Rocky Boots

Has anyone ever order anything from Rocky's online site? How's the service? Looking for a pair of new hunting boots.

Re: Rocky Boots

Based on my last experience with Rocky Boots, I would be looking at a different company.

Was not impressed at all with durability.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

Re: Rocky Boots

I have to agree with everyone above, consider another company.
My rubber boots were made by Rocky, dry rotted in a year.

Re: Rocky Boots

I've owned two pairs of Rocky boots and won't buy another. Both leaked within the first year after low/moderate use. The second pair started coming apart within that first year....sole started separating. I'd look at something else. Rocky USED to be quality boots, but it sure doesn't seem like it the last five years or so.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Rocky Boots

I'll never buy Rockies again. I'll never buy Irish Setters again. I'll never buy a pair of boots again without going to the store to try them on.
An ill fitting pair of boots can take your focus off everything else because your feet HAVE to be comfortable.
Danner Pronghorns are excellent boots for the money, as are any of the Meindle's. A $150 pair of Cabelas brand may be the most bang for your buck and they come in every size under the sun.

Re: Rocky Boots

I agree with most everyone else. I think Rocky's are the most over rated boot manufacturer available. Never had a pair last more then a year and I don't wear my boots that often.
