    • OK Boot
      Reviewer: JS

      1/18/2016
      My first pair even though china made were unbeatable, had them for about 3 years of normal to rugged mountain use and you could stand in water all day long and feet stayed dry. Even the following morning no moisture soaked through the boot. My second pair was made in Vietnam, this pair not so good, absolutley not waterproof, can't even walk through wet grass and feet get wet. The leather is hard and from kneeling down with the boots toe on the floor has caused the leather above the toe to dip in and it has stayed like that. I would't buy another pair if made in Vietnam.

    • Light and comfortable
      Reviewer: Alex

      10/8/2015
      I have been wearing these boots for about 2 weeks so I cannot say how long they will last but they live up to the reviews I've read about being the most comfortable boots you can wear. They broke in within a couple hours and are very light so they don't wear down your legs and back. My feet have stayed dry through hot days and through rain. If they have a good life span I will keep buying these boots when they wear out.

    • Defective Boots
      Reviewer: Ron

      2/6/2015
      The Boots are comfortable and keeps feet dry, but why after 6 or 7 months the soles are coming off starting at the toe area. If they could be repaired or replaced by the company, I think they should. I have purchased Bates boots before and haven't had the soles come off yet until I got this style of there boot?

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      Hi Ron, we're so sorry to hear you'd having some issues with your new boots! If you'd like to reach out to our Customer Relations team, we would be happy to look into this for you and see if this issue might be covered under a manufacturer's warranty.

    • Not great
      Reviewer: Eric

      10/13/2014
      I wanted to give these Bates a shot because I like the safety toe / side zip combination. I read the reviews first and saw some low marks for quality and durability. I can now verify they are not as durable as the Converse side zip / safety toe boots that I have wore for the last year. The zipper is small making it weak and not as easy to zip or unzip as its larger counterpart. The material used connecting between the zippered halves is a soft but thin leather that seems like it may become weak after a few months of sand, dirt, water, and sweat from working. They are definitely Tacti-cool and will do the job intended but probably not for the long haul of more than a year. Considering I paid 150 for them, which is what I paid for the converse, I was hoping for a more solid boot.

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      We appreciate this valuable feedback, and we're sorry to hear the boots aren't working out as well as your other boots. Bates does stand behind their products by offering a manufacturer's warranty. If your boots fail to perform, you are welcome to reach out to our customer relations team to help determine your warranty eligibility.

    • Finally great boots!
      Reviewer: Bill

      12/7/2013
      After years of sore, hot, tired, wet sweaty feet. a great, high quality boot. My feet feel like they are in a comfortable tennis shoe. At the end of the shift they are dry and ready to go. no more wet feet. and they polish up and look great.

      Reviewer: David Baugh

      1/6/2013
      I bought my first pair four years ago. This is the best boot I have ever purchased. Out of the box, the boot is very comfortable and has no break in period. My only complaint is that the boots will only last a year at the most. Granted, I do wear them 12 to 14 hours a day. If they only lasted 6 months, I would still buy this boot for the comfort and price. I will be buying another pair soon.

    • excellent boot.....but didnt last
      Reviewer: andrew

      7/1/2012
      best boot i ever put on my feet! lite weight, cool during the summer, and felt like a pair of nikes........unfortunately after 2.5 months in the field they r completely falling apart.(i work in excavation installing underground utilities) stitches on the side are coming apart, where the sole wraps up the side of the boot is separating, and the rubber grips on the tread are almost warn down to nothing. i spent $20 to have them repaired....maybe they would be good for a weekend warrior but not the workin man
