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 Terra Suspension 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 Hiker Boot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good boots, bad insoles I haven't really worn these boots a lot, but I have taken a few hikes with them. I bought them primary for bird hunting in the fall. The boots are light weight and seem well made. After my first short hike though I noticed that the insoles are terrible. They are too think by the arch and cause the arch to dig in with discomfort. I had to replace them and with the new insoles, they are very comfortable. Rocky should immediately replace the insoles on all these boots as they are very poorly made. I will not buy another Rocky boot until I see that they take this action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot. Great boot for the outdoors or walking around town. I am personally a fan of 8" boots vs 6" boots. The tread allows for great stability on uneven terrain. I walk in very rocky terrain for work and the boots are ideal for this in cold weather. I am still breaking them in but being prior military these boots are still comfortable during this break in period compared to military boots. I highly recommend them. I hope Rocky comes out with a pair just like these without Gore-Tex for the summer months! And the thing I look for the most in reviews is sizing: I wear an 11 in almost all brands. I ordered an 11 and these run about 1/2 a size larger but it's perfect for a thick pair of socks.

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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! I bought these boots back in the spring as a replacement for my beat down Salomon hiking boots. These are warmer for sure, the height is going to do that, but they are rugged and the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. The break in was a little rough around some of the seams but if a boot is going to stand the test of time then they shouldn't break in in a day. They are still rocking after a summer of Rocky Mountain Hiking on the Continental Divide. I look forward to seeing what they can do in the winter. I am considering just buying 3 more pairs of these so that I know I have the next few replacements covered. The discontinuation of this model is not something I am pleased about.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made They last about 1 year of light use. The stitching where the sole meets the leather rots and comes loose (2 pairs now). I use my boots for walking, no work, hunting, or rock climbing. I inspect construction sites. I love the comfort but, for $150 and the Rocky name, I expect them to last much longer. I will buy another pair and at 9 months, I will inspect closely the area where the sole meets the leather. Any signs of a problem, I will return them for another pair. I own 4 pairs of Rocky boots and 3 would rate 5 stars, but not this boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice soft but sturdy leather I have only had the boots about a month. They have been very comfortable so far. I have only walked about 3 miles in them at one time, so I still have an all day walk ahead. Although they have GoreTex, which is great, the leather is very water absorbent, so I sprayed them with Rustoleum Never wet. Now the leather doesn't even get wet. So far I would highly recommend the Never Wet. Wet leather is cold leather. I highly recommend this boot. I had a pair of Rocky Safari's for many, many many years. I am very happy with these boots and the service from Rocky. The free shipping time does suck, however.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted money I could'nt wait and bought a pair on the Internet. When they arrived I was immediately impressed: light weight, great looking leather and construction, flexible soles with a semi agressive tread, nice lacing system, relatively easy to get on or off. Then I did an initial short three mile hike to break them in.Big mistake! When I returned home I discovered a severe abrasion on my right foot just below the ankle. Examined the culprit boot showed a lump under the gortex lining. I do not know if this is stitching, glue or what. Of course I had thrown out all of the paperwork and box so I'm stuck. Definitely rethinking my boot buying process and will start buying from brick and mortar businesses in the future which will allow me to see and touch before handing over two days pay! Hope other buyers don't encounter this problem.
