A GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane keeps your feet dry and comfortable even in harsh weather. YKK® side-zippers makes it easy to slip in and out of your boots in a hurry. The cushioned insoles are removable for an adjustable comfort level. Bates® Men's GX-8 GORE-TEX® 8" Side Zip Boots are exceptionally lightweight to reduce foot fatigue on duty.
Fits well out of the box. Relatively short break-in period. Comfortable.
Cant beat this boot after there broke in. I wear them daily and on the weekend they get severe use. Sorry to see the price up so high at one time i bougth them for around $140.00 on sale.
This shoes is poorly rated by everyone else on this website. Straight out of the box I noticed that the leather was cheap, the zipper got stuck, one in-sole was the wrong length, and the comments/reviews provide widely decribed this boot as a better item. I will say this boot has great grip in the sole and that's about it. I have owned several different brands of LE style duty boots and these will not do. I am a very active patrol officer and not just a traffic officer that walks 20 ft. This is not a boot to walk any further in. Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra $'s and buy a better brand, your feet and body will thank you.
Just got new boots,very stiff but seem like they are more of a winter boot. Well made.
Awesome boots, I've had them for about two years and have had no problems what so ever.
Purchased these boots back in December of 2006 and I'm just now replacing them. Very good, sturdy and comfortable boot, able to run, jog and walk comfortably. Would recommend to anyone.
Great boots. Got a pair of $200+ plus Danner boots for Christmas but even after allowing for the break in period these boots are the best. Very comfortable out of the box and except for where my BUG has satworn the upper portion of one boot they have been very wear resistant. Highly recommend.
These are by far the best boots I've ever purchased, they hold up great in all terrains from construction sites I work to city streets. They're comfortable, flexible and water proof. They keep my feet warm for the most part especially when wearing wool socks. Bates is definately my new brand of choice. Wish I would have know about QM when I bought these boots I'd have saved about $25.
Q: Do these boots come in any other colors like sage or brown ?
A: They only make these in Black, or Tan at this time.
