Goruck MACV-1 boots, after 2 years of hard, everyday use ...

I purchased them in November 2018, mainly for my work where Iím standing and walking all day, every day.
(Well, about 10 hours a day, 6 days a week.)

The soles, obviously, got worn out.
You can see, in the video, they are now almost completely bald.

Still, they provide decent traction.

I can still crime on the wall.

Screen Shot 2020-11-08 at 10.25.56 PM

(Err, Okay, they are slipping a little bit. But, I can still do it.)

Thereís no damage on upper portion of the boots.

Most shoes and light weight boots get some sort of damage on upper, by this time.

Look at the Marrell in the video, they are very gently used compared to MACV-1 , yet, they already developed the holes inside.

Typically, upper gets cracked, holed, loosing shape, but MACV-1 boots are perfectly fine, thereís virtually no damage.


I had to replace the lace, after 18 months or so.

Will I buy them again?

YES. I WILL.

Would I recommend them?

YES. Whoever you are, whatever you do, if you are on your feet for long period of time, many days, and looking for quality foot wear, yes, these boots are highly recommended.

Are you a burglar?
Why you not double tie your laces.

I am significantly more impressed by whatever that downspout is made out of.

At the end of last year, I ordered two new pairs.
Origins Edition (olive drab + black leather) and Black leather and Gum sole .

Screen Shot 2021-01-03 at 2.26.50 PM

Screen Shot 2021-01-03 at 2.37.06 PM

Gum sole doesn't give extra traction.
But, they look cool.


The traction test tells you a lot.

Screen Shot 2021-01-03 at 2.26.29 PM

These new pattern soles are excellent.
(It doesn't look like it, but "traction test" part was shot just before sun going down.
I had to be careful not to be mistaken as a burglar.)

Right after I finished filming that evening (Sigma 16mm f/1.4)

But, GORUCK gave me 15% off, which is cool, I guess...

+1. Metal and "f_ck-yeah" are apparently a new alloy.
