Do not Buy!...
By: Matthew
These shoes have a shelf life and then they completely fall apart like they are made of sand that has been glued together. I wish I could write more or post pics. I wore them approximately 5 times during the 2 years I owned them and the last time I wore them they crumbled off of my feet. I know it sounds hard to believe. I wish I could post photographs on here.

These shoes look nice...
By: Ragnar Benson
Bates High Gloss Oxford shoes 1301. I'll start out by saying you only wear high gloss shoes in very formal situations and these shoes fit that role perfectly. I found myself in need of a formal outfit for a formal work function and I needed to buy a suit and shoes to fit the dress code. I found out that Bates made formal shoes and instantly bought the shoes because I highly trust the brand. These shoes are very comfortable so I got be comfortable and look great all night the best of both worlds. I received compliments out the wazoo the whole night. Great pair of formal shoes and I will buy again if these ever fail.

Fall apart - avoid...
By: Upset
Had a pair for three years. Hours before a military ball the soles got sticky and then crumbled into powder. Left a mess of black chunks everywhere. Google "Bates Crumbling Soles" if you doubt me. Aparently the "Bates Blow-out" is a thing.

Love the soles...
By: rstevens
The shoes have really exceeded my expectations and for the price I am glad. I would say that I expect to get a solid one year of everyday wear out of them and then I will be happy. The soles are very relaxing and almost feel like my high end tennis shoes. I would recommend a good pair of inserts and you should be fine.

6 months max...
By: azcbpk9
I have been wearing low quarters for too many years now and trying something out of the norm isn't my thing but being bates I figured they would be great. The shoes held up well and looked great and always had a high shine and were easy to clean. I usually swap out my shoes at six months and these were s stretch to get to my 6 month mark. Great short term shoes.
