Comfort
Garbage, dangerous - by , Oct 09, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
Garbage, NOT SAFE. Like new, but BOTH soles spontaneously peeled off with about 1000 steps taken. After 2 station duties with these boots, I ended up in a salvage situation wearing my sneakers, great. PPE = personal protective equipment; I bought the boots to protect, not put me at GREATER RISK. Both cuff also delaminated... broken bits of black all over my socks and pants.

Bates you need to make this your number one boot. I have had the same boot with a side zip it’s all so a number one boot as well as the 5 inch in the same as the two previous boots I work in a county jail and have never had any problems with these boots best on the market . And I have tried all the rest but none compare to these boots I use to hospital security and wore these boots with no problems very comfortable and durable . Please Bates do not change any of this style of boots they are the best.

About the hot weather variant. - by , Dec 25, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
I've received yesterday a pair of the hot weather type of these boots. By second hand acquisition, but the important part its that keeps a outstanding fit, are lightweight but very durable boots. Here, in the warm weather of Santiago, Chile during the summer (yesterday we had 32° centigrade) it performs well, my feet felt very comfortable and fresh, great traction at walking or running. Definitely I wanna to buy other pair, in the composite toe and side-zipper variant directly bought from here, always that the cost, insurance and freight stays to a convenient ratio for making a shipping to Santiago, Chile.

Good Fitting Boot - by , Dec 11, 2018

I ordered my first pair over a year ago, and just received my 2nd replacement pair. Here is what i found PROS. Great fitting boot, very comfortable for someone on there feet all day. Great to exceptionall tread wear. Decent leather that holds a shine. CONS. Stiching is at best horrible. Go ahead and buy a couple bottles of “Boot-Fix Glue”. Your gonna need them. The heel stitching was the first to go....that i had resewn locally. Then slowly the side stitchings started to give. Not wanting to give up my boots i turned to the glue..... and thankfully it has held every failed seem. I’m at the point where the leather is cracking badly.....finally ordered another pair. Would i pay full price for these boots? Absolutely Not......but at 25% off.....heck yeah i will give them another try.

Best inexpensive boot for the price. - by , Jul 28, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
Ive been in EMS for 4 yrs, 2018. This boot has been my favorite for being inexpensive and has been the first and only boot i worn in EMS. Been through walking, running, Probably gping to pay more now to get a better quality one. Almost 8-10 months the fabric at the heel wore out for me almost every time. I try to get new boots before winter so they last a year for me. I have one pair as a backup and had to add a sole for comfort but the tred is very worn.

I've tried many brands and none compare to these. They look fantastic and feel amazing. Look really good with tactical pants. Definitely buying these again.

Comfy but not long lasting - by , Jan 10, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
When I first got these boots I thought they were great. Working in a prison I am on my feet for up to 12 he's a day. Unfortunately after less than 3 months the sole detached from the boot. Closer inspection showed this was also happening on the other boot. Fortunately the boots are still under guarantee and are being replaced by niton999 in the UK.
