GORUCK just dropped a new boot for rucking – the Jedburgh Ruck Boots.
If you are impressed by the MACV-1 boots, the new Jedburgh Ruck Boots will impress you even more. They use Deception Canvas™ for their upper and have 13mm heel-to-toe drop. These boots got their inspiration from the legacy of the 300 men selected as Jedburghs carrying a shared mission to release the free world from tyranny.
Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:
Jedburgh Ruck Boots – Overview
GORUCK is serious when they say these boots are adaptive to your wide spectrum of mission demands, so whether you are rucking or doing your everyday tasks in the most severe environment, you can rely on the Jedburgh Ruck Boots. The boots have a custom insert that uses a solid compression foam system and supports your whole foot from the heel to the toe, even the contoured arch support during the span of your foot strike.
The forefoot rubber is devised for improved grip, while the heel area is formed for abrasion protection and enhanced stability. The boots have a considerate forefoot area that allows your foot to breathe. Because of the duration and distance of any activity, your foot will get sore. But because the Jedburgh has more space, friction is lessened when your feet brush against the interiors of your boot.
Jedburgh has a 13mm ideal heel-to-toe drop offset which decreases the tension on your Achilles (and by proxy your ankle, knees, and hips) and helps to provide a consistent run in an unnatural world of asphalt and artificial surfaces. These boots are lightweight, and the EVA midsole and the rubber outsole have an excellent connection resulting in the superb performance of Jedburgh.

By design, the heel counter and the 2″ webbing of the Jedburgh Ruck Boots will not pull forward when you lace your boots up with your ankle locked into the heel. The outsole of these boots has a dual-compound rubber that gives a versatile performance in any environment, including enhanced traction on slippery and muddy ground. These boots use no spacer mesh to avoid the unnecessary weight and another good feature is there is no break-in-time as they are ready when you are. The 2″ webbing is sewn into the heel counter, making it fitting for airborne operations and maintains stability and support on rugged ground.
