I work outdoors in construction and the temps can get up to 120 degrees during the day. This is one of most breatheable boots I've worn. 80% of the boot is pretty much mesh. The toe in this boot isn't steel but feels tough like to take some abuse. My only complaint and this is a minor thing is the zipper flap which covers the zipper but its just a different design. Overall. Excellent boot.
They don't last and stretch out fast. Poor foot support.
I work for the Dept of Corrections. I've had these boots for about a week and I like them. Good cushioning and still comfortable after a long 10-12 hour shift. They run true to size.
Lightweight compared to other Bates models I've owned in the past. Solid boot. The honeycomb pattern adds structure and strengthens the boot while keeping it light. Cool.
