Military extends deal with Rocky for Combat/Hot Weather boots

Rocky Brands Inc announced that it has received a $6.0 million extension to an existing contract in addition to a new $1.2 million contract from the U.S. Military.

The $6.0 million contract is an extension of a $6.4 million contract awarded to Rocky Brands in July 2007 for Army Combat "Hot Weather" boots. Shipment of the boots is expected to begin in early 2009 after the initial contract has been completed.

The $1.2 million contract is for Rocky's S2V tactical assault footwear developed specifically for U.S. Military Special Forces. These boots feature an outsole designed for foot stabilization and to reduce ankle rollover in sandy and rocky conditions.

In addition, they are treated for flame resistance and have SuperFabric instep panels that prevent rope burn from rappelling and other military exercises. The first order for $500,000 is expected to be delivered in fourth quarter 2008.

"Rocky is a proud supporter of the men and women serving our country and we are pleased to continue our relationship with the United States Military by providing U.S.-made footwear that is built to perform at the highest levels," said Mike Brooks, Rocky Brands chairman and chief executive officer.
