A Solid Boot!
July 09, 2016

These boots have been worn for +2 as firefighter station boots. They have held up very well to abuse. The waterproof GORETEX works and the Thinsulate for those cold days stuck in the deep snow and slush kept my feet warm and dry. Although sometimes in the summer they can be a little on the warm side. I can't give them a 5 star because the stitching finally blew out along the inside of the boot near the ball of the foot, basically where the boot flexes. That being said the only reason I'm here writing this review is because I'm buying another set of boots! A tip: buy some Thorogood lace up zippers and you got a quick set of front zip boots.

New boots
November 12, 2015

This pair replaces a pair of DuraShocks with the side zipper that I purchased in December 2013. I tried the waterproof version because the zipper on my old pair failed as a result of my ankle holster pressing down on where the zipper/boot flexed. Lacing the boots each shift is a pain in the neck, but for the most part they're comfortable even when breaking them in. A durable pair of boots for the money.

I've had these boots for almost ten years. The soles just started to wear out. They were 600 Thinsulate. Very warm for those cold days on the road jobs.

great boots
January 24, 2015

I have worn these boots for 2 years now. 4 days a week. 10 hours a day. (some days longer for OT). By far the most comfortable boots I've owned. I have had other Bates that I thought were nice until I purchased these. Had some 5.11's once as well and they don't hold a candle. They still look professional and hold a shine well. The only think I wish Bates would do with these is place lace up hook style islets on the top portion, as you have to loosen them until the laces almost come out. Even without this feature, I will purchase another pair soon.
