Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good price for money The Bates DuraShocks Desert Hot Weather Boots is for my personal use. I am a retired military from the USAF. Two years ago I bought a Marine Corp Desert Boot and made a comparison. This new boot is slightly different. It is lighter than the Marine boot and fits comfortable.Pretty much the same as the other boot I own.. I like it because it is breathable. Since, Bates products deal with the military. The name stands by itself. I recommend this boot to other people and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots for the price Ordering boots online is always hit or miss due to fit. I am glad I ordered as these are a hit. The size runs as I expected and are very comfortable. These boots are name brand made in USA quality for the price of imported knock offs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy very cushiony haven't worn them yet except to try on. the shock cushioning effect very apparent. love the feel of these boots. obvious quality durable build only two drawbacks. for regular width they are very wide, guess they can double for winter boot with 3 pairs of wool socks that it will easily acommodate they are definitely more of a 9.5W than the 9.5M that it says. also there is not one made in the usa tag or sticker or imprint anywhere on the boot or box or brochures/swag. all it says anywhere is the bates is a global company. hmmmmmm?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Boots Great price, ordered one half size down as noted by other reviews. They are different than my older bates, heel/ sole is harder, but they had to do this as the older split/ cracked. The fit is nice, material is good, so you can't go wrong,

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 good for the price great boots wish i had these when i was down range, but they are possibly the most comfortable boot i own.

I&apos;m buying a pair, reg or not, because $63 is a great price point for a boot I wore daily for a solid year overseas, without issue. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: Romeo227</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-11-10</div> </div> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-questionsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-questionsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-questions--><ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">2015-03-27T19:38CST</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_cps, prod_bvqa, vn_cps_3.1.1</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasquestionsanswers, tq_4</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_612109, PRD, sort_recentAnswersFirst</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_sportmansguide</li></ul><!--end-bvseo-questions--><!--BVSEO|dz:Main_Site-en_US|sdk:v1.0.7.0-n|msg:timer 62ms -->
