it better than any other boots I’ve owned. The sole is more of a urban tactical sole than a combat boot. It’s forward oriented tread makes running on hard surfaces easier than with a more traditional blocky combat sole.These are the boots the Navy Seals are issued in training. And as I mentioned, the Marine Corps is using the same boot in a rough-out tan. They’re that good. After 5 years of hard use, my soles are just starting to show some wear.

The Bates Boots are a great overall training boot as it protects the foot while draining easily when getting in and out of the water. The Dura-Shock sole also helps on long runs and continual pounding running to the chow hall and obstacle course.

Under Armour Valsetz Tactical Boots Review

WHAT’S IT DO? Our police and military customers had a problem. They needed a boot that was durable and rugged enough to put up with all terrains, but light enough for speed and maneuverability. UA took up the challenge, designing a running-shoe-tactical-boot hybrid. What you get is a boot we are proud to get positive feedback about…from the streets of Chicago to the hills of Afghanistan.

Under Armour Valsetz Tactical Boots Review by Fernie
I bought these boots and have worn them for about a week. I will never buy another brand of boot. In my opinion they feel no different than a pair of cross trainers or running shoes. They are the most comfortable pair of boots I have owned. I am sold!
