Great Riding Boots
I have been wearing the same pair of combat boots since the mid-1980s, mostly for motorcycle riding. While they're extremely well worn-in, they're also a pain to get on and off. I've been considering side zipper boots for some time. I looked at a lot of different offerings, and only the Bates look like they're made well enough to last. Others are just ... well, cheap. After the first couple of days wearing them on my Goldwing, I have to say, "Wow!" Wish I'd bought these years ago. Light-weight, comfortable, and very well made. Can't wait to see how many miles I can get on these.

Bought for acadcemy
I was happy with purchase the first month, but now has been 3 months and the boots are falling apart! The back side is starting to open up and flap.. The sides are unglueing. I am a bit upset since can't return to academy there return is for unworn items and less the 45 days. Wish the boots were made to last longer then 3 to 4 months...... Thanks bates..

Great for the money
I bought these as a first pair of military style combat boots. They held up for well over a year. The only issue I had was on the back of the left boot, the leather began to split in 2 places. They wore well through intense hiking, and security type work. They clean very easily. I ended up buying a second pair after around a year and a half for uniform purposes and kept my old pair for general use. For the price, they are a great set of boots. They fit as expected and are very comfortable.
