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.
