Best boots I've ever owned - by , Mar 28, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I bought a pair of these in May of 2017. I've worn them practically every day since and am only now looking to replace them. They still work extremely well and I can't imagine switching to anything else. Three straight years of solid use (and still going strong) is no small feat. I'm definitely a believer!

Excellent boot all around! - by , Feb 04, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
Working in law enforcement, I always take a toll on boots. Bates are the boots I always come back to, and this is the first time I've had this particular style. Whether I'm running, sitting in the car, or kicking a door they're just as comfortable as ever. Will definitely get a new set when these have done their duty!

Maximum comfort and maneuverability - by , Nov 25, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I originally got these for myself as a gift due to the Blade Runner 2049 hype. It was the first time I could really afford to treat myself in such a way. They were all for show until my original work boots gave out, then I swapped to these, had a fun time breaking them in, and then they became like a second skin. In the two years I've had them, they've dealt with the rain, snow (NOT recommended, as they are definitely not meant for snow), mud, dirt, gravel roads, you name it. I have worn them shifts as short as 4 hours all the way up to 12 hours, and after all of the running around, heavy lifting, and stair climbing, my feet always feel fresh by the end of the day. The stock insole isn't too good, so I swapped it out. The midsole and outsole absorb so much shock and provide exemplary comfort that I may as well be wearing expensive sneakers. They are also decently water resistant, but I do not recommend these in heavy rain. After the beatings they've taken, the worst damage they've suffered is a few snapped lace loops, some scuffs and nicks at the toes, and the outsole being worn down a ways. Regardless, they still move me forward with ease.

I've purchased Bates boots for a decade and every time I try another brand I end right back with these boots. They work great for me. Warm, durable, waterproof and long lasting.

Thanks for your great feedback Boomer!

great sport boots. super lightweight and comfortable. feel like supportive hi-top sneaker shoes.break-in and mold to feet in 2 days at most. might want something heavier if you are kicking in doors and walking thru coals, yet for me they are perfect. also great if you have ankle problems and need extra support without needing a pair of outdoor boots. got 2 pair and will switch them out day-by-day. good to go, jack!

I am a K9 Handler. I place ridiculous demands on boots as a result of performing my day to day patrol duties. These boots are just what I need.

This boot fits snug to my foot. Comfortable to walk in all day. Good traction on the floor. Thanks to my Dad for getting me these. Different style than the one we’v Gotten in the past, and have loved them all.

Great but didn’t last - by , Sep 01, 2019

I purchased these boots for work only a few months ago. They are comfortable and waterproof as advertised. I am highly upset at the fact that both boots have torn on the side in just a matter of months. Definitely not the Bates Boots I’m used to. Now I’m having to spend more money to replace them. After years of buying your products I will looking for a new brand that is made to last. Especially after wasting over $119 for my last purchase.

Comfortable, but not %100 waterproof. - by , Apr 17, 2019

I’m a cop, went to a call during storm. Had to walk in water that consumed boot up my ankle for about 15 minutes. This boot left my feet soaked on the inside. Other than that really comfortable. Bates needs to work out the resistance to water in this style.

Bates Footwear's reply

Water can enter the boot if it gets above the protective membrane. If you believe this is not the case please give the team a call at 866.699.7374. We'd be happy to take a look. Thank you.
