Bates Men's 8 inch Duty Boot

I bought these boots in Oct 2009. Today is Aug 28 2013, and I am wearing them as I type this. They have survived three years foot patrol as a security officer, then three years in a restaurant kitchen, and two more years behind a bar. I'm about to replace them, but only because i've worn almost all the way through the tread in the sole. I'll certainly be replacing them with an identical pair.

I have had a pair of these since 2006, I wore them first as a security officer, then as an EMT, then while I was a Corrections officer, I finally, had to but another pair this month, due to the sole starting to come off.

I have had these boots for 3 years now and except for a zipper breaking they have held up well. The lightness of these boots are unreal.

Bates Men's 8 inch Duty Boot

These boots hurt both sides of my ankles when I first put them on. Ive been wearing them for a few weeks now and they feel a little better. I work Casino Security and they are great for running from Carpet to a wet Kitchen without worrying about slipping. Break in periode is the only bad part about this boot.

I have had a pair of these for almost a year and had to buy insoles for comfort. The stitching is busting loose on all the seams.

Bates Men's 8 inch Duty Boot

These boots seem to be designed for those of us with flat feet. They are very comfortable right out of the box. They won't last as long as some of the higher priced boots as I replace my boots annually due to the abuse they get from the heat and terrain here in the desert. But for me, comfort comes first. Excellent product for the price.

Overall a good boot to wear but after a year the sole is separating, inside liner tearing, and on the outside where the leather and nylon meet is separating too. But for the 1st year it was perfect and very comfortable.

Bates Men's 8 inch Duty Boot

Very comfortable!! Lasted through a lot of training and range use. Didn't seem to handle snow very well. It did get a rip between eyelets on top of top of my foot after 3 months. Very light, cant go wrong with this boot!

I've always worn Bates, and until this pair they were great. But for some reason, the quality went down the drain. After about 8 months, the soles started separating and the rubber started coming off in chunks.

These boots are wonderful. After a year, they're showing some wear, mostly around the heels, and the laces needed replacing, but are still very wearable. I'm going to try the quarter boot next time.

Bates Men's 8 inch Duty Boot

Hurt pretty bad for about a week until broken in, but very comfortable after that. Sometimes they dig into your ankle a bit. They've held up for over a year of heavy use now.

These boots are a great buy for those of us who are on a budget. They are lightweight, comfortable, and with no metal parts high security environments are a breeze. I will no doubt get another pair.

These are the most cofortable boots I've ever had. They feel like I'm wearing sneakers, that's a big plus being a hospital security officer. I walk an average of 10+ miles a day. I highly recommend these boots.

Bates Men's 8 inch Duty Boot

I had this pair of boots for almost 2 years and I wore them almost every day. The only Problem I had after all of this time was that the inside began to tear a little, basically from taking your foot out so much.... Very Comfortable and durable.

This is a great boot but the lining on the back of the heel inside is starting to wear down and I've only had the boots for about 6 months.

Throughout my career I've been through many boots. These boots are extremely lightweight but they don't last long. The eyelets were the first thing to start breaking.

You can't find a better boot for the price. They are so light it's almost like wearing tennis shoes.

These are the lightest and most comfortable boots I have ever worn! They don't get uncomfortable after long hours of wear and there is no build-up of moisture inside the boot. For anyone on a budget but still wants a respectable boot, these are for you!
