Great boots I only wish they lasted. - by , Jun 09, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
Love the boots until the stitching on the toe fell apart. For the price they should last more than a few months.

Good potential - by , May 12, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
These boots fit amazing and we’re very comfortable out of the box. However, they did not prove to be as durable as I thought they would be. I Have owned other Bates boots that preformed great, but these did not seem to have the same quality and durability. I owned these boots for 6 months and the bottoms were worn out and the area behind the heel was torn up regardless of how tight I toes them. These boots have great potential but a disappointing start.

Best boots ever! - by , Apr 27, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
After being bladerunner 2019 I had to have officer k's boots but am not a fan of side zips, but with a little more research found what could be considered a civilian model in the bladerunner universe. I walk constantly at my job on wet and dry floors pulling heavy carts loading trucks and unloading trucks, these boots are the best I've ever owned 3 months in and no complaints! At 41 it's hard to find foot wear that doesn't hurt after 10 or so hours of work!

Comfortable but did not last long. - by , Feb 23, 2019

Though these shoes were comfortable they were only waterproof for about a month and now the toe cover is coming off as well. Main reason purchased was to keep feet dry so certainly not worth the money.

Great boot, but sweaty. - by , Feb 22, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
These boots are awesome. Look great, comfortable, good traction, good price point. These are however, the only boot I've ever owned (Thorogood, Timberland, other Bates among I've owned) that my feet are sweaty in by the end of an 8 hour day. Worse off, it's winter in Michigan, I'm sure it will only be worse in summer :/ Also, a side zip would be great. 6" side zip is so hard to shop for!

Extremely Poor Quality - by , Feb 19, 2019

I purchased a pair at the end of September. While they were comfortable by the beginning of January the seams were splitting out in the toe area. Incredibly disappointed!

Awesome but *already* falling apart. - by , Feb 12, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
Out of the box I was extremely impressed at a number of things. .They were perfectly sized. Wow. After months of use, still fit wonderfully. And are mostly comfortable. .They really were water-proofed. Honestly I wasn't expecting that. .Despite not specifically advertising it, they offer an awesome level of protection. Hot oil, marble table top, and a number of other sharp and/or dangerous objects have befallen these badass boots. ::But alas, there are bad things too. :Non slip seems to be more of a suggestion, not built in. :I'm not sure if it;s every pair but the soles are already worn nearly flat. I've had these shoes for less than 6 months. This alone, at this price-point, is REALLY pushing their luck. :Again, LESS than 4 months. Part of the stitching has already come out, making them no longer water-proof. During this winter storm... Ouch. And yes, they are badass and survived a number of things but nothing was so massively deforming as to actually warrant this. It's possible that the hot oil melted the fiberglass? But no, wrong shoe. I managed to drop all of these things on my right foot. And the left has come apart already. : All in all they were VERY impressive but I SPECIFICALLY came to Bates Boots in an attempt to get shoes that would AT LEAST last me 1 year. Considering the price tag I would like to assume that 1 year is not too long to hope for but I would hope for 2. Due to overall impressiveness, but short lifespan, 4 stars. I might come back. But 4 months? That's it? ::A (not so) side note, this specific boot seems to have a lack of airflow. I have required using creams and blah blah to keep the skin on my feet as these are the only pair of boots sturdy enough for the work i do. Ouch. This alone docked another star. If I get another pair, it wont be this model.

Comfortable, not waterproof, nor durable - by , Dec 29, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
I'm a construction superintendent in Washington State. Bought these boots back in August this year. First thing to note is that they run small. Thankfully I went to a nearby Navy Exchange to try on a pair of Bates boots to see how they're sized. All my shoes are 10 medium, but their 10 was too small, so I got a 10.5, which fit just right. 2nd - low durability: just one month in, one of the upper lace loop gussets started to fray! I do a lot of walking/running/jumping/scrambling on the job, but not so much that these things should be falling apart after a month. Also, in four months, the tread has worn down significantly. 3rd - the most disappointing of all - now we're in the rain season and I regularly walk through puddles - my feet get wet! Water soaks through these boots. It's not coming in over the top. It soaks THROUGH. My feet get wet on bottom, top, etc. Not only that, but they somehow retain water. When walking around on a rainy day, I can hear the squishing of water retained in the boot somewhere. Seems like it's possibly coming in through the webbed sides of the boot. The only thing this boot has going for it is that it's very comfortable. Also, the sole allows me to feel the terrain beneath me (though I think may be a little too soft for safety). Otherwise, I couldn't justify buying these again for my needs.

Purchased these in January, now November and the boots are completely broken down, which is a shame because while they lasted they were some of the most comfortable boots i've had, and being a 13EE its not easy finding ones that fit like these do
