  • 4 out of 5 Breaking in the boots over the last two weeks. They do run long, so order 1 full size down, still a bit loose but an insole did the trick to make them fit right.

  • Perfect fit!

  • 5 out of 5 These are my boots. I'm on the railroad walking in ballast, sand, rocks, brush....and I do it in the low desert. 118* highs, 90% humidity type desert....miserable!! I need boots like these, a hat, sunblock and a large camelback just to walk a few cars back in my train. I used to buy Altama's..until they went out of buisiness. These are just as well made and more comfortable! Best price on the interwebs from tacticalgear.com.

  • 4 out of 5 These boots look great and are very natural to walk/run in. I bought these for the Panama sole. I think they'll last a very long time. I wear a size 12 but bought a size 11.5 based on reviews on the web saying to buy a full size down. I think I could have gotten away with an 11. I would have given these a 5 but the Cordura (textile) surfaces on the side are a little more olive drab than pictured. However, they're still "sage" enough to pass as Air Force boots. Also, the Cordura surfaces tend to buckle and make a flapping noise when in stride. I think the noise will go away once these are fully broken in (I've only had them for roughly two weeks. Overall: good product, would buy again/recommend to a friend.

  • 5 out of 5 Plain and simple, these are the best boots around. They are durable, light, and fit perfectly to your feet after a quick break in period. Buy some quality insoles for added comfort and you have the perfect boot. I have worn these for years and they hold up much better than the modern tennis shoe type of boots seen today. You will not regret buying these boots.

  • 5 out of 5 Boots arrived quickly, quicker than expected actually since it was shipped direct from the manufacturer. I wanted a made in USA boot and looked around extensively. This one had great reviews so i went with it. Size is true, with a good fit. They seem to be rugged and comfortable, just need to break them in a bit. Would buy again.

  • Love them!

  • 5 out of 5 At first I was skeptical on this purchase, but I'm glad I went through with it! They are very comfortable, and look great on my foot! I do recommend purchasing a size lower than your current shoe size...mine are a little more roomy, and I attempted to purchase a half size smaller. Other than that...great boot!

  • 5 out of 5 Had these boots for two months deployed and the last 10 months in garrison. In the last year they have held up perfect. The only maintenance was replacing the lacing with para cord. Still very comfortable, no hot spots and still good tread left in the sole. I will get people every once in awhile in my shop ask me how do I like my "Old School" jungle boots and i tell them there my favorite boots by far and recommend them to anyone over the newer boot designs.

  • 5 out of 5 I was skeptical buying because I thought there must be a better more modern boot. But I bought these anyway because of the good reviews and made they did not disappoint!! The best boots I've ever bought. Comfortable and fits well. I've had these for about 6 months now and no signs of wear and tear. They seem to be build very well.. oh yeah, cuz they're made in Murica!!

  • 5 out of 5 The day after I received the boots (two days BEFORE the promised delivery date), I went out for a six mile hike over mixed dry/flooded backcountry. The boots performed extremely well, with no break-in required and dried up and cleaned up well afterwards. An excellent product.

  • 5 out of 5 Man, super fast shipping! Boot's are very comfortable and I wear them almost every day. At first I thought they might be a little big, but after they're broke in, they fit just right. For you Nam Vet's these are a hell of alot more comfortable then what we were issued. From a Marine to all my Nam Bros Welcome Home Bros

  • 5 out of 5 Best jungle boot ever made, even better quality than the Altama. The leather has a very smooth finish, and takes a great shine. The boots are cool and comfortable, with zero break in period. The sizes run large, so order a full size smaller than what you usually get.

  • Simple and awesome.

  • 5 out of 5 Very little break-in period for these boots. I have worn about six different brands of boots in my 7 years in the Air Force, ranging from the BMT issue Belleville to top of the line 5.11 Tactical I got issued before a deployment. Ive been on 3 deployments and a tour in Korea and done my fair share of field exercises and I gotta say these boots are the most comfortable boots I have worn yet. Theres a reason this design has been around for so long and is the perfect hot climate all terrain boot. I recommend getting a half size smaller than what you normally wear (I wear a size 8 normally and a 7 1/2 fits perfect for me).

  • 5 out of 5 I have worn these boots through all seasons and all kinds of conditions and they have held up better than any boot I have ever had! They have survived almost 2 years of just about everything including being worn through the harsh winter conditions of snow and salt as well as summer heat and rain. I have done lots and lots of walking, hunting, and used them as my work boot for my maintenance job. I substituted the laces that came with them with 550 para cord and they have never worn out. They are very comfortable and breathable in the summer heat! I highly recommend these boots!

  • 5 out of 5 I ordered these because I really like the style and the Altama Panama were all out of my size. I've been wearing Corcoran Marauders for the last few years but needed and new pair and wanted Panama style boots. I wore an 8.5 in the Marauder but sized down to an 8 with the McRaes and I'm glad I did. They fit me perfect. The first few days of wearing them are not the most pleasent but once they break in they are really comfortable.

  • 4 out of 5 Was looking for a USA made Boot. Ive ownd Jungle boots for over 15years. Altima, and Wellco no longer make them in GREEN But these McRae's are just as good. They dont have the marlin Spike protcetion but great boot. However the thread life is not that long if really worn alot.I wear mine daily. However boot can be resoled up using a harder Vibram sole that makes it last foreverSo no need to throw them away as I have done in the past with good boots with worn out soles. Plus its Made in the USA. It does matter.

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.
