Cheap but functional — about what you’d expect, September 7, 2011

These boots are pretty much exactly what you’d expect for the price tag. I do not imply that they’re a waste of money or anything of that sort. In fact, I really like my pair. But they’re best suited for “cheap, knock-around boots” when you are looking for rather disposable clothing. I bought mine for paintball, knowing full well I will destroy them in months, and couldn’t be more pleased. Here’s everything I’ve noticed about them:

Overall construction:
-The stitching looks a bit light-duty. Expect some breakage in due time.
-Vent holes, eyelets, and canvas seem middle-of-the-line. Same as above.
-The laces that come with these boots aren’t actually boot laces. Think long shoelaces.
-Soles seem to be soft rubber that will wear easily. Conversely, the lugs are thick allowing for plenty of wear.

Fit and feel:
-These were designed to be worn with boot socks (two pair of socks will also suffice), meaning they will run big.
-Because of the above, they are also unlined. Without proper socks, they can have some hot spots that would no doubt blister, especially when new. Wearing thick socks or two pair eliminates this completely.
-They are extremely lightweight, great for all-day comfort. I was thoroughly impressed by this.
-Even with socks on and out in the heat, they seem to vent incredibly well. My feet never seem hot.

Consensus:
Great for occasional wear. If you just need a set of boots to get dirty, scuffed, torn up, and otherwise mistreated, there is no better deal on the planet. If you are looking for a genuinely hardcore pair of boots to break-in, take care of, do 30-mile marches in, and that you will miss when you must say goodbye, skip them.

UPDATE 11/23/2012:

To my surprise, they are still holding up quite well. I bought a pair of insoles for them — a must — but they aren’t torn up or ruined. Still using them for paintball.

I should have paid attention to the negative reports. A complete waste of money. You are better off giving the money to someone in need.

I bought a pair of these to take with me to the Boundary Waters (Northern Tier for scouters out there) on a 6 day canoeing expedition. If you buy them, take a thick roll of duct tape. You’ll need it.

By day three of our six day expedition in the boundary waters, I’d already lost the insoles and one heel was blown (glue completely dissolved). Thank you duct tape. Day 4, my other heel blew while carrying a 90 lb canoe over a half mile portage. Ever tried to walk with that much weight on your shoulders with one heel flapping and the other slipping around because the tape can’t hold it tight enough? It stinks. Duct tape roll now smaller. Did I mention that one of my scouts had the same boots and his blew on day 4 as well? I spent the rest of the trip taping on his boots and mine each morning, praying the duct tape roll would last. We hit the paper core on the last day.

Upon our return to base camp, I noticed the derelict pairs of ROTHCO jungle boots scattered around the grounds and abandoned in the corners of buildings. I mentioned it to one of the resident guides and they responded that they collected trash cans full of them each week.

Jungle boots have been on the recommended list of items to purchase for years. They are going to pull that recommendation based on the terrible performance of the boots.

My sons used their Redwing hiking and work boots. They had no issues (other than the work boots holding water and getting heavy) and they are still great for scout projects and stomping around with me. My wife picked up a pair of Montrail hiking boots at the Columbia Store. She’s hard to fit. She loved / loves them. They drained well and were ready for use the next day.

Moral. Don’t waste your money on ROTHCO boots. I’m not sure you even get what you pay for. I wish I could get my money back. I hope scouters and parents out there will read this and beware. Please don’t buy these boots.

I’ve owned these in the past.

I had a lot of back pain in the past, but not lately (last 5 or 6 years). I wondered if the back pain could be related to these boots.

My last set of boots (not these jungle boots) wore out too quickly and cost 3 times as much as these. So i bought another set of these jungle boots but this time i also bought a set of inserts for them. Superfeet Black Premium Insoles

Without the inserts, i was standing on concrete talking with a friend and starting to get back pain that reminded me of pain in years past. after i bought the insert things are much better. Although the inserts were more than the boots, both together are still much cheaper than the last non-jungle boots i owned. The jungle boots will last much longer too.

————————UPDATE—————————————————-

It’s only July and i have worn these out. There is a split through the bottom.

I mentioned that i’ve owned these in the past (above), but these are clearly not the same boots i used when i was in the military. They do look like the exact boots, but don’t last anything like the originals. If they were the same boots, they would have lasted years not 4 months. I can’t blame heavy usage for why these failed so quickly. I’m a computer tech, not a construction worker (which i’ve been in the past). My job wouldn’t wear these out so fast. Another detail about the usage of these boots, is that half of my time i’m usually wearing sandals. i only wear these boots when i work (4 days a week).

So long story short, these have to be made of very low quality material.

For those that care to know, you don’t quite get what you pay for with these. $27 is cheap, but you’d expect at least a year for cheap boots.

I don’t recommend anybody buying these.
