    Extremely comfortable, especially when on foot a great deal! Very light! Don't use the lace hook on the ankle though; it will cut into you.

    Very comfortable, but wear quicker than most boots that I've had.

    I love these boots. I'm on foot patrol all day in the summer and have had been plaged with heal pain. My feet love these boots, only pair were my feet don't hurt. I also own a pair with a Gore-Text waterproof liner that are just a little heavyer but a God send in the rain.

    Ive worn mine for about a year and a half and they are still holding together great. I dont usually use the zipper but the boot is very comfortable even when your on your feet for 8 or 12 hours

    Very light and somewhat durable. The pair I had lasted about a year.

    Bates has always made a comfortable boot, but they will soak your feet in wet grass. The polish up good and are great for long foot patrols on hot pavement. If you need waterproof, tactical, door-kicking boots go with Danner.

    They are light, but too high for me and rub the front of my shins.

    Insoles break down, kill my feet. Going back to my Hi-Tec, or trying the Danner line

    My old duty boots were killing my feet... Major relief from day one with these! Haven't had them long enough to judge their wear and tear, but already racking up the miles!

    I've had these boots for about 6 months. They are wonderful. My feet don't hurt after being on hot blacktop all day long. Even better in the rain, you're feet don't get wet. i recommend them to all my friends and co-workers.
