Bates 8 DuraShocks Desert Hot Weather Boots, Desert Tan is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment Plus. After spending over 34 years of U.S. Army Active and Reserve service, in the Infantry and Field Artillery, I have been privileged to wear a great variety of combat boots. I am currently wearing Marine issue Bates 8" boots 50501 in 9M. They are the best boot I ever wore, so was thrilled to find a Bates 8" boot in 9M. These boots fit like a 9N and have a bad seam on the outside of the arch. I can not wear them. The sole is stiff. It is like walking with my feet strapped to bricks. I returned them and wont' be ordering more Bates boots unless I can try them on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from off quality, 2nds rejects from Bates Made in USA sold me, I orderd 2 sizes, neither one fit like my last 4 pair of pates work boots. They run a little big, and leather on the heel was off center where you can see a stitch, normally below the sole of boot. get what you pay for, $130 boots for less than half, well they are not going to fit all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fair deal this replaces a pair I purchased a year or two ago. they were magnums. gotem here. the bates are cumfy, and supportive. I think they may be seconds, bates co. is very picky, so it is minor details does not affect wearability.i wear them around town a bit then I run an gun hard. I think they will hold up well.if they keep the price rite you can not go wrong. boot size is correct. plenty of toe box room. get;em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy for the price! I tried these on the second they delivered and feels very comfortable. I walked around in them for a while and did some running, no complaints. Excellent grip on the bottom as well. Great quality too. For the $, I recommend ordering a pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots These Bates boots are GREAT, especially down here in hot Florida. Light weight and cool and very comfy. Sizes run about 1/2 size large. I liked them so much I bought a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot. I wore this boot for a year overseas, with no wear out. At $63, it's a steal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I ordered a pair of Bates RAT Boots from the Sportsmansguide, several years ago and still loved them. Since that time I have tried to order another pair(15W). But have had no luck finding any in my size until now. This pair looks, feels, and wears like my first pair altho these are not "RAT" BOOTS, the only difference I can find is the lack of the millitary insiga on the side of each boot. Bates makes a very good boot. I'm HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!
