In July, Soldier Systems Daily wrote about Rocky‘s slated release of the S2V Jungle Boot. So we thought we would check in with Rocky’s public relations rep to see if she could release anymore details.
Collaborating with military personnel, the Rocky team have designed a S2V styled boot that easily functions in the wet tropical conditions. The Cordura boot is very well ventilated with holes punched throughout the heel. Durable enough to stand up vines and thorns, its ankles are reinforced with steel mesh.The unlined boot has a thin rubber-like coating over the toe to protect wear-and-tear from vines and harsh vegetation.
“We teamed up with some of world’s best soldiers to develop the highest performing, most breathable jungle boot on the market,” said Steve Graham, marketing manager for Rocky Duty. “As our customers attest, nothing but the finest materialgoes into the S2V, which guarantees performance you can count on.”
S2V Jungle Boot has been in testing and production for the past couple of months. It is Berry Compliant and slated for release in
the fall of 2011 spring 2012. Priced at the same level as the current S2Vs (around $250), it will be available in tan and/or olive mojave.
Are your boots more suited to tropical or arid environments?
