Even though summer’s still in full bloom, it’s definitely not too late to start looking for a great pair of hiking shoes for the fall season. We’re here to suggest the awesome Rocky S2V – a pair of kicks created by a brand that’s been manufacturing combat boots for the U.S. Special Ops since World War II. The shoe actually incorporates some of these high-end technologies, which can now enable civilians to explore the great outdoors with confidence.
Flaunting an eye-catching black and red colorway, this shoe was put together using a breathable mesh and neoprene compression technology that supports performance without increasing sweat. Highlights include a quick lacing system with nylon pull loops at the tongue and heel, as well as a dual-density Vibram rubber outsole that’s incredibly grippy. Then there’s the EVA midsole that provides a plus of shock absorption and cushioning, which makes these some of the most comfortable hiking shoes available.
