A breakthrough in advanced comfort technology, Bates Individual Comfort System gives you the freedom to choose the setting that's right for you. The products with this technology have a midsole containing a removable disk that can be rotated among four zones to control firmness, cushion, inward and outward stability.
Great boots to wear everyday or just for work. I use them for work and play, when cleaned up even use on a causal night at the movies or dinner. The ics system is a great help due to the fact that I wear the outter side of the sole more then I prefer but with the ics system I wear the sole evenly which makes the boot last longer, saving me money, saving foot soreness and aches, on my third set ( they last about a year depending how hard you are on them )

Not gross looking work foot wear
Adds about a inch of height for us shorter guys!
My feet changed as I got older and the boots I normally wore caused me severe foot pain when walking. I tried many different types of work boots even fitting some with custom inserts that were very expensive, nothing worked. I tried a pair of these boots purchased from a local uniform company and with one adjustment of the heel disk the pain went away and never came back. I am on my fourth pair of these boots and don't wear any other type of footwear. I would highly recommend these boots to anyone with or without foot problems.
