There is a removable cushioned insert that delivers all-day comfort, as well as an interior lining designed to promote breathability ventilation and prevent overheating when running or performing strenuous actions.

    • Great product right out of the box
      Reviewer: SubDoc628

      1/7/2016

      Bought these boots because of web reviews. Ordered and received exactly as expected on 3rd business day following order. Great boot right out of the box and used day 1. Worth the extra $50 over cost of other boots. Wonderful comfort and as expected sizing. Flawless construction. Asked a question via email after receipt and received response quickly. Time will tell but very happy customer.

    • To Iraq and back long lasting, great quality boot.
      Reviewer: Brittany

      9/26/2014

      I bought a set of these boots in 2010 a month before I deployed to Iraq and they have been nothing but great. I was a wheeled vehicle mechanic in the Army and I put them through hell and back. I still wear them when I go hiking or working in the shop. Been on many ruck marches and no blisters. LOVE THESE BOOTS!!!!

      Bought a pair of these in 2010 in Iraq. Have used these on numerous field missions. Took them through US Army Sapper school in 2013. I deploy in 3 months to Afghanistan,guess what pair of boots are still serviceable and coming with me. They took me about 2 months to break in but when they do there is nothing that can hurt them, they can take anything. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE BOOTS. SGT Miller US ARMY

      6/30/2013

      I had these boots for 2 years. Even after getting a cut on the side, my fault, I glued the cut together and still use them in the field. The soles look like they are 6 months old, not 2 years.

      Reviewer: bradrian

      5/12/2013

      I wanted to make sure that whatever boots I got would last for awhile, so I plunked down a little bit more change in order to get a high quality boot. I've worn these M-8s now for nearly a year and am very, very glad that I opted for a design with Vibram soles. The soles have held up very well over rugged terrain and show no signs of wearing out. They're plenty tall enough, that's for sure, but I don't mind that little bit of compromise as long as everything else is sturdy and comfortable. I have no idea why Bates is so cheap on the laces, though, because they needed replacing pretty quickly. The lace loops are rock solid, though. Practically NO breaking-in time and a purchase I'd make again!

    • Nice and Light Weight, RUNS LARGE
      Reviewer: Frosty

      3/20/2011

      Great, lightweight boot. Runs a tad large so order 1/2 size smaller than what you would normally wear.
