Goruck Macv Boots

MACV -1’s are suitable for airborne operations and maintain stability and support on uneven ground.

The 2″ webbing is sewn into the heel counter.

When you lace your boots up with your ankle locked into the heel, the heel counter and the 2″ webbing do not pull forward – this is by design.

The inspiration for MACV -1# was the most beloved boot in Special Forces history, the Vietnam-era Jungle Boot.

The push in Special Forces is always to sharpen the tip of the spear, in every way, about everything.

And with boots , everyone always wants them to be lighter, and more adaptable.

We live in our boots in Special Forces.

Our standard day is all the miles and a full load on our backs and our feet have to perform.

More support means more performance, especially when carrying 100lbs in a rucksack.

MACV -1, and all GORUCK footwear, is built to support you through the rigors of traveling, training, and rucking and comes with our Scars Lifetime Guarantee.

The overall look of the MACV -1 boot is really versatile, at least in our eyes.

We think they look pretty great in a polished or urban environment, and they obviously look right at home while outdoors.

But as #, The MACV -1 Rucking Boots were in development for four years and are the brainchild of Jason McCarthy (former Green Beret and founder of GORUCK ), Litchfield (30-year shoe dog and creator of the Reebok Pump), and Richard Rice (5th Special Forces Group, US Army 1966-94).

In June, 2018 GORUCK announced they were creating boots then posted up a pre-order with an anticipated ship date of October, 2018.

A few days after that pre-order went live I had MACV -1 boots in size 12, 13, and 14 ordered.

This post is going to be a long one (thousands of words) because there#s just so much to talk about with these boots.

This post will serve as an ongoing review of the GORUCK MACV -1 Rucking Boots and will be updated with significant events and experiences during my ownership of these boots.
