Excellent boot
Excellent boot for all types of weather and inside conditions. The midsole is adjustable that helped to correct my tendency to walk in the inside of my feet. Very comfortable and most importantly the boot is flexible not only the sole though the entire body of the boot.

the best shoes
i suffer form pain in my foot and knee when wearing work shoes. in the morning i cannot walk because of the pain. i decide to search the internet for work shoes and i find bates with ICS technology i bought one at bass-pro in 2010 till today did not stop wearing bates with ICS technology, no more pain and i last longer at work with no fatigue. now i want the same boots with composite toe, i will buy it for sure

Bates' Reply:
We're thrilled to hear the Delta 8 with ICS technology helped you get through the day without pain and fatigue. We offer the GX-8 Side Zip Boot with composite toe but it does not feature ICS.

Great boots
This is the 2nd pair of Bates boots I have purchased. I only bought this pair because as much as I love my first pair, I can no longer deny that they are long past their usable life. After 5+ years of hard use at a correctional facilty, at the training academy, and countless CERT calls, my beloved Bates must be retired. There was no doubt that my next pair of boots would be Bates. I have never had boots or any other shoe for that matter, that can compete with my Bates. These boots are tough. They can take a beating and never fail. My old pair definitely look as if they have been to hell and back, and some ways they have, but I could not be more happy in them. My only regret is that I did not buy Bates when I first started my career in corrections 14 years ago. But I am sure glad that I found them after fumbling around with other, far less superior brands. I never hesitate to talk up my Bates and these new ones will be talked up as well. Great boot. Buy a pair and see for yourself.
