You’re proudly serving your country in the U.S. Army. Hooah! If you have been looking for an ACU (Army Combat Uniform) approved boot that is also Berry Compliant (all components are made in the USA), then you should be wearing a pair of these Rocky Basics Steel Toe Hot Weather Military Boots (style #6826).
Are you wondering where this boot can be worn? This unlined, hot weather boot is approved for both training and combat. The upper of this boot is constructed with a combination of suede leather and 1000 denier Cordura® nylon panels. The vamp, quarter and eyestay all have been created using heavy weight split cowhide (1.8 – 2.0 mm), and have a non-woven backing in the vamp and quarter. This backing provides added strength and moisture absorption.
The tongue and panels have been made with 1000 denier Cordura® nylon. This is because it is an exceptionally strong fabric, which is extremely difficult to tear. Even though the laces are non-wicking, they are made to be abrasion-resistant. The tongue, on the Rocky #6826 boot, is fully gusseted to block dirt and debris out of the boot. There’s also a full, foam-padded collar, which is there to provide you with a level of comfort.
This Rocky Basics #6826 boot offers incredible protection for your feet. The steel protective toe cap is certified to ASTM F2413-11 I/75 C/75 for the highest levels of Impact, Compression and EH (Electrical Hazard) protection.
But wait, there’s more! Underneath your foot is a full, removable polyurethane Pro-Cell footbed, with an additional ½” thick energy-return plug in the heel, and an AEGIS Microbe Shield in the footbed cover. This AEGIS protection will not wear off. It is great for warding off bacteria, and preventing odor.
All this is mounted on a shock-absorbing, lightweight, flexible direct attached PU midsole. The midsole will provide your feet with cushion and keep them stable. This particular Rocky Basics boot features an extra-long, abrasion-resistant flocked inside counter pocket to hold your heel in place. The fiberglass shank will offer rear and mid-foot stability and torsion control. The outsole is an abrasion-resistant, multi-terrain, dual-density, genuine Vibram® 360° with gripping 6mm self-cleaning lugs and ladder-gripping shank treads.
The Rocky Basics Steel Toe Hot Weather Military Boot is anything but “basic.” It is made from the highest quality materials in the United States and protects your feet by offering exceptional safety features.
