Bates Footwear has introduced the “Beltline” as the latest in its line of touring boots.

Utilizing more than 100 years of experience making technical footwear for the US Armed Forces, the Beltline is constructed of double-stitched full grain leather and nylon, with molded TPU heel protection. Poron XRD high impact foam provides inner and outer ankle protection, and TPU toe reinforcements minimize wear on the shoe from the shift lever. The hidden lacing system and patented molle strap allows laces to be tucked away from moving parts. An internal EVA midsole also makes the shoe comfortable to walk in while off the bike, while the oil and slip-resistant rubber outsole provides firm footing at a stop.

The Beltline by Bates Footwear is now in stock and available for $195. You can purchase a pair online and through select PowerSports dealers. Visit to learn more.
