Does Not Deserve The Name CornstalkerI'm a long-time Rocky dealer. I think the name Cornstalker is like a hallowed institution. It was the first all nylon-upper (I.e. little or no leather) waterproof lace-up boot on the market. It was a ground breaker that proved to be the biggest selling lace boot over a period of over a decade our family business had ever seen. The uppers were absolutely perfection: breathable while waterproof, resistant to all chemical and organic substances (i.e. animal waste & a variety of caustic liquids), and as comfortable as leather. The only weak link ever was a succession of soles starting with Vibram and morphing into Rocky's own several generations. The problem with all of these soles were they were made of PU (polyurethane) and almost all suffered from pre-mature failure while the uppers remained unscathed. If Rocky would have put a simple rubber sole and ditched the PU this would have been a perfect boot for a wide spectrum of uses. Rocky...are you reading this? It's time to re-introduce the original Cornstalker with an improved rubber sole. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF PUTTING A HEAVY LUG SOLE ON THE CORNSTALKER. No, it needs modest bar cleats like the original as folks hate carrying around dirt and mud and many will never hunt using the boots for work instead. I have customers looking for the original every week and, sad for me I don't have them looking for any one other single Rocky products save some that mention Cornstalker slip-ons and original Rocky Stalker lace boots. All of these Rocky products I've mentioned are strangely discontinued. Someone at Rocky needs to thing long and hard about reintroducing these and keeping them as close to the perfect originals as possible. Until that time there's only one company making an all nylon lace up boot in two models and colors. That boot is in no way as good as the original cornstalks and both have steel toes. Make America Greater Again...By Making The Original Rocky Cornstalker!!!
