Great product, but flaws I was happy that I was able to upgrade to the waterproof boots, but once wet, the black started to turn green. Id use a trico fiber cloth to dry, the white cloth would turn black, i uses the Bates cleaning kits sold on this site. After a few days the leather started cracking, so basically I bought the non waterproof boots I had before. I've been a customer for years, first time I buy something better, expecting good I get worse.

Big Fan 0f BATES. This is my second pair of GX8s. A friend who does hazmat cleanup told me how great they are for him, originally,(and he stands in ankle deep oil and petro often). They are light, and very very durable (as my last pair went through hell and back over four years in the Mountains of East Tennessee, and I still wear them for dirt bike riding on my track.), and they are 100% waterproof to the top of the goretex boot. Awesome Boots, Big Fan of the Bates! -KS.

These boots great! It took two or three days to break in around the ankles. I spend most of my day on my feet at work. These boots are comfortable and durable.

Comfortable out of the box I've been wearing this boot for several years. Comfortable out of the box, durable, and shine up nicely. I have had no issues with the boot.

4th pair of GX-8 boots This is the 4th pair of these boots that I have purchased. When I got hooked on the first pair of GX-8 boots, I had tried every boot available. I was looking for comfort first and durability 2nd. The first 2 pair were always incredibly comfortable. It felt good to put my boots on. The boots didn't need break in, they were more comfortable than any other shoe I wore. I got to the 3rd pair and they were only so/so. It seemed like the sole of the boot had changed. My feet were not as happy. On this 4th pair, I debated trying another brand. The first 2 pair were so good that I went back to them. Unfortunately, these are also just mediocre. They are stiff, the footbed is so so. After wearing them for a week, they are broke in but still are not an over the top boot, as far as comfort. I am in the lawn care industry. Lots of walking. Lots of walking in wet grass. I hike on the weekends. These boots have ALWAYS been extremely durable. I generally get close to two years out of a pair. My last pair is not falling apart at a bit over a year, but they started hurting my feet, which made me want those first Bates boots that I originally got hooked on. These boots have all retained their waterproof qualities for the life of the boots. I do treat my boots with mink oil weekly. These boots have excellent traction. Still a good quality boot. Long lasting, good for whatever activity you throw at it. Waterproof. Not too hot in the summer. Comfort is average. It seems like the insoles wear out pretty fast, now. Perhaps they changed the insole?
