Not the quality im accustomed to from bates. - by , Sep 15, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
I've been wearing bates (a less expensive style) for years and have been extremely satisfied . I've promoted and recommended the brand for years due to comfort, affordability, and quality materials. However, this time i have to say, the boot falls significantly below expectations. The boots are unyielding and painful. I've worn them for approximately a couple of weeks, and they only get worse each time I put them on.

Great boot hard to zip - by , Jan 01, 2020
4/ 5 Stars
Hard to find size so great to have this available, did find the zipper difficult, was hard to zip. One boot did also seem tighter than the other. So the 4 star review.

Best boots ever - by , Dec 25, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Bought these as a recommendation. With my odd size foot, size 12.5 narrow, its very difficult to find boots to fit properly. The size 12 Bates fit like a glove. No heel slip and plenty of comfort. Definitely will come back again.

Extra wide are more like regular fit. - by , Dec 09, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
Extra wide are very tight and in just a few minutes of wear I started getting a raw spot on my leg. I am a diabetic so I have to be careful and I had high hope that the side zip would work for me but they do not. I am a 74 year old male that weighs 300 pounds

Have tried many different boots over the years and always come back to the GX-8. Always great quality and fit. Its all I wear in the winter. Waterproof and warm.

My 75,000 Motorcycle Boot - by , Jun 04, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
They are so good I just bought a replacement pair. I used these boots for daily year round motorcycle riding in NJ for 5 years (75,000 miles). I average about 80 miles (round trip) to and from work daily, five to six days per week. I ride in temps ranging from 10 degrees (double wool socks) to 80 degrees (single pair of athletic socks) comfortably. These boots are light, comfortable, very durable and have great grip on the ground.

Size runs big - by , Jun 04, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
Most boots I’m 11 and it fits perfectly. 11 in Bates are too big. Just tried them on but never wore them for anything and tried to exchange them. Never had a return email from Bates. Very disappointed and now I’m stuck with an expensive pair of boots I can’t wear.

Great comfort, fit and look. - by , May 06, 2019

The boots are everything I expected from Bates. After retiring from the Air Force I wanted a boot that would last like the ones I wore as an aircraft mechanic on the flight line. These did not disappoint.

great boots - by , Feb 15, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
im the type person that believes in quality over quantity. ide rather pay a little more for something and have it longer then to keep buying things year after year. These boots are the model of that expression.These boots are great, they are comfortable and light weight like sneakers,durable and waterproof like boots,and they are well worth the extra few dollars you spend on them. i bought a pair 4 years ago,i walk in the pouring rain,the wind driven snow,and all the harshest elements of weather,(its what i do)never have my feet felt cold, or has any water got even close to my feet.I am a pretty harsh critic when it comes to buying things,but these are hands down the best boots ive ever owned, i recommend them to everyone i know looking for boots,and when the time comes for me to get another pair of boots in a few more years,i will be looking for another pair of these.
