Oakley SI Assault boot review by Lucas
I will keep these boots forever as they fit my feet perfect. These suckers 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.

The Oakley Men’s SI Assault 8″ Boot is lightweight but rugged enough for tough terrain and military operations.

Oakley SI Assault boot review by Rude Boy Shogun
Best boot ever, and I own quite a few. One exception is not the latest generation so sole is not stitched, Not waterproof as well but dry fast,

Rocky S2V review by RL:
I wore these boots through Infantry Officer Basic Training and US Army Ranger school last summer, and they were great. TheRocky S2V Tactical PTFE Military Boots 12 W durability is unmatched. What really makes these boots perfect for Ranger School is the insole. The insole is very thick and provides great cushion and stability for your foot, which is extremely valuable when you have a 100lb rucksack on your back.

Rocky S2V boot review by Jordan
I am an active duty U.S. Army service member. Having used numerous types of boots from the ever popular Danners, to the less commonly seen Nikes. Having a good set of boots is a top priority for all service members. Being able to ruck march for long periods of time with large amounts of wieght is an essential ability in my line of work.

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. The Rocky C4T 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.

You may also want to try boot inserts for a longer endurance hike.

Superfeet review by Bill:
The one real cool thing about the Superfeet Green Premium Insoles is that they have the hard plastic bottom. This, contrary to what seems logical, is the most healthy shock absorption for your feet. Compare it to running on sand versus running on cement. if you run on sand, your joints work a lot harder, and your body is not able to absorb the shock as well, causing pain. If you run on cement, your subtalar joint won’t splay outwards as much, causing the fatty tissue under your foot to take more of the shock. The Superfeet encourages this with a deep heel cup, so it supports your heel, forcing the fatty tissue to cup your heel, creating the best shock absorption ever.
