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!

    Fantastic boots! Very durable and very comfortable.
    January 23, 2015
    These are the most comfortable boots I have put on my feet new. Usually it takes a few marches to break in new boots. Not these. No blisters or hot spots after hours of hiking. Love 'em!!!!
    Price, durability, and comfort.
    I only ordered one pair.

    Best boot I've ever owned
    August 3, 2014
    I am a pretty active person, I hike, camp, fish, shoot, and work out in my yard. I have never had a boot that was as comfortable and durable as this. I purchased an extra pair so that when I do wear the first ones out I will have a back up to keep me from being heart broken.
    rugged and comfortable
    takes some getting used to getting them on and off

    Excellent Boot
    June 19, 2014
    Comfortable from the minute I put my feet in them. Gave them there first workout tonight. Walked 4+ miles at my job on concrete floors. My feet feel awesome. My feet have never felt better after a shift. They run a tad small. Order a 1/2 size bigger.
    Comfortable, great feel.

    Perfect for the price.
    June 1, 2014
    I haven't had the boots for too long, but so far they are pretty good. So far, I believe they are worth more than what I paid for them. They are a little tight right now, but will get more comfortable as I finish breaking them in. The back of the heal is a little hard and hopefully that will also break in. Otherwise they are a good looking pair of boots. I plan to take them on longer hikes during deer season. Will see how they hold up then. I would definitely recommend them.

    Good Value
    May 31, 2014
    They were true to others comments - get one size larger and one size wider than what you normally wear!! Other than that, these boots are very comfortable and seem well made. Only time will tell how they hold up. Thus far... after several weeks of daily use, they are working out nicely!! If they were still available I would have bought another pair!!
    Low Cost Very Comfortable (no break-in period) Easy on
    Tongue design is a bit odd and takes some getting used to.

    One slipper, one torture device
    May 16, 2014
    I wear a size 9.5 regular shoe. I ordered a size 10W. When I put on the left boot it was like putting on a high quality slipper, pure heaven. Then I put on the right boot. I felt a terrible pain on the tip on the rear of my right heel. I laced up the boot and took a couple steps. The pain was unbearable. At this point I don't know what to do except put them in the closet and forget about the money I lost. If both boots felt like the left one they would be some of the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. Unfortunately, they are just taking up space in my closet.

    Great boots. Took a few wears to break in the hard heel but after that they are the best pair of boots I've ever had! I wish I would have ordered more than one pair before they ranout.

    Awesome boots
    May 12, 2014
    I bought several because I wasn't sure which size would be right for me. I ended up with one size larger than I normally wear. I'd buy another pair if my size was in stock. The new version that will replace these will have more leather being replaced with nylon and I hated the new Army nylon boots vs. the old canvas jungle boots, so these are better quality IMO.
    Well built, extremely comfortable.
    None yet.

    Still breaking in but...
    May 7, 2014
    These boots are my preferred boots for work, hiking, and early season hunting. They're so good I bought two pairs to replace my 14 month old pair that are still kicking (after replacing an eyelet that came out 10 months after purchase). These boots are so good they put my $200 pair of (chinese manufactured) Rocky's to shame. I had less than a 1/4 of the hours of wear on the Rocky's before the soles came apart (maybe from being exposed to oil). Beware though, they are made with good materials so they take about 2 weeks to break in (to where i either don't get blisters or build up enough callous to where they don't bother me). The soles have good traction and the padding is good enough that even after hours of walking on concrete my feet don't hurt.
    Durable Good traction Very affordable American made Breathable upper for warm weather Easy to put on after loosening laces
    Not waterproof Not good for cold weather Harder to break in than some

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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
