Disappointing - by , Sep 20, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
I bought my first pair of Bates boots several years ago at a military surplus store. They were the most comfortable boots I'd ever worn. Since then, I pretty much wear them every day. I recently bought the new versions and I could not be more disappointed. They do not breathe at all. The fit isn't nearly as comfortable as the older style. For supposed hot weather footwear, my feet are constantly bathed in sweat. These boots do not breathe at all. The new waterproof features adds a wad of fabric that detracts from comfort. The boots continue to "squeak" even after several months. These new boots generally sit in my closet. Too late to send them back. Very disappointed in the new styling, features and construction. I still wear the old boots even though they are beat up.

I live in these boots. - by , Aug 31, 2020

These are light weight, cool and comfortable boots. Almost zero break in period for me. They are sturdy but the cushioning in the sole is noticeably compacted after one year. Since my employer pays for the boots I get a new pair every year, but these could definitely last longer with the addition of insoles.

My favorite - by , Jul 29, 2020

I've worn these boots for a few months now and I love them. I think they are my favorite boots of all-time. My only complaint originally was that there wasn't a "pull tab" on the back to help get the boot on but then I remembered I hated how my pant leg would always get caught on those things. I will be ordering another pair when necessary.

Does not hold up. - by , Jul 15, 2020

I have been wearing military boots for the past 26 years. These must be the lowest quality boots ever made. I was in the Army for 26 years. Most of my Army boots lasted at least one year. These boots designed for Marines are not durable. I have been wearing for 1week and already have gouges is the toes. I couldn’t believe it. Really disappointed.

Could be a little better - by , Jul 09, 2020

I’ve had the boota for a little while not and they’re great. Very comfortable and don’t make my feet hurt at the end of the day. However, they are ripping at the seams. It has only been a little while since receiving them, so I’d think twoce before ordering them.

I have been wearing this style of boot for a number of years in different colors. This shoe has never let me down no matter how tough I’ve been on it.
