    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    Given my problem I had with a pair of Bates GX 8 GORE TEX Boots, they are overall a great wearing Boot. Also once I was in contact with the right person at Bates today, they went above & beyond to help me with my problem by replacing the Boots. Bates will do their best to correct a problem when you have one.

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    Only had these boots 5 months when the top seam above the Bates Logo at the heal ripped open on both boots. After e-mail's / phone calls / & a letter, Bates sends me a pair of the New Delta 8's ,as I requested to replace them. Upon opening the box of the new ones I noticed that it looks like they sent me a New (Left Boot) & a Recycled (Right Boot) as it had numerous wear marks on the upper & side surface & the right one has a polished shine while the left one has the normal new flat look. After trying them on, New Boot feel on Left Foot , Used Boot feel on Right Foot?? After the money I spent for the GX 8', this is not over by no means!!

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    These boots have been the most comfortable boots I have had. They've lasted me 2.5 years before they were wearing out to the point of replacement with as much as I wear them (Well over 48 hours a week). They still remain water proof but tread on bottom is wearing down and I have destroyed the toe kicking up the rear step of the ambo with them. Would definitely order them again.

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    I owned a pair of bates before that were amazing, the EO2210. After the 2210 were discontinued, I ordered the EO2272 thinking they would be the same boot. boy I was wrong, the 2272 are much narrower than my previous boot even with the extra width, so if anyone is looking for a good boot with the wide width, bates has failed with this style. although the boots are comfortable and perform well in keeping me dry, my feet beg for me to release them after a 12 hour shift. wish I could find another pair of 2210, they were so much more comfortable and I was able to wear them all day long.

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    I have owned more than a dozen pair of bates over the years. I have just ordered my 4th pair of these exact boots. I work fulltime in EMS & have been a firefighter for 19 yrs. Break in time is 1 day max. Its like wearing sneakers with the protection of a tank, they keep your feet dry & traction is unbelievable. I have never had a problem with these or any bates lasting less than a yr. Yes the safety toe can be an issue but I have learned if you don't have fat feet go up a 1/2 size & they seem to fit just fine. Theboot is slightly wider & longer, just enough to make up the difference for the safety toe, Only issue I have with these is due to the gortex once the inside gets wet the stink never comes completely out.

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    I ordered these boots about 2 years ago but never wore them until last month. I always have at least 3 pairs of boots for different events I work. These were perfect because of the waterproof and composite toe. But not lined with insulation to allow me to wear in the hot humid weather we have down south. I have been wearing them daily at work to get use to them before Mardi Gras comes in 2014. First night I had them on was Halloween 2013.(Rainy night and they kept my feet dry). It is now 11/21/13, and they are already ripped. Seams along the upper leather part where the holes for the laces are. It is about 1/2" sized now, but it is right where they bend, so I think it will get bigger. I will say they are super comfortable but was just a waste of money to have boots last less then 1 month.

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    I have had a pair of these boots now for 4 years. I love them. I work EMS and do odd jobs on the side as well, so I wear these boots a lot. Nearly everyday in fact. The outside of the boots is worn but the boots are still waterproof after all this time. The treads are worn out so it is time to retire my current boots. However, I will be buying a new pair of these same boots. I recommend these boots to anyone looking for a high quality, waterproof, and comfortable duty boot that has a composite toe.

    These are light and super comfortable still after almost 2 years. Forget about traction on a wet deck though. They squeek when wet also.

    I too have had several pair of Bates and liked them. But it bothers me that the manufacturer deceptively fails to advise that you order a size wider. These composite toes are way narrower than the boot size. If I ordered a wider size the toe would fit but the boot would not. Avoid these boots. Bates should refund all owners of these because they were deceptive.

    While these boots may be very comfortbale, they do not last long. I've owned these boots for 3 months and the leather on the toe doesn't last long at all. I'm on the coast guard and I'm on my feet all day on a steel boat. Wish they could keep up.

    I bought these for my sons and my self. I have no problems with them. Like any good boot you have to break them in. Took 3 days of wearing them constantly and walked 5 miles in one day. Now they fit like a glove. Soft leather gets scratched easily, so use a conditioner. Will buy again.

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    I'm a big fan of duty boots as regular footwear. I always try to make sure I can get a safety toe, a shank of somesort (preferably steel), waterproofing, and zipper side. These are all the features I value in armoring my feet. They give my ankle support and the extra traction is very useful to me. Since I ride a motorcycle, you can imagine that armor and traction are very essential. I ordered these a week or 2 ago and haven't had problems with these as other reviews mentioned. I have experienced no pain and I have been on my feet for hours at a time. I suspect that my boots fit me because I ordered extra wide so I wonder if others may need extra wide as well to avoid the severe discomfort they are experiencing. As for my experience, my feet feel rock solid and I have noticed that surfaces that would cause a slip are not a problem for these boots. It's like I would feel a slight slip that would become a full slip but the traction tread on these boots grip so well that any los

    They were uncomfortable for about 6 months. They got better and do hurt after long periods of standing around. I probably won't purchase these anymore. They did last well over a year and held up longer than my old Bates.

    Patience is needed. The saying No Pain No Gain definitely applies to these boots. Give yourself 8hrs to 14hrs to break these bad boys in. I spent 8 hrs running up and down hospital stairs and all around, then took them out on rugged terrain for 4 hours. Twist them, stretch them, beat them! It was well worth it! Now they feel like battle class running shoes with all the protection of the safety toe. Make sure you break them in when you've got 8 hrs plus to baby your feet afterwards! The safety toe makes the already rigid construction more rigid. My feet feel ready for anything and comfortable now.

    I also bought these boots because all previous Bates boots were great. The safety toe is horrible on my toes. Wouldn't recommend these boots to anyone. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!!

    Bates Mens GX 8 GORE TEX Composite Toe Side Zip Boot

    I got these boots to work EMS, 24 hours shifts, because in the past my boots from Bates have been so comfortable. The composite toe in these is poorly designed. It digs into the sides of your foot and when you walk and flex your foot it does the same to the top of your foot. After a shift I came home with bruises on the top of my feet.
