Great boots - by , Feb 26, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I've worn these boots for about a week now and so far they've been very comfortable. I think they will work out better then my last pair of GX-8s I bought 2 years ago. Those were not nearly as comfortable as these and I don't think the materials they used were as nice either. So far I'd highly recommend these.

My husband gets these boots roughly once a year (he wears them for 2 years or so) but tries to keep a large rotation so they don't wear as quickly. He wears them everyday. They're fantastic!

I'm on my second pair. - by , Feb 09, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I am absolutely horribly brutal on shoes. I walk in mud, water, manure and work on cars and wood working. I scrap my toes on the ground catch heavy items with the toe of the shoe. Deflect, wear for long hours. Did I mention I'm hard on shoes. I have been pleased with every pair of bates boots I have ever worn. Not just these particular boots but other composite toe boots by Bates. I worked TSA for 5 years and wore Bates boots the entire time. I cannot say enough how pleased I'm with all of the Bates boots I have owned. No, I'm not paid to say these things, I just like the boots.

Beautiful, well made boot - by , Jan 04, 2020

I purchased a pair of Men's GX-8 Waterproof Composite Toe Side Zip work boots, size 12 EW, my normal size in boots. It fit a bit too small. Decided to exchange them for size 13 EW. Received them today. Excellent fit and quality. Side zipper is an excellent feature I've never had in boots before. Love it. The exchange process was easy and trouble free. I would not hesitate buying from Bates again.

One of the best Bates boots I’ve owned! I already have a total of 12 different style Bates boots and I love this one the best to a point I bought two of them! Great style and comfort and light.

I cannot get over the quality of this boot. It's incredibly comfortable, composite toe, light, and they fit very snug. I will be buying this boot again.

Got there boots fit slightly smaller then expected, the outside of the boot by the 3rd eyelet where the leather meets the mesh split so there no longer waterproof. Its inly been about a week of use so ill have to buy new boots already and spent the money for nothing.
