    • 5 out of 5 I bought Timberland for winter for $180 my feet freezes then someone recommends me to try something from This is my first shoe to buy online. I paid about $100. I like the shoe and will never buy Timberland. The price is way too cheap with better quality and support. I shovel with this shoe and it does not get wet but my feet freezes. where as Timberland my feet gets wet and freezes. As long as you do not use this shoe to shovel you can use it for winter. I am happy.

    • 3 out of 5 Service and delivery was great. I ordered extra wide, these boots were not as wide as US made New Balance EEE. They were too narrow, would not fit, made for smaller people. An earlier pair of EW boots by bates were also narrow but I am able to wear them for a day at a time.

    • 5 out of 5 This is my second pair of Bates GX 4s. My first pair lasted 5 years and even though they still look good, the soles were wearing thin. These boots lasted a very long time compared to other brands have I have purchased in the past. They are extremely comfortsble.

    • 5 out of 5 This is the second time in 5 years I have chosen the same Bates work boot. I wear these boots for 10 to 14 hours a shift doing a Paramedic and EMS Supervisor job in Pennsylvania. I am very impressed at how this boot can remain comfortable and offer great support and flexibility throughout the long shift. Other brands were either too stiff or caused blisters on my feet. Awesome shoe for emergency services usage.

    • 5 out of 5 These boots were true to size. I had to break in these boots. It took about 4 or 5 10 hour days but now they fit like a glove and feel great! They are waterproof and hold a really nice polish. Comfortable Light and quiet.

    • 5 out of 5 Love these boots as an all year boot. I deal with a lot of slippery conditions as a tow operator and these boots stand up to the task, as well as, keeping me upright. Only complaint would be longevity of the soles. Im tearing mine apart and Ive owned them less than a year and no one in my area resoles glued soles.

    • 5 out of 5 Im on my feet for most of the day at the station and I needed a boot that was comfortable, waterproof, and affordable. The Bates GX-4 is definitely it. They run a little on the narrow side so I would recommend the extra wide.

    • 5 out of 5 Just received these boots and they are extremely comfortable straight out of the box. They have a sleek look and I like the gore tex lining. I did alot of research on these prior to ordering and the main complaint was they ran a little narrow, so I got the extra wide and they fit just right. The only thing I would recommend is to get some longer laces cause these are short.

    • 5 out of 5 I've been searching for a boot like this forever! Light, dry, and made well, although longevity is still to be determined. In fact I have just ordered the 8" insulated side zip version as it's getting colder here. I have a high instep and wide feet, so they are a little hard to put on and are a little narrow for an xw, (this I know has a lot to do with the Gortex membrane.

    • 5 out of 5 They are not bulky work looking boots, I wear these to church and everywhere in the winter. The leather is good quality andshines up great. I live in snow country and with Gators I've been in snow up to my knees this winter for hours and they are warm and perfectly dry. I usually wear a 10.5 D; I ordered the medium and it was very narrow. The wide in this boot was way better and very comfortable for me.

    • 4 out of 5 I work on my feet all day long as a UPS driver and I must say in my 20 years with the company I finally found my boot of choice in the Bates Gore-Tex boot. I deal with all the different elements outside all year round and this boot provides me with all the features one could want in a great work boot. The bates provides great and sturdy support, protection, comfort and great looks. The only concern I have is that it would be great if the boot came in half sizes all the way to it's biggest size.

    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.
