    Am I the only one that still prefers a well made Schwarzkopf boot? I like my Garmont boots but they don’t last nearly as long as the old school boots.

    Rocky S2V 670-1 Coyote is available now too.
    Best boots ever, and I’ve own just about every pair available.

    Soldiers have no business in anything other than issued boots.

      What do you do for a Soldier that doesn’t fit the government last?

      One of the dumbest big Army “ducks in a row” comments I’ve ever read.

      Never posted a comment before this, saw that and was just shocked at the pure stupidity of it.

      BRB going to go sweep the parking lot in the middle of a thunderstorm.

        Yeah go fit on your nikes, high speed. In the meantime, us taxpayers will be paying for your stupid induced foot injuries when you decide to go ruckmarching with softsoled tennis shoe pseudo-boots.

        If you are so soft that you need tennis shoe like boots, then get out. Let somebody else with a superior body composition fill in your spot.

        • straps says:

          Rucking is the rare pursuit where “superior body composition” is not really a thing. Little people and big ones BOTH need time to toughen the tissues that ensure they can perform without injury. Females of small stature get broken by taking 30″ steps at quick-time pace–let ’em walk how their bodies are built and they respond to conditioning as well as large-framed males.

          If units acclimate progressively and regularly, they can ruck in shower shoes. The problem isn’t Nike combat boots, it’s units that claim there’s no time for rucking but are all about sending their folks to the Fatness Center so unit leadership can react to the morning metric crisis, or Frisbee PT, or ZOOMBA or some other such BS.

          But nothing good comes from driving every-freakin’-where 28 days a month and strapping in to your body weight for a 12 miler the other 2 ‘cuz that’s the “minimum” established by Battalion. Far as current application, I hear LOTS of people say that only a small percentage of the military even move on foot any more. Fine. Go with a 12 lb assault pack. But remember to also don the armor, basic load and comms, countermeasures, water and medical gear that LARGE numbers of units DO wear while working outside the wire for 4-16 hours at a stretch. Or just ruck. Same benefit.

          I say this as a guy who’s been wearing Danners for 30 years, starting with the Go Devil boot marketed to the folks at Fort Lewis who needed a boot they could wear everywhere from Mt. Ranier to Yakima Training Center. Two rebuilds and 4 resoles later, I still wear those boots. This was back when the most popular “non-issued” boot was the Corcoran Jump Boot (which some knuckleheads wore to the field only after spit-shining caused them to crack behind the toecap), and the second most popular “non-issued” boot was the Altama commercial jungle boot–worn with green 550 cord because that’s how the Batt Boys did it. So yeah, looking beyond ‘cruit boots isn’t necessarily a new thing.

          Me, I’m just hoping that Danner comes to market with a US-made FULLY AR-670-1 compliant boot in Coyote. Would be pretty cool to retire in a pair of American-made Danners…

      Idiocy, pure and simple. Why is it that uniformity is so valuable to you that people can’t wear boots that best fit them?

      • matty says:

        Because you can’t kill the enemy if ya’ll don’t look the same! Apparently WW2 was a fluke.

      • balais says:


        Is that clear enough for ya?

    • Big_Juju says:

      Thanks, Mom.

    • Bill says:

      I think choosing the footwear you live, and may die, in is probably a fundamental human right.

    • Jeremy says:

      Don’t feed the troll.

    • bulldog76 says:

      Ya its not like even roman legionares bought kit that was better than issued kit ….oh wait they did…. lets face it private purchased kit is in alot of cases superior to issued equipment. …

    • Jason says:

      When people hike the Appalachian trail, trek through the Himalayas in Nepal, explore the amazon on foot, climb daunting peaks, or pull sleds through the Antarctic, precisely zero wear US Army issued footwear.

      The Army issues the boots they do because they are durable and don’t cost a lot. They are hardly the best thing out there. We used to run in boots, now grunts wear (gasp) non-issued, non-standard foot wear during PT.

      The Army, by the way, have approved all of these boots for wear. Perhaps you deem your judgment more sound than an entire department that tests clothing and footwear, the Sergeant Major of the Army, Chief of Staff, and the Secretary of the Army…who have all blessed off on this selection of AUTHORIZED boots.

      • balais says:

        Nice series of strawman arguments.

        Im not talking about commercial hiking, or, going a stretch further, special operations forces in eastern afghanistan where commercial hiking boots are superior solutions. Or life and death selections.

        That is a BIT different than deciding to wear nike pseudo-boots because theyre more comfortable than your issue boots in garrison. thats bullshit.

        If issue boots bother people that much, then they need to get medically discharged. Or toughen up.

  4. Tom says:

    Those Nikes are amazing. The lightest most comfortable boots I’ve worn. Feels just like the Nike free running shoes, only they’re boots.

    • jackson says:

      Not the 670-1 SFBs. They are more of a traditional .mil boot than a tennis shoe boot.

  5. Oglee says:

    The only issue I have with the vast majority of these boots is 95% are made in China, Vietnam, or some other country.

    What happened to making boots here, would you settle for plate carrier made in China?
