    • narrow boots, not for wide feet

    • 1 out of 5 The toes of these boots begin to narrow at the ball of the foot toward the middle toes from both sides. If your feet are deformed from wearing too narrow a shoe while growing up and are all curved and bunched together toward your middle toes then these boots might fit. But if you have feet that are not deformed and have toes that are straight these will not fit you. The curve of these boots are almost the same from both sides, just slightly less from the big toe side. A quick glance and not looking at both side at once you could confuse left and right shoe. With only wearing these boots for a few hours and even less with walking (i'm disabled) these boots have caused blisters on the side of my big toes near my toe nails. Not the bottom of my toes from walking, but from the boots being so narrow they rub across the top of my toes. And I did buy a size larger too, there is plenty of room between my toes and the end of the boot. The only thing I can say good about these boots is the side zipper makes it very easy to put on and take off. Since i'm disabled it is very difficult for me to tie my shoes and I was looking for something I wouldn't need to tie. The zippers do work. Since I can pull my leg up on my knees and the zippers are on the inside side of the boot I can reach the zippers. Since i'm on a fixed income and these boots have cost me a month's worth of groceries my only option now is to try to cut them up and try to make them wider. Other then the problem with the toes these boots are comfortable enough. If you buy these boots I hope you have better luck.

    • 5 out of 5 I need a VERY wide boot and I tried many brands and many styles without success. This one worked! I did try other Bates boots and found that they were not as wide as this style. They fit right away, were comfortable to wear - surprisingly short break in period. I love these and plan to order another pair right away as a back up.

    • 4 out of 5 Lightweight, comfortable, inexpensive, good wear length... For the price, what more could one ask for? While not an insulated boot, if you wear good winter socks, plenty warm enough for tramping around in light snow. When I ride to Sturgis, I wear these instead of my regular riding boot because they are that comfortable. Have walked 23 miles in a pair of these without any aches or blisters. Only gets four stars because if you don't unzip them all the way and try to force your foot into or out of them, you can damage the zipper. Use the zipper properly, and you will have no problems. Would prefer a metal zipper instead of nylon.

    • Great Boots, Great Price!

    • 5 out of 5 If you are looking for boots that will withstand rain, mud, dirt, rough terrain, etc then look no further. These combat boots will keep your feet comfortable and dry. I bought mine for paintballing. The type of paintball I play is in heavily wooded areas. The fields have creeks, mud, swampy areas, trees, vegetation, hills, and more. I've played in the rain, hot weather, cold weather, etc and these boots have kept my feet feeling good. One day it started raining and didn't stop. While all the other players feet felt like they were swimming, my feet remained dry. I don't get blisters or any other problems with these either. And yes, I walk and stand for HOURS on in. Pros: - Price; that's always a first right? These boots aren't price crazy (I've seen combat boots for over $200). - Durability; rough terrain isn't an issue for these boots - Comfortable; while walking, running, and standing for hours, my feet didn't hurt too much - Side Zip; makes the boots feel more secure around the ankle - Lightweight; they don't make it feel like you are walking in water Cons: - I have yet to find anything wrong with these boots

    • 5 out of 5 These boots are great. It took one day to break them in & they are totally comfortable, low maintenance (haven't had to polish them at all). I'm on my feet all day at work & I never feel like I wish I have to take them off.

    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.
