    • Best boots ever
      Reviewer: Joe

    • Good boot so far...
      Reviewer: Bill W.

      10/2/2018

      I work in a factory, I'm on concrere anywhere from 8.5 to 10 hours a day. First thing I did was to replace the insert (typical thin) with a thicker, more durable one. Break in went smooth, they are very light, and quiet. I'm only giving 4 stars because I'm not sure how long they'll last yet. Pretty happy with them so far though.

    • Too Narrow, Way too narrow - Toes in a vise narrow
      Reviewer: Roy

      5/31/2018

      Sadly, these are not nearly as wide as I was expecting from Bates advertised as an EW boot. Unfortunately these are going back for something else. I wanted to love these as much as my Bates 5" Tactical Sport Composite Toe side zip boots which fit perfectly in the 8.5 EW size. I ordered these in the same size thinking that Bates boots would have consistent sizes but I was wrong. As soon as I stood up in these I realized my feet would be bleeding by the end of a typical work day. There is no breaking in composite toe boxes, so if it's too small in the toe box, it's always too small. I am on the fence whether to exchange these for size 9 EW and try again, or just go for a different boot all together. It's always challenging finding a shoe or boot that will actually fit my wide feet without having to "size up" so much that the shoes are so long that they become a trip hazard. For anyone with a narrow foot, these are probably awesome boots and I'm jealous of those with narrow/normal feet that can buy shoes anywhere.

    • Not satisfied with the second pair I purchased.
      Reviewer: Tommy Brooks

      5/31/2018

      I have purchased this type boot two times. The first pair that I bought fitted perfectly , with no problem. So I decided to buy a second pair and wore the boot two times and it appears that the right foot of the boot fits poorly its as if the boot has stretched -or un-even its flops while Im walking. I really think the left shoe is a damaged product. I really need a replacement of this boot. Please advise for a return.

    • Great boot for about 6 months. Tread melts off.
      Reviewer: Cliff Meinhardt

      4/4/2018

      I have two pairs of these and alternate them everyday. I am rough on them and use them for construction. After about 6 months the tread on both were at 50%. Then I noticed that the back started ripping and the support started rubbing on my leg so I stopped alternating and wore one pair all the time. Now the one pair I use has about 10% tread and 0% on the heel. I have an older pair of Bates that has a different tread style and they aren't composite toe. They have about 90% tread left so I don't get it. Why they are still using this material is beyond me. The Gx-8 is a comfortable boot but I would look elsewhere.

      Reviewer: Walt Krafft

      3/24/2017

      I have only been wearing them 3-6 hours per day so far and the fit is fine. When the spring mud clears up I will start wearing them for the whole day.

    • Solid boot
      Reviewer: Bill

      2/19/2015

      The boot was actually very comfortable.. except the extra wide just wasn't wide enough. I run a EEE but I think the extra wide is only EE. But boot was well made.

    • Great Boot.....But not for long
      Reviewer: AFBootWearer

      9/29/2013

      These boots were great when they first came out of the box, perfect fit, comfortable and lightweight... However as time passed the soles lost tread quickly, discolored quickly, weren't water-resistant like they said, and the soles punctured quickly as well. As others stated, if the quality improved I'd purchase them again but as it stands not until the issues are fixed.

    • awesome boots
      Reviewer: JWB777

      9/27/2013

      Although they last no more than six months if worn daily, I have purchased evry brand and boot from a to z and you cannot beat the comfort and light weight and grip these boots offer.And they are beautifully designed. I wear them to combat overseas, to work,to the gym , the beach, everywhere everyday.. literally. I cannot find anything superior to this boot since 2007 when Ipurchased my first pair

    • pretty good starting out
      Reviewer: jay

      11/6/2012

      They are really light weight for a safety toe boot. were fairly comfortable for the first 2 weeks, after that the insole seemed to get really hard and no matter how tight i had them my feet slid around. and they fit perfectly which is odd. heel slip in combat boots is not good.

    • Great at First
      Reviewer: Joseph Brunnquell

      9/25/2012

      I've had these boots for almost six months. They were great. But after the first month the sole started to break off. Then a hole in the side along a stitch line appeared. There is almost no tread left. I wear these boots every day. They are extremely comfortable but unless the issues have been resolved I wouldn't buy them again.
