Color is off - by , Jul 20, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
Very disappointed as this is a comfortable boot, but the color is nothing like the picture. There are no accents and the entire boot looks pale green. I was wanting a coyote/tan boot. Otherwise, this boot is pretty great, lightweight and comfortable

Best Boots Ever!!! I own 3 pairs. - by , Jul 17, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I'm a veteran and former LEO and armed security and I have worn many boot brands in my life. I had always hear my peers talk about Bates, but for some reason I always ignored them and went my own way. Stubborn I guess. I was looking for a good desert boot. One, because I like the way they look with coyote tactical pants. Two, because we were moving to AZ and I wanted to change my civilian wear style to a more desert look. I ran across these on Amazon and I liked the reviews and I liked the Velociter name. I threw caution to the wind and decided to bite the bullet and try out the infamous Bates boots I'd heard so much about. I have to say, these are hands down the MOST comfortable boots I have ever owned right out of the box!!! No break in period at all whatsoever. I liked them so much I bought a black pair for work. Hell, I liked them so much I bought a second pair of the deserts for backup, because I've seen styles come and go and I didn't want to wear them out and not find them anymore, which has happened in the past with 5.11's I've liked. I will buy a few more eventually to keep in reserve. I've worn the black pair 40+ hours a week at work and I wear the deserts off duty and they still look amazing after a year. They hold up well! Bates, please don't ever discontinue this style, because like others, I recommend them to my peers and I WILL WEAR THESE UNTIL I DIE!!!

I purchased a pair if these boots about 8 months ago. I wear them all day at work & I'll be honest I have some tennis shoes that do not deliver the comfort of these boots, I have recommended them to co workers & they now rave about them as well.Great Boot!

First pair or Bates Boots - by , Feb 21, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
This is my first pair of Bates boots and I must say that I absolutely love them. I initially saw them in Meijer, but they didn't have my size to try on. I ordered a size 12, comparing it to the fact that I run in a 12. That doesn't work with boots. Lesson learned. I returned them and ordered an 11.5. Surprisingly, I still had more room than I preferred and returned them and went with an 11 which fit perfectly to me. My feet are snug yet have room but are not scrunched. I should've realized the sizing to begin with because as a runner, you always size up a bit for room so you don't get black toenails. Anyway, I love the look and feel of these. They are super comfortable to walk around in. They keep my feet very warm even with wearing a low cut sock in them. I think they are very stylish also. I haven't had any hot spots or rubbing yet so that is good. They are incredibly padded inside. And I can really appreciate this as this is something I look for in running shoes also. I like the side zipper very much for it makes getting the boots on/off very easy. I would very much recommend this pair to someone who is on their feet all day. Finally, I must say that Bates customer service is the best service I have ever dealt with. I called the two times for my returns and once more because I ordered the wrong size on my initial order. They answered PROMPTLY, I mean like the first ring. All reps were courteous and took care of exactly what I needed. I will definitely order more Bates boots in the future!

Best boots I've ever owned - by , Nov 03, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
These are the hands down the best pair of boots I've ever owned. Super comfortable, lightweight, waterproof, and durable. I feel like I can run through mud and be able to jump kick someone in the face! I never have to worry about slipping on anything or losing my footing. Having confidence in your footing makes it easier to focus on the task at hand whether you're at work, hiking, or in he battlefield. I highly recommend everyone buy these boots.
