Keeping the foot in proper condition is not negotiable, especially when out on long hours of rucking.

The rocky S2v boots have a sieve technology incorporated into the design. This technology helps to improve the circulation of both moisture and air.

In wet terrains, this technology prevents water accumulation in the boot as it has moisture-draining power. While in hot terrains, this sieve technology helps prevent sweaty and soggy feet keeping the feet dry and comfortable.
