The Vietnam-era jungle boot silhouette has surely withstood the test of time, having been reinvented in one iteration after another by various brands who revere its quintessential backstory as much as they do its uber-grippy outsole. With the boot’s major prominence in the States, it’s only right for a Florida-bred brand like GORUCK to put their own spin on the classic with their incredibly durable MACV-1 boot.

While its smooth suede makeup may seem pretty metropolitan, you shouldn’t judge a boot by its upper, as the MACV-1 boasts an immensely durable 1000D CORDURA finish and 2-inch nylon webbing for optimized durability and ankle support. Sitting on an all-terrain outsole and cushioned EVA midsole, its lightweight composition contrasts its mega-sturdy ankle webbing and drain holes, the latter of which helps resist any dirt, debris, or moisture that you’re bound to stumble upon out on the trail. At the end of the day, though, comfort comes above all else, and the boots’ compression foam insert helps ensure that from heel to toe.

In case you’re in the market for a new pair of boots to survive the winter, then look no further than GORUCK’s Special Forces-inspired stompers. Available in a trio of colors that exude Americana to the fullest, pick up your favorite pair of the MACV-1 boots over on Huckberry for $155.
