COMPOSITE SAFETY TOE
Compared to their steel toe counterparts the composite toes are manufactured using lightweight materials to make the shoe weigh less while meeting ASTM standards. These shoes meet ASTM F2413-11 I/75 C/75.
The soles of EH shoes provide a barrier to protect employees from open electrical currents up to 600 volts. EH shoes are often needed in maintenance, welding and engineering positions. All styles marked with the “EH” icon in this catalog meet the ASTM F2413-11 EH standard.
This waterproof breathable material allows air circulation, but does not let water in. It is guaranteed 100% waterproof.
Waterproof boots and shoes are constructed to keep the feet dry and comfortable in wet conditions. Waterproof construction requires continuous maintenance and is not guaranteed to remain for the life of the shoe.
Slip resistant safety footwear is the fastest growing segment of the safety footwear industry. For many employers with wet, oily, and/or greasy floors, it is common sense to require slip resistant safety footwear. Slip related injuries can be extremely costly. No shoe is slip proof, however employers who require slip resistant shoes can reduce worker’s compensation claims.

First pair of Bates, won't be my last!
I am spoiled by my employer with a very generous boot allowance every 6 months, I only mention that because without it, I probably wouldn't have taken a chance with a brand of boots that I had never used before. Boy, am I glad that I did! Just a phenomenal boot from top to bottom!
-They may be the lightest pair of 8" boots w/safety-toe ever
-They are perhaps the most durable boot I have ever worn, I work 12 hours and then go work a few more in the yard at home and I haven't noticed any deterioration of any glue seems or sole wear
-The side zipper, that I thought was a gimmick initially, is awesome! I no longer have to pull with all my strength to get the boots as snug as I like them, the zipper allows me to get them as snug as I like with little to no effort at all.
-The most important thing though, is the COMFORT! I can honestly say that they are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn, without question!OverallComfortArch Support: Excellent arch supportSize: Felt true to sizeWidth: Felt true to width
