Rocky Making Donation to Medals of Honor for Every Pair of C7 Boots Sold in February

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

NELSONVILLE, Ohio — Now is the time to purchase a brand new pair of the incredibly lightweight and performance-driven C7 military boots from RockyBoots.com. Beginning February 1 through March 19, Rocky will donate one dollar for every pair sold through its website to the Medals of Honor organization.

Medals of Honor gives the endurance/race community a tangible way to engage with and give-back to the families that lost loved ones while serving our Military. Participants across the country can sign up at medalsofhonor.org and compete in honor of a fallen U.S. service member and donate a finisher’s medal to the surviving family. These medals act as a symbol of honor, remembrance and unity. The organization also accepts fallen hero registration and monetary donations.

“Receiving a medal of honor from, in most cases, a complete stranger who wishes to recognize your family member’s sacrifice is an incredibly moving experience,” said Amy Cotta, founder of Medals of Honor. “We’re honored that Rocky is willing to support our mission and help us provide medals to the families of those who lost their lives fighting for our country. Rocky does a tremendous job in support our military, and we’re thrilled to be able to work with them on this initiative.”

March 19 is the date of the 75th Bataan Death March in New Mexico. The Bataan Death March is an incredibly popular race through the high desert terrain of the White Sands Missile Range. The memorial march is conducted in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and, in many cases, their lives.

Many participants in the Bataan Death March and other similar competitions wear Rocky footwear, and even some participants in local 5K and 10K races throughout the country chose to wear military boots to honor the men and women of the armed services.

“Rocky is a longtime supplier to the U.S. military and a popular footwear choice for those who serve,” said Mark Dean, VP of Rocky’s commercial military division. “We are always excited to partner with organizations that support our soldiers or their families. Medals of Honors offers a unique and meaningful way to honor those who lost their lives fighting for our country, and the Bataan Death March is the standard bearer for race events honoring our soldiers.”

For more information on Medals of Honor, visit www.medalsofhonor.org. Information on the Bataan Death March is available at bataanmarch.com, and more information on Rocky’s military footwear can be found at www.rockymilitary.com.

In addition to the no-snag lacing they introduced last year, they’ve replaced the 550 cord laces with FR laces that don’t absorb water.

They also slightly modified the balance of Cordura and leather area coverage to enhance breathability and they’ve incorporated a more durable ankle reinforcement.

The biggest upgrade is in the sole. The older sole is on the left and the new model which incorporates a distinct heel is on the right. They also depended the lugs and made the gaps wider to more easily deal with mud.
