ORWM – Altama

I was surprised to find Altama in the Mystery Ranch booth and even more surprised to get a sneak Peek of some new shoes being officially released at next week’s SHOT Show.

This is the Aboottabad (in honor of the location of UBL’s demise) series. It consists of a Trail Run Low and Trail Run Mid and a Mid to Heavy Weight Hiker.

All of the outsoles in this line get their DNA from the old Panama tread of the USGI Jungle Boot.

Here’s an OTB Maritime Assault Shoe in Low Viz colors.

    As a resident of the Pine Tree State, I thought OTB was bought by New Balance some years ago. I haven’t seen any of their products available for sale for some time. Is OTB now going to be offering their shoes again for sale through Altama? Perhaps someone out there may know what OTB is up to these days.

    The lines on that low cut show are extremely similar to the XA Pro 3D’s. If it works, it works, now guys that like the show but not speedlace or the French have other options. Unless these are made in France in which case you still have the conventional lace thing to look forward to.

    I realize you said sneak peak and all but i was hoping to see them on the website. Guess that’s why you clearly stated they would be released at SHOT

    Have they release any info on pricing or availability of the maritime stuff or is it still being held until SHOT?

    Sorry for asking but is there any such thing as low vis maritime assault? Or is it just marketing aimed at chuck taylor lovers navy type dudes?

      Someone asked for them. The shoe has all of the features of the other models, just with a different Camo job.

    Is it just me, or is white land/toecap the exact opposite color of low-vis? It’s the brightest color in the spectrum in the dark.
