2nd pair I have purchased

Since this is the 2nd pair I have owned I love them. Wore out the first pair in a year but wore them all the time. I do a lot of walking and it is really important that these fit and feel great. You can tie the laces to your comport and fit and then just use the zippers to take them on and off. Laces last forever this way.

I'm on my feet all day on concrete floors. These shoes are light and comfortable. I used to wear heavy steel toe shoes until I found these. Now these light and comfortable shoes don't make my 10 hour day feel like a 20 hour day.

best boots

I'm an action sports photographer, so I deal with a variety of conditions while working. Indoor, outdoor, on the water and in rough terrain, rain and muddy conditions, usually in crowds who don't really care whose feet they stomp on. I use different types and brands of boots for different assignments, whichever works best, ... Gill, Thorogood, Converse, and now Bates GX8. Of all my boots, the Bates GX8 are the best, by far. They fit like they are custom-made. No "bite" anywhere. No break-in period. Super comfortable right out of the box. They are snug where they should be snug, and have room where they should have room. I usually have trouble with boots rubbing my ankle bone until broken-in. These boots are designed to have some extra space next to the ankle bone, while fitting snug and secure above and below the bone. The comp toebox is wide and high enough for toe room, with no contact. The soles are stable, and the lacing system allows perfect adjustment, top, middle and bottom. The zipper does what it's supposed to, allowing me to get in and out of the boots without relacing. While looks don't really matter much with work boots, the GX8s look great - I bought the Desert Sand style. The leather is easily cleaned, and they look good enough to wear casually. The best part, besides the great fit, is that these boots feel strong and secure from top to bottom, and front to back. They don"t have any weak spots anywhere. In my opinion, they are perfect.
