    • Best boot I've worn so far
      Reviewer: Sarah

      1/1/2016

      I've tried at least 4 other styles of boots and they all seem to hit the upper part of my foot weird on my arch, cut into the sides of my feet, or cause blisters for no reason. These boots not only fit like a glove, they feel as close to wearing tennis shoes as I think you can get in uniform. I would buy these again and again.

      Why can't I get these in other colors? Tan is only color my son will wear. Also, boots I bought last year only lasted six months before bottom sole started coming apart, is there any refund on defective boots?

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      We apologize you can't find the color you like and that your boots were defective! These boots were discontinued to make room for a newer style so we only have limited stock. Contact our customer service team and we'll see what we can do for you!

      Reviewer: Peyton

      8/10/2015

      I was forced to order this boot due to the fact it's one of the only boots that makes a size 4 in men's (6 in women). Wasn't too happy about it because I normally go for a different style of boot. However as soon as I put them on my attitude changed. Love them!! Extremely thankful to this company for making a size for small military members too.

      at first, I got these and they cramped the hell out of my feet. I took out the insoles they had inside and replaced them with smaller and more comfortable insoles, and they became 10x better. loved them since. super light and durable, water proof. same size as your regular boot size, need like a day or two to break in.

    • Not very impressed.
      Reviewer: Patrick

      3/27/2015

      Apparently this boot has changed in construction some. Fits a full size smaller than listed, hard, clunky sole, and a seam that runs across the top of the foot that will not be comfortable, and because it is a full lace, by the time you slide your foot in, the already uncomfortable seam folds and becomes worse. And now I have to pay for shipping to return. Boots can get pretty expensive going this route. Light weight, and fabric appears durable. Did not wear them because of size issue so not sure how they would hold up long term.

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      We apologize that your boots failed you and for any inconvenience with your return! At this time we do not cover the cost of return shipping, but are working toward better options for our return process and appreciate your patience. We do not stipulate which shipping carrier or method that you would need to use to ship that back to us and do typically suggest going with a slower, less expensive option as our warehouse is located in the Midwest, and returned items usually arrive within about a week with most shipping methods. Again, we appreciate your patience while we work to get better return shipping options for you. We do apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us, we'd be happy to help.

      These boots are phenomenal. No break in period required! Also the sizes run accurate, didn't have to go up or down a size. These c4ts are like tennis shoes, I laced them up and was ready to go run miles. I fully intend on buying more ASAP.

      Reviewer: Matt

      3/5/2015

      I've owned 3 pairs of the C4Ts and have been pleased every time. The fit, lacing system, ruggedness have all exceeded my expectations. I would like to see a different style of tread to give the C4T a better grip. After a really long time of wear and tear, they basically become ice skates. That's the only improvement I would recommend. Best boot Rocky has ever made.

      The boots run almost 2 sizes smaller. Wool socks you will need a half size bigger. I wear a 11.5 and had to return them for a. 12.5 wide. With wool socks they are still snug. As to the boot itself it's super light and well made. Hopefully after break in they will stretch a bit.

      I bought a pair of mens rocky C4 Trainers 12M...I'm not satisfied with the fit, the strings are not quick lace and hard to draw up, the canvas top does not fit snug to my ankles and and the canvas makes a creeky noise when I walk....I would like to return them for a full refund if possible, but I couldn't find any return procedures on your website....The boot has a comfortable sole. ...Not good for Soldiers with a slender build because of the bulky makeup of the boot

      Reviewer: Stacey

      12/4/2014

      I bought these boots for my daughter who's in the Corps at Texas A&M. The boots she was issued were extremely heavy and difficult to run in. After reviewing several different boots, I chose these based on all of the positive reviews and the price was excellent. She absolutely loves them. In fact, she wore them all day the first day because they were so comfortable. She has done several runs with them and couldn't be happier. Whoop!!

      10/8/2014

      This a really good boot, very light and durable, although I don't recommend using it on the field, but for PT on the other hand, well nothing beats it. Pros: lightweight, durable, and comfortable after they break in. Con's: well, the shoe laces are to Fat I guess, and it makes it kinda difficult to take off and put the boot on, you'll see what I mean once you get them. Oh the boot will feel like I doesn't fit and that you need a whole size bigger, well that's just the breaking in of the boot.

    • Very Light
      Reviewer: MSgt Carter

      8/30/2014

      Great for office, flat range, and generally standing/walking around wear but definitely not something I'll wear for rucks or field work (S2Vs handle that wonderfully). These fit snug and break-in was a little more painful than expected. Another guy and I both had our heels rubbed raw but the issue subsided after a few continuous wears. I also had just a bit of excess fabric running across the bridge of one foot where the tounge seam is at. With the snug fit, that fabric caused some pain until I burnt it off with a lighter. I've learned to wear thin socks with these boots vs thicker boot socks. I also wasn't a fan of the laces. I know these aren't speed lace boots, but my God it was a hassle. I now use 550 cord with the guts pulled out. Outside of those issues, the insole is very cushy which is a nice change of pace. The boots are unbelievably lightweight and breathable/cool. Again, not a field boot, but a nice light duty boot. I know of one person who tried these on a 6 mile trail ruck recently and regretted it (bled through the heel) but loves them around the office.

      Boots are extremely light. Have quick pull laces. But are very hard to get back off. Laces don't want to loosen. Boots are comfortable. And fit well. I did order a half size bigger than I normally where.

      These boots are good, one thing I noticed though, if you wear them fresh out the box it may constrict your blood flow to your ankle area, they need some break in time. Took them camping, it rained some, got them wet, the paracord laces started to get little bumps in them. Other than that they're extremely comfortable and lightweight.

