Thank you for your feedback.
I wanted a pair of boots that I could keep a nice mirror shine on, that were comfortable and were meant to last.
The boots were delivered as expected and I have been pleasantly surprised.
These are some of the best and most comfortable boots I wear while on duty.

    I wear these boots in my duties as a police officer in a Cleveland Suburb. I love these boots for their shine capabilities with some kiwi and their comfort. I buy a new pair every January only because the soles do not last. By the end of twelve months the soles are completely gone and usually have holes in them that trap rocks and dirt. I do not do any extended foot patrol other than the usual building checks, house checks, prisoner checks, etc. The upper portion of the boot holds up well and the height is nice in the winter time. Found these to be the cheapest price on Amazon. Have tried other brands of paratrooper boots but these seem to have the best quality for holding up the longest. Other boots had snaps and zippers that broke.

    I have gone through multiple different types of paratrooper boots in the past and I can honestly say I am sticking with the Bates. For the price, they absolutely cannot be beat! I work at multiple music venues (indoor and out) and put these babies through multiple "shoe harsh" environments (beer, rocks, sand, mud, grease, water, etc) and they hold up! The only complaint that I have is they do take a little bit of time to break in but that's with any boot worth it's salt in regards to durability. Once broken in, they are very comfortable and I prefer my boots over sneakers any day. With other version of paratrooper boots with the sidezip, you will usually have the zipper break at some point. Not with the Bates. Haven't had a zipper break on me once and I am currently on my 6th pair of Bates (each pair lasting between 8 months to a year and a half with no polish at all). If you're a boot lover, for the price, these are highly recommended!

    I've worn combat boots for 25+ years, cheap to high end. Bates makes a damn good boot, a little wide but I always put a good pair of insoles in them after I break them in. I've only had them a month and have used a half a can of mink oil. If you break them in right (no cracked leather) they should last 3 or 4 years. I would definitely recommend. But if you're wanting a nice comfortable pair of hiking boots you should probably look somewhere else. These are military boots, They hurt to breakin! but well worth it. They'll feel like a good pair of house shoes in a few months. These are tough, good looking boots.

    I'm a girl who loves dancing, works security and has crappy ankles!

    I got these boots because I loved the look and wear them out clubbing for HOURS. Not long after I got them I tore a ligament in my ankle. My doctor actually approved them (instead of a stupid medical boot) for the fantastic ankle support! I've never rolled my ankles in these boots. Now I wear them for my security job and they're great. They shine up very nicely. They're tough to break in, but that's to be expected with good all leather boots. The side zip is convenient. They're pretty comfortable but I still use an insole because I have very high arches. They've been durable and I wear them for pretty much everything. The only problem I ran into is one of the side buttons popping open. But I have massive calves so I run into a problem with the fit in that area for most boots.

    *I would caution people who have wider feet, the fit on these seem on the more narrow side.

    I have wanted a pair of all leathers since they made us switch to the brown boots several years ago in the USMC. I have been searching for a pair for over a year now and was not happy with any of the boots I found. I have only had these boots for two weeks but they seem to be exactly what I was looking for. Good comfortable soles, sturdy leather that supports the ankles and the slip on and off that I didn't have with my military issue all leathers. They seem to be breaking in nice and should fit like a sipper in no time at all.

    *Just a note that my purchase of these boots was mainly for style and comfort than for function. So I cannot comment on how they hold up as far as work-wear or day-in-day-out use. I wear them for the looks and the feel.*

    I have searched high and low for great combat/paratrooper style boots, I considered many brands, including Doc Martins and Demonia (a gothic style brand), none of which fit properly or had much in the way of size options. I even went so far as to import some from the UK (Grinders) but these Bates are unparalleled.

    They fit like a charm, but I did have to make sure to measure my feet to get the exact right size. Boot sizing is a tricky thing. The Grinders I bought (Herald model) did not fit due to a mistake on my part in measuring; but regardless, those only come in whole sizes and you cannot choose different widths, similar to the Docs and Demonia boots. So I knew I would not find the right fit anyway since it turns out I wear a wide (EE) and not the 'standard' medium (D) width. So despite liking the look of the Grinders just a bit more than these since they are a dull wax-finished leather (satin black) all over, as well as other small stylistic differences, I can confidently say these Bates are much better overall.

    For one thing, the zipper sides are a HUGE plus, since lacing up boots tall boots like this every time I want to put them on or take them off is a no-go. That could be fine for concerts or going out for the night, but since we take our shoes off in homes here in Canada, forget lacing up 14-hole boots every time you go in or out of someone's place! These are tie once, never again. Love it. They also do look quite nice with the shiny accents on the toe and back; I've come to like it more and more.
