Bates Code 6 Boot Review

These boots are the lightest weight work boot I have worn to date. I am a correctional officer so I am on my feet a lot and wanted a comfortable, but yet light weight boot and the Bates Code 6 Boot fit the bill on both accounts. They fit true to size and are comfortable. I would not recommend them in wet weather like snow and in cold weather say below freezing, but that not what they are designed for.

I really like these boots. They are light, durable and comfortable. I work in a kitchen and the slip-resistance is very good. I also ride a dual sport motorcycle to and from work and the plastic peice on the bottom (intended for extra support I believe) also protects the boot from being damaged by the foot pegs. I purchased a pair of Bates Code 6  boots from and ordered an 11. I went by the Amazon size chart (which suggested a size 12) and got an 11.5. It fits fine but I probably could have stuck with the 11.


Overall, the Bates Code 6 Boot is a dependable and versatile choice for those who need high-quality footwear for duty and tactical operations.
