    Here's the product: www.rockyboots.com/rocky-core-waterproof-insulated-outdoor-boot/FQ0004755.html?gclid=CIr4qI2f57oCFUHhQgodNFIAhQ&ut m_medium=Shopping&utm_campaign=Inventory%2BMarketi ng&utm_source=Google

    Bought a pair of these last week. Three days in the field and the boots have blown out in three different places! Also the grommets for laces are popping out. And to top it off, these are perhaps the most uncomfortable pair of lace-up boots I have ever put on my feet! Killed me coming out last night! Maybe only six miles of hiking all day long. If I'd had some serious hiking to do, would never have made it. These boots are JUNK!

      Rocky has been slipping in quality for awhile now. The only thing Rocky I own now is thermals. Hopefully they will reimburse you for your purchase.

        What is nice about this site is the ability to post spontaneous product reviews like this.
        Makers of shoddy goods don't get away with it for long when word-of-mouth commentary goes viral.

          Rocky produces a really crappy boot; one of the worse made boots out there. As much as you hunt OHH, why don't you buy a good pair of boots from Lowa or Kenetrek?

            I was going to say my Rocky boots were good until Jay made his remarks.

              I bought a pair of rocky boots about 10 years ago, the clunkiest, hard to walk in boots I ever owned! I did not wear them log enough to find out how well made they were, just got rid of them.

                Jay, the problem with me buying a really expensive boot is I can't seem to get them to last very long. I just wear boots out too fast to make it worth unloading a couple hundred bucks for something really fine. There are so few birds around this year that I'm really putting the footwear through the wringer. And my dogs. The two labs are on shifts but the pup is being worked steady. Pearl only gets to work half days a couple of times a week or her hip gets sore.

                The store refunded my money and didn't blink. I had the receipt and box. Even left the freebie Rocky keychain in the box. The gal took one look at them and declared them to be crap. I then bought a pair of Columbia boots that were twenty bucks cheaper. Hunted with them this afternoon. What a difference! They are really comfortable ... and my feet were pretty tender from wearing those other junkers. Put them through the waterproof test in some tulies and they passed with flying colors. I'll give em a few more days before I pass judgment.
