Surprised I generally do not like Bates boots. However, I liked the way these boots looked so I took a chance. The boots are light, comfortable, professional looking, and can be tied very tight (if that is your thing). My only issue is the left boot clicks when I walk. I can hear the click if there is hardly any background noise. No idea what is clicking as I can't see anything broken or out of place. The right one is as close to perfect as can be.

Great while they last Use boots during police patrol. They look and feel great and are easy to polish. The only issue is they don't last very long. I've owned several pairs and the heel stitching always, without fail, loosens and eventually frays leaving the boots useless. My department buys the boots for me so it's not a huge issue but I wouldn't recommend these boots to anyone who had to pay for them which is unfortunate because they really do look great.

Great boots I'm on my third pair of these boots. I've gotten great use out of them for daily wear as a patrol cop. They shine up very nicely and look great with the uniform. I had a pair recently that I had to get rid of as the soles disintegrated while running after a suspect. The boots were five years old however. I hated to do it as the boots still looked great. Replaceable or more durable sole would be great. I can't really complaint however as I said, they were five years old. I've got a new pair now. Same great look, comfort and fit.

They just don't last I've had two pair of these boots. They look good and feel good. But they just don't last. After spending $190 on a pair of boots you would think they would last longer than a year. The soal is slick and the stitching up the heel comes apart. I will not be purchasing another pair for $190. I don't make a lot of money working in Law Engorcement so when I spend that much money I need something that last. THEY JUST DONT LAST!!!!!!

Good upper, sole medium Have gone through 2 pairs in medical office setting but tons of weekend play, motorcycle rides etc. The pros. They are comfortable. Would give them 8 out of 10 for comfort. Looks 8 out of 10. They arent the street thug look with thick military sole which is great. They look professional. The upper leather wears well, resists scuffs, provides nice support but doesnt require prolonged break in. The ONLY con on this boot which can be used for work, date night, quick run on the triumph, etc is the sole doesnt last as it should. Make it replaceable or more durable. My shoe repair shop said sole is not replaceable. Dont want it to be super thick mud boot sole but maybe find a more durable material that isnt slick hard plastic. I hated throwing away the first pair after 2.5 years just beacuse the sole was bad as the upper was still fine.
