First pair of Bates, won't be my last!
I am spoiled by my employer with a very generous boot allowance every 6 months, I only mention that because without it, I probably wouldn't have taken a chance with a brand of boots that I had never used before. Boy, am I glad that I did! Just a phenomenal boot from top to bottom!
-They may be the lightest pair of 8" boots w/safety-toe ever
-They are perhaps the most durable boot I have ever worn, I work 12 hours and then go work a few more in the yard at home and I haven't noticed any deterioration of any glue seems or sole wear
-The side zipper, that I thought was a gimmick initially, is awesome! I no longer have to pull with all my strength to get the boots as snug as I like them, the zipper allows me to get them as snug as I like with little to no effort at all.
-The most important thing though, is the COMFORT! I can honestly say that they are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn, without question!OverallComfortArch Support: Excellent arch supportSize: Felt true to sizeWidth: Felt true to width
