Thank you for your feedback.
These 'fit as expected' due to the limited offering I had; they are about right, size wise, as a 2E (size 11)
The Zipper is tough and looks like it will last the lifetime of the boots (my biggest concern initially).
These boots fit well, straight out of the box and after wearing them for less than a week, they are already broken in.

    First off, I never review products here on Amazon. In fact, I believe this is my first one... However, these boots are hands down the best boot I have ever owned and felt compelled to write a review. As I often spend hours reading reviews trying to pick the right product as online purchases can be difficult, especially when it comes to clothing and footwear. Because of this, I feel that it would be worth sharing my impressions on this product.

    For the first time that I wore these (for about 2 hours), the only issue was that the uppers were rubbing against my legs a bit. However, that was the only discomfort and to be expected from a higher boot on the first wearing. If you are buying these boots, you should be wearing tube socks anyhow. The second and third times that I wore these, the boots were already broken in 90% of the way. After having worn these about 7 times now, I gather that I would be able to wear these on a 5mile trek through the woods without issue already. I bought these to wear while taking my sons on "survival" trips into the woods so they can learn. There is no doubt in my mind they will be perfect for this. They are very rugged like a military boot, yet have the comfort of a hiking boot which is extremely surprising!

    I had been considering the Bates Delta-8 and the Bates GX-8 side-zip boots because they were slightly cheaper. However, the Delta-8 did not have the Gore-Tex so I was worried about water and the GX-8 did not have the ICS option. Additionally, neither had Vibram soles and some reviewers stated that the soles were wearing out after a year or two. All reviews on the Vibram soles that I have read stated that they last a long time.

    First off,

    I am a Correctional Officer, so combat boots can give me the edge I need in an environment that oft times can go to hell and be chaotic. I have used several different types of Combat boots, my last pair was the first Bates brand I had bought and I was sold on them since, they lasted 3 years for the pair that are roughly 80$ I decided this time around to spend a bit more and buy these boots and let me tell you, the cost is well worth it.

    The boot boasts an adjustable heel below the sole of the shoe, adjusting to your comfort etc. I keep it on firm for increased energy return, the grip of the boots has been exceptional as well. I have never reviewed any product I bought off Amazon till now, these boots are well worth the cost. Especially for those in Law Enforcment and the like.

    I'm a military veteran who loves the secure feeling a good pair of boots can offer. So, I wear boots just about every day for nearly everything I do, especially at work and when spending time in the great outdoors. The Delta-9 GTX boots are my second pair of Bates boots. I also own a pair of M-9 Desert boots, which are really nice, but I ordered a half size larger than I should have. Let me talk about the fit of the Delta-9 GTX boots.

    My feet aren't narrow enough for narrow shoes, but finding regular width shoes that fit snug and don't allow my foot to slip is a real pain for me. The Delta-9 GTX boots fit okay, but not great until I added some custom fit orthotic insoles by Dr. Scholls. Now, they hug my feet quite nicely.

    I mentioned earlier that I ordered a half size larger than I should have for my M-9 Desert boots. That's because I ordered the same size I wear for a running shoe. For me, ordering the Delta-9 GTX boots a half size smaller than my running shoe has made all the difference. I found a boot size guide online that helped me determine a better fit. Basically, it said that when tapping the toe of the boot on the floor, your toes should touch the toe of the boot, but not smash into it. So, I tried that with my M-9 Desert boots and found that my toes didn't quite reach the toe of the boot, which explained why my feet didn't love those boots even with orthotic insoles. I guessed that by ordering a half size smaller, they would - and they do in the Delta-9 GTX boots. My feet love these boots.

    Anyone who has had the pleasure of wearing a Gore-tex jacket knows how great the material is for keeping out water, breathability, durability and very little weight. In the Delta-9 GTX boots, it's no different.

    They are the best wearing boots I have found for being on concrete for 12 hours a day, 7 days of the week.

    Theses are the best boots in production water proof, Top shelf soles & zippers..
    JUST BEWARE THAT THE 14 IS ACTUALLY A 15. no joke bought 2 pairs..both floundered in width inside. took new second pair to my podiatrist and he measured the...15 all the way..even though they say 14 and med. or standard width..
    but other wise best boot ever made. Period.
    just adjust size accordingly or by .5 size.

    I've had good luck with Bates boots over the years. This was the first time I bought footwear without trying them on before buying, so I was skeptical and read the reviews, many of which said these boots ran large. I ordered my usual size anyway, and with good boot socks they fit fine. They had a couple of significant pinch-points either side of the lace area over the top of the foot near the ankle bone, so I put sheepskin under my socks in those areas and wore them for several hours over a couple days. I still used the sheepskin on the day I needed the boots for a long day in the field, but after 11 hours of standing, walking and bending, my feet felt fine. If these last as long as previous Bates boots, I'll be very happy. I would recommend them, but buyers need to understand they will probably need breaking in with padding under possible pinch points.
