Sole just melted - DuraShocks® Waterproof Lace-to-toe Boot While riding my motorcycle through Las Vegas in 110 degree weather I put my foot down at a stoplight. When I lifted it back up the sole remain behind. I had the shoes resoled at a reputable shoe repair where they put on Vibram. Same thing, sole flopping in the wind. So they stitched through the heel to make the connection structural. Now wherever I walk I leave chunks of the old bates sole behind. The uppers are fine, with the exception of a little frying of the fabric at the ankle. They just used rubber that doesn't last.

Worn everyday and still in good shape I purchased these when I began Field Training. 8 months later, they are still going strong and are the only pair I use. Because I use them every time I work (three 12.5 hour shifts) they are worn in and it's time for another pair. When it is hot, these do not get much ventilation, most likely due to the fact they are waterproof. My feet do tire after standing for long periods of time, but I have had that problem with other boots as well. I'm flat footed. Overall, great boots if rotated with another pair. And they are waterproof. I went into a pot hole full of water and was dry while my partner was upset.

Good Boot - Comparable to Acadia I bought these after wearing the Danner Acadia boot for a few years. Honestly I wasn't overly impressed with the Acadia and I actually found this boot to hold up better over a 2 year span. The soles held up better as did the stitching for the nylon sides. I also found this boot to have a more rounded toe so I didn't feel like I was jamming my foot into a pair of pointed women's dress shoes as I did with the Acadia The shortcomings of this boot vs the Acadia were: -This is an overall stiffer boot. It didn't work in nearly as much as the Acadia. -In cold weather the soles get very hard and slippery. When waking down the halls in the station it sounds like I'm wearing a pair of tap dancing shoes All in all I am impressed with this boot and would say it's an all around better value than the Acadia.

Sore feet anyone? While these boots appear to be made well and look great, they killed my feet. It's amazing that on my off days my feet feel so much better. No wear on them yet they feel as if I fell off a tall building directly on my heels. I've never had issues with my feet until investing in these.

Good boots The only improvement I can think of would be sped laces near the top. These boots are extremely comfortable and provide excellent support
