    • Excellent
      Reviewer: Rick Vickers

      Very strong and well made. I'd suggest anyone buying the boots to take it easy breaking them in; give the leather time to stretch.

      Reviewer: Nick Gates

      2/10/2016

      I very happy with my Bates boots. First day wearing them feet hurt a little. But next day was all good. This is my second pair of this style of boot I have bought. They last about 4 years. I think I wear these boots more then any other shoe.

      My son picked these out for his JROTC activities. These were exactly the style he was looking for and couldn't be happier. Found that these boots run perhaps slightly big for those who are concerned about selecting the proper size.

      I try to stay away from products made in China. I would rather them be made here. The ad did not mention where made and when I received them tried them on and could not zipper them all the way up. Other than that being made in China they were sent back...

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      We're sorry to hear these boots weren't to your liking! We carry a large selection of American-made products. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Relations team. We'd be happy to offer recommendations for boots made right here in the USA.

      This is the first time I have not only ordered from tactical gear but also paratrooper boots. I have had 1 other pair of Bates in my career and just thought they were "OK". I have heard great things about these boots and with an compound with 80 acres inside the fence. That is allot of walking /running. It seems to have a longer break in period than I have had with others but hopefully with this kind of tread it will last me much longer than the usual 6 to 8 months.

      Reviewer: Rick

      1/9/2015

      I bought these boots about 2-3 months ago and have been wearing them ever since. I have not had any problems so far. They are comfortable and seem to be of sturdy design. The only thing I think is worth mentioning is not really a problem with the boot but more I guess with my foot. The length and width of the boot fits my foot perfectly but the one area that has given me trouble is the height ? of the toe area ? if that sounds right. Basically that area is cavernous and there is a lot of room for my foot to move up and down in no matter how tight I tighten them. I guess that maybe I have a skinny foot which is the problem not the boot. I found a way to fix it and that was to add an extra insole and that fixed it just fine and took up that extra space. Once I did that they are perfect. But just know that could be an issue. Other than that they are great and I would buy them again.

      These boots are great. They fit exactly true to size. Right out of the box I was able to walk a mile in them with no discomfort. They are beautiful and well made. The laces are a bit short, but that doesn't really matter.

      I've owned a pair for a while, and bought this pair as a birthday gift for a friend. They were a huge hit! Bates boots are the best for quality and style, and they're comfortable too. Customer service was a great help too with shipping so these would be here in time for the gifting.

      Reviewer: James

      8/27/2014

      I've had these boots for 4 years now. I work security at a casino so you could imagine they have some mileage on them. After 4 years the still look great and are super comfortable but the soles have worn to the point that they have holes in them. Other than that it's like these 4 year old boots are brand new. Buying another pair today :)

      Reviewer: Robert

      6/5/2014

      Well gentlemen I have read the reviews and I completely agree with most of you, In 2000 I first bought these boots. I have put them through hell and back in the last 14 years from working on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier, police department, and now protecting our nations borders hiking every day up and down mountains and walking in the desert. I have worn these boots every day for fourteen years and now its time to replace them with a new pair since the sole on my boots its practically no existent, so for what its worth these boots are definitely the best boots I have worn since the start of my career. I would recommend these boots to anyone looking for a pair of boots that are easy to break in and comfortable to wear for more than 12 hours a day. Great Job Bates with these boots.

      Reviewer: Derek

      3/13/2014

      Just got these in the mail yesterday and wore them all day today. Can't complain a bit. Pretty comfortable even when they're not broken in. They were a little stiff, but after a few hours wasn't a huge deal. my only complaint is that they got kinda hot, and if you don't have your pants tucked into the boots, and if you don't have socks long enough the leather can rub against your leg and got rather uncomfortable. I would definately recommend these to a friend

    • Great Quality Boots
      Reviewer: Tom

      12/1/2013

      I wore Bates Boots while I served in the Navy and they held up beyond expectation then and these are holding up just fine today. My last pair endured temperatures ranging from 50 to above 100 degrees F on the steel deck of a repair ship in various regions of the world (Asia, The Middle East, South Pacific, Southern California). These boots have thus far survived temperatures well below 50 degrees F in the city of Mason City, IA. A decent pair of cushioned boot socks are needed when wearing these boots during and beyond the breaking in period. I certainly recommend these boots to anyone looking for something that will endure the rigors of city pavement, dirt roads, deer trails, and when transitioning from one to the other. Not recommended for running marathons or dancing.

      I bought a pair of these boots for heavy duty use in the desert they have taken a real beating on long patrols and have held up well. They are comfortable and support your ankles well. After all the abuse they still shined up nicely for inspection. With my job a dependable pair of boots could make the difference between life and death. I love these boots and I will never trust my life to something else.

      I owned my first pair in high school and since then I have searched high and low to replace them. My high school pair lasted me well into my service in the Navy and have finally worn out. They are comfortable and can withstand the daily grind of both an active high school student or a call to general quarters.

    • Awesome for drill!
      Reviewer: Austin

      8/8/2010

      These boots are uniformed and perfect. They come prepolished, which is great for anyone one who wants to spend less time polishing, or spend the same time and get a perfect mirror finish. The soles are great for drills and inspections. The zipper is high quality and help for quick dressing. They are very comfortable, and will do a great job all day when it comes to looking good and being functionable. I was on a security detail for Civil Air Patrol on the cape and I was out all day. It rained really bad, but my boots didn't get wet at all. I recommend this to anyone who can get this. only bad thing about them is the fact that is the fact the buckles on the top to secure the zipper are a little bit hard to secure, but if you pull the material in the front back, it zippers and buckles easier.

      7/17/2010

      My last 11" bates zipper sides were incredibly comfortable, durable. They lasted me about 3 1/2 years of near daily use. This is why I just ordered my third pair of Bates boots
