Additional Information

more information

The exterior on this Rocky Men's Jump Boot has an adequate amount of durability and ruggedness so that it is able withstand the most unforgiving working conditions. The upper has been built from premium full-grain black leather. These 10-inch duty boots have a side zipper that aids in getting them on/off rapidly. In addition to these features, there is a polishable toe so that you can keep these boots looking like they are in tiptop shape.

A great deal of the paratrooper boot's strength  can be  attributed to its Goodyear welt construction. Eventually, all duty boots begin to wear down; with this construction, these boots can be repaired with no trouble and they'll revert back to their original hardiness.

The contoured EVA footbed provides cushioning that will pacify your achy feet, and will make standing a much more comfortable experience.

You will have more stability as a result of the stabilizer, because it is nonmetallic you will not have to remove your footwear or be delayed around scanners or sensitive equipment. The black rubber lug outsole provides dependable traction; this is especially beneficial when you are walking on uneven terrain.

    • Goodyear® welt construction
    • Full-grain water-resistant leather
    • Contoured EVA insole
    • Rubber Lug Outsole and Non-Metallic Stabilizer
    • Side Zipper for Easy On and Off
    • Polishable toe
    • 10 Inches in height
Rocky Side Zipper Jump Boot is rated 4.3056 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent boot but needs some better snaps I have had 4 pair of these boots in my 18 year career and I really love them but there is room for improvement. Every pair I have had fails in the same place! The snaps that hold the leather flap over the zipper at the top have broken within a year. Either the rivet breaks or the snap comes off of the boot. For a $130 boot, I expect better. As for comfort, they are ok. I put an Arriat Boot Co. insert in them for better comfort and that seems to make them just right for me. I have decided that the expense and repeated failure of the boot in the same area is no longer worth my time and money. Bates has an identical boot for $20 less, I'll give them a shot this time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very unhappy today these boots arrived at my door, i was very excited to get my first pair of paratrooper boots. Well imagine my surprise when i opened my box and found that the snaps, don't even line up at all, the zipper doesn't go far enough down to even get my foot in and out while it's laced (i work ems i need to be able to get them on and off in seconds). They were scuffed up just from taking the plastic bag off them. And there "comfort sole" is non existant. The leather compared to my Alpha force is a cheap knock off. I'm very unhappy with these boots as I had so much higher expectations from rocky, a company where I've been doing business for years with. I think it's time to switch to bates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be patient After the first couple days I was getting bummed that I had spent a lot if money on boots I couldn't wear. They felt big and clunky, stiff, and killed my inner ankle bones. I stopped wearing them for a week and let my ankles heal\toughen up. I wasn't gonna give in easy so I put them back on but looser. Over the next week I tightened them lil by lil and put in a quality insole. Now, I wouldn't take any other boot in this style. They are not ready to wear outa the box for the weak willed. You just gotta be tougher than they are....I would, however, feel a lil better if the zippers weren't plastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible The boot looks great. That's about it. The zipper sticks frequently. And the boot is the most uncomfortable boot I've ever worn. I've been wearing Rocky's for years on duty. I will NEVER buy this boot again. Been wearing it for 3 months waiting for it to break in and it hasn't. I have to wrap my feet behind the heel to avoid blisters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loyal customer left disappointed... I have been buying boots from Rocky since 2009 and have been completely satisfied until now. I serve on the tactical squad in the Illinois D.O.C. and purchased these boot a little over a year and a half ago. They arrived in great condition and I have had nothing to complain about until today. We were going through situational drills when the heel cap on my left boot tore. It didn't blow out the seam or come unstitched, the leather tore just below the seam in about a 2-3" tear! I was stunned! I bought these boots off of the recommendations of some of my fellow officers who love them. I have never so much as broken a lace on a pair of Rocky's before and I am very disappointed with this pair of boots. I am just glad it happened during drills and not the real thing. These boots are OK if you are just using them for walking around in or in a patrol setting, but I cannot recommend them for any heavier applications. I will not be buying any more duty boots from Rocky.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Older Paratrooper velcro were way better I had the older....when I say older I mean around 2009 with the Velcro connections at the top of the zipper. Those Rocky's were awesome and I have no complaints on those. I purchased a new pair in 2013 and I still wear them to this day. I work in Corrections and I'm walking 13 hours a day. Well, the newer ones wreck havoc just above my heel. These boots have made blue calluses the size of golf balls behind my ankle. I can't wear flip flops in public because of the damage these boots have done to my skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far they equal my old jump boots, if not better I loved my old jump boots and had them for several years (They were Corcoran's, The original jump boot), but due to a med I take, my feet grew and they no longer fit (Went from 11.5W to 12.5W/13 at 40 years old). Pro 1: They have the look I want, the "Jump Boot, Military Look", black boots with the toe cap and the zipper on the side. Pro 2: They have replaceable, stitched on soles (I HATE boots with a "welded or glued" on soles). This was one requirement I had for any boot I was looking at. A shoe store in my town will replace the soles for $80, and the boots will be good as new again. (All ready broke in boots with new soles are great) Pro 3: Polishable leather, and they are breaking in better than I thought for new boots. Pro 4: Plastic zipper that wont loose its color, my old pair's zipper are metal and worn showing the metal. Pro 5: Their price. They were more in the range I wanted to spend. Getting another pair of Corcorans were out of the range I wanted to spend on a pair of boots, also I wanted to try a different manufacture. Con 1: After 12 there were no half sizes, so I went with a 13, which is a little big on me, but with a second pair of thinner socks, they fits just as good as my other pair did, and no blister yet. Con 2: The laces that come with them are "plastic" and cheap feeling and when you tighten them, they wont stay in place. (Used my old boots laces, which work perfect) Con 3: They have a zipper cover on top of boots, they have two snaps, both have one snap that does not lined up properly, but I can replace/move it myself down the road, It does not affect the boots use, just a little annoying. Over all, I really like them. They have the look, feel, and the style I want. Plus my main requirement for a pair of boots was them to have a stitched on sole. I can deal with the Cons I listed. I'm pretty sure I will have these boots for a very long time, with normal care and maintenance. (I kinda wish I got the waterproof ones)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tough boot I have had several of these boots and will admit they are a tough boot to break in, wear and get comfortable, no question about it. Not for the 'weak willed.' A lot of saddle soap and wearing around the house and light walks to get comfortable. At first my snaps kept 'popping' but as I wore them more, and the leather stretched, they stopped popping. I use a heavy duty Dr Scholl's insert and that helps to make wearing much more comfortable. Out of the 'box' they are not comfortable at ALL, but like I said, with some time and care, they break in and are extremely worth the price. They come 'big' and at first you may feel you bought the wrong size, but as they 'wear' they tighten up and fit right, just give it some time, some saddle soap, and a few 'sore feet' walks and you will be ready for 'war.'
