Best dress/work shoe EVER!!! - by , Jan 07, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
Had a co worker suggest these to me after my last pair of work shoes disintegrated. This is easily the best shoe purchase I've ever made! In other reviews they say that they run a little large, and I fit between a 10 and 11 depending on the shoe. With that in mind, I got the 10 and it fits perfectly! My toe sits about half an inch away from the front of the shoe giving me just enough room without slippage. Fantastic arch support, and a thick durable sole for long hours on your feet. If you work in a profession where you have to dress nicely, but running around day and night, this is the shoe for you!

I would this product to anyone - by , Dec 17, 2019

I am very happy with this product, the size is exact, it comes in extra wide (not just width of shoe also the range of shoe). The shoe is made of good quality and well made. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who has diabetes and the side effects associated with it. Thank you for providing a shoe I can count on every time I put them on

Not Very High Shine - by , Oct 08, 2019

Need to return these because my daughter needs them for her dress blues and they are not "high shine" enough. Love the fit though, wish they worked.

Great shoe. Worth the money - by , Oct 07, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
These ran slightly larger but not enough to really matter. Quick break in time and you can tell they are a quality shoe. Been wearing them for 3 weeks now on 10 hour shifts on my feet for 9 hours, averaging 4-6 miles of walking. No signs whatsoever of fatigue anywhere on them. Good professional look. Not so great for the amount of standing/walking I do as far as comfort but tolerable. Insoles lifted my feet too much and the shoes did not fit correctly. I’ll try a different insole if it bothers me down the road. You can either buy cheep poor quality multiple times or buy these one time, put a shine on them every now and then and not worry about footwear for work.

They shine like mirrors - by , Sep 23, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
The leather is very high quality and took a spit shine in one morning by hand, and I'm kind of rusty at shining shoes. They fit perfectly, and look great. The flex point is right where it should be. They're a little heavy if that bothers you, but I don't mind. They're a boot made to look like a dress shoe in my opinion and that's just what I wanted.

I have purchased this same shoe 3 or 4 times for work shoes. I love the look, plain, smooth, no extra stitching. This time, they seem narrower than in the past.

These are great shoes comfortable and they look great! The price for leather shoes outstanding! I wear them in the office with jeans and dockers I look professional and when I have to go down to the shop I feel confident my feet are protected Bates shoes. You can't beat them. A good Man's shoe period end! Buy these. You won't regret it.

Great shoes overall - by , Jun 20, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
I recently started a security guard job that required dress shoes as part of the uniform. I found these to not only look nice, but after about a week they have become one of my most comfortable shoes to wear. As far as breaking them in, they remind me of my trusty old Bates lites combat boot i wore in the Corps.

I am a pastor. I stand for long hours, especially on Sundays and special events. When I was in Federal Law I comfortably wore your shoes. As a pastor, it was an easy choice; good fit and comfort- Bates or buy elsewhere. Your shoes are easy to keep shined, look great and a pleasure to wear. Thank you. Pastor John Fauerbach
