Great Shoe If you want a uniform shoe that has boot qualities this is the one; however if you want a boot buy a boot. I have used these in the spring, summer and fall for over 20 years as a police officer. They are comfortable and take and hold a great shine. I have had a couple pairs (replaced yearly in my dept) that had sole issues, but Bates replaced them with one phone call. I can get 2-3 years out of a pair and with yearly replacement wind up giving friends in smaller agencies what I don't need. If you want a shoe, these are the best, but you can't compare them to boots. My winter boots are jump boots and they are awesome. I have to purchase them out of pocket, but I can easily get 3 years out of a pair.

Police Officer These are excellent boots. They look great, they'll really set you apart, and they take an awesome shine. They feel like you're walking on air. The only thing that keeps me from giving them a perfect score is the soles. They make the shoes squeak very loudly on smooth surfaces, like the floor of our police station and some office buildings. Also, I've experienced the Bates Lites soles crumble in the past. It hasn't happened to these shoes yet, and I've had them for a year and a half or so, but I'm constantly checking for any signs of decay and carry a spare pair of other-brand shoes in my patrol car just in case. The Goodyear Welt should make it possible to re-sole these shoes with something better, but it would be great if they came out of the box that way, perhaps with Vibram soles like the Leather Uniform Oxford. They probably wouldn't be "Lites" anymore, but they'd be as close to perfect as you could get.

Thank you for the excellent review and feedback on the soles. Typically if rubber is experiencing breakdown its due to age and being stored for years without wear. Either way or team is here to help.

Bates lite buckle chukka I bought these boots to wear with my class A or dress uniform. They were worn a handful of times as I don't wear a class A uniform that often, and the rest of the time they sit in my closet. I removed them from the closet Saturday to polish them for a function and I discovered the heel on one of the boots is separating and both boots have cracks that run across the soles in multiple places. The large cracks are around the Bates emblem where the sole flexes and run completely through the entire sole to the bottom of the boots. I'm not bashing Bates as they make quality boots. But, this is the cheapest pair of boots I've ever owned, and that includes Walmart boots! I've never seen such a cheap pair of boots that weren't cheap. The boots fit good, the are very light, easy to shine and shine very well. I don't know if these boots are made in china or what. But I can say they are not made of quality material and I will never buy another pair of these or possibly any Bates boots.

Fits like a glove This is my first pair of half-boots or chukkas. Being that I'm a 8-1/2 narrow or B, I have a hard to fit foot and almost always need to go with a tie shoe. But the minute I put these on, they formed to my feet perfectly. And they look really impressive too. Thanks!!
