Rothco Speedlace boots are proven to provide stability and power on practically any terrain. Padded collars, removable insoles and vulcanized rubber outsoles provide optimal cushioning. Made of suede leather and Cordura materials, the uppers and midsoles fend off the advances of harsh weather and water. The proprietary brass-coated speed hooks and eyelet-lacing system complement the heavy-duty tread. Built to handle most active and outdoor activities, the shoes deliver bounce while keeping every step surefooted. These high-tops are ventilated so that feet can breathe. They provide the ankle support that backpackers and hikers need on a road march. These GI-style boots feature a military-inspired construction at an economical price.
