Gahhhhh! No Rocky Eliminators!

Time for new boots and my favorite Rocky Eliminator II boots are apparently discontinued. Gahhhhhh! Now I need to find an equivalent type duty boot.

Sigh. You get used to one type of boot and they go away . . . .

Their quality has been lacking since a few years ago...my 1st 2 pairs lasted 5 and 6 years...my 3rd pair lasted less than a year.

I like the 5.11 boots (am an EMT, not LEO)

Yeah, my last pair has been the worst. Sides started peeling from the leather lower after about 9 months. Problem is, they have been the most comfortable boot I have worn. Now I will have to expand my duty boot horizon if Rocky has "eliminated" them (fun play on words there CJ).

I prefer the 8 inch height with Gore-Tex (considering our weather and environment) so I'll poke around.

A few guys just started wearing ridge boots. They look pretty nice, 8" polishable toe, waterproof, and i believe they offer gore tex. I'm looking pretty hard at the air-tacs. A few guys at work wear them and say they are very comfortable.

If you find footwear you like, always buy several or more. They eventually will go out of production or be outsourced and you'll be unhappy.

Yeah, I know. I figured that with their popularity with Rocky, they would be a staple like the Acadias.

Maybe it's just me, but I keep finding myself coming back to the 5.11 ATACs for work.
