I purchased these boots for my son who just joined the Civil Air Patrol, Air Force Auxiliary. He found them extremely comfortable, considering he has extra wide feet, he often has trouble getting them to fit right. Not with these boots. He drilled in them the same week they arrived and no problems what so ever. The side zip is great as it makes putting them on and taking them off a snap. Great boot. Would buy again

Excellent Boots
I received my Dura Shock Boots about a month ago and they fit perfectly and were very comfortable right out of the box. I have been wearing Bates Boots for several years now and like their products very much.

These 8" DuraShock boots are the most comfortable boots that I have ever purchased to wear to work. The support and comfort are great because I am on my feet for most of the day. When I need another pair of boots, these will be the ones that I will buy again. It's nice to be able to find my size without having to travel to numerous stores and waste gas and time.
