  • 1 out of 5 I've been wearing Bates Ultralites for years and have never had a problem. I decided to try the Zero Mass because it seemed to have a better sole. I made a big mistake. I have never gotten a blister from any boot before these. I had a hole rubbed in each ankle by the time I walked a quarter mile. After about a week and a half they felt ok but shortly after one of the lace eyelets came out of the boot. I took them back to the store that I bought them but they didn't have any my size to swap out with. I was able to swap them out right at 2 months from original purchase and compared the new to the old. The soles were almost completely worn out. They would have lasted about one more month. I've had the new pair for over a week and my ankles have new holes in them. By the way, these are not slip resistant. Be careful on wet surfaces, very slippery. Do not buy these boots.

  • 5 out of 5 Not only are the boots light weight, they also keep your feet remarkably cool. My feet are actually cooler in these boots than in my regular dress shoes. The materials are not cheap, and the sizing was perfect at size 11. These boots almost seemed narrow at the heel at first but after a day walking in them they fit perfectly. Almost like a modern jungle boot, the thick canvas sides move air in and out. I'm wearing them now as I write this, and I'm till surprised by them. Now my wife wants a pair!

  • 3 out of 5 The boots are very light weight and flexible. very good for walking and standing. However, they feel very cheap and low quality materials. Time will tell how well they hold up. Other problem I found is bates boots all run very big in size. I wear size 11-11.5 in any other shoe, but I got the zero mass in 10.5 and they are still big. A lot of room and slipping in the heal. After wearing them for about 2 weeks and breaking them in, they are almost to big and loose to wear. This is my 3rd pair of bates boots and these by far the the cheapest low quality pair yet. Just another product from china.

Nylon has been incorporated into key areas of the design to increase breathability and enhance airflow. The Aegis antimicrobial-treated insoles have anti-odor and moisture-wicking properties to keep feet dry. Best suited for training applications, this footwear option ensures long-lasting comfort for the wearer.

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.
