    • 5 out of 5 This will be the 3rd pair that i have bought...Im a firefighter paramedic and on my feet for at least 12hrs of a 24hr shift. The boots have lasted me 2 years and to be honest I could still use the ones I have. Durashock's are the BEST boot and I've had many. Im not a fan of other Bates products but this is a great one. You feel like you're walking on clouds all day....AMAZING!!!!

    • 4 out of 5 I bought these boots to wear for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) events/activities. Although I've only worn them once so far, the size (10.5) seems spot on but width (M) seems a little larger than it should be even with thicker socks. I'm hoping that perhaps the boots have to mold a little bit more around my feet. The apparent looser width has not caused any hot spots or blisters. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and your customer service.

    • 5 out of 5 This is my second pair after wearing my first pair over 3 years everyday. Great for riding however the zipper finally started to pull apart , order a new pair because the first were so dependable and comfortable . The only deference I noted was the inside tongue was not all leather like the old ones. Oh by the way took the old ones to one of the best shoe repair shops in Pgh, they put in a more heavy duty zipper in both boots and now I have two great pair of boots. Still wear the old ones more but seems like I'll never need another pair at my age. Thanks Bates and tacticalgear for making and carrying such a great boot.

    • 5 out of 5 These boots are the most comfortable ones I've worn on duty. This was my 2nd pair. The first pair were stolen off my front porch when my wife left them outside this past winter. I was very sad because I knew what I was losing. If somebody wants my used boots bad enough to steal them, they must be amazing right! They arrived in perfect condition from and even faster than anticipated!

    • 2 out of 5 Look nice, but run wide even in the "medium", I wear a size 12 but the boots are just wide causing blisters I wouldn't buy again but they look great.

    • 5 out of 5 I am buying another pair this week. The pair I have now has lasted three years. That's with me wearing them every work day of law enforcement. Great boot at a great price. The extra wide widths are really comfortable compared to other brands I have had in the past.

    • 5 out of 5 I put these boots on my Christmas list two years ago, and was rewarded with a pair. Once i started using them I found them too be extremely comfortable. I'll be getting new ones when needed.

    • 5 out of 5 I wear these boots everyday and I even have a damaged foot that was really tore up while I was in the service, it usually takes me a couple months of going thu shoe stores trying to find something that will fit good enough to get me thru my 10 hr work days. I saw this boot and liked the styling and figured well, I can always send them back if they don't fit right. Well, your not gettin these things back, they fit great and my tore up foot loves em so, there you have it, these are some darn good boots. :-)

    About Bates

    Bates collage It all started with men's dress shoes. In 1885 Bates Shoe Company was just a tiny dress footwear manufacturer. More than seven decades later, the company narrowed its focus to create a uniform dress shoe specifically for the U.S. Navy. From there, its uniform footwear line exploded onto the market. With 1.5 million pairs of military boots sold each year in 60 countries, it's no surprise that Bates remains a major player in the world of military footwear. With a reputation like Bates', it's easy to see why so many uniformed men and women wear these military boots with pride.
