Cute strong boots but... - by , Dec 05, 2018
3/ 5 Stars
I ordered these boots for work after finding them online. They took some times to arrive (about a week.) They looked great when I took them out of the box, fantastic shine, genuine leather, new boot smell. However, I try to put them on and I realize I have to unlace them quite a bit because its a 10M also the biggest size they have in these boots. So I finally get them on and I walk around in them trying to break them in but there isn't any time for that wince my first time trying them on was at work where I needed them. I realize they have this awkward sound with each step like a heel underneath. I work in a jail at night. The inmates shouldn't hear me coming, walking around making my tours. Even when I stayed and work for my second shift in the day time you can hear the "whomp whomp whomp" with every step I make. I feel like I have to try to tip toe when I wear these. I wish these boots had a quieter platform and were slightly wider for easier on and off. The shoelaces are very thin also. I tend to draw my shoelaces tight just incase I have to take flight for any reason but I'm afraid to draw these too tight for fear of the laces popping. Overall through boot looks good but they are noisy and not wide enough in the toe area.

Great pair of boots - by , Jul 23, 2018

Love these boots. Took no time to break them in! I am on my feet all day and these are so comfortable and lightweight! I had to exchange them for a half size smaller and I have to say Bates customer service was amazing! Had some shipping issues but they were resolved with no problem. Probably the best customer service I have ever dealt with!

They are light weight, comfortable. Purchased for riding motorcycle and are pleased so far. Have not walked long distances in them though short walks, they are very comfortable.

Great boot. They're nice and lightweight. They look good on me too however by the end of the first week of wearing them they were creasing(more than normal) and peeling really bad. Its quite embarrassing to be honest. Other than that they was fine, but I more than likely wouldn't purchase them again.

Most comfortable boots I've ever worn. - by , Mar 14, 2017
5/ 5 Stars
I got these boots to wear with my uniform when I started working for the local sheriff's department, but I find myself wanting to wear them all the time, even when I'm not working. I'm in no hurry to take them off at the end of the day, too. The very first day I wore them, my feet were sore in the morning when I put them on, and my feet actually felt better at the end of the day. There was no break-in period required. I doubt I'll ever wear a different brand. I just wish I'd found them earlier in life!

I am a CO and this is my second pair of these boots, they are extremely light, and very comfortable. The price is also great! Definitely recommend them. I have bad feet, so it is extremely important that my shoes perform well.

Definitely lighter than my last boots! - by , Feb 09, 2017
4/ 5 Stars
I've worn Bates for almost a decade (in the military and current job). My last pair of Bates boots (6 inch steel toe boots) lasted over a year before the sole finally split, so I decided to stick with a brand I've come to trust. I absolutely love these boots for one very specific reason: even with water and oil on the decks at work, I don't slip. I've seen co-workers slip and fall at work, and it makes me feel secure knowing that my Bates boots don't slip, even when compared with other "oil and slip-resistance" shoes. My only "complaint" about this particular boot is that I wished it came in a wide instead of only medium width.
