These are close to the ultimate lightweight Army boots. For the POG REMF Fobbit in ACUs, they're tough to beat. The Rockys weight about the same as a pair of New Balance Army running shoes, and might even be more comfortable. Why these boots are named after the standard military explosive compound C4 is a mystery, but they won't blow up your feet like a set of heavy leather Danners or Bellevilles will. These boots have a nice wide, soft rubber sole that is perfect for patrolling the linoleum hallways of any 2-Star command... the soles are very quiet, so nobody will hear you when you're sneaking out of the building and heading home at 1400 to catch the game... also good for coming up quietly behind the 1SG and getting him to spill his coffee. I bought the Wide size, and after serving in 5 Infantry Battalions, there's enough room for the orthotics to keep my broken feet relatively happy throughout the duty day. The wide, flat, soft sole is great for the open hallways and drill...
I'm on my fourth pair of these, so I figure I should provide some feedback. I'm very pleased with this boot for light to medium duty tasks to include heavy rucking. They've held up much better than I expected, typically getting around 1.5 yrs/pair of daily use (I consider them worn out when the tread is almost gone. You could wear them much longer for light duty use). Never had an issue with them falling apart other than an eyelet pulling out after alot of use. The sole of the boot is made out of a softer rubber than most boots, which really helps cushion the feet. The insole isn't bad, either. I have never broken a lace and they stay put, so not much more to ask there.
Where they have problems: - Snow/ice. Not much traction here. - Slick/smooth rock. Again, not much traffic. - Extremely rugged/unimproved trails consisting of large diameter pebbles (you can feel it through the boot just enough to be uncomfortable if you step wrong) - Areas with...
Comfortable boot. It fit about a half size to small. I normally wear a 13 in Nike's which is what this boot reminds me of, a boot version of my nike free running shoes. Lightweight, nice boot to wear after rugged ruck marches. Not something I would wear in a field or construction environment. Not durable.
