  • 5 out of 5 I ordered a size XXL for width, and though the box said it was XXL they were mediums. :( Customer service emailed me a prepaid return slip, I stopped by STAPLES,(it's a UPS center) handed them the box and label and I was done! New ones shipped out and their perfect! Like any new boot the heel is stiff. If I had one con it would be that the laces really should be longer to accommodate the width.4 stars cause lets admit a mistake is a mistake but what a great save from the customer service dept.

  • Great boot, Good price.

  • 5 out of 5 I'm using these primarily as a motorcycle boot. Since I ride year round in most weather conditions, I was looking for water proof insulated boots. These fit true to size and are comfortable right out of the box. Relatively light weight, easy to customize the snugness/support with the laces. The only question remaining is durability.

  • 5 out of 5 Even with a side zipper, their still a little challenging to take on and off. I'm not sure why - I have a pair of 5.11's with out a side zip and they also have eyelets all the way up and they are much easier to put on. So far I'm pleased with the quality and price.

  • 1 out of 5 These boots are comfortable however the back end of the boot will rip after regular usage with them. I have owned mine for near 4-5 months and wear them 3-4 days out of the week (12 hour shifts) and they have already ripped. I personally will no longer buy bates boots... - Patrol

  • 5 out of 5 On my second pair of these boots. First pair are still serviceable, but the soles are wearing thin. They've lasted almost 5yrs. I'm hoping these replacements last an additional 5.

  • 4 out of 5 I bought these boots and was impressed with the comfort right out of the box and they fit well. However after about 7 months of wear, the comfort under the foot started to wear a bit. After about 2 years of wearing, the stitching broke loose on the back of one of the boots about 2 inches wide on the heel cup. (I'm guessing from trying to slide the foot in in a hurry.) The zippers started to come unstitched as well and the laces started to come undone. If you rotate them with a different pair they may be better but have a hard time holding up to heel strikes on concrete working in a prison.

  • 5 out of 5 they are a great boot for a bad back. light weight and all terrain grip make them ideal for farm work getting in and out of equitment and on the job site .They are great in freezing weather and keep feet warm as well as dry easy on/off so the mud stays out side. This is the right boot for the job.. must say comfort is everthing and these are everything !!!

  • 4 out of 5 Felt slightly tighter in the width than I expect for an extra wide rating. Not enough to return. Good support. Gives a nice solid feel. Couple of days of wear and they were feeling good.I wear this shoe daily for work.

  • 5 out of 5 I bought this boot to help get me through a horrible winter. A snowstorm delayed its delivery, but it hasn't snowed since the boot arrived. I've tried it to make sure of the fit and comfort; it scored well on both counts, and it looks great.

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.
