Security friendly fiberglass shank, cement construction and non-metallic components won’t set off metal detectors.
I have just ordered this same boot for the 3rd time. I have been wearing this boot at my security job 5 days a week minus 2 week vacation every year for the last 5 years. The bottom on one shoe partially came loose about 4 years later. I used GOOP to glue it back and it worked fine. Only until a couple of weeks ago I found water getting inside the shoes during rain and I found the bottom had a spot totally worn out.
I have checked back my order history and found its price gone up $20 from 5 years ago. However, I find this boot very comfortable right out of the box and it is absolutely worthy the price since it really lasts. I love this boot! One thing I have to add is that I don't doing a lot of walking on my job.
This is the first boot I've bought that is comfortable right out of the box. Very light weight
While the boot is certainly light weight and stylish, its construction is aweful. The stitching around the the leather piece that houses the eyelets has come apart several times and had to be sewn and glued by a good shoemaker. The stitching around the heel where the leather meets the nylon has come apart, another trip to the shoemaker. I would think long and hard before I would purchase another pair of Bates Boots. Hey Quartermaster, how about replaceing these? Size 10 is perfect.
True to its name, this boot is very light, but that does not seem to take away its durability. It is comfortable and has good traction. It's holds a decent shine, too. Not bad at all!
this boot has a unique design and is very stylish. you can't beat the price of the boot anywhere.
Working in a casino, I am on my feet all day, either dealing with medical responses or guest disputes. I bought my first pair of the Ultra Lights 3 years ago and they have now just started tearing out on the sides. These are a great boot for the type of daily wear and tear of walking and quick response officers. Light weight and comfortable right out of the box. I will buy another pair.
Q: dOES IT HAVE A SIDE ZIPPER?