      These are a great boot for any occassion, especially the ones the Army throw at you. From field problems to deployments, I believe this is a complete package from protection to comfort. You do have to buy these a half a size bigger if you have a wide foot but that can be eleiminated if you know you size in wide boots.My second pair in two years and I plan to buy the C5's next.

      Not the best boots on the market, good for garrison but I won't wear them on a road march or in the field. I own a set of "Belleville sabre 333" and they are my favorite boots to wear...they are actually comfortable right out of the box. These rocky's are very light but need some break in time. Overall, they are very good boots for the money

      I have had these boots for a year and I have enjoyed them. Would recommend for purchase. Pros: lightweight, comfortable, and wear well (sole has not separated from suede upper). Cons: Part of the sole fades to a OD green color, and the boot does not have the greatest traction.

      Reviewer: Kelly

      10/25/2013

      I researched for weeks to decide on my next pair of boots. After reading tons of reviews and analyzing what exactly I needed for walking up and down Disney, I chose these boots. I was skeptical because most reviews I read said that they will fall apart. Since I'm likely not going to be trekking up and down mountains or walking across rugged terrain (unless you think the gravel at Warrior is rugged), I figured I would go with something that is cushy. I decided on these over the Nike boots based primarily on price. I have had these boots for a week now and they are EXTREMELY comfortable. I took off one star because there is a spot running up my achilles tendon on both feet where the fabric just above the leather is rubbing. Also, the 550 cord laces make them slow to put on my feet. I am monitoring them for signs of the rubber peeling. That probably won't occur for a bit. If you are buying for actual combat operations though, the box states very clearly that these are for garrison training, so don't be shocked if they fall apart on you if you are doing a lot of walking in rocky terrain.

      I've had these for about two weeks now. Didn't need any break in time. Put them in and was ready to go. The only thing I didn't like was that the shoelaces were a little too short for me. I have to undo the top 3 links to get my foot in. But as soon as it is in, it fits and feels great. Not a whole lot of traction of wet tile so be careful if you are in that area. Great around the base though.

      7/19/2013

      About 15 soldiers from my unit purchased this Rocky model prior to our deployment. They feel great, fit perfect, and are very light and they have that look cool element too. About 2 months into the deployment, I started noticing the rubber on the sides (on photo look where it says Rocky on the side) was separating from the boot. About week later rubber on the tip of the boot did the same thing. Simply, boots fell apart. Don't waste your money on this product. Expected life span is about 6 months. Do not buy this pair if u are going to Stan. We all work indoors, in Cuba prisons, so there is no rocks, rain or other elements that could have caused any damage to this boot. In nutshell, material quality is terrible.

      Read the description for these and the SV2 when I was deciding on a boot for Afghanistan. The product description says they are mostly for Garrison use but I figured I would mostly be on base or in a vehicle so they should be fine. Boots were very comfortable but after a few months on the rocky terrain found even on the base the soles fell apart. Same thing happened to most of the guys in my unit that had the same boots. Also, the 550 cord laces snag easily and the inner strings come out. The boots also stain very easily. I would buy another pair for home station but not for a rocky sandy environmet. Should have went the SV2's for deployment.

      I did a 5 mile, 55lb ruck with these boots less than two weeks after receiving them: No blisters or hot spots. It was only 5m but with barely any break in time and began raining after mile 1. Very light and dry out quickly. The only reason for deducting one star is because they do not go on quickly. If you need to get ready "time now" you may be the last one in formation.

      Served overseas in many countries, these boots are as great as garrison boots. Most people believe it to be noncom boots but, take my word for it, they may not look pretty but they'll hold their own. Be it concrete or stacking out on a rock quarry, oil field, or river. These boots are lighter than most Nike shoes and offer stability. The stains it will easily attain doesn't affect performance and are a sure badge of honor

My 550 cord laces are already starting to rip open and the inner cords are coming out in several places and I plan to replace them with some real laces. Overall, great fit and look.

      2/16/2013

      when i wear these compared to my S2Vs, my S2Vs have more toe room. so ordering a size bigger would have been smart. Anyways, my main pro with these is that they are incredibly light, and i play paintball so they really allow me to maneuver the way i could in Tennis shoes. That alone will convince me to buy another pair, especially now since I'll be able to buy them in Coyote. The lower eyelets didn't take long to start falling out, but that really has not affected the boot. Im technically a subcontractor in the summer and these put up with paint, some burning from welding, epoxy when i painted a large shop floor (kind of ruined the look but oh well haha) The bottoms of them are moderately torn up but they are still working for me. If you think you'll need to run in boots, then these a a phenomenal choice once they are broken in, also make sure the sole is flat or it might push your foot upwards and its quite agitating (the sole will stay in place once you adjust it) These boots would probably only last about a year honestly if you wore them constantly. Oh yeah, Im also a drummer and I have played a concert in these and i can still get my double pedal action in since these are so light ha. Great boots.

      8/20/2012

      Got these boots toward the end of my tour in Afghanistan. I absolutely loved them at first until realizing that the rubber was peeling of the sole. To make these boots light, the soles are made of some sort of foam with rubber glued to it in certain areas. Not exactly durable if you're in a rough terrain. I'm also not a fan of the way the toe portion of the boot curls up. I was told many times that it looked like I was wearing clown shoes. Other than that these boots are super light and very comfortable, but buy them for what they were intended for - garrison use and possibly road marches.

I have to say the service from this site was fantastic, particularly in this day and age when I have come to expect very little.
