Almost perfect..... - by , Jul 16, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
Almost perfect. Wide, no too wide, but nice and wide if that's your foot shape. Large not too large but on the large side of properly sized; they're not conservatively sized let's say. Comfortable for sure, stiff rigid sole; these'll be great for riding. The Vibram lug sole is always welcomed, (wish they went with the full lug depth sole instead of the slim/flat lug style) Only gripe; Please Bates; make the padding in the ankle sides go all the way to the top of the collar and/or add a padded collar and please, PLEASE go up the one extra eyelet like a low jungle boot. Or a 6" these don't seem quite 6" but a slightly higher fully padded version would be a homerun I think. They're comfortable and I like the styling thought and sentiment behind them, just wish the collar was padded and slightly taller. I foresee having to wear them laced down t the 2nd to top eyelets leaving the last one undone because of the nylon top strap rubbing into the back of the ankle/calf. I ride a cruiser and a café with slightly more aggressive riding position the back of the ankle could become annoying. Otherwise keep up the great work.

Great Boot, takes a beating - by , Jul 06, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I just got these a few weeks ago, within the first few days, they went down with me in a motorcycle wreck, I got all kinds of damage, but not to my feet, well made and well constructed, there are some skid marks on the boots, but they held up and are still wearable. My only wish was that the collar was padded, other than that, these boots I can highly recommend.

The boots are very well made, fit true to size and stand out in a crowd of motorcycle boots which all seem to look the same. Love the tribute to our military with these, and being entirely American made is a huge plus! I liked them so much a purchased another pair in another color! With as well as these are made, I’m guessing I will be wearing them for a very long time!

I wear a 9.5-10 depending on boot. These are a nice boot that i can ride to work and wear all day in the office and not look like a total motorcycle boot. The issue i have they tight at my small toe causing discomfort. I feel they will better after they are broken in. After only wearing them three times, Fortunately i had some slip ons at office

Styling on point! Fit not so much - by , Jun 07, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
I absolutely love this boot just received it two days ago. Even just trying them on in the house I was getting pretty bad pain over the widest part of my foot. I’m exchanging for a half size up and hopefully I can make it work because I do think these are the best looking boots I’ve been able to find. I really hope bates makes a freedom boot 2.0 and makes a few tweaks too it. Like providing a wide size option. I want to support these boots being made because they are made in the 🇺🇸 and I think that makes a difference.

Excellent boot, top quality - by , May 25, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
These have become my go to boot, so much so that I ordered a second pair. The style is great and is exactly what I was looking for. The boots are very comfortable when you are off the bike too. I try not to slog around my motorcycle boots but these are so comfortable you can wear them and walk no problem. The quality is top notch with very nice solid stitching and materials. The only recommendations I would make is to order a half size larger than you normally wear and they should fit perfect. This gives you a little more room in the toe box area. Also, if the laces were a little longer that would make them perfect. All in all and excellent boot and well worth the money...and as an added bonus they are made in USA!

I'm happy with my boots. - by , May 22, 2019

I have worn these Bates Freedom boots for about 7 full days and I really like them. They are sort of heavy but that's okay because in spite of that they are very comfortable. No break-in period required. After reading other reviews, I ordered a 1/2 size larger than I normally wear and they fit perfect. The laces could be longer but they are long enough to be tied to the top. I bought them to wear while riding my motorcycle and for that they are great. The toe is not so large as to make getting it under the gear shift a problem as on my previous boots. The Vibram soles have a secure feel when planted on the road at stop lights. I am now wearing them to work as regular shoes because they are so comfortable.

I had initially purchased a size 12M which turned out to be too narrow for me. My foot size is 12M. I then purchased a size 13M and they fit just right. I use Bates motorcycle socks which gives me the right amount of cushioning and snugness. These are high quality boots and they look great. It only took me a couple of days to break them in as the laces were tight in the beginning. I suspect these boots are going to give me good service for a long time. Thank you Bates for producing a quality product that looks just as good off the bike as on. Have purchased to date two more pairs, one in black and one in brown. I’m set for many miles down the road. Ride on!
