Bates Uniform Footwear is the gold standard in uniform footwear. Bates Footwear has outfitted military and law enforcement personnel with premium dress and tactical footgear since 1887. Bates boots and Bates shoes are worn by military personnel in nearly forty countries around the world. The Bates footwear brand has been part of Wolverine World Wide since 1969. Bates Footwear uses the finest components and materials in the construction of its boots and shoes, including Gore-Tex and Vibram.
Unlike most uniform footwear competitors, Bates' entire business is military boots, military shoes, and duty footwear for police, postal, and other uniformed public services. Bates Uniform Footwear is one of the largest suppliers of military and duty footwear -- and Anchortex is one of the leading distributors of Bates fine uniform boots, Bates uniform shoes, Bates duty boots, and Bates duty shoes.
