Love this pair of bates...its my second ones in 4 years.....the first pair lasted through work and military training and were comfortable every time I put them on.....I'll be buying bates anytime I need a good pair of boots from now on
Long lasting comfort
I bought these boots around 4 years ago when the ICS features were placed on the underside of the sole, requiring removal of the entire insole to change them. Regardless, this pair of boots was the best investment I made in footwear. I wear them with the Military Uniform (BDU) and they look professional, take a shine well, and are extremely durable (Only issue in those 4 years so far is I've had to replace the laces). They can get warm during the summer in Florida, but I've never had a blister issue or other foot related problem. The boots are comfortable for extended wear and are largely water-resistant. My only complaint is that the ICS sole is starting to wear out after somewhat moderate usage
