If anyone is personally thinking of those boots and are on the fence. They are fantastic boots. Best purchase I ever bought were my Delta 8inch ICS goretex ones. They are durable as hell, the most comfortable boot, and even more comfortable than my skate shoes, or running shoes with Dr Scholes inserts. I wear mine for 8-16 hour days, no custom inserts, no added arch support. They breath, water proof, and keep my feet warm that its not sweating. I bought mine basically for paintball only, but have been using them for the past 8 months daily. Did i mention how light these are? about the same as my Running shoes.
Bates boots are hard to get in Canada.
bump for a fellow owner man... Why are you selling the boots btw?
I got them in a "in the moment" purchase. Since I am not using them for paintball (my SWAT boots are still holding up well), and the Canadian Military won't allow me to wear them (uniform here is black), I figured I'd give them a good home.
