Bates® GORE-TEX® Side-Zip 8'' Waterproof Work Boots for Men
I have been a cop for 2 years now and I purchased these boots at the same time. These boots are extremely lite. I'm constantly on my feet and They fell like tennis shoes. Recently I attended the West Virginia state police academy for 4 months and the boots went with me. They stood up to the foot pursuits, numberous fights, they been completely submerged in water and the punishment from the academy and a few other thing . after 2 yrs the tread is the only thing finally starting to wearout but they are still water proof. I only wish they came in camo and more insulated so I could wear them hunting. if your looking for a boot for work or play these are them.

Great Product for work or Play
I have 2 pairs of these fine boots, 1 is my daily use pair as a full-time EMT, the other I use as a hunting/fishing boot. Light weight comfortable and extremely warm and dry. I have stood in flooded bar ditches in the rain and my feet were the only thing dry at the end of the day. Great boot, when these wear out I will purchase 2 more pairs
