Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

The 1st pair I bought was great. Stayed comfortable for over two years. Bought another pair less than a year ago, my feet would start hurting after a few hours on the job a couple of months in the new pair. The heel started cracking out on both shoes by six months. A great product that quality went down the tubes. I'm not buying Bates again.

Blisters all over! - September 04, 2013

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

I had these boots for about 2 months doing light walking at work with no problems. The past week I have been doing a lot of walking during a 12 hour shift and I have blisters all over my feet! The rub on my heel is so bad it ripped my sock completely two days in a row. In addition to both of my heels being rubbed raw, I also have blisters on two of my toes and the ball of my foot . The only good thing I can say is that they do clear the metal detector without having to take them off.

Good for Motorcycle boots - August 27, 2013

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

I needed a boot that would work well for hiking and also be good protection for riding motorcycle. These seem to be just the ticket. They are very comfortable for hiking as well as riding. They are not the waterproof style but I have stayed dry in light rain. We did ride in a very heavy steady downpour for about an hour and there was a small amount of leakage around the bottom laces after half an hour or so but otherwise my feet were dry. I was impressed. I am a passenger on the motorcycle. They do seem to collect dust but maybe that is because I sprayed them with a boot water-proofer. We live on a gravel road so that doesn't help. They seem to breath well so they are comfortable in the hot weather.

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

I have bought numerous boots from Galls. I have tried several different brands. This was my first set from Bates. I based my choice on the reviews and the price. These were just a backup pair for my converse duty boots that I love. I thought I would get another set of boots without a steel/composite toe. The first day I got them I wore them around the station. They were instantly painful and no support on the inside. I am not sure if it was just my foot or the boot, but they rubbed on the top arch and the bottom felt like it had no insole in it at all. I am sending them back. I didn't want to chance breaking them in and still not liking them.

I have these boots in the mens non zipper and I love them. They fit great right out of the box and no break in time. I wear them every day and have no trouble out of them and they shine like a new dime.

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

First time I put them on they were comfy, great cushion, very fashionable look. I can run in them with great comfort. They are cool to wear. The only thing is I wish the strings were longer and the tongue at the ankle bone jabs in some but with a good pair of socks they will be fine. I highly recommend these boots for female officers.

I bought this boot when I first started, and I was always on my feet. It took a couple days, maybe a week, to break in, but they are super comfortable. Definitely worth the money!! Great buy, and worth the money!!

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

I ordered my Bates in May of 2006 and I'm still wearing them. The stitching has held up very well and a good buff and shine will get rid of the scuffs pretty well. The inside is wearing where my heels rub on the boots, but they're still comfy enough to get me through 24s and 48s without killing my feet. Definitely recommend the Bates brand.

These boots are great. I wore them the first day and they were already extremely comfortable. Almost no break in period required. They didnt hurt my ankles at all. Zipper is a blessing. Definately a smart buy!

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

I am ordering my 2nd pair as my current ones are well over 2 years old. They are very comfortable though I don't lace the hook at the ankle as it rubs too much. I hoped to only use the zipper but they fit like a glove and have to unlace them to put on.

I worked in a county detention facility and now in a prison. With bad feet, I needed comfortable footwear. They feel like they were made for me. They polish up great. I WILL order another pair.

I will never wear another boot. These boots are light and comfortable. I can be on my feet all day and they are not sore. Like wearing my favorite pair of tennis shoes. I love these boots.

I like the fact that these are light weight, but they they were very uncomfortable. The back of the shoe dug into my ankle. I only wore them twice.

I wear these boots every day and am buying a second pair so I can alternate. I won't wear another boot and I have told all the female officers at my department about them. Definitely worth the money!

I needed a pair of boots that would last. I work in Fire/EMS, and I am hard on footwear. These are awesome. They are comfortable and seem to last, despite my abuse of them.

I read all the reviews prior to purchasing these boots and was impressed....until they arrived. I have had major problems finding boots that fit and are comfortable and these are no different. Most uncomfortable part is the middle section where boot bends as you step....it dug into my ankle. Wore them about 1/2 hour and couldn't bear to wear them all day.

I was cautious about buying shoes online, but did my research, and read the reviews here. These shoes fit like a glove from the moment I put them on! I'm glad I chose the lightweight vs the steel. Fantastic boot. Fantastic price. Thanks to all who posted to help me make a good decision.

I've purchased a pair of these ultralight boots based on the reviews, and yah, good and true. I am ordering another pair to alternate. These I believe will last me until I retire from Corrections.

I have had my boots for two years and have worn them non stop. I bet I have over 6000 hrs in them and they are just now ready to be replaced. My feet love these boots.

Bates 8 inch Womens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot

Have worn a pair for several years with lots of foot and trail patrol. I have very small, blister prone, problem feet; but the only time I got blisters with these was on a pack test (carry 45 lbs 3 miles in 45 minutes). The toe has been scuffed and scratched a few times, so only looks good if freshly polished, and the leather toe seems to have dried out some. still works well for everyday, but not for dress/court. Nice and light and flexible.

Very light and comfy to wear. I stuck a set of gel inserts in these babies and they are a pleasure to wear for 10 hours. Great traction, easy to run and climb in. Only negative I can think of : if you have bony ankles, you may want to take a while to break these in. Would buy these again for sure.
