    • 5 out of 5 Many people are saying they cause blisters because they get the wrong size. If you get the correct size you will love them as much as I do. I have been in for 6 years and only on my third pair so they last.

    • This is one painful boot

    • 1 out of 5 I don't know if it's just my pair that I received, but this boot gave me really terrible blisters and unusually sore feet while first breaking them in. Even long after break-in, it still messes up my heels after an extended time. The only time I don't feel any pain at all is when I'm stationary, but that doesn't really make these boots useful. Can't always trust everything military-issued, unfortunately

    • These are bare bones basic, literally

    • 3 out of 5 For people looking over this site to buy boots cause they are going to basic and you're going to Benning, these are the boots you're wearing whether you like it or not. They suck till you break them in. They litterally gave my feet stress fractures, a knee problem and blisters the size of the spiders out there. I still love and wear the damn things, but I'm still going to admit they freaking suck while you're going through all the stupid crap Drill Sergeants come up with. Also, before you buy these to try and break them in before Basic training so you can bring a "cheater" pair with you, I'd only advise against it since there is a chance they might have changed the pair they issue anymore ontop of the chance they'll screw with you like the reception sergeants telling your training sergeants to check your boots and making you put the working pair in your personal bag

    • 5 out of 5 I've worn this boots for about 4-5 years, the soul still feels great, the harder plastic started to fall off a year again but they are still good. There's a small hole near my big toe in both boots, and I've ran these things through hell and back. If the only thing that is wrong with them is a little hole and tread, i'm buying two more pairs

    • Amazing Boots!!!

    • 5 out of 5 I've worn these boots now for 4 years with two deployments to afghanistan. I've had them resoled once and finally they just gave out and blew a huge hole in the side and the heel. What more can you ask for. This is a great boot. -Infantryman

    About McRae

    McRae collage Best known for its combat footwear, McRae Industries actually got its start in 1959 by making kid's shoes for work and play. Then in 1965 the focus shifted to serve the military industry. Two years later McRae won its first military contract by the Department of Defense, and its olive drab jungle boots were soon seen on the battlefield of Vietnam. The U.S. government chose McRae because of its direct molded sole and vulcanized construction. Realizing that there was a high demand for the boot outside of the military realm, McRae started to offer its boots commercially. Most of McRae's footwear line is produced in the United States.
