Great shoe for comfort.
This shoe is just what Bates describes it to be. I did have to contact them to figure out how to set the internal moveable
cushioning disc. Once I got it to my proper position it was great. This is what they refer to as ICS technology. I only wished that all of their shoes had it.

Not satisfied with workmanship
Ordered end of May and received June 1st. Not satisfied with workmanship. After 3 weeks use only at work, 1 shoe squeaks and the other is coming apart at front. Tried to replace via AlumiGogo. Could not replace or return because June 29th last day relative to AlumiGogo anything could be done. On vacation and did not contact AlumiGogo prior to July 15th. Was told to contact Bates directly.

Comfortable right out of the box
I've only been wearing this shoe for about a week now, but so far so good. Very comfortable right out of the box. No break-in time whatsoever.......simply put them on and go. Not sure about the adjustable heel insert.....mine makes a clicking sound on occasion, so this may need to be looked at again. Overall, I think Bates has a winner with this shoe. Time will tell how it stands up to every day wear and tear.

These shoes are comfortable and fit well. The adjustable pad in the heel helps to correct my foot supination (folding out), and it's been hard to find shoes to correct that. There are many shoes available to help with pronation (folding in), and this is the only pair I've found that actively helps supination.

Very comfy fit. True to size. Weird laces.
Purchased from AlumiGogo. These shoes are very well-made and comfortable. I've only worn them for a week so far, in an office environment. Time will tell.
They run very true to size - note that "Extra Wide" is NOT the same as "Wide". I wear a 10EEE - or a 10.5E. I have a very high instep and arch. I ordered these in 10 "Extra Wide", and they fit just right. Kudos for correct sizing.
Con: The only thing short of a 5-star thus far, is they came with 2 different-length laces. The left shoe was provided with a lace 49.5 inches long installed and laced. This is about right; leaves plenty of room for a good know and double if desired. The right shoe was provided with a lace 66 inches long, also installed and laced - yes, 16.5 inches longer, for no reason I can think of. I have to tie off 8" of slack under the bottom eyelets in order to make anything reasonable at the top end. Just weird quality control glitch.

Great product. I purchased these shoes to use at ...
Great product. I purchased these shoes to use at a 5 day trade show where I will be standing on concrete. The show is Las Vegas in July. My review would be of higher value after the event, but the shoes are comfortable...we will see if they hold up as expected in July 2015.

Very comfortable shoes
I just starter wearing this shoes for the last 3 days and I am very surprise 12 3E , the fit and comfort are great on first few days and will purchase again if they continue to be as comfortable, normally I wear Dr. prescribe insole with every shoes and not need with this shoes so far. will update in near future, quality built is to be seen as my first pair was exchange due to some defect.

Purchased for husband who walks on concrete all day. He says these are the best shoes he has worn in years. Has almost eliminated his hip/back and his feet are much happier! Just ordered him a second pair for backups!

It's a solid shoe. It's wide for me, but I have a narrow foot. I broke it in pretty fast by walking a few miles. Overall I'd recommend them.
