Which boots?

Recommended Posts

I'm deciding between two pairs of boots:

http://www.amazon.com/Original-S-W-A-T-Met...f=pd_sbs_shoe_3

 

The Original SWAT aren't US made, and the Bates MAY be, but I'm not entirely sure. The Bates nylon is a higher denier. The Original SWAT is already 1000 denier, I don't personally believe that anything higher is necessary. The one thing I don't like on the Original SWAT is the air pocket in the heel; I've heard about those popping on other shoes.

Which of the two boots would you suggest?

Bates. I believe they are great boots anyway, but the other pair looks cheap I think. Plus, Bates are freaking comfortable. Like, they get worn all day no problems comfortable :a-laugh:

I wouldn't even let that stop you... LE and EMT both use Bates, be it shoes or boots. I have a pair of five year old Bates and they are still looking good, just a bit smelly :a-laugh:
