Latest Bates customer reviews
Like wearing two faithful dogs on your feet
922 8-Inch Tropical Seals Durashocks® Review:
This is maybe my 8th pair of these boots, and I'll keep buying them as long as they make them. The On-Line Shoes discount was nice. I've worn these in Africa, on mud runs, on the water, moving (literally) tons of material at work, and they work pretty well with a nice cigar, too.
I would buy this product again
