With Summer fast approaching, and the fact that we’re all gagging to get back out and play airsoft soon, perhaps it’s high time that you had a look at your seasonal footwear choice!

We’re big fans of US Brand BATES when it comes to our own footwear, with both Nige and Bill using the COBRA model in the hotter months of the year. If you like a mid cut rather than a high cuff boot though, the new RUSH is designed to respond to the speed of the game.

At its core a running shoe it’s built with the performance of a tactical boot. A lightweight breathable upper actively cools the foot, while the 4mm heel-to-toe drop provides the ultimate ground connection and stability.

Finished with a grippy rubber outsole and directional lugs for quick lateral movements, the RUSH is ready for action!
