Bates GX-8 GORE-TEX 8" Insulated Side Zip Boot

I have had these boots since 2008. I wore them through a hurricane deployment where I spent 30 days working through flooded and damaged terrain. I wear them year around for my FD and flight job. They are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. They are still waterproof and keep my feet warm. I would order a new pair, but I do not need to do that yet as these are still great with a million + miles on them.

Bates GX-8 GORE-TEX 8" Insulated Side Zip Boot

Ok, I thought the first time was a fluke, the sole of my left boot wearing away after only three weeks...So, my department sent them back and got another pair....these lasted all of FOUR weeks before the sole wore away again..in the exact same spot. While these boots are comfortable and fit well, I can't give them a third chance. Too frustrating. I won't even look at another pair of Bates.

Have been wearing the Gortex throughout my ten years of Law Enforcement. Of my ten years I have had three pair now. I have put each pair through sleet, mudd, thick heavy brush country, rain and floods. Every pair held up. Will keep using this brand of boots.

Bates GX-8 GORE-TEX 8" Insulated Side Zip Boot

I have always taken care of my equipment, to include my boots. These boots were great for six months until the winter hit and I needed them the most. The side seem tore on my right boot and started coming off my left boot as well. I contacted Bates and requested a new pair because it was an issue of being poorly made. Bates refused to stand behind their product and I am now boot shopping again. Please Beware!

Bates GX-8 GORE-TEX 8" Insulated Side Zip Boot

I received a pair of these boots for Christmas. So far they are a great boot; lightweight, comfortable, and very flexible. The only problem is the zipper rubs the inside of my leg. Otherwise the best boots I've ever had.

Bates GX-8 GORE-TEX 8" Insulated Side Zip Boot

Comfortable out of the box, and keeps the cold out in the Chicago streets. Good for foot pursuits due to the great ankle support. Fits narrow and a 10.5 is a 10.5 so order the size you wear. if they last the winter i will order another pair!
