    • 1 out of 5 I believe sado-masochists designed these boots. I can't believe i am saying this but i wish I had the old boondockers instead of these. i can feel my feet sweat in these boots. The Navy should seriously consider issuing boots that offer comfort and support - which this boot provides neither.
      Steve, we are sorry to hear these boots aren't working out for you. If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team, we would be happy to help make some suggestions on other styles that meet your regulations. -

    • 2 out of 5 these boots are pretty easy to break in, but I cant seem to keep a pair longer than 6 months because the souls literally fall off. I like the fact that they are heavy because it works your thighs a little more. these do not breath at all and provide no support.
      We're sorry to hear your boots haven't worked out for you! Bates stands behind their products and offers a manufacturer's warranty with their items. You're welcome to contact our customer relations team so they can help you determine your eligibility. -

    • 1 out of 5 If i could give them a 0 i would. They are heavy, provide no support and will kill your feet. There's a reason half of the people in the NAVY have tennis shoe chits. Yet, they won't let us wear anything else. Hope the NAVY enjoys having to pay us all after we're medically discharged.

    • 1 out of 5 I've been in the navy for 8 years, and these are- hands down the worst boots I've ever been forced to buy because they are one of the two boots we are allowed to wear. Though durable, even after break in and trying multiple sizes I still have sores on my feet. They don't breath AT ALL, standing watch hurts the back because there is zero support and the inner soles are nonexistent.

    • Great Boots I recommend them

    • 5 out of 5 These boots hurt for the first 3 or 4 weeks I had to wear them. But after wearing them everyday (and developing numb spots on my feet) I now find them very comfortable. They are also very durable. When in comes time to replace them I will by the exact same ones.

    • Horrible Boots

    • 1 out of 5 I currently wear these boots in the Navy and let me just say that they are all together are the worst boots I've ever worn.

      Reviewer: | Saratoga Springs
    • 1 out of 5 These boots are extremely durable against wear and tear, but beyond that they are useless. Even with double socks after wearing these boots for over two years I still tear skin off on my heals due to the fact there is no padding, only unfinished leather on the inside. Most uncomfortable boots I have ever worn!

    • Terrible.

    • 1 out of 5 I've had these boots since January 2010 and I've had sore uncomfortable feet in since day one. I'm a US Navy Corpsman and I work in a hospital on my feet 13 hours per shift and my heels and toes hurt terribly each and every day.

    • Very uncomfortable

    • 1 out of 5 Ive been in military and law enforcement since 1988 and have worn probably 10 different kinds of boot. These are THE most uncomfortable boots I have ever worn. There are 2 thick pieces of unfinished leather on the inside of each side of each boot. They are absolute torture.

    • 2 out of 5 These boots are tough for sure, but they are tough on your feet too. I'm a Force Recon Hospital Corpsman, and I absolutely hate these boots. I guess I've gotten used to the Marine Corps boots but ouch.

    • 5 out of 5 Well having checked on the variety of boots, and being a soldier i can assure you that you have excellent boots which with no doubt are the best bearing in mind that they can withstand what a soldier undergoes in both training and ops duties. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    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.
