No more foot pain!
I just LOVE these boots! They provide the right amount of support to my foot and ankle. The side zip makes it easy and fast to take off and put on the boots while maintaining the right tension on the shoelace. I work at a prison and am on my feet all day walking on concrete and metal grates, and climbing stairs. The boots that I had previously left me with major leg and foot pain; by the end of the week I could hardly walk. After I found the right adjustment in the heal I can now make it through the week with ease. The high quality makes the cost a great value (especially compared to the cost of a foot doctor). I will be buying Bates boots for both work and leisure from now on!
hard work comfort...
These boots are the most comfortable boots I have had...
I work hard and play hard and these boots keep instep all the way.
If you are debating on these, I say stop right there and pick up a pair
You will not be disappointed.
Five stars- price , comfort and durability...
First, In response to Shindoru ( on 07-11-11) he made a comment towards those that serve our country and municipalities, You work in a tire shop. Those that serve our country and our municipalities do so because we love it. You must be one of those that think they are over paid or get lucrative pensions, which both are false so quit listening to the news.
Second: I was considering these boots and even Shindoru's review has made me decide to get a pair, I do wear the Delta Oxford Low in the summers but wanted something for the snow, and if these boots are as comfortable as the show, I'm in. Thank you for a great product and I look forward to getting the boots.
