Bates Introduces the Annobon Boot


I’ve been wearing a pair of the new Annobon boots from Bates Footwear for about a month now. Billed as a modernized jungle boot, they are offered in 6″ and 8″ heights. I’ve had the taller model. I’ve got to tell you that they are comfortable and light. Sure, I’ve had several pairs of lighter boots but these incorporate a fairly beefy, lugged sole which offers a good balance between weight and durability.

The most interesting feature of the Annobon is the mesh lining. Rather than the fabric liner found on most boots, the Annobon is lined with a mesh that helps with breathability. The 8″ boot is available in both Desert Tan and Black while the 6″ version is only in Black. The Black variants feature smooth leather and nylon uppers while Desert Tan is Suede with nylon.
