Converse 8" Rapid Response CT SZ

Converse kicks it up a notch when it comes to combat boots. The Rapid Response features Tailex lining, which ensures long-lasting comfort, abrasion resistance and climate control. Preventing any burdening blisters and other unwanted aches, this technology allows Converse military boots to rapidly adapt to a foot that's constantly in motion. Additionally, it creates tiny air pockets that maintain a favorable climate inside the boot that gives the foot more breathing room during any tactical operation. Especially vital in hot climates, the lining will capture every iota of moisture, pulling it away from the foot and readying it for evaporation as soon as the boot is taken off. This speedy evaporation process greatly reduces mildew- and odor-causing bacteria.

The side zipper is a high-quality YKK brand that unzips with ease so operators don't have to mess with laces after strenuous missions. Its composite toe is rated ASTM F2413-05 I/75 C/75. That means that toes will be safe from an impact up to 75 pounds and compressive loads up to 2,500 pounds.

The removable dual density polyurethane cushion provides a ridged pillow that protects the sole of foot. For extra reinforcement, Converse placed an EVA midsole between feet and the rugged terrain. Rounding out the sole, there's a shock eliminator heel plug and a dual density mountain trail outsole that gives not one, but two firm, shock-absorbing layers of compact rubber.

    • Maiden treck through Philmont
      Reviewer: Conner

      7/31/2013
      These boots are actually surprisingly light and very comfortable. I actually had plenty of time to break them in before hand and I ended up wearing them all the time because I liked them so much. They still held up there own when the trek came around. the design kept my ankle from twisting on awkward rocks and snakes from doing any damage (mojave). I even got to Philmont brand them as a memento. Over all, Great boots. Now here is my Critique. -The area where the rubber treads meet the foam can wear down over time and begin to separate. Some reinforcement or alternative maybe needed. -Stress from hiking is put on the heel padding and the sewing that secures it into place eventually decayed. Reinforcement maybe recommended.

    • Greatness with some drawbacks, but a good deal.
      Reviewer: John

      3/25/2013
      The Good News: 1. Good, non-metalic mode of quick-lacing 2. Great cleats, with lotsa traction and "bite" 3. Heel shape allows a rolling motion when you're running 4. Zipper really is tough and speeds-up getting your boots on, in a hurry 5. Heel has padding under you, to soak up up impact shock, when walking on a concrete ramp or on a road march. 6. Protective toe cap keeps you from getting hurt if someone drops an ammo box on your toe. 7. The way that the toe-area of the front of the sole sweeps-up onto the front of the boot helps it to last longer. 8. Not too heavy, for a fairly protective boot. 9. Seem to be grippy as opposed to sloppy or slippery on a variety of surfaces, including snow and icey slush. No, they're not glacier boots with crampons, but you do feel like you're wearing cleats, like they grab the ground. low foliage and grassy areas. The potential drawbacks.... 1. Early-on, there was initial chafing in the upper heel and lower ankle are; I don't know whether I toughened-up, or the heel area softened-up some, but NO problem, now. 2. If you require extreme stealth, these tough soles are NOT quiet, or nearly silent, like a pair of jungle boots, if you need stealth. 3. Would be better if they were waterproof, like with Gore Tex, like Haix boots, but for this price, what do you expect? 4. Do not dry very quickly, once soaked, but this is partly because these things are more substantial, so there's more TOO dry. Still, I would buy this kind of boot again, and at this low of a price, so long as you can deal with the potential drawbacks, some of which are just a matter of personal preference, this is a heck of a deal, if you ask me. -Worn these for months, now, in hot and cold.

      These are the best pair of boots I've ever had. I'm Active Duty Military and I've been wearing the same pair of boots for over two years now. They hold up great and are very comfortable. They did take about a week and a half for them to be broken in and they did give me blisters the first few days. After they got broken in and the blisters healed, I haven't had any problems since. Definitely getting another pair.

