6.2 - by , May 12, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
I've been using Bates boots since I started needing duty boots. I started with the ultra lites, then the gx-8 now the 6.2's. they're light, comfortable, dry quickly and keep a decent shine. Biggest complaint is that after a year my left boot is practically a bald tire. Probably from turning to walk back to my patrol car but I anticipated a little better tread life than this

Very comfortable and durable. - by , Feb 28, 2019

I wear 9.5 and depending on the make sometimes 10 in sneakers. Bates size chart helps to find your size. I ordered a 9.0 and it fits great with a half inch extra length like a 10.5 in sneakers. 8.5 would probably fit me like a 10 in sneakers but I don’t mind the extra half inch for my toes when I forget to cut my nails and I tread down hill. I walk all around indoors; including stairs and outdoors. These shoes broke in quickly and are even more comfortable.

Very comfortable boots - by , Feb 27, 2019

These boots are super comfortable and look good, however after 2 months of wearing them the outsole is wearing out too much. I think these boots should have a more meaty outsole. Would still buy again though.

New design a big step up. - by , Feb 15, 2019

This is my third pair of Code 6 boots. The 6.2 version resolved the wear issues I had with the back of the ankle and feels much sturdier in the other seams as well. Will be back for a fourth when the time comes.

My every day footwear - by , Nov 15, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
I'm big into Bates, I have a pair of gx8 for work I have a pair of Zero Mass(which are still going strong) and I just bought a pair of Code 6.2s to replace my zero mass for everyday footwear. These boots look great and feel great, as with all my bates I order a EW and they always fit perfect. The 6.2 is my every day boot and a few weeks in I'm in love with them. My only gripe is the laces I feel should be a bit longer, but other than that I'm a happy customer, and paired with the right boot sock these are perfect for everyday use!

Started out great - by , Nov 01, 2018
1/ 5 Stars
These boots were great at first. The fit was great and they felt light and breathable but after just one month of regular use on the street the soles have all but fell apart. The heel of both boots have almost entirely seperated from the boot and the tread on the ball of the foot had started to peel away as well. I really wish these boots were more durable because they really are comfortable but obviously they aren’t made to last. I’ve heard similar complaints from many co workers as well.

Great pair of boots right out of box - by , Jun 13, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
I like that Bates has EW as an option for boots. Not many brands have that a part of their arsenal. First things first. Great customer service. They respond and try to actually help you figure out what might work for your needs. These by far are the comfiest boots I've ever worn. Like a few reviewers mentioned. No break in period. Great pair of boots right out of box. Almost feels like sneakers when walking in them. I have pretty wide feet and the EW option I bought were minimally tight but that's just how wide my feet are. Can't blame Bates for that. Regardless, they blow out other boot company brands outta the water for sure, in comfortability for my feet. Only thing I'd complain about is breathability. These don't really breathe well. My feet get sweaty. Then again they are boots. The boots are aesthetically pleasing. They have a slight shine to them which make them look professional. These are pretty lightweight and doesn't feel like I drag the bottom compared to my previous boots while running. Feels secure when laced up. Even though I had to unlace the top eyelet to tie my laces. Not because shortness of shoelaces but because I had to give myself slack around my midsole for extra comfort. The added size zip on the inner boot makes this a breeze to slide my feet in for easy access. As well as when removing my feet from the boots after a long day. Untie laces, unzip, and they're off! I dig it. While driving in them, the height of the boot slightly restricts the movement when giving some gas (might just be me). All in all, I would most definitely recommend these boots for Patrol work. From standing, walking and running. Sitting too... 😁 All field tested. 3 weeks in. All good. Just wish for more breathability.

My first choice - by , Apr 27, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
I’ve owned quite a few pairs of boots, some much more comfortable than others. This pair is right at the very top in terms of comfort and performance. Bates has not let me down. As a bonus for any Punisher fans out there like myself, this is the same boot Frank Castle wears in the Netflix tv show. He also used the Bates Zero Mass which has unfortunately been discontinued. But in my honest opinion, this pair is the better of the two.

These boots are very comfortable and the cushioned insert feels like walking on a memory foam bed for you feet.
