Rocky Boots, like so many other great businesses, started with a leap of faith. Brothers Bill and Mike Brooks loaded up their families during the Great Depression and moved to Ohio in search of new opportunity. The brothers began a shoe company that saw great success in constructing military boots to during World War II and the Korean War. Eventually, popularity of the boots grew beyond the military, and the Rocky Boot heritage began a new journey. In 1979, Rocky Boots began as a new line of boots with rugged, outdoorsy styling. As the hunting industry began to grow, so did the demand for Rocky hunting boots with waterproof and Gore-Tex protection. Today, Rocky Boots has expanded beyond military boots and hunting boots into a brand synonymous with rugged durability, quality construction, and functional protection for work or play. With a collection of purely western Rocky Boots, there are cowboy boot options for all types of ranch and farm work. As a long-standing work boot brand, Rocky work boots continue to offer plentiful options for those who work in the oil and gas industry, construction, or manufacturing. Rocky Boots is a name you can trust for all of your work and hunting footwear needs. With superior comfort, design, insulation, waterproofing, and durable construction, Rocky Boots can handle anything you throw at them.