      I've used these boots for a year now and really put them through their paces. I walk over heavy gravel, climb on equipment, walk through mud and water. They've taken everything I can dish out to them and they have held up GREAT. They were a little uncomfortable at first , but within a day or two they were the best boot I've ever worn for work. I have two pair of Red Wing boots, that are brand new, I refuse to ware as long as I have these. They are AWESOME boots. I will buy another pair.

      After wearing these boots 15 minutes around the house. My best description on comfort would be crawling out of my skin. They dig in under the outside ankle bone and cut the skin,again in 15 minutes. the composite toe is to narrow digging into the side of the toes. Sounds like I have a wide foot right, Nope C width narrow foot. There going back.

      I have been wearing these boots for some time now and they remain in good condition and my feet feel like they were poured into the boots they fit so well. The soles and seams are very durable. After messing them up gutting a deer last month, they cleaned up almost like new. Try the Kiwi desert boot cleaning kit to keep them nice looking. Being ex-USAF I love the sage green color, which goes with most anything including many camo patterns.

      For those of you who are tired of the military issue boots, these are the way to go. I bought mine in 2010 and I absolutely love them. They're so easy to put on and the zipper makes it so much easier. Very easy to clean as well, for those of you who have that one 1stSgt who's nit picky about dress and cover...

    • Longest lasting & most Confortable boot owned!
      Reviewer: James Bailey, aka, Runningbear

      11/9/2012
      I Bought my first pair in 2007 for playing Milsim Paintball in the woods & rocky terrains and haven't looked at another boot sense. Ive owned and worn all kinds of work boot, military jungle and jump boot and even swat tactical boot, but non compared to or lasted as long as these. These boots have became my every-day shoe due to their comfort and easy on/off ability and the side zip with no need to tie the boot every day. Now, 5 years later, I'm buying my second pair as my first have finally worn out to the point of needing replacing. I recommend these boots to anyone seeking a comfortable, well constructed, long lasting boot for everyday use, a safety toe working boot or a good hiking/hunting boot.

      Reviewer: Kain

      11/8/2012
      I just received my new boots today and I have to say they fit horribly, this would have been my 3rd pair. Each of the other 2 pairs fit perfectly from day one and lasted a little over a year. I am on my feet 10 hours a day on average and these boots have been incredible. This new pair the compostie toe sticks down too far and the insoles have ridges in the toe area... Absolutely horrible, awating RMA number so I can return them.

      I can't stand the Navy issue boots. They're cruel and unusual torture. These boots feel more like sneakers than boots. A nice perk to the composite toe is they don't set off metal detectors. The zipper doesn't seem like it would be ALL that great, but trust me - when you're getting up at O-dark-thirty, you'll appreciate that extra minute every single time. Also, I normally wear a wide in combat boots, but these are wide enough already for me.

      I have owned my first pair for 2-1/2 years. I am now about retire them and purchase my second pair. From the get go they were the most comfortable boot I have ever worn and I have worn several different boots including Air Force BMT issued Altimas. The side zip makes boot lacing a thing of the past; no worrying about getting them too tight or too loose one day to the next just slip them on and zip you're ready to go.

      Reviewer: MK3

      6/28/2012
      This is the most comfortable pair of boots I've ever owned, and will stand up to some serious abuse. I am a shipboard engineer in the Coast Guard, so my boots are constantly being subjected to things like hot metal, sharp edges, abrasive surfaces, dirty oil, diesel fuel, JP-5, and salt water, and these boots put up with all of it without complaint. I've had them for about a year and the tread is just about worn out, but I understand our decks are hard on boots and the rest of the boot is still fine and just as comfortable as when I bought them. I know it sounds like they wore out quickly but for reference I have yet to see a pair of boots last me more than a year. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 was because the heel support was lacking... a $12 pair of Dr, Scholl's heel pads made them perfect. Mine are about due for replacement, but hey, $100 a year for this level of performance is well worth it to me. I'll be ordering another pair soon.

      I purchased these boots thinking they would be more comfortable than the issued military steel toe boots, boy was I wrong. These boots caused blisters just below the fibula(the little bone that sticks out just forward the heel). They are very heavy and bulky, I really wish I could return them and get my money back. I wore them for a very short time and do not like them.

