I bought these for my husband for work. He says that they're very comfortable and much better than the cheap work boots used to wear. The only minor drawback is there's no tab for making these easy to put on.
I been wearing these boots for about a week now. Great sleek look, lightweight, and pretty comfortable. My only complaint is basically they squeak whenever I take a step but that may be because they're not broken in yet. Another customer mentioned that they are kind of hard to put on but other than that and the noise they're great for the price.
The best feature of these boots is that they're extremely lightweight like the manufacturer says however they are lacking in several other areas. One of my complaints is that they are too narrow for my feet and I take a regular with running shoe, and boot. I have to say they are marginally comfortable just like any other standard military boot on the market. My main complaint is they do make quite a bit of noise when walking. I haven't been able to get rid of that. they are really form fitting but the drawback is they are extremely difficult to put on it take off. The laces are trying to short so just keep that in mind because you'll most likely have to replace them with a set of longer laces. the end of the day I'm kind of disappointed with his boot. I was expecting more from a company as reputable as Bates. I would not recommend purchasing these
These boots are very difficult to put on. I never considered that as something to think about with boots until I bought these. I should've bought a size wider or bigger and it would have taken care of that problem. Maybe that is part of the design because they do fit really snug and securely on my feet and are pretty darn comfortable so I have two at least two stars for that. But I'm annoyed every time I have to struggle to put them on. I think I'm gonna try my luck with a different pair. I gave these to my brother and he says he loves them.
I'm very satisfied with these foods. They look cool are comfortable and water resistant and came at a good price. I really can't complain. I'm recommending these to several of the guys in my unit.
I gave these a three-star rating because I had a couple of complaints. primarily is the noise that's driving me crazy. It sounds like a squeaky panel every time you take a step. I did like the sleek form and comfort of his boot and it was definitely priced right however I can't live with the noise.
These are great training boots and are perfect for light duty or garrison. I'm not sure how well they'll hold up to real heavy use like 20 mile rucks but for my job as in the transportation office, their perfect. they do run a little narrow but other than their pretty comfortable and happy with them.
