I've had these boots for about 3 weeks now, and love them! I ordered 10.5 Extra Wide, the size is true to fit.
Compared to the "Bates 8 inch Mens Tactical Sport Zipper Duty Boot", These boots a more breathable and flexible, also more comfortable with extra cushion in the heel of the boot. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the "Bates" logo on the outside of the boot, at the bottom is already starting to peel off, which is attached to the honeycomb design. So I'm assuming all the honeycomb design will eventually peel off, beings its a "tape like" material. So after extended use, you may just have a plain mesh boot. I don't see this affecting the performance. So overall I think its a pretty decent boot.
