    • They fit
      Reviewer: Joan

      2/26/2015
      That's about all I can say at this time, haven't worn them enough to really rate them properly. Ordered my usual size 8 and they fit nicely. I like the side zip.

    • good boots but disappointed with defects
      Reviewer: Renee

      11/22/2014
      I typically love bates boots. These are good, however the ones I received have some small defects, a problem I've never encountered with Bates products. The strings are too short. I barely was able to tie them. The closure tab for the zipper on the right shoe is not sewn on the seam where it should be and therefore does not velcro as it should. I have never had a problem with bates boots before, but this order is a terrible disappointment.

    • greatest boots ever
      Reviewer: Carol

      9/20/2014
      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.

      These boots are very comfortable to wear. I am on my feet all day on cement floors and these are light weight and the souls are like walking on air.

    • I love these boots!
      Reviewer: EMT

      11/17/2013
      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

    • Exactly what I wanted!
      Reviewer: WyoGeo

      3/11/2013
      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.

    • Sized as expected
      Reviewer: SI Harvey

      11/21/2011
      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.

      10/20/2011
      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.
