Excellent Boot - by , May 21, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
These boots felt good right away and broke in quickly. They do run bigger than normal as I read in the reviews so I ordered mine a half size smaller and they fit perfectly. This is a well-made and comfortable boot. Very happy with my purchase.

I'm a UPS driver, and I am on my feet all day. It takes a good boot to make it through the elements when working outdoors. I've been wearing Bates Boots for many years, and they are the only Boots I will buy and wear now. Also, Bates has the best customer service in the business. Thank you Bates for the best boots I've ever worn, and excellent customer service!

Good boot, good price. - by , Mar 23, 2020

This my second pair of Bates summer boots. Both pair ran about a half size bigger than other brands of work boots, hiking boots, and tennis shoes I use. I wore the soles off my first pair after two spring/summer/falls of patrol. They are still super comfortable but don’t have any grip now. The new pair are breaking in quick. I ordered a pair of tactical uniform socks to go with these and I’m glad I did. The socks are a little thicker than what I’m used to (without being hot), so they offset the size running a little large.

My 5” tactical sport boots are the only true fitting boots and are very comfortable and are the only boots that I will wear.

Maybe fine for walking, not great for standing - by , Feb 17, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
I have been buying Bates products for over 10 years and this is the first boot I've purchased that has been sorely disappointing. I work in an industry that requires me to stand in place for hours at a time, and I bought these boots instead of the ones that I had been using because those are no longer being made. It has been about 3 weeks of full-time use and while they are comfortable for the first 4 hours of my shift, the last 4 hours are painful - both my feet and my low-back. If you stand still for a living, I would not recommend these boots.

Can't go wrong with Bates boots. Love this pair, fit like a glove, comfy, no break in needed. Work on my feet 8 hours a day in Security with a lot of walking and these boots are very comfortable. Would buy again.

I am an airline employee in Chicago who passes through security at least once per day, so I appreciate Bates' shoes metal free design. I have worn this style for over a decade and find it to be light, comfortable and to give good gripping on slippery surfaces. The high top gives good ankle support as well. One pair usually lasts at least 18 months with daily wear. I give it 5 stars!!!

Good Comfort - by , Oct 08, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
I have had this boot for two years at a moderate desk and walking job. Very comfy with the addition of an Irish Setter insole added. The D width is still too tall in the toe area, the reason I added an insole on top of the factory. These are heavy suckers though, not light. I walk less than a mile a day in these, so weight is not an issue and potentially, the sheer comfort off-sets the weight. Overall, I like them and will buy another, especially if they could knock of a pound per boot.
