When brothers Bill and Mike Brooks founded Rocky Boots back in 1932 it was during a rather tumultuous time: the Great Depression. The Brooks brothers persevered, taking an incredible leap of faith by founding a shoe factory in Ohio. They got it done by borrowing the necessary equipment and finding a space they could use for free, and before long the William Brooks Shoe Company was producing upwards of 2,000 shoes daily. It wasn’t until 1979 that the company became known as Rocky, and today they are renowned for their well-made, durable boots.
These last two years as the AR 670-1 compliance changed, as it tends to do, there was one change not many manufacturers were immediately prepared to fulfill: coyote brown boots. Then there was Rocky. Rocky was ready with their S2V boots.
The S2V lives up to Rocky’s usual high standards for performance, durability, and comfort. And, of course, these boots are AR 670-1 compliant – in coyote brown. When no one else was ready to ship coyote brown compliant boots, Rocky was, and they remain ready with the boots service members need – and like.
From Rocky on their S2V:
The Rocky® S2V Tactical Military Boot is a Coyote Brown military boot that stands up to tough conditions and is comfortable to wear.
This uniform-compliant boot is approved for wear with all applicable Operational Camouflage Pattern variations.
Made of flash-resistant, water-resistant leather and 1,000-denier CORDURA® nylon, this combat boot is PTFE-coated for flame resistance.
Drainage vents with advanced S2V Sieve technology circulate air in and push water out, allowing your feet to dry quickly.
The durable, triple-stitched army boot stays together through wear and tear, and reduces ankle injuries with Roll-Stop Ankle Stability. The stretch LYCRA® tongue hugs your foot for a secure fit.
This boot has a Vibram® sole with proprietary high walls and a polyurethane midsole.
Inside the footwear are features that make this a comfortable boot. The Dri-Lex® lining wicks away moisture. The Rocky® Air-Port™ footbed cushions your foot and has perforations for air flow. An Aegis microbe shield on the footbed helps fight odor and bacteria. The fiberglass shank supports the arch of your foot.
This military boot is made in the USA, so it’s Berry-Compliant.
If you’re looking for a coyote brown military boot that meets your comfort and performance needs, get the Rocky S2V Tactical Military Boot.
