    [QUOTE=Bootsgeek;2694796]It's my TOP 3 choice of best boots for rucking:

    Smith & Wesson Breach 2.0 Tactical Side Zip Boots
    Danner Tachyon Duty Boots
    Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Boots

    These boots are extremely lightweight, comfortable and have an outsole with good resistance.

    If you need more information about these and other best boots for rucking you can use this materials free - SHILL URL

    Not only that, but the OP is about issued boots. None of those boots are issued and I know just from the name that the S&Ws are far from even authorized.

    Please, don't be so rude, fellow. It's my opinion about rucking boots based on 10+ year experience in hunting and hiking.

    I'll be appreciate to you for your own opinion about these boots or any other.

    The best boot for rucking is the issued hot weather boot. Have the toe and ankle cups pulled out, lace it with gutted 550 skipping the lace holes over the crease at the ankle. Put in whatever Superfeet insole fits your foot profile, or pony up the coin for custom orthotics.

    Do not do the full SOPC Special most do when they pull the cups. That sole is slicker than snot if you so much as touch mud. I had a pair that I wore for shit like log PT or kit runs when we would be on hardball, but I honestly hated them.

    If you can get away from issued boots, I have a soft spot for the Garmont T8.

    I'll appreciate you paying to become an advertising sponsor, and not leach off our bandwidth. You did the same thing at two other websites I visit.

    You also did not post the appropriate info in your sig line, in violation of forum rules.

    So, bye.

    If anybody spots a new user that smells like the shill I just perma-banned, let a mod or staff member know.

    Thanks.

    I had the best luck with re-soled Jungle (hot-weather) boots. I don't remember exactly which soles I got, but they were soft, with good traction, and a smoother heel to toe angle (instead of the pronounced OEM heel that comes on those)

    Once you figure out your boots - add the following to your setup:
    - several pairs of good WOOL socks.
    - “bag-balm” - (comes in a green metal can) literally lather your feet in this stuff before you put your socks on. Pretty sure they still sell it at Wally-World. (May sound silly, but trust me it works!)

    This literally made the difference between almost not making 18 miles thru the mountains and 3-4 days of painful blister recovery vs literally run-walking and zero blisters (not even a hot spot) and zero down time the next time, when I used it.
