    • 5 out of 5 Actually, this is my second pair that I purchased. I loved my first pair so much I worried whether I'd ever be able to get the same thing again. You know how everyone changes styles etc. So I bought the second pair so that if the first pair ever wears out then I know that I still have a pair. I wore them all last year in all kinds of weather and they still look brand new. They are very warm and extremely comfortable. I wore them right out of the box. Also, they don't add 5 pounds to your feet like other boots. You don't even know you are wearing boots. I wear them with everything including shorts. Everyone who sees them loves them. Buy a pair, you won't be sorry.

    • 3 out of 5 These are GREAT boots. I work 16hr days through the summer and the winter. The only problem I have with these boots are the soles of my boots are coming off after only one year of working in them. They breath well and have great support when on your feet extended periods of time. They just need to last longer. Paula

    • 5 out of 5 Right out of the box they are comfy and light weight. Usually I need a gel footbed, but not with these. I immediately took the dog for a fast hike on concrete the whole way through town for about 1.25 miles. They are exactly what I wanted. As I was walking my calves bulked up a little and the upper tightened up so I loosened them. WHAT A GREAT DESIGN! I wear 9.5, so little I am not, and these fit the bill well.

    • LOVE THEM!

    • 5 out of 5 I bought these boots recently as a smart lightweight boot for my work as a medic on a drilling rig in the North sea. I also do voluntary work for ST John ambulance and being ex Royal Navy I do occassionaly go for a rum in them. The grip is very good and the support excellent. They are also very light and have kept my feet dry in hot environments. The side zip makes them very easy to take off (especially at my age). I will be reccomending them to my mates. I would prefer a hard toe cap for safety and may get a pair of Bates with a hard toe cap as a comparison in the near future. I am very pleased so far.

    • Great Boots

    • 5 out of 5 I really like these boots! It's my first pair of 8" boots and I was afraid that they would really bother my ankles and legs, but they are very comfortable and they were easy to break in. I would definitely buy another pair.

    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.
