Best boot available
I've been in the Army for 3years and a police officer for 2 years. The Bates GX8 is the best boot,shoe i've ever used. It fits perfect like it molds to your foot. Keeps me warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Very lightweight and very good traction. I've also tried Rocky's and 5:11 but Bates has easily surpassed all the others in value and product.
Product Size Rating: Sized as Expected
How do you most use this product?: At work and sometimes for normal evry day wear
I have only had these boots for a few days. The construction seems to be excellent, but after doing some walking I have found that the boots are really not very comfortable. The leather folds as I walk and pushes down into my toes, which hurts. I hope these will "break in" after a while, because I guess it is too late to try to return them because they are now used.
I absolutely love these boots, they feel like they were molded for my feet. Walking comfort is awesome, feels like you are walking on a cloud and your feet do not get fatigued. I am truly amazed at the comfort level for sure. I know I will be purchasing more Bates products in the future and I recommend them to anyone that wants my opinion of them. My daughter also wears Bates boots and also brags of the comfort so I tried them and she made a believer out of me for sure. I almost hate to take them off.
