  • 5 out of 5 These were for my wife and she loves them. They are comfortable, the sizing was correct and they have already proven to be waterproof. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for work or hiking

  • 5 out of 5 Bought these after being very pleased with my previous purchase of the same item in a 4" height (GX-4 GTX). And I have not been disappointed!...Please read my Feb.2015 review of that item for more details. This is yet another superbly comfortable and supportive boot that can be worn all day, right out of the box. The fit is amazing!! It cradles & the area under the arch, while at the same time, allows plenty of toe room, so there's never an issue of cramping. The breathable Gortex membrane provides comfort indoors & out, and makes this boot impervious to wet conditions, which we have plenty of, here in N.E.Ohio!! After a dose of rain or snow, or muddy water, they just need a wipe down with a damp towel to restore the luster of their beautiful hard shine. The laces are of the same type as the GX-4. They hold their setting without slipping. In addition, the GX-8 has the side zipper, which means you only have to set the laces once, and after that, the zipper makes the on/off process a 5-second miracle!! I've had other boots with basically the same features, but these are by far the most comfortable, and the best looking. And, as if that isn't enough, they are the lowest-priced, compared with the others. How can you not love that?

  • 5 out of 5 With the crazy ever changing weather here these are my daily wear. They're light, well constructed and saved me a broken ankle. First day I wore them, stepped in a metal channel that was covered by water, Dr at the ER said if it wasn't for the support of the boots at my ankle I'd have snapped it. I won't wear any other! 3 years on the same pair, wearing them almost daily and still going strong!

  • Incredible boots

  • 5 out of 5 Recently I purchased a pair of the GX-8 GTX SZ boots . From the box I wore them for an entire day. No blisters, no rubs just an excellent fit and incredibly comfortable boot. Be sure to purchase your correct size, no need to compensate irregular size. Great boots!!!

  • 1 out of 5 I purchased this boot from miliaryboots.com in October 2013. The zipper on these boots is not made as well as the rest of the boot. Wore them every day commuting to work on my motorcycle and all day at work. The zipper tore away from the fabric just before Christmas 2013. While the rest of the boot is well made and it's comfortable; the zipper is a deal breaker and I've learned a valuable lesson in what to look for when purchasing these boots.

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.
