Performance
Comfortable, light, but I had issues - by , Jun 17, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
I have always loved the brand and for the most part have been happy with their products. I liked these boots right away. They are light, stylish, and provide wonderful support walking long distances. On the negative side of things, although they feel nice when they are on, they've always felt a bit snug when sliding my foot in. Important to note that I did order the widefit version. I bought 3 pairs and gave one away. On the first pair I kept, the toe cap came undone and I tossed them away. I figured perhaps it got caught on something and thus ripped. On my last pair I just noticed that the toe cap on the left shoe is also ripping and the right shoe is showing a similar separation. I do wear these boots when I am working around my place and other outdoor acitivities but I can't honestly say that I punish them. I have read other reviews suggesting that they are great, and needless to say, I do think they are wonderful boots, however, in my experience, there were quality issues with the ones I ordered.

Very comfortable and cool. - by , Nov 23, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
My feet are usually hot. These boots are the coolest I have ever experienced. They are also very comfortable with no break-in required. I think I'm on my 4th or 5th pair. I use them for work mostly, but also ride my Harley in them. When I'm on my bike, there is a lot of air flow. Almost feels like you are wearing flip-flops. I have a pair of the waterproof boots for rainy days. The regular Velocitor's WILL NOT keep water out. Even walking in wet grass, my toe's get wet. Keep that in mind.

Great Boots - by , Sep 25, 2019

I bought my 1st pair over a year ago. I got the water proof pair and loved them so a few months later I got the regular Velocitors for summer time. Still loved them. They are durable and super comfortable. Light weight and they just look cool. Easy to clean and well made. I don't know why someone said they are bad? I know for sure that there are people that just have monster feet and it doesn't matter what shoe they put on. poor shoe just gets murder on those monster feet. I have always kept shoes for a long time most shoes last me a good while and these boots are no different. Im a 5'11" 190lbs guy and wear them for Patrol and Off duty gigs year round in North Texas and they handle the heat/rain of Texas Highways at noon like champs, they never let me down. I am definitely buying 2 more pairs as soon as they old ones give the last kick.

Made Poorly - by , Apr 07, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
First, very comfortable boot. However, The toe cap came apart in the first week and the plastic inserts in around the holes for the laces came out. This boot is not worth the money and is made very poorly. I got about a week of use before they started coming apart. I am very disappointed; I remember when Bates made good boots. This is not it.

Comfortable but fell apart quickly - by , Apr 04, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
The boot was comfortable from day one needing no break in time. First 2 weeks were great but after that a hole appeared in the mesh material on the inside of the boot. Thought maybe I caught it on something. Less than a week later the same hole started on the other boot in the same place. Over the next week that materiel started to come off in numerous places on the boot. Very disappointed since the boots were so comfortable to wear and all my past Bates boots have lasted over a year. I spend half my shifts at a desk and am not putting any kind of extreme wear on them.Could only wear them for 4 weeks and had to retire them as they were to unprofessional to wear anymore. I recommend Bates to all our new recruits but I cannot recommend this set.

I love these boots. They are comfortable, at least for me. They are also very light. My first finally wore out and I just bought two more.
