Lightweight and comfortable. - by , Aug 26, 2019

These boots are very comfortable and lightweight. I am an officer in Texas and wear these everyday in the heat, they allow my feat to breath and keep them dry. I also have plantar fasciitis and with these boots my feet do not ache after long shifts.

LOVE my RAIDE boots! I typically wear an insole in my boots, but not in these! They literally fit like a Nike trainer. Comfy, durable, and high quality! Will DEFINITELY recommend to all my coworkers!

Get THESE - by , Mar 09, 2019

I’ve been working EMS for 5 years and I’ve only had 2 boots that I can say were good all around. Both in style and comfort. These are hands down the best boots I’ve ever bought. EMS involves a lot of lifting and these boots have a thick ankle area which is perfect for stabilization when carrying. Very comfortable and they have a sleek look to them. And if you shine them, forget about it!!

Comfortable boots - by , Feb 19, 2019

The boots are comfortable, much more so than others. As a federal security officer, I spend alot of time walking. My only complaint is the material on the toe stemmed to wear out quickly. I've had these boots for about 9 months.

Side zip is a must - by , Nov 29, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
These are fantastic boots. Anytime I purchase high boots I try to get a side zip. I love the support I get from high boots but I don't have the time to lace them up when I go to work. I work in a grocery store and I am on my feet all day. These are very comfortable, providing great support all day. I also must add that the outsole is especially appealing to me because it grips great on all surfaces of flooring. I have purchased some boots with athletic type soles that turn out to be slippery on smooth concrete, and tile(linoleum), but not these.

Great boot right out of the box! - by , Oct 28, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
These replaced my 8" Tactical Sport Boot. The sport boot had a tongue issue where it would slip to the side causing discomfort. Being the great company Bates is, they replaced the sport boot with the Raide. Very light weight and comfortable. I wear these while riding my motorcycle and they provide plenty of ankle support and traction. I can walk all day at the rallies. NOTE: These are not water proof.

Great Boots - by , Aug 07, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
These are a great set of boots. They aren't overly heavy or hard on the feet. The leather on the toe is pretty soft which makes them easily damaged, at least in a correctional setting. No true complaints though. I anticipate buying these boots again once I wear these out based on how comfortable they are.
