Hot Weather All Black Jungle Boot with Panama Outsole

Hot Weather All Black Jungle Boot with Panama Outsole

Style #9189



One of the original-generation Tropical Jungle Boots. The DMS vulcanization process is used to attach the rubber Panama outsole to the upper. This process creates a bond of unprecedented strength. Featuring an upper of black full-grain leather and 1000 Denier genuine Cordura nylon fabric, this boot remains a mainstay combat boot in many foreign militaries (friendly to the USA, of course).

Fit is consistent with standard issue military footwear. Boots should be purchased a full size smaller than casual shoes.


Military specification oil, acid, and slip resistant vulcanized rubber Panama outsole

Closure System

Nylon coated speedhook & eyelet lacing system


Removable cushion polyurethane sock insert




Made in USA


Sizes available: 5 - 12, 13 R & W


Black full-grain leather and Black Cordura(TM) upper with padded collar


Nylon coated brass drainage vents promote rapid drying in wet conditions

As good as it gets. THE classic jungle boot. Light. Breathes. Just outstanding. I have worn them for 30 years in the heat of Texas. McRae is, I believe, the last manufacturer in the US.

First time buying McRae jungle boots and am VERY impressed! Very well-made, heavy duty stitching, eyelets and overall construction----super quality to say the least. And super fast shipping! These aren't your average eBay jungle boots made in China by any means. When it says to order a full size smaller than your casual shoes, believe it. I wear a 11.5 reg' and the 10.5 reg' boots I ordered fit PERFECTLY. If you want good boots, get 'em here!

As a flat footed person it seems hard for me to find foot wear that doesn't hurt my feet after awhile, especially in boots. These are definitely not hard on my feet and are well made. I have owned more expensive foot wear that does not have this level of quality. The only thing I will point out is the website says order a full size smaller than normal footwear. I did not need to do this. I got what I normally wear and they fit just fine and feel completely comfortable.

After wearing these boots every single day for over four years, I'm finally ordering my second pair. -Not that the pair I have now NEED to be replaced, though. They still serve me very well. I'm just ready for a new pair on the basis of aesthetics after I gave these everything I could. Altama makes nearly identical boots that didn't last half as long on me. The soles on these are made of the toughest and longest-lasting material I've ever worn on a combat boot. There are no issues with them separating from the rest of the boot. Like the product name says, they're suitable for hot weather, even the rural Arizona desert that I live and work in. They're comfortable, too. Never felt the need to buy additional insoles for them. The Cordura uppers held up like they'll last a century, leather parts hold their shape and look fine- no problem with basic care every few months (don't use wax-based "polish" on any leather footwear, though), and the brass fittings still only wore through their coating in a few places-- And I put these through a lot hiking and working over rough granite and through thick desert brush on a regular basis. Only complaint is that I had to stitch the strap up the back of the boot back on in one spot right above the leather where my ankle flexes. I probably didn't even need to, but some rudimentary mannish stitches with heavy duty thread did the trick permanently for just a few minutes' work. Mind you, that repair only came to my attention after a few years of abuse. All-in-all, I am done shopping around through various brands to find the best Vietnam-style jungle boots. Even polished this pair to a nice shine for my sister's wedding, as I only made my plans to arrive last-minute and lacked dress shoes. Proud to do so, and proud to be ordering my second pair now. 100% recommended.
