Bates Footwear was inspired to launch its new Bates Moto brand when the company began manufacturing boots for motorcycle-mounted law enforcement officers. The Bates Moto line draws on the experiences and insights gathered during the production of these boots to build a superior product for the street that will deliver the performance and protection that riders need, while remaining comfortable enough for the rider to wear off the bike as well.

The Bates Moto line incorporates high-tech materials like Poron XRD impact-absorbing foam, as well as molded TPU protectors, XRD ankle protection, breathable waterproof membrane lining, abrasion-resistant leather and nylon fibers, and reinforced stitching. These features are seamlessly blended into the design to provide superior protection and durability while retaining the comfort and flexibility the Bates brand is known for.

Bates Moto products debuting at the SHOT Show include the following:

SP500 “Adrenaline”

The Adrenaline is created for the truly driven rider who is looking to maximize comfort and performance without sacrificing protection. The SP500 offers the highest level of protection, with features like Poron XRD ankle protection to dissipate impact energy, abrasion resistant leather, and an oil and slip resistant rubber outsole for maximum grip. Comfort features like a waterproof lining and cushioned insert make this the perfect boot for sport, touring and adventure riders.

Where were these boots 12 years ago when I was on motors? Had to wear the stupid, impractical, oven hot knee highs that were such a joy to have to walk or stand in while doing traffic control.
