    By George on September 16, 2012
    Had these boots for 8 months now and I LOVE them!! They may be the best looking lace up boots I've come across (they get lots of compliments). Bates has an excellent reputation for making great quality military/combat type boots. I thought that was all they made, so when I came across these riding boots I was surprised.

    I ride a lot and am not easy on my boots. Here are some points i'd like to touch on.

    1. The leather is very good quality and the overall boot is very well made. Condition them with some Leather Honey, or another leather conditioner and the leather will thank you. I see these boots lasting for many years. (Note; some leather conditioners will eat away at stitching. Leather Honey won't. And no I do not work for them. I just love their product)

    2. No problems with the side zipper. It works well and zips down far enough where it's easy on/easy off. I haven't had to untie the laces since day one.

    3. Very good lug sole, great traction when I'm riding and need to plant my feet on wet pavement or even gravel. I believe the heel is 1.75" high. Most of what's considered high in other boots are 1.5". So, if you're on a shorter side, like me, you may appreciate the extra height, which allows me to get more flat footed while on my bike.

    4. The boot is very comfortable for me. There may be lighter boots out there, but this boot certainly isn't heavy. I'd say somewhere in the middle. I've had them on from morning til evening, and did plenty of walking, with no complaints.

    5. SIZING: I usually wear a 10.5 so that is what I ordered. However, when I tried them on it seemed I had just a tiny bit more room than I like.

    Bought these to replace another brand zippered engineer boots which I had to fight like crazy to get on and off. I must have unusually high arches because lots of side-zippered boots give me the similar trouble. This model has 2 advantages - the zipper comes low enough to get on easy - and they are actually COMFORTABLE to wear for extended periods, like all day. In spite of being a stiff, heavy boot (which is desireable for protection) they don't kill my feet to walk around in....in fact I have them on now and will wear all day, again. They're always going to be a clunky boot, that's their function, but they fit well with no pinching and that's a treat. If I know it's going to be a lot of walking involved I'll bring other shoes in my saddlebags for that, but wear these while riding for the protection and handsome good looks.

    Bonus - I did not realize till I was taking a flash picture of my floorboards that the side piping on these boots is reflective for nightime visibility. The flash lit it up. I'll post a picture if it lets me. Bottom line, nice boots. Bates = good company.

    I was in the market for a pair of new boots, and I particularly was looking for a bigger heel (loggers) and was attracted to the buckle over the arch. I'm not a biker, but I love these.

    For those that aren't accustomed to a larger heel, these may feel a bit awkward at first. Some complain about the height, but they aren't any higher (if not smaller) than your typical cowboy boots. I've been wearing them for long periods with lots of walking and haven't felt any discomfort once broken in. They are very stiff at first, which may cause a bit of discomfort but that will go away. For me, they are very comfortable. Just be sure you get the proper size, slightly too big and your foot will slip about all over the place.

    The leather is very good and the stitching superb. However, you MUST use some kind of leather conditioner on a regular basis to avoid cracking- as the leather will begin to wrinkle at the toe from bending (as with any leather boot).

    I really love these, unfortunately, they aren't without a few niggles. The pair that I got, the left boot feels like it's curved along the outer left side than it is on the right boot, causing my pinkie toe to rub against the inside of the boot. No problems with the right boot however. The zippers are very strong, and make putting them on and off less of a hassle. However, they sometimes get a bit stuck if they aren't perfectly straight and aligned. Apart from a bit of stiffness, which I hope will start to flex more with time, and a few wrinkles from bending, I have no other complaints.

    I would recommend them.

    Bates also makes military boots, need I say more. Very sturdy boot for holding up my cruiser. Hard soles are a must for stability, but rough on the feet if you wear them during your workday also. Invest in some insoles and you'll thank me. Work pants to NOT ride up higher than the boot. Zippered for easy off/on. No complaints. Recommend
