Doesn't last I wore through these boots in 9 months which is depressing given the cost. The pair of Bates I had before those only lasted 6. Seams always break and the whole thing just falls apart. But that's twice as long as a cheap alternative lasted so I keep coming back.

A love hate relationship... I have wanted a pair of BATES boots for some time now, I finally decided on this book because I adore the look and love the reviews. I have an usually wide shaped foot and need a 10.5EEE, when I got the boots in the mail they were just "10.5 Extra Wide." Having ordered them on Amazon I complained and got no where. The initial fit was very tight but I decided to break them in, my pinkie toes were numb a few days but then the leather streched and they become VERY comfortable. Which is amazing really, all credit to Bates superior quality. HOWEVER, three weeks in now and the seam where the leather meets the sole is coming apart on both sides all the way around, on both boots. I am heartbroken. I had already decided that Bates Boots are the only shoe im ever going to wear again. And they still might be, I realize a lot of this may be due to needing one size wider, but still. I can't afford to immediately order another pair after just 3 weeks, however I leave for deployment in a few weeks. If a get a wider pair someday and the seams don't come apart then I'll probably wear Bates for the rest of my life because I love the boots.

Just ok Love my old Bates which is what made me look at them when I needed new ones but was disappointed to see that there was literally only 2 women’s boots with a safety toe option which made me have to look into the men’s boots. Went off the sizing conversion I have always used when having to buy men’s shoes and the boots were still a bit too big but not big enough for me to be able to go down to the next size. The toe box is pretty wide which actually causes some side to side movement and my pinkie toe rubbing against the side of the boot at times causing a blister. The insoles in the boot itself are pretty comfortable and my feet usually don’t hurt from just standing 10 hours or more (besides the discomfort mentioned above). The side zip feature is great although the lacing right at the bend of the ankle makes it difficult to slip the boot on and off comfortably unless I completely untie and loosen the boot up

This is the second pair I have bought. Comfortable well made. Wear them everyday for work. My order got mixed up and they originally sent me someone else's order. After talking to customer service three times I finally got a representative who understood the mistake and got it corrected quickly.
