I've worn these boots about 300 days of the past year. I bought them for motorcycle boots but they are so comfortable I wear them for anything. They are very stable and prevent my foot from rolling. I wish they were a nubuck or rough side out, since I hate to shine shoes. I recommend them highly.

Hard Charging Boot Tester - I'm in the coast guard and always on the go...I've been through several pair of boots in the last few years. To save money I started buying BATES brand boots from the Base Exchange. I have to say they are comfortable with hardly any break in period, but have a notoriously short life span. I work on a flight line and pound about 3-4 miles of concrete a day...let me tell you with these pair of BATES the tread was worn "flat" within 3 months, maybe I just walk wrong, but I doubt it. I would not recommend these to anyone who cares about durability...even some of the seams are coming up.

These have to be the best boots that I have ever worn. I am flat footed and have tried a lot of different boots and tried tons of insoles and nothing compares to these boots. They are warm, dry, light, and they are definitely the last boots that I will buy.

WATERPROOF...so its not breathable...will make your feet sweat but that's the point I guess... they are stiff when you get them but a week in to wearing them a few hours a day made them very comfortable...good grip on sole, deep grooves mean you bring in a a lot of snow unless you have that bristle boot cleaner by the door.

Bates makes great boots but I do have a few problems with these boots. I am a truck driver so I work outdoors around a Midwest winter. Once these boots got salt on the leather they absorbed water. If you buy these and use them on salted streets get some good boot wax for leather. Once I did this they were water resistant. I would definitely not consider these waterproof, though. Still these make great work boots.

I bought these for work when I first became an EMT. I have worn them 50 hours a week for the last 3 years and they have stood up to everything I put them through. Waterproof is right, you can stand in 8 inches of water in these and have dry feet. They have always been light and comfortable, flexible enough for maneuverability, but still tough enough to protect your ankles. After 3 years, I have worn the sole completely off so it's time for a new pair.
