Rocky S2V Review by Tanner:
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.
Of all the boots I have owned, the Rocky S2v Boot
have really set the standard in terms of comfort, durability, breathability, and grip. From Germany to Camp McKall special forces selection assesment training, to Afghanistan these boots have held up through every condition.

Danner Rivot TFX® Hot Military Boot Review by Anton
I am using this boot for training up for and going through ranger school. To start off, i put warm as a con because i live in the pacific northwest, my feet were super warm in this boot and I am concerned about going down to georgia in the summer. That being said, the pro’s of this boot outweigh however hot my feet have gotten, so far.I have tried many boots, and am writing this review so that readers can get a good idea of what the Danner Desert TFX G3 Boot is all about.I have used/own the following boots: issue Alama’s, issue Bates, Danner Desert Acadia’s, Danner Roughout TFX, Garmont T-8, Nike SFB, Lowa Desert Elite, Lowa Uplander Desert, OTB 8″ Bushmaster, and the Rocky S2V’s. I also don’t just walk around the street or go to the range and get them muddy. I’ve done climbs of over 6000 vertical feet in rough terrain, including snow, ice, mud, scree, rock, dirt, etc.

Rocky S2V boot review by NC:
The day I got these boots I ran 8 miles in them with issued wool socks. The next day I was in a 10 mile ruck march with only a 35 pound pack so I ran that as well. I completed both of these wearing these boots brand new without so much as a hot spot, I find that impressive for a brand new boot like the Rocky S2v Boot. I will say that from what I can see the construction of these boots seems to be very well thought out and I trust that they will last me quite a while. While they are relatively expensive and are not accepted at some schools i.e AAST they are worth the extra penny. They have already out lasted my Altama 8″ exospeeds which cost me about $90.00 and lasted only 6 month due to land nav in semi rough terrain. The vibram sole is very durable. I have put almost 200 miles on them now (running or rucking) and have not seen any signs of wear. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
