Purchased for my husband for work. These shoes meet his high standards for a boot that remains comfortable during twelve or more hour work days.

The shoe itself is very comfortable, lightweight and true to size so nice to find size EE! The upper has a break in period each time that I wear the shoes I can wear them longer but the first day after 4 hours I had to change back into other S/shoes. The upper was chaffing the skin around my ankle the next break in period I was able to finish my eight hour shift but was definitely ready to take them off. The third wearing I did my eight hours plus four over but again was anxious to get them off. There are very few shoes that are perfect for me but since these are EE wide I'll do my best to endure the break in period that is about over. Also I had to skip a day between each break in period which is pretty common for me.

My son LOVES these boots and wears them for work and play! They support his aching feet and keep them dry and warm Our only issue was that his silly Mom bought the low cut style (he prefers the higher cut one) as he finally blew out the zipper EVEN though the strap made them still wearable! Great durable BUY!!!!

I am very happy with my new Bates work boots. They are actually lighter than expected, and comfortable.

Surprisingly light weight, and the sole is nicely cushioned — like a high-top athletic shoe. The toe area is roomy. Side zipper works smoothly and makes it easy to slip the boot on and off.

this was to be a wider fit for me but instead these shoes are extremely narrow , they are labeled extra wide but not even a normal width.

I love these boots straight from the box. I have worn them for a week, 16 hours a day and my feet do not hurt! The toe box is a little big but that is a good thing because I have to kneel down periodically and they don't squeeze my toes.

I truly love this model. The boots wear well and guard my truly awful feet. I'm on my feet at work anywhere up to 19 hours at a time working on Movie and TV sets in studio and on location. The Velocitor Boot has helped me get through so many long days by cushioning my walk and helping me avoid problems that so many co-workers endure.

Really, really wide. I wear tactical boots to work every day. Mainly Bates with the side zip. I tried this model after many great reviews. It's much wider than average and does not cushion impact like other models from Bates. I'm relegating them for yard and garden work. Even with orthotics in them and laced down as tightly as they would go the boots are painfully loose.

I wear a true 10 1/2 Medium and I have a low volume forefoot so this boot definitely runs true to size. I found the forefoot to be a little on the roomy side, but that can be filled with a thicker sock. The leather is a bit stiffer than I anticipated and the rubber clutch pad is slightly binding when I walk, so breaking them in will probably take a couple rides. This boot has good support, decent arch support, and a nice gripping clutch pad at an affordable price.

On this particular model it comes with a zipper on the side for easy on and off. However, that zipper gets stuck and jams over and over. Which is why I returned them. Style and comfort were great though.

Comfortable shoes but for a woman they were a little big, Im usually a size 7 but these felt like a 7.5

Great boot! I’m a UPS driver so I’m on my feet working 10-14 hours per day and they feel great.

Expected better quality for the price. The stitching is uneven. I have submitted a photo for verification. The boots are a nice summer riding boot just way overpriced for the quality you get.

Although there is no arch support they are good for being on your feet all day and pretty comfortable.

Wide enough for a true 12ee. Look decent, lightweight.
