Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

I bought a pair of Bates and they have lasted me 4 years. I bought a pair of these as a replacement. These boots lasted me 6 months and started falling apart. Bates has always been a good boot. Maybe I got a bad batch.

These boots make you feel as though you are walking on clouds. There is support for your entire foot. I will definitely buy another pair once these are worn.

I will not except anything else from work. These boots are very comfortable and are just awesome! I work on a small patrol boat 400 plus hrs a year and my feet stay dry even in the marsh and mud flats of the Carolinas.

Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

Just purchased my 3rd set of these boots. The first two lasted me 4 yrs per pair. I wear them everyday at work, 9 hr shifts all year round. They keep feet warm in winter and keep feet cool in summer. Of course the sole tread wore out by the end of 4 yrs and other areas of expected wear and tear. I still keep the old sets to wear for training and work around the yard at home. They shine up well for those wanting to look professional. Ill be back in 4 yrs to get my next pair.

Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

This is the second pair of Bates boots I have owned and am sold on this brand. Been wearing this pair for a year on patrol and with a little polish they still look new. Zippers are holding up great and just missing a little tread off the bottom from some sharp rocks. About to order another pair just so I have a backup ready when these wear out.

The zipper tab broke completely off after about the 10th time of wearing. Really like the comfort, waterproof, and appearance. The zipper will work but difficult to zip. I can unzip easily.

Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

I must say that after reading only a few of the reviews for this boot, I find my comments redundant. I have had these boots for over 2 years and have worn the tread down to a thin skin and the stitching and seams are still holding together. The water proof aspect has given up, but unlike other boots that fall apart in a short time, these have seen many miles of walking and are still running strong. I am one very satisfied customer and am now placing an order for another 2+ years of many more miles.

Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

On my second pair of these. The first pair is still waterproof and comfortable, but the tread is worn down after 2 years of abuse. My current pair is in its second year as well, but the tread has held up considerably better. Boots are comfortable but do require a couple days to break in. Mine have survived a lot of abuse in the elements, extreme temperatures, running, going prone, beating the toes up, crawling, and everything else associated with duty wear and training. Both pairs remain fully waterproof after many attempts at drowning them. I haven't found anything that can kill them. I briefly switched to another brand and switched right back. Also, these boots will hold polish and shine up quite nice if you've got to worry about inspections.

Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

I'm on my second pair of these boots. I think they are very comfortable and like the way the look and the side zipper. But, for some reason the material around the achilles tendon starts separating. This happened with the first pair and Galls exchanged them for me ASAP. A lot of people in my department have these boots so I tried them out. I'm just going to return them and get my money back. I've owned bates before but oh well.

Bates 8" GX Side Zip Gore-Tex Boot

I really like the fit and feel of this boot. I would have given them 5 stars, but the Gore-tex liner makes your feet sweat (and smell) after a long shift when it's warm and there is a limit to the waterproofing when standing in snow for an extended period of time. This is my second pair and the pros definitely outweigh the cons!

I do like the zipper feature, didn't think I would! The left boot was tight, it has broken in now but now the tread is starting to peel off after only two months. I work in and around water, feet stay dry as long as I keep it below the top.

Now I'm online right now ordering another pair! I had these for about 3 years now so it's time for another pair! Get some!

Really a great boot, it takes a bit to break in and can be a pain to drive in at first but I love it. Stepped in a huge deep slush puddle the other day and stayed nice and dry! Definitely would recommend this for a good winter boot.

I've only just recieved these boots and I can say that right out of the box they are very comfortable. I have had Bates products in the past being in the Navy, and in law enforcement, and these are the niceset pair I have had yet.

these boots are comfortable, and I have always bought bates since the military and into fire service.I work a med size city f.d.24hr shift by nightime they are sweaty or not waterproof have to put them on the radiator behind my rack even with polishing every shift.I just went through snowmageddon shoveling and pulling stuck motorists and breaking icicles off community buidings and feet were usually wet resorting to wearing my f.d. rubber boots to stay dry. I buy new boots every year and that is how long tread lasts for me but they are lightwieght and comfy

These are very comfortable right out of the box but in six months of everyday wear the sole was almost slick. Now in nine months they are cracking around the sides and very hard to zip up. Good for casual use but not a every day work boot.
