  • 5 out of 5 Not long after purchasing these boots, the Construction Site I work at as a security guard had a heavy rain and the mud was horrible. These boots, even when trudging through the mud, had much better traction than some of the other boots I have worn in the past.

  • 5 out of 5 I'm an EMT and wheelchair van driver. These boots are just want I needed to the upcoming ski season. They are easy to lace up, the zipper makes getting in and out effortless. After a week I'd say they're almost broken in, I just got get used to steel toe again. I hope they hold up well.

  • 5 out of 5 These are the most comfortable boots I have found. I wear size 14EEE and Bates boots fit me very well. My boots only last a year no matter how much I pay for them, so these are a fantastic deal.

  • 5 out of 5 These can not be beat, for the price they are your best value as far as a tough rugged boot goes, and they will not fall apart, (if your as hard on boots as I am) & you need a pair to count on to 'go the distance'.

  • 5 out of 5 My brother served in the Navy and swore by these boots. So, when I started corrections boots, those were the ones I chose. The boots held up and would not die. I wore them for about four years. During that time I was working in both detention and the oil field. Sadly, due to too much oil base on them, I had to throw them away, but they were still in fighting shape when we parted ways.

  • 5 out of 5 Great boot...wears for a long time. Comfortable! easy to put on with or without the zipper. Soles of boot stand up to oil, hydraulic fluid, and constant walking on aircraft parking ramps. Definately reccommend it if you want a boot that last over a year.

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.
