I was issued a pair of these boots on my deployment and they were great at first. They are still incredibly comfortable, but unfortunately I cannot wear them anymore. I am a vertical construction troop and wore these boots out in about 2 months. The side zipper is sticking because of all the sand, the soles did not hold up in the gravel and the leather ripped on the toe, rendering them "unserviceable." My opinion: Great for comfort, but just not tough enough.

This is my second pair. A year ago, I bought my first pair and wore them every for my business, a lawn care business. I really like the zip up sides, composite toe, light weight, and comfort. I never expected the boot to wear as well as they did. I had a pair of Oakley s the year before and they didn’t hold up nearly as well as these did. That’s why I bought another pair this year. Trouble is, I haven’t stopped wearing the old ones! Other than being really dirty, the only real signs of wear in the year I’ve worked them seems to be about an inch of stitching on the left boot’s uppers are coming un-done, the right boot’s zipper has lost its tab (replaced with a paper clip, and the soles of both boots are pretty worn. If they still make these next year, I’ll probably be getting yet another pair a year from now.

These really are great boots! My job requires me to go out to test sites frequently, rain or shine, sun or snow. I've tried sneakers which are comfortable, grip odd shapes well (I climb all over test equipment all day), but didn't have a nice high heel to keep snow/mud out. I've also tried work boots, but they were too big and clunky, and didn't really give me the mobility I needed crawling all over things. These are the perfect in between. They are very snug, I had to break them in for about half a day here in the office, and that was it! They are somewhere between a sneaker and a boot, perfect for me. You get the comfort and flexibility of a sneaker, with the high ankle support and keeping mud/snow out of a work boot. I couldn't have thought of a better product for what I do! I've now worn them out to the site for about 3 weeks and so far they are holding up great and I have no complaints. Also, a coworker of mine bought another Bates boot and he too has only praises.

Bought these for my son for Christmas. He wanted them for air softing. Just asked him how they work and he says "they are great!" He wore them to the mountain (in the snow) last weekend and loved them. He is super happy with how they fit and for what he is using them for, they seem to be perfect!
