Should of checked the site first for prices then local uniform shop
I went to my local uniform shop and bought a pair of these boots. they had them listed for 129 bucks plus tax so came out to 132 and some change. I come here to the site and see the site only has them for 104 bucks with shipping still under the price I paid for in the store. I know Stores jack prices up but I learned my lesson. Now for the boot side of it the boots are great wore them for a day to break them in no problems and still comfortable. Sizing was great and the local store did not have wide width and went with what they had no problems at all will post again after a year of use.

GREAT Boots!
I have been in law enforcement for thirty years and I have worn just about every brand of military/police oxfords or tactical boots in my career. I have experienced some really bad and some not so bad footwear, but these Bates DuraShocks are fantastic. I just bought my third pair today. I have never had a more comfortable pair of boots. The last pair lasted just shy of three years and they were still comfortable. Believe me when I tell you that I am tough on boots and shoes because other brands just haven't held up. Before I found these DuraShocks I always had pain in my heels six hours into my twelve hour shift. Not anymore. Excellent product! When it comes to police oxfords, Bates Featherlites are the only way to go. They are by far the best looking and most comfortable.

Size fits perfect. Little stiff at first, but breaks in rather quickly. Quite comfortable. Would buy again.
