Bates Shoes: Uniform Core Oxford Shoes 968

A great formal shoe isn't all about style. Just like a work boot, construction is key, and the Bates 968 Men's Black Leather Uniform Core Product Oxford Shoe is a prime example of an expertly made shoe. This is a shoe with both style and substance. What more could you want?

The primary objective of formal wear may be to look great, but there's no sense in making impractical shoes. After all, there's no telling how long that meeting, installation, or even wedding reception is going to last. That is why leather uppers are manufactured with a sharp and durable design. These uppers also resist the everyday wear and tear of the worksite. In addition these shoes are crafted Goodyear welt construction which makes this footwear exceptionally tough and sturdy. This construction also means you can have the soles replaced when they wear out extending these boots life expectancy.

The diamond outsole features a solid but stylish nailed heel. Also, the outsole is oil-resistant, non-marking and non-slip, which makes them perfect for safely walking in countless environments, even a worksite. It also gives you and your family peace of mind knowing this footwear is working to keep you safe. Last, but not least, these shoes are equipped with a breathable lining and removable full-cushioned insole that will keep you comfortable and cool all day long.

You deserve footwear that is built with quality and strength. With a pair of Bates 968 Men's Black Leather Uniform Core Product Oxford Shoes, you'll get the fit and comfort with maximum style. Go ahead and order your pair online today from the Working Person’s Store.

This will be the first time that I...
By:
This will be the first time that I have ever reviewed a product. But Bates 968 Men's black leather oxford shoes deserve my attention. Finally, I have found a shoe that is durable, comfortable, and fashionable, all at the same time. I am a photographer who walks a lot through city streets. Whereas the soles of most shoes will wear out in 6 months, I wore my last pair of Bates 968 Oxford shoes with hypalon soles for one and half years, the longest I have worn any shoe! They are exactly like the ad from the company says, long wearing, non slipping, non marking,and comfortable. I think part of this is due to the quality of the materials and part is due to the thought that went into the design of this shoe. If you're like me and you walk a lot on hard cement sidewalks, you should do your feet a favor and buy yourself a pair of these shoes. I like them so much I recently bought three pairs!

Comfortable all day long!...
By:
I'm on my feet 11-12 hours a day, and these shoes are the most comfortable of this type I've ever worn. Prior to the 968s, I used to wear shoes made of Poromeric material, or patent leather, and, over time, eventually developed sore and achy feet halfway through the day. I couldn't wait to get home and change out of them. With the 968s, though, my feet never felt better. Maintenance is so much better, too, as the leather upper is easily cleaned, polished, and repaired, if necessary. I like them so much that I now have 5-pairs, rotating and wearing a different one each day.

Least of my favorites...
By:
I have been wearing BATES boots and oxfords since 1993 for both my Military career and Law enforcement career. I will admit that these are my least favorite pair of oxfords that they make. They do feel great but I don't like the fact that they are high maintenance and require a good amount of time to maintain a high polish.

Very reliable shoe...
By:
These are a very reliable shoe from Bates and will last longer then your staff assignment will. The prices is affordable for what you get but they do take a little elbow grease to get a good polish on them but once you do get a shine it will last for awhile. So far one year in and very pleased with them.

Comfortable & Durable...
By:
So far, so good! These shoes fit great, are comfortable, and appear to be very durable. I like them so much, I have three pairs I rotate through during the week. My job requires me to wear a uniform 4-days a week, so, I'm looking to add another pair. I used to wear the poromeric type shoes, rotating them this way, and they lasted 5-years before the leather soles wore through and the patent leather uppers eventually began to crack. With real leather, I suspect I will get more than 5-years wear and tear.

Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!

I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company. I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning. This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North. Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped. Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
