Still Awesome after 5 years I have been using the same pair of boots for over 5 years now and they are still as good as the day I bought them. When I first got them, I was in the sheriff explores in my county and used them for work details and training for about 3 years. After years of use I haven't noticed any discomfort at all and even when running in them they don't hurt your feet. The leather on the outside is still in great condition with some frays here and there on the mesh side and back. Without a close inspection, the sole is really the only noticeable part from it being worn down from use over the years. Ever since that day, I use them daily because they are very comfy and better overall than most of the regular shoes I have. They have outlasted far longer than I initially thought they would and with proper care, they might even last me many more years.

Just Shy Of Five Stars Great all around boot. I have been wearing these summer and winter for one year and actually love them. Great fit, comfortable, shine up nice, zipper solid, grippy tread, and light. My only complaint; Stitching on the back center of the boot, where the leather lower meets the nylon upper, failed after about 10 months. I don't expect boots to last forever but stitching should not fail within a year on a $99.00 pair of tactical boots. Fix the stitching and these boots get 5 stars.

The best boots I've worn in a long time. Let me start with this: I have always been wary of zipper boots. Zippers jam, leak, and get clogged with dirt. I also suffer from bunions and corns, and have been battling that pain for years. I needed sturdy black shoes to work in the meat dept of a local grocery store. I bought these boots on sale at a local dept store, and I was..wary, despite that I know the Bates brand, and that is the only reason I bought them. I couldn't be happier that I did. Since I have been wearing these boots, I have had no, -I mean zero- foot pain. My corn(s) have not reared their ugly head, my bunion has not uttered a word. Usually by this time of year I am gimping around from wearing thicker, warmer socks. My feet never hurt in these boots. My feet are never wet in these boots.(with basic boot maintenance, of course: leather treatment, polish) I have not once lost my footing on a wet with bleach and 'meat-juice' soaked floor. These boots are, hands down, the best boots I have put on my feet in years, and I would recommend them to anyone who needs them for any work environment, from construction, to kitchens. I would even recommend them for kennel work, even though I have not tested them in that particular environment yet. Worth every penny.

Very Comfortable Boot I am a Security Officer at a Medical Facility and work 11 hour shifts. I walk on cement and other hard surfaces, mostly tile. I love the Bates classic looks on these boots. They are light weight. My feet do not hurt or ache after a full shift, these are very comfortable hardly no break in required. The leather is very soft and pliable which accounts for the comfort. This is my first pair of Bates Boots but it won't be my last!
