A good all around boot,
This review is from: Bates Men's GX-8 GTX Side Zip Military Boot (Shoes)
Never owned a side zip boot until now. Mine were issued through work. Given the price in Canada, I probably would buy a Danner, Corcoran or Matterhorn but these are comfy and keep my feet warm and dry. I gotta admit, the side zip is very convenient. They are light and feel almost like wearing sneakers. Don't imagine I'll get years of wear out of them though.
