Ive been wearing them pretty much everyday doing all kinds of things. From falling & bucking trees to chasing Bigfoot. Well last week the stiching came loose from the side of the sole. I called Rocky this morning & luckily they have a 1yr warranty in manufacture defects. The CS lady sent me a email to send pics & receipt too. Luckily i purchased on line & still had my reciept. So now just waiting to hear back. Hopefully im not out $250.
The 3 reasons i went with Rocky.... Made in USA, triple stiched leather & stiched soles. I figured 1 pair of good boots would last longer than 3 pairs of made in china boots. I could have got cheaper boots, but didn't think they would last. Hopefully i just got some bad stiching & ill be taken care of. If not then i guess ill try some Danners.
I'm a basic btch with no military experience, but I do have a more than a few miles in the mountains of CO, archery hunting, and east Texas woodlands. Lately I've been wearing a pair of 5.11 ATAC's. They're comfortable and seem to be holding up well so far.
For the last month or so, I have been wearing my heavy duty, steel-toe rubber boots because of all the rain, standing water and don't want to get snake-bit. I haven't seen very many snakes so far, but.......that don't mean they ain't out there.
