The Oakley SI Assault boot is lightweight but rugged enough for tough terrain and military operations.
Oakley SI Assault boot review
I really liked these boots the minute I put them on. They fit my foot great and have so far lasted well working in them every day. These shoes are light weight, breathe well and lasted me 2 deployments one in Iraq and one in Afghan. I did have to resole the boots so i could have some traction going up mountains, but i will keep these boots forever along with the souls as a war momentum.

Nike SFB boot review
I think this is one of my favorite boots ever, and I own quite a few different brands. One exception is not the latest generation so sole is not stitched, Not waterproof as well but dry fast,
The Nike Special Field Men’s Boot was engineered to the specifications of world-class heroes, from military professionals to rescue and law personnel.
The result: the lightest, fastest-drying, highest-mobility performance boot Nike has ever made.

Awesome for foot patrol. I often do 8hrs straight with no issue. Way more comfortable than my old pair of bates boots.
Durable, nice fit, great looking, lightweight, the only problems are no steel toe, no easy out (zipper type thing up the side), and that on wet tile they can be very slippery. I will be buying these nikes from now on.

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.
A question we received from one of our athletes is “Can you resole Nike SFB boots?”. Yes; of course you can put any sole on the boot you want. Try a Vibram sole.
Question: Which do you prefer for a long ruck, the nike sfb vs oakley? The most important thing is to make sure the boot fits your foot. You may have a wide foot or narrow foot so try look at that first. From there you need a boot that is lightweight and drains well.
Question: What about the nike sfb field 6 reviews? You mean the 6 inch boots – yes; take a look at the reviews above.
