Performance
Light weight, cool, basically barefoot feel. - by , May 20, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I ordered these for riding my motorcycle in summer. Heat kills me. I can literally feel the wind moving through these boots. When walking around, they feel like they pull cool air in. I love the boots. I will definitely order another pair for back up. Comfort is exceptional , like tennis shoes, but support around ankles is snug. The zipper is a great addition, the main reason I ordered as I had grown tired of lacing. I understand that they used to make a 6”. Would definitely be interested in that!

I have been wearing this style since 2008 and love them. I can wear then right out of the box for twenty hours with no problems. I have tried other brands but nothing compares.

Where these boots every day all day ... the comfort is unmatched to my other style boots I paid over $250 for each pair and these boots weigh basicly nothing... its like wearing sneakers alday the zipper sides are great for wanting to get the boots off and on in a hurry... definitely will be being another pair when these are worn out ...

I’m starting to break in my 3rd pair of these. The first 2 pairs lasted almost 5 years. They are more comfortable than my favorite Reeboks. Straight out of the box to the day they are wore out. I love them. My sons wore them when they were deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan and they told me they were comfortable. I bought my first pair and they were right.

Wow! - by , Jun 13, 2019

I ordered these on Monday and they came on Thursday AM! Perfect fit, and they feel great! The color is even better (more uniform) than on the computer. I love my Delta 6” but wanted something other than black for the summer. This is it! I’ve worn the Deltas for several months but the GX8s are just as comfortable, which means they are great. I’m wearing Bates instead of my sneakers - I never thought I would say that about 6” and 8” boots. A lot of room for my toes even on a downhill slope. The composite safety toe offers a lot of protection, more than my other boots except for my old steel toe boots which don’t compare to Bates. OH - and they look Great! My wife loves them.

I live and work in remote desert regions of Western Australia and I think this is the most comfortable and rugged boot I have ever bought. None of the popular boots in Australia come close to the comfort and quality of these boots.

Best Boots I've Ever Owned - by , Apr 01, 2019

I was issued Bates boots in the military, so it didn't come as a surprise that these boots would meet my expectations, however they definitely exceeded them. I use these boots to fly, as well as work airfield ground operations, they work perfectly for both, and there was no break in period, they were comfy out of the box. Best boots I've ever owned.
