I work for the DOC and a POSC Instructor. I was prior law enforcement, so I've tried lots of brand/styles. I was getting blisters, sore, and sweaty with the gym shoes since I thought that'd be the way to go. I was originally going to purchase the Under Armour Women's Valsetz Stealth Duty Boots, but my husband who has UA boots talked me out of it saying they don't last long. I'm so glad he did!! I wore these for the first week over 8 hours each day on regular duty to break in. Let's just say they took less than 2 hours to break in! They were so comfortable I didn't want to take them off. I had POSC, doing mat work, strikes, pivots, and so forth. A few other instructors bought the UA boots and said they didn't last long. Sure enough, their foot was pushng against the wall and offered no support. I got a lot of compliments about these boots. They look professional and you can shine them to look sharp in front of students/ management. They gave me everything I wanted and more: Comfort, Durability, Support, and Professional. Look no further for fantastic boots!! You can't beat the quality Bates gives you. Spend a little more and get boots your feet will thank you for. Thank you Bates!

I wear these boots to help stabilize my ankles. Prior to purchasing my first pair 3 years ago I rolled my ankle 3 x in six months and the last time almost broke it. These shoes are great for everyday wear and for when I go hiking on the weekends. Buy high socks when you purchase these to protect your leg around the shoe opening otherwise you will get sores while breaking them in. They also do take a good month to fully break in but once done they are very comfortable. If not used to wearing this kind of boot it'll take a little bit to get used to the weight of them. Mine tend to last about a year of daily use before they wear out. Buying two pairs and alternating would probably extend the life. Over all the best boots I've found.

I bought my wife a pair because I love mine. She has small feet and could not find size locally. I ride motorcycle and they are very stable and waterproof. Laces can be fastened with velcro tab at top of zipper. We also plan to use them for CERT use and we also belong to a sheriff's alumni assoc. They have a very positive track with lots of support. Very comfortable for lots of walking, running, and hours on our feet.

Love these boots, very comfortable. I work in a shop, I am on my feet all day on concrete, everything else I tried hurt my feet with in a month. These are holding up very well and so comfortable. I am looking to by a 2nd pair to wear as casual.
