The C4T is lightweight and drains well. With a price of under $90 it will not only keep it light on the wallet but will last out in the field to get your money worth.
Rocky C4T boot review by Matt:
I’m on my fourth pair of these, so I figure I should provide some feedback. I’m very pleased with this boot for light to medium duty tasks to include heavy rucking. The Rocky C4T Tactical Boot held up much better than I expected, typically getting around 1.5 yrs/pair of daily use (I consider them worn out when the tread is almost gone. You could wear them much longer for light duty use). Never had an issue with them falling apart other than an eyelet pulling out after alot of use. The sole of the boot is made out of a softer rubber than most boots, which really helps cushion the feet. The insole isn’t bad, either. I have never broken a lace and they stay put, so not much more to ask there.

Rocky C4T boot review by M. Goring
These are close to the ultimate lightweight Army boots. For the POG REMF Fobbit in ACUs, they’re tough to beat. The Rockys weight about the same as a pair of New Balance Army running shoes, and might even be more comfortable. Why these boots are named after the standard military explosive compound C4 is a mystery, but they won’t blow up your feet like a set of heavy leather Danners or Bellevilles will. These boots have a nice wide, soft rubber sole that is perfect for patrolling the linoleum hallways of any 2-Star command… the soles are very quiet, so nobody will hear you when you’re sneaking out of the building and heading home at 1400 to catch the game… also good for coming up quietly behind the 1SG and getting him to spill his coffee. I bought the Wide size, and after serving in 5 Infantry Battalions, there’s enough room for the orthotics to keep my broken feet relatively happy throughout the duty day. The wide, flat, soft sole is great for the open hallways and drill hall floors of the Armorys of America, but you wouldn’t want to use them off-road… besides getting your boots dirty (and straying from air conditioning) the soles don’t offer much traction for outdoor activities. The uppers are lightweight nylon with a couple of reinforcing straps, but don’t expect much ankle support… these boots are made for cubicles, not strenuous activities.
Question: What are a good pair of military grade socks to go with the tactical boots?
We like the Fox River Military Boot Sock. These socks do a great job of protecting your feet and preventing blisters. These socks are ok to pack and take to Ranger school so you know they will be good enough for everyones feet out in the woods.
