Horrible craftsmanship Horrible craftsmanship for a dress shoe targeted to military/law enforcement. I wore my dura-shocks a total of 3-5 times for no more than an hour each time (indoors/inspection shoes) and the heel on one of the shoes fell off. After looking at them further, the other heel is disbonding from the shoe and the soles on both are also cracking and starting to fall apart as well. I've always stored my dress shoes in shoe bags and have never had an issue until I switched to the dura-shock sole. Serves me right for trying out a new Bates product. Talking to various people in the unit, it's actually a fairly common occurrence. I'd call this a pretty negative trend. It seems like Bates has cornered the market on military dress shoes which seems to have allowed them to loosen their reigns on quality control. I expect a company that gets so much business from the men and women in our military to have a little more pride in the products that they put their name on.

Awful product, safety hazard, don't buy The entire sole disintegrated! I rarely wear these shoes and today I had an extremely important event to attend and the sole ripped off and fell apart between the car and the building. It was horribly embarrassing! I am taking this issue to clothing sales, because they should be aware of this faulty product.

Fell apart during a presentation Bates shoes have been good to me for the past 20 years in the military, until now. I wore my trusty Bates shoes while in my ASU's during a presentation. The soles literally cam apart while I was presenting, I did not have an extra pair to change into. This was a very embarrassing situation.

I have worn Bates shoes for over 30 years. Started in the military when I was a drill instructor. I am now an RN and wear the High Gloss DuraShocks on a daily basis. At one time I had perma shine jump boots when on an honor guard, whish I could get them again. These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
