Got these boots two years ago, they were the first duty boots I have ever owned. I work 24 hour EMS/Fire shifts, lots of miles on these boots. They are still comfortable! Never will I purchase another brand.
In my 20+ years of law enforcement I have tried several brands of boots. These are by far the best and very comfy. Light weight, no break in, and last a long time. In the FL heat with the road (blacktop) temps making the soles melt I wear out the soles before anything else. I like the water proof and they work great as long as the water does not come over the top!
Sturdy and light weight. Minimal break-in period. I wear them with high socks and they are super comfortable. I bought them because they were recommended and now I can second that recommendation.
I didn't purchase these boots from this site, but it's clear this is a site for professionals, so I'm adding my review here. I got these boots thinking I had finally found the boots that covered everything: waterproof, flexible, grip on flat surfaces and also natural terrain. I was in heaven for 2 months, then snow and with it, salt, arrived. Suddenly, my feet were soaked. It looks as though the soles have separated from the body of the shoe, either due to poor adhesive or some other reason, and moisture leaks in through the bottom of the shoe, where the gore tex does not cover any area. It seems to be a hit-or-miss situation with these boots, and only the women's - the men's reviews don't reveal anything similar. They don't have a warranty, and are made in China. I never contacted Bates - they might be helpful, I don't know. I was too disappointed to bother. I'm sticking with Danner.
Fair at best. Looks like an air-cast on your foot. Zipper idea is lost when you have nothing to pull on to guide your foot in the boot. Low back cuts into the back of your ankle until you break them in... Harley Davidson makes a better zip boot with all these features!
