My Actifit Report Card: Working in the new tactical boots - August 18 2019

in actifit •  last year 

Wicked time for a loaded walk. Just recieved my new tactical boots (Rocky SV2) and they needed a good working in before I really need to rely on them. They are probably the best boot every I’ve had. I went on a 10K wet walk to bust them in.

A what? I went for a loaded walk with soaking wet boots. I find the wet method of breaking boots in the quickest and the best for a nice long term fit. Here’s what I did.

  • Soaked my boots in the wash basin, made sure they were nice and wet.
  • Dumped out the excess water
  • Threw on two layers of sock
  • Tossed the sopping wet boots
  • Loaded up - 50lb small pack
  • Walked for 10 K

It was a great day to go for a walk, a wee bit warm and humid (high 20's) and I managed to get the walk in, between storms.

Love this photo... shows the storm that just passed.

The boots, albeit wet, were awesome and pretty damn comfy. I was expecting some blisters as I was pushing a 9 minute, 30 second pace per K.

Amazingly enough, not one blister. I kept them on for a while after the walk. They had pretty much dried by time I was back.

I'm pretty pleased with the boot so far, have to see how it performs in the field now.

Anyhow, stay fit, stay healthy!

Nice job breaking in boots with no blisters on a long walk!

For sure... Always worry about that with new boots. Even with my older boots I'd have hot spots on a walk like that.

@jasonbu judging by the image and all the writing and the steps you have taken you have made a magnificent walk.
Thank you very much for sharing this experience with the use of your boots
I wish you a wonderful day dear friend

Time I don't go for walks and hikes.

I need that intimate contact with nature.

pd: maybe I'll be encouraged by this.

I hope so. It's a good time to think and listen to music or pod casts. I do alot of thinking on the hikes. :-)

You have to push yourself for sure... Not always easy - you can do it, just stay motivated.
