Additional Information

This Rocky Outback's upper was assembled with premium full-grain leather; while it is certainly very soft, the material has great durability and strength. Having a lace-up design on this outdoor boot is fantastic, because it allows you to adjust the fit. This boot has a fully padded collar and tongue  to help keep out debris. After all, no one wants to walk around with rocks and dirt rolling around in their boots while they are trying to enjoy their experience outdoors.

GORE-TEX® fabric has been added into the design of this footwear; having it ensures that these 9 " outdoor boots will remain durably waterproof, breathable and windproof.

To enhance your level of comfort within these #8729 boots, a Rocky Air-Port footbed has been inserted. This polyurethane insert helps cushion your steps and aids in absorbing shock.

Are you hesitant about the boot's grip? Don't be... the Outback rubber outsole provides fantastic traction and allows your footing to be steady when you're walking on rugged terrain.

Whether you're headed for the hills or going to work, this rugged and good-looking Rocky Outback GORE-TEX® Outdoor Boot (#8729) with moc-toe styling will keep you dry and comfortable.

    Rocky Outback GORE-TEX® Waterproof Boot is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever, will be buying my 4th pair. I have had lots of boots and none compare to this boot for "all purpose use"*. they are awesome for casual walking, hiking, back-packing and even work (not recommended if you need foot protection). Light weight, great ankle and foot support while allowing your feet to spread while walking as they normally should. They are incredibly comfortable! The only complaint I have is that they consistently, for me anyway, wear and tear at the stitching where the ball of the feet ends and the toes begin. It separates and loses the waterproofing where the sole meets the leather. I wonder if this could be fixed by extending the leather a little further? I haven't taken the time to dissect the boot once they are trashed(; And of course this is after pretty hard use with construction and backpacking, puddle and stream jumping, etc. over an average of 2- 3 years of use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ouch I've had these boots for a couple months now and yes they comfortable to walk around in on flat surfaces. now for the bad news, if you have to put anytime in on a shovel or rocky ground like we have here in mn you will not like these boots. the soles are way too soft, you'll feel every rock under your foot and the shank in the arch is nonexistent. I think they're a decent boot, rocky just shouldn't advertise them as work boots...would I recommend them for work...nope..hunting boots maybe

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for work or casual. Have use Rocky products many times and the most comfortable was the old Safari. The Outback is basically the same boot with moccasin design. Light weight and comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated Review I originally left a two star review because the boots did not last quite a year. Rooky Boots were great because the sent me an email and notified me that I have a year warranty on manufacturer defects. I sent the my old boots to them and within a week I had a brand new pair of boots. Now I give them 5 stars for their excellent customer service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boots! I bought these about 2-3 years ago don't quite remember its been a while, but I have got to say these boots are incredible! Right out of the box they fit perfectly didn't even have to wear them in. Extremely comfortable and light weight which is a huge plus. Love the grips on these boots have hardly ever slipped or lost traction while wearing these boots. I use these boots for work (ranch work), hunting, and play. No matter what situation I'm in these boots seem to handle it. Sadly, however, I do believe they have run their course and it is time for an upgrade. Looking to either purchase the exact same ones or might try my luck with another Rocky boot style. These boots are great, but I do have to mention that after the time that I have had them and have really put these boots through the gauntlet that they do lose their waterproof capabilities when the stitching at the seems start to go. However, seeing that I have had these for such a long time I still believe that these boots merit a 5 star rating. Absolutely recommend these to anyone looking for a very comfortable light weight and waterproof boot whether you're using them for work, hiking, hunting, or whatever else these boots can most certainly handle it.
