I've had two pairs of these Bates boots before. My first pair was retired for water leakage. The current pair is being retired for tread wear. Its reasonable to expect 2-3 years from them. Not too bad for being worn at least 40hrs/week 51 weeks a year. I do commercial refrigeration repair and sometimes a roof will sag under the weight of a large unit. This means there might be several inches of water around where I have to work. They are waterproof even when standing in water for some time. You WANT waterproof! The side zipper is a must-have for being quick when you're late for work. You WANT the side zipper! The Vibram soles are very durable and can handle greasy kitchen floors. It outperforms everything else I've tried. You WANT Vibram! Lastly, don't buy insulated boots if plan to use them year-round and, at this price, I do. Loosen the laces and add layers of socks in the winter. You DON'T WANT insulation! If you want boots that perform in any situation yet are comfortable, you WANT these boots!
