      I purchased these boots for my son so he can get to and wait at the bus stop without wondering whether his feet will be wet/uncomfortable at school all day. They are beautifully crafted and he said they are very comfortable. Also, I'm a first time shopper with this site and had a great experience. The transaction was seamless.

      I ordered based on reviews, price and size availability. I use “w” width. These shoes are stiff when new but in no time almost forgot they were new. Sole is comfortable. Footing is good too. For my work wish toes were better covered. Recommen you get these.

      10/19/2018

      I had ordered composite toe boots These boots were not composite toes. They're not the worst boots I've ever owned but they're not the best. They have room in them but they're missing a little bit more comfort. Overall I would not buy Bates boots let alone this particular type.

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      We're sorry to hear this wasn't what you were expecting! This is not the composite toe version of this boot, but if you contact our Customer Relations team, they'd be happy to help with a return and finding a composite toe boot.

    • I wore them for three days and they are junk!
      Reviewer: Richard Carine

      8/28/2018

      The sloes at the ball of your feet have no cushioning. It was OK the first day and got worse breaking down. After my third shift in these boots they are done! The worst boot and waste of money I have ever spent. The brand name used to be of quality, but now are just like the rest of the overseas made boots. I wore Bates boots in the early part of my 34 years in Law Enforcement, and have seen this trend evolve. I am back in my Corcoran U.S. made boots and my feet are very happy again.

    • Same reliable fit
      Reviewer: Alfonso Tobias

      6/15/2018

      Have worn these before and they still fit the same as before. Much more comfortable than the composite toe models, those were a lot stiffer than these. My only issue with them is that they seem hotter than before. My feet were a lot more uncomfortable in the hot weather we have here in South Texas. Other than that, it’s the same reliable fit as my previous pairs.

      I'm hard on boots at work and have blown out two pair of Magnums in the past in less than 9 months and came across these. Tried them out because I have always heard good things about bates and I'm not a big fan of the 8" boots (just preference) Have had this pair for 2 years and they've been great! Had to add some insoles at about a year but in all that would be the only complaint. They are light weight and comfortable.

      The boots felt comfortable from the get-go. This is a new product for me, so I have only worn them for a few times so far, but I am very pleased with the fit, comfort, and support. I will be purchasing Bates products in the future.

      There is a break in period be warned! Super uncomfortable compared to other brands I've worn timberland Carolina etc. After a week or so they started to feel more comfortable. For the price they are worth it and boot does run a size big so get a size smaller then normal. I will wear them till they're worn but I am going back to Carolina/Tims after these the extra price is worth it.

      Reviewer: Luke

      12/27/2016

      Years ago, while still in the moving business full time and on my feet heavy lifting daily, I bought my 1st pair. They were basically my daily footwear in all conditions, year-round, 4 seasons for at least 3 years, and walked in over 15 states doing work. I even handed that pair down to a son who wore them for a year or so after ,e. Then my second pair lasted just like the first. I just got my third pair yesterday, about 8 years down the line from my first buy. I know boots. This model, is in my opinion, the best all-around boot available for the money (or even a bit more), period. I've worn many brands and models over the years, but this boot has become my go-to. Expect a break-in period, and eventually to replace the insoles with other good or better than original. But, the boots will give you more wear and comfort than your money's worth. Cheers, Luke

      Years back I would wear the boots till the soles had no more tread delivering mail. They lasted over a year walking through everything! Now they will not last a week. The soles (made in China) come unglued! They fall apart. Bates must be making a lot of profit off the lower quality boots they now sell!

      Reviewer: undead

      7/8/2012

      very comfortable, light weight, breathable, good traction and they look good. But after only three weeks of use the soles started coming unglued from the leather. I was wearing them 5 days a week for 9 hrs a day. This was the first pair of bates and last. I've owned a few pair of magnum brand boots and they lasted about a year before they started coming unglued. To me this is reasonable but three weeks is not. I called military boots about the issues and had no problems getting my money back. The customer service rep was very friendly and helpful. They contacted bates about the issue and they sent a return lable. If you don't plan on using these boots for heavy use then they are great but otherwise look for something else.

I wear them to hike in on the weekends and cover very rugged terrain with no mentionable foot fatigue. Traction is excellent in snow, mud, sand, rock, etc. Best buy for the $$$ that I have seen.
