Boot Height: Approx. 8'' Tall. This boot’s marching orders are to keep you light on your feet and extremely energized. Made with leather and resilient Cordura uppers on top of Bates DuraShocks technology that uses patented compression pads built into the forefoot and heel to absorb shock while returning energy back up through the feet and legs. The DuraShocks outsole weighs only a third as much as rubber, and is slip-resistant as well.