      Reviewer: N. Santos

      7/1/2011
      I purchased this pair of boots primarily for work. I thought that composite toe boots do not hold up as well as steel toe. After having a cylinder fall out of a weak box and land square on my toes, I was amazed that my feet didn't feel the impact. Perfect ankle support and tread grip on practically any surface. The only gripe I have was inserting arch supporting insoles; like most boots you have pretty much undo the laces to get the insoles place correctly. All in all, they're possibly one of my best pair boots I've owned as of yet.!

      I have had these boots for 6 months now and have probably logged well over 200 miles in them. I decided to go to military boots vs. regular hiking boots figuring if our Military wears them for 16 hours a day in tough terrain deployments there must be something to them. I have not been disappointed. It took a few times to break them in but my feet usually do this with any new shoe/boot that I buy. These broke in quickly. Once broken in they are extremely comfortable. I also have a torn ligaments in one ankle and the 8" support has 100% stopped "rolling" of my ankle. The side zipper is also a great feature for quickly getting in and out of these boots (if you are non-military as I don't think the SZ is per Mil Std). I hike with them all the time in areas with a lot of boulders. In fact, yesterday, I was basically running along a stream-bed for 1.5 miles and these boot were fantastic - like high top light basketball shoes with traction and support. LOL, I am 50 yrs old and in good shape and some teens I passed thought I was crazy boulder hopping at high speed! Now I know why "special forces" go with this type of boot. I really like them!

      I am required to wear ASTM F2413-05 rated shoes/boots at work and my company reimburses $75 every year towards our personal protective equipment. I have been buying a different pair every year, but finally found something I did not need to replace (due to wear & tear/comfort/or otherwise). The composite toe shank does not "bite" the way my other steel toe plates have in the past. Although I do not have to replace these boots every year, I still find myself buying a new pair of Converse Stealth just to keep in the closet just in case they ever decided to stop making these. I have one of each color now. Would highly recommend.

      Not a military type but just a average JOE. Used the boots for a vacation to China last year. A week in Shanghai and a week in Qingdao. Walked everywhere. Boots took a little breaking in( not nearly as much as my other shoes did) and far more support and comfort. Good bang for the buck.

      This boot besides being beautiful and comfortable, has excellent durability, I've got mine still has one year and has a perfect appearance. Protects well, it was money well spent, do not regret anything, I advise everyone to buy it. Military Boots Thanks for the excellent customer service. 10 stars, and this note to this boot. I'm already going for my second pair, same boot and same color.

      I have never put on a pair of boots that are so comfortable! I have been on my feet for 12 hours straight out of the box no break in time and super light compared to my old steel toes. I will buy more!

      I've had 2 pairs of these boots. First pair wore out in 5 months, but that is probably because I was doing a lot of concrete work in the desert. Lots of getting up and down. Shoe laces went first and then the back piece on the upper heel peeled away. The second pair lasted about a year before that piece started to peel away. Other than that, they are perfect and the most comfortable boots ever worn. You could run in these things. Love them, just not cut out for hard labor...

      When I got to my first duty station, I was issued a pair of these boots. (No side zipper, and safety toe) These are by far the MOST comfortable pair of boots I have ever worn. They beat the hell out of the competition. I have worn mine for about two years now and the only thing I could possibly point out as a MINOR flaw is that the outsole seems to wear a little faster than other boots I have owned. But then again it is a softer rubber and more comfortable. They take a minimal time period to break in and after that they feel as comfortable as any pair of tennis shoes you might have. They have plenty of padding and do not restrict circulation like some boots can. They are a little bit warm (depending on climate) but I can sacrifice that for the EXTREME COMFORT that these boots provide.

      Great boots, overall. Insole are very comfortable as well as the inside linen. The break-in period is minimal. The weight difference to a pair of steel toe boots is very noticeable right away which is great if you spend a lot of time on your feet. The side zipper is rugged and eases putting on/taking off the boots. The rubber sole does a great job with traction and shock dampening. Definitely the best mil regulation boots in the market.

