THIS ITEM DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR FREE SHIPPING OR PROMOTIONAL ITEMS! Some of these boots feature only minor imperfections- very small leather scuffs, welts not 100% lined up, etc. Please note that these boots are final sale and cannot be returned! The only reason for return LA Police Gear will accept on this item is for it being the wrong size/wrong fit. By ordering, you acknowledge that these boots may arrive with minor imperfections. However, the majority of the boots are a first quality version that was denied military use by the USMC.

UPDATED PRODUCT INFORMATION: LA Police Gear has begun to run out of supply for the imperfect version of this boot (the 29502D model), and has now begun selling the 29502A, first quality version instead. The 29502A boot was contracted to be made by Bates for the USMC, but once the boots made it to the field, the USMC realized that the boots needed a few subtle design tweaks. Bates is still currently making a newer version of these boots for the USMC, making this first model an overstock special. They are first quality boots. Both the imperfect (29502D) and first quality (29502A) boots are still being shipped at this time, and we are not able to accept any requests. By ordering you acknowledge that you may receive either version.

    Good Ol Boots!
    June 11, 2013
    I couldn't pass up a great deal on a pair of boots made in the USA. The boots I received were in exellent condition and comfortable since day one. I can wear them all day and when I take them off my feet are bone dry! I still have some foot fatigue at the end of a 9-10 hour shift standing on concrete, but that is to be expected from most any shoe/boot. Overall this is looking like a great pair tough work boots that should last a while. Get em while they got em!

    April 22, 2014
    In the beginning my only issue with these boots were the hard heel cups. I guess this is their major flaw. But it only took me a few hikes to break them in, and now they're very comfortable. $40 for such solid boots!? Hell yeah! So no more b*tching about a few initial blisters from me... At first I had ordered them 1/2 a size too large, but returned them with no problems. When I called the CSR even waived the shipping costs, and my new boots arrived after 2 days. Fast and friendly service, at a great price - what else can you ask for!?
    Pros:
    - Inexpensive - Solid workmanship - Comfortable - Breathable - Great tread (Vibram sole) - Match all my tan/coyote brown tactical pants
    Cons:
    - Hard / tight heel cups - Require some break-in time

    Save your money!
    April 20, 2014
    I have worn Bates boots for the last twenty-five years and I have never had an issue till now. Save your money, their is a reason why the Marine Corps killed the contract on these boots. They run about a size too small and during the break in period they took chunks of flesh out of my heels. I had my wife try them on (she is a size smaller) and she complained about pressure above the heel as well. Save your money, don’t gamble and loose like I did.

    great boot for the money
    April 19, 2014
    nice sturdy boot. The tongues on the boot were way to big. i have to fold them to completely tie the boot tight. I guess that's why they were refused by the military. overall I would definitely recommend these boots.
    Pros:
    sturdy. well made.

    Most comfortable
    April 17, 2014
    Most comfortable boot I've ever had. I fit between two sizes, no half sizes once you hit size 12. These actually came in a 13.5 size so I had the proper width and length finally. The insole is extremely good, proper soft, traction is great. I was very upset when my son took them to wear, he wears a 10.5. So I had to get him his own pair. I ordered a second pair for myself as well.
    Pros:
    Comfort, size selection, quality
    Cons:
    None!

    Boots did not match
    April 15, 2014
    The two boots were not the same last, the left boot was 3/8 of an inch wider than the right and the boot fit very poorly, while the right boot was a perfect fit. I applied for a return which took a week and two emails to get an answer and I have been waiting for the return papers since I was notified on 4-7-2014, also over a week now. Poor customer service after the sale for sure! I do want the boots, just a pair not a mismatch.

    Well made pair of boots for 40 bucks, can't beat it. Boots did seem a little snug, might want to order up 1/2 size.

    High value/low dollar boot!
    April 15, 2014
    First off - amazing boot for the money! Worth twice what I paid. My only issue was the fact that they seem to run a little big. I normally wear an 11 1/2 -12 and the reviews said that they may run small so I opted for the 12's and they are slighty too long. They are such a great value I am ordering another pair in 11 1/2.
    Pros:
    Excellent Quality
    Cons:
    Sizing slightly off

    Bates USMC RAT Boots
    April 14, 2014
    I took a chance on these boots because I didn't think you could go wrong at 39.99. That"s an understatement! Best boots I've ever owned. Durable, dry and extremely comfortable! I've been wearing them for a year on the mean streets of Baltimore, and they show no signs of wear.

    Are these made in the USA?
    on October 24, 2012

    Answer:
    Yes, the RAT Boots are made in the USA.

    By Jim on November 20, 2012
    Do these boots have a side zipper? Thanks
    on November 20, 2012

    Answer:
    These boots do NOT have a side zipper.

    By Claudio on December 3, 2012
    Do you have them in black color?
    on December 3, 2012

    Answer:
    We only have these RAT boots in the tan color that is pictured.

    By Jim Johnson on December 3, 2012
    Are these boots really made for Rats? If so why would anyone buy them?
    on December 3, 2012

    Answer:
    RAT stands for Rugged All Terrain. Bates does not make these boots for rats YET.

    By Moses Matlin on December 3, 2012
    Why is the EGA stamped out? Is it possible to get a pair without the EGA stamped out? Thanks
    on December 3, 2012

    Answer:
    The EGA was stamped out because they were rejected by the USMC. It is not possible to get a pair without the logo stamped out because they are stamped out at the factory before they get to us.

    By Kirill on October 25, 2012
    what's the weight of these shoes?
    on October 25, 2012

    Answer:
    The weight on a size 8 is about 28oz. for the pair.

    By Kerry on December 3, 2012
    What does it mean by "The EGA has neen sramped out"? Does that mean the it is not on the boots that we buy?
    on December 3, 2012

    Answer:
    The EGA Logo (Eagle, Globe and Anchor) which is the Marine emblem, has been stamped out since they are not built to USMC Standards. If you look at the picture, on the outer heel, there was an EGA emblem on the boot but there is now a bar over the eagle, that is how they stamped out the EGA emblem.

    By Gerald on November 7, 2012
    What are the color of both models of boots?
    on November 7, 2012

    Answer:
    There is only one color for these boots, one of the pictures is misleading. All of these boots are a tan color.

    By Steve on February 17, 2013
    In several Q&As you have stated that if this boot doesn't fit, simply exchange them for the correct size. Yet your website clearly states that there are NO returns/exchanges for CLOSEOUTS. Please verify now (and if possible, give me someone's name that I can use if/when I try to exchange this boot); if I order these boots and they do NOT fit, can I exchange them for correct size? Or did I just burn approx $50 (for boots plus s/h) on boots that are now useless??
    on February 17, 2013

    Answer:
    For most closeout items, they are not returnable. However for these boots, they are exchangeable for another size if the ones you receive are the wrong size. If you view the description on the product page, the fourth sentence says: The only reason for return LA Police Gear will accept on this item is for it being the wrong size/wrong fit. If you need to return the boots for this reason, just refer to this and you can tell them Adam told you the boots are exchangeable for another size.

    By Kirill on October 26, 2012
    Could you tell me what's the dimensions of box and weight(Size 10W)? Thanks,
    on October 26, 2012

    Answer:
    The dimensions of the box are 13.5"(L) x 13"(W) x 5"(D). The weight of the boots in the box is 4.9lbs.
