14 10 2016

ROCKFORD, MI – October 14, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Bates Footwear has officially launched its 2017 PowerSports Line at AIMExpo. Drawing on their extensive heritage making boots for the U.S. Armed Forces, Bates Footwear developed the PowerSports Line to offer motorcyclists a new choice in footwear that delivers performance, protection and all-day comfort both on and off the bike. These trademark characteristics were carried over into the development of the 2017 PowerSports Line, which includes two all-new models that are 100% sourced and manufactured in the United States, as well as an all-new cold weather boot and new colorways for select models.


Made in America – Freedom and Bomber
New to the PowerSports Line are the American-made Freedom and Bomber. The 6-inch Freedom and the 9-inch Bomber feature leather and nylon uppers with a rugged Vibram® outsole, Poron XRD® impact foam and toe shift reinforcement.
