These are the best boots I've ever worn. I pound the concrete all day long in a correctional institution, and these boots keep my feet going long after they would have given up. I've tried walking shoes, running shoes, orthopedic shoes... gel inserts, foam inserts.. you name it, I've probably tried it. But when it's all said and done, these boots are without compare!

Nice Work Boot
I work in a job where I am on my feet most of the day. I got this boot and suffered only a minor break-period, which was basically getting by orthotic inserts to fit in the shoe comfortably. . The construction seems good so far (I have only had it for about a month)
Boots are a little big, but ok if I wear heavy boot socks. Not sure what I'll do in the summer when heavy socks are too hot. But they are comfortable--they're lighter and don't cause my knees to ache as much after wearing them all day. I wanted a lighter boot that I could use for both riding my motorcycle and also when I'm on my feet and doing a lot of walking at a biker event/fundraiser. I think these will work fine for that. I would recommend these boots and will buy more Bates boots in the future.
