    • Stay committed during training with footwear that's built for the challenge. The Rocky C4 Trainer boot is one of the lightest military boots on the market and was designed to withstand rigorous U.S. Military training programs. When there's no time to waste, make sure you're armed with a boot that will help you keep up.

      Built for Performance
      The Rocky C4T was created from the ground up to meet the demands that garrison training throws at you. Adapt to any situation with features like a water-resistant upper and tons of durability.

      Insanely Light
      Redefine lightweight comfort and say goodbye to bulky boots that weigh you down. At just 15 oz. per boot, these feel more like an athletic shoe. That means you can concentrate less on your footwear and more on the task at hand.


      • Stay ultralight at just 15 oz. per boot
      • Long-lasting leather upper
      • Water-resistant and quick to dry
      • Tough 550 paracord laces
      • Speed-lace eyelets and NATO hooks for quick-and-easy lace-up
      • Reinforced stitched toe guard for long-lasting protection
      • EVA outsole keeps you resistant to slips, oil, heat, abrasions and chemicals

    • 5 out of 5 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.

    • 3 out of 5 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.

    • 3 out of 5 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
      We're so sorry to hear that these boots didn't work out for you! To make a return, please contact our Customer Service department. They can get you all set up. -

    • 5 out of 5 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!!

    • 5 out of 5 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.

    • 4 out of 5 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 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.

    • 5 out of 5 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.

    • 5 out of 5 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.

    About Rocky 8" C4 Trainer

    • The C4 Trainer is Rocky's lightest boot yet. The follow-up to its S2V combat boot, the C4 Trainer weighs in at just .94 pounds. Its light weight and athletic-shoe fit gives those in uniform extra oomph in the field. Rocky Airport footbed and an EVA/rubber lightweight outsole adds to the feather-like feel. Rocky rounds out the C4 Trainer line with a selection of oxfords and hikers.

    About Rocky

    Rocky collage Beginning in 1932, Rocky Shoes sprang from the minds of two brothers who found themselves out of a job during the Great Depression. Although the company has switched hands throughout the years, its footwear has always been renowned for its durability and ruggedness. It places high value in waterproof shoes and boots that actually work. It is one of the largest customers of Gore-Tex waterproof fabric for footwear. As the first manufacturer to market an all-Cordura nylon fabric hunting boot, Rocky incorporates this technology in a number of styles. No matter their intended purpose, Rocky boots can withstand some of the harshest conditions while providing comfort and protection.
