Heritage Jump Boots from GORUCK

GORUCK is on fire with boot options – here’s the newest – the Heritage Jump Boots. The original Jump boots were first used by the 82nd Airborne Division and were distinct because of their solid toe caps and calf-length lacing. This gave GORUCK an inspiration for their boots but to put their signature in it, they use the supportive MACV-1 platform paired with the best materials, including the most rigid leather. The leather is from Rostaing Tannery, established in 1789 and family-owned since its origin. It is relatively small, exclusive, and only provides the highest quality and unparalleled leathers.