      I have owned 3 pairs of these boots in the past 2 years that I spent in Iraq. They're the most comfortable boots I have owned. I wear them a minimum of 12 hours a days seven days a week. Theres time where I would not remove them from my feet until hours after my shift. These boots have held up through the blistering 140 degree tempatures and the many miles thats I walk each day. They are a bit warm but I found that if you leave the zipper down they are much much cooler even more than most other boots. I cant say enough about these boots and neither can my friends who now where them.

    • Best Boots I have ever had on my feet!!!!
      Reviewer: Earl

      This is the second pair of Converse I have had. The first pair was a desert boot soft toe. I liked them so much I wanted to have a pair I could wear to work, (they require safety toe), so I went with the C8874's. They are awesome right out of the box. I am in my second day wearing them and I feel they are already "broken in". I know in reality that they will be fully "broken in" after about 14 days, but they feel great and I am totally happy with these boots. The cushioning is phenominal and I can't ask for a more comfortable work boot. My feet belong in these boots. I'm on my feet all day and it feels like I have guardian angels on them all day. I actually don't want to take my boots off when I get home at night because they feel so good on my feet. I highly recommend these boots.

      I work cargo for Charleston AFB. These boots have a great sole, comfortable and do flex with you. Like any other boot, they need breaking in. I've had mine for almost two years now and will be ordering another pair soon.

      I now own two of these, and have turned my brother-in-law, and my father onto them, they are extremely durable, and fit really well. They are really lightweight, and super comfortable. I have never written a review for footwear before, but I love these boots so much I figured I should. These boots feel like a pair of running shoes, really athletic feel, with really good shock absorption and great ankle support. They dry quickly when wet, I've had them wet multiple times and in other boots I thought I just had naturally stinky feet, but after wearing them for over nine months and getting them wet and they still don't stink. Lace them snug but not tight for the first couple weeks, then as they break in the laces will need to be tightened two more times over the next month, after that you don't ever have to mess with the laces again. At least that's how they worked for me. I've never had a blister from them. My feet were sore for about two months because I think the boots corrected my arch. I wore Altama boots before and they had the worst arch support ever, I think the two years I wore Altama did major damage to my arches and now my Converse boots are correcting it. The only issue I have ever had with these boots is that on one of them the zipper seems to be stuck at the bottom (fully unzipped) some mornings when I try to zip them up, if I grab the zipper on the front and back between my pointer finger, and thumb it pops loose and the boot zips fine. Of both my pairs it only happens on one pair on the right foot, and it hasn't happened on my brother-in-law's or my fathers pair of boots. Other than that they are a trouble free, comfortable, excellent boot. I think you will be happy.

      These boots are flat out ridiculous they are the best boots I have ever bought. Out of the box they feel great after 2 days of wear they feel like your feet. I will never buy any other boot.

      This is just a real experience with these boots. First off they are sized smaller that you normally wear. Not a good boot for anyone working on Aircraft. THe boots do not bend easily and are not ready out of the box. They are very uncomfortable. Don't let the brand name make you think it wears like a sneaker. It does not. The soles are extremely hard and take ALOT of breaking in.

      These boots are fantastic. Super light, very comfortable, easy on & off, all the protection I need for my job. With the free shipping, I received them 2 days after ordering. The price just went up by $5.00 after I placed my order, but if I had to do it again I would still get these.

      Wearing military boots for over 37 years, this is without a dought the most confortable boot I've ever worn. However, I do have one bugging issue with them, that I've yet to get corrected. They squeak when you walk!

      I purchased these boots two and a half years ago thru my employer {machine shop,forge and foundry work} and wore them at least 5 days a week and they are just now ready to replace. MILITARYBOOTS.COM had the best price I could find, when you factor in the FREE SHIPPING these boots are a great deal!

      After trying out my issued boots, which actually hurt my feet to walk in, I went with these. I'm usually between sizes 9.5 - 10 and went with size 9.5 which was the right choice. The boot is very padded and very comfortable. Love the size zip. I have a pretty narrow foot and there is a little too much wiggle room. I'm planning on putting in some inserts which should fix the problem. Also, I don't think they keep your feet as cool as some other boots would.
