There are really only two major requirements for a good hiking boot, traction and comfort. Rocky has developed a boot that exceeds expectations for both of these requirements, with the RidgeTop Hiking Boot. Constructed of a durable mix of leather and nylon, the RidgeTop is built for the use and abuse that comes from miles and miles in treacherous terrain. The Vibram outsole features an aggressive tread pattern and an oil and slip-resistant nature, to keep you on your feet. The Rocky Air-Port ventilated footbed provides more than generous comfort and allows air movement, to help keep your feet dry and comfortable. The guaranteed Rocky Waterproof protection ensures that your feet will stay dry, despite wet conditions. The reinforced toe plate and heel gives your feet the necessary protection they need when climbing steep grades or walking over unforgiving elements. Boots feature 6 rows of laces. Note: top two rows are not speed laces.
