Good: Surprisingly waterproof. Medium: Didn't feel really secure/tight on my foot, like there's a lot of extra room inside. Bad: After about 10 months of daily wear, one of the side zippers broke, and some of the velcro has started to come unstitched.

I've owned a number of Bates boots over the years, however I ordered a new pair this spring and have since returned them twice. The first time the zipper broke after a month of wear, the second time the sole on one boot began to separate after two months.

This wasn't my first purchase from Zappos but I'm always amazed just how fast your shipping is. I ordered these on Wed. morning and got them on Thursday afternoon. I call that one heck of a good free delivery service. You guys are great. As for the boots? I've had Bates boots in the past so I already knew what to expect from them. These things are perfect for my job (bar-tending) since i have to stand for many 10-12 hour shifts, sometimes doing some light speed walking. The 8' support helps and I love having side zippers because having to loosen and tighten the laces each time i take them off or put them on would get old quickly. The fit and support seem overall perfect for my needs. Once again, great job and thank you Zappos for having so many outstanding brands of footwear and definitely the best free delivery service I've ever seen. You will absolutely be getting future business from me, a very satisfied customer.

Another great buy from Zappos! An excellent boot whether you're in law enforcement or not. Surprisingly light for a steel toe boot, great ankle support, extremely comfortable, easy on/off with the side zipper. Great tread on bottom too. Highly recommended!

I've had this boot for nearly a year and love them. Company gets us boots once a year and Bates will be my choice again. They are very comfortable, which I need since I work 12 hour shifts.
