These boots great! It took two or three days to break in around the ankles. I spend most of my day on my feet at work. These boots are comfortable and durable.

Comfortable out of the box I've been wearing this boot for several years. Comfortable out of the box, durable, and shine up nicely. I have had no issues with the boot.

4th pair of GX-8 boots This is the 4th pair of these boots that I have purchased. When I got hooked on the first pair of GX-8 boots, I had tried every boot available. I was looking for comfort first and durability 2nd. The first 2 pair were always incredibly comfortable. It felt good to put my boots on. The boots didn't need break in, they were more comfortable than any other shoe I wore. I got to the 3rd pair and they were only so/so. It seemed like the sole of the boot had changed. My feet were not as happy. On this 4th pair, I debated trying another brand. The first 2 pair were so good that I went back to them. Unfortunately, these are also just mediocre. They are stiff, the footbed is so so. After wearing them for a week, they are broke in but still are not an over the top boot, as far as comfort. I am in the lawn care industry. Lots of walking. Lots of walking in wet grass. I hike on the weekends. These boots have ALWAYS been extremely durable. I generally get close to two years out of a pair. My last pair is not falling apart at a bit over a year, but they started hurting my feet, which made me want those first Bates boots that I originally got hooked on. These boots have all retained their waterproof qualities for the life of the boots. I do treat my boots with mink oil weekly. These boots have excellent traction. Still a good quality boot. Long lasting, good for whatever activity you throw at it. Waterproof. Not too hot in the summer. Comfort is average. It seems like the insoles wear out pretty fast, now. Perhaps they changed the insole?

Excellent fit I started wearing Bates boots about ten years ago, after trying a lot of different boots Bates were the most comfortable to wear all day on my feet.I like the side zip up to give you more room putting them on and off.Very durable and warm in winter with insulated ones.Can't say enough about the GX-8s.

Very Comfortable but... Boot is extremely comfortable and lightweight. Im in law enforcement and work/track outdoors in all different kinds of terrain. Boot IS waterproof as advertised. I’ve worn the boots for over a month and starting to show signs of some wear and tear. Hoping they’ll last me at least year but we’ll see.
