Shane Rickly puts his Rocky Boots to the test. From the mud and muck of the barn, to the intense competition of the bull-riding arena, Shane expects his boots to not only keep up with his busy lifestyle, but to help him perform better. He shares with us his review of the Rocky Original Ride.
“Being a bull rider means diligence and toughness is in my nature. I’m constantly out working on my farm. There is always something to do, whether it’s putting up hay, branding calves, fixing fence, conditioning the horses or maintenance on the barns and equipment. Since I’m always on my feet and on the go, I need a pair of boots that can keep up with me and my hardworking lifestyle.”
In a boot, I need it to be tough enough to handle whatever I put it through, while still able to provide me lasting comfort so I can make it through the entire day on my feet. The Rocky Original Ride is this boot.
The Rocky Original Ride is the perfect balance between durability, stability, and comfort. The root of the balance is found in its main feature, the 8-layer Rocky Original Ride performance system. The 8-layer system incorporates the dual-density polyurethane Ride footbed with heel stabilizer, the tempered steel stabilizer shank, and an oil and slip resistant rubber outsole with a 1 ½ in heel; all of which improve the traction for your every step to securing the proper footing while working out on the ranch.
The durability is bolstered from the full-grain leather upper and its all-around welt construction. Furthermore, many of these Original Ride styles feature the Rocky Guaranteed Waterproof system. It is offered in pull-on or lacer styles with a variety of color combinations and options of protective toe or non-protective toe. For those who are looking for a dependable boot they can work in comfortably, there is only one answer, the Rocky Original Ride.
