Interesting story about these boots. They are actually more like a surivival tool inside a high-performance sneaker, all wrapped up in the wolf's clothing of a boot. A few years back, Rocky Boots - known to be an industry leader in outdoor boots for over 70 years - embarked on a project to make the ultimate footwear for high-performance and athletic wear: Rocky’s Extreme S2V series. They overbuilt the hell out of it, packing it with features and using uber-premium materials. As a result the boots were priced high. Deservedly so. Like a Ferrari, some consumers appreciated how legit these boots were. But unlike Ferraris, in the shoe business you've got to sell a ton of volume to make it viable. Due to the price tag, sales volume fell short. Field Supply steps in, snatches up a huge load of them and we're passing the savings on to you.
Whether for trail running and extreme sports, or if you just want the ultimate in survival boots, get yourself into a pair of these bad boys. You'll never regret owning the best.
A few key features:
Insoles contain two fire sparkers and two wet cubes built in. These survival tools allow you overcome a huge wilderness challenge: building a fire in wet conditions.
Each pair comes with the Rocky S2V Survival Grenade, a supremely handy and compact survival tool that clips on your person. It includes 10' mil-grade paracord, fire starter, tinder, needle, knife blade, 2 fish hooks, 2 swivels, 2 weights, tin foil, and water. This S2V Survival Grenade is worth 20 bucks alone.
It features a fuchsia footbed. Fuchsia is important because it can easily be spotted in nature. If you're lost or in distress in the wilderness, you can remove this fuchsia footbed and wave it or otherwise display it in order to signal that you need help or signal to search and rescue personnel looking for you.
It works well with snowshoes and crampons.
TPU stability shank for support. Ripstop nylon to prevent tears. High-abrasion, half-gusseted TPU overlays provide comfort and durability. Molded foam padding. Rubber enhanced toe wraps and extended back guards help these extreme shoes resist scuffs on or off the trail, and extends their life. Outsoles feature a Vibram compression molded trek rubber compound.
Rocky's watertight HydroIQ structure keeps moisture from seeping through the fabric yet still offers optimum breathability. Aerotherm zoned thermal nanotechnology insulation provides protection from extreme temps.
Lightweight, flexible EVA midsoles. Anti-microbial open-cell foam with perforated forefront vents to let air circulate. Moisture-wicking linings help guard against sweating. Polyurethane flat lay collars assure ankle grip to keep the shoe in place and preventing slippage. Comfortable and dry. The polyurethane outsoles are direct attached for superior longevity and a permanent bond.
Topped off with military-grade 550 paracord boot laces. These quick-drying nylon laces have a minimum 550-pound breaking strength and hundreds of survival applications, including fishing line, sewing thread, building shelter and starting fires.
