Thank you for your recommendation, Rhonda!

Love these boots! - by , Mar 17, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
This is my 2nd pair of GX-4s with Gore Tex. My previous set lasted almost 6 years and still have life left in them and still hold a shine. I wear them on patrol daily and also on mountain bikes in the winter months. I have had the new set for 2 weeks and after 2 days they were broken in. I use the stock in sole and don’t see a need for an after market in sole like other boots. Sizing is true to size. I wear a 9 1/2 wide in dress shoes and hiking boots and these fit the same. Overall these are the best boots for the money, don’t look anywhere else.

Once i broke them in they feel like i am wearing sneakers. Have had them a little over a year and have stood up very well. Didnt wear alot in the summer though. Gets about 120 on the ramp and feet would be soaked with sweat. But other than ventilation held up well.

I walk 15 miles per day. These boots have a good fit, protect your feet, and withstand heavy duty use.

My favorite boots I've ever had - by , Feb 17, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
They took some time to break in, but once they did they were great. I wore them at work and some times daily. Warm in the winter and relatively cool and comfortable in the summer. After years of hard use they eventually wore out, but I got more then my money's worth from them and plan on getting a new pair.

Theres better out there - by , Jan 21, 2019

I think Bates designs these boots without any actual testing. They fit fine and the soles are grippy, however, where the tongue flap meets the two sides form an excess fold of material that bites into your ankle. I thought breaking them in would help but that extea material really bites into your ankle bone protrusion, and on an 8+ hour trip thats mental. Your feet should be top priority, these just dont cut it. I had to cut where the tongue meets the sides down and trim it and its much better but that in itself is a weak point. These were a replacement Bates sent me for a pair of Chukkas that gave in also. I think this is the end of the road for me and Bates.

Comfortable & Lightweight - by , Dec 15, 2018

Wearing my first pair for 1 year 8 months and they've held up very well that is why I purchased a second pair. I've been thru plenty of standing water, puddles and mud along with snow and rain and feet were totally dry. I have worn them for up to 16 hours straight and legs never got tired, very comfortable.
