Altama – Temperate PRO-X

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Altama is working on a new version of their PRO-X boot. The original is a straight up Jungle Boot design but this new model combines the US Army 8″ Temperate upper with the PRO-X sole system. It incorporates a direct attach polyurethane midsole which uses Dual Density Technology with comfort pods.

As you can see, it incorporates the classic Panama tread which remains the best sole for use in the jungle due to its ability to release mud.

Altama Maritime Assaults – Military Morons Edition

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Yesterday, I received this note from Military Morons.

As you may guess, the Altama Maritime Assaults have been my favourite everyday wear footwear, for many reasons.

A couple of months ago, I thought it’d be cool to have some Altama Maritime Assaults in an OD/Black colour scheme, inspired by the classic Vietnam Jungle Boots. I asked them about it and they liked that idea, and put in the order for the samples. I also requested that these come without the large pull loops in the back. They went a step further and put my militarymorons skull logo on my one-of-a-kind samples.

Whether these eventually become a collaborative special edition, or a standard colour offering from Altama, I thought you might like to throw these pics up on SSD.

So what do you think? Should they produce a run of these Military Morons special edition Maritime Assaults?

O P Tactical – Altama Jungle PX Boots

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

The other day when we mentioned the reproduction, 1st pattern Jungle Boots, several readers were disappointed that their sizes weren’t available. As many of you agree with me that the green USGI Jungle Boot was the greatest issue footwear ever, I thought I’d share these babies, offered by O P Tactical. Granted, they have the padded collar, added in the early 80s, but this is still a great boot. One thing I really like about them is they’ve Replaced the old anti-punji stake metal plate with a LENZI non-metallic L-Protection anti-penetration board which uses pre-treated ceramic and high tenacity fibers.

Yep, that’s a genuine Panama Tread Direct Molded Sole. That’s becuase these are made on original Ro-Search machinery. Ro-Search was a business unit of Wellco Boots and Original Footwear owns both Altama and Wellco.

OP Tactical Has Altama Maritime Assault Boots – Low, In Stock

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

It seems like we've all been waiting with bated breath for Altama's new line of Maritime Assault Boots to hit the market, but they finally made it.

With Uppers made from 1000D Cordura, they are fin friendly and incorporate mesh drain holes. The sole system includes a removable Ultron PU insole, full-length one-piece ABS shank for stability and support when climbing a caving ladder, and sticky SEAL Rubber outsoles with a Panama tread pattern.

They are offered in MultiCam, Black and Coyote. These are full-size shoes (7-14) with no half-sizes, so it's best to size up.

So far, O P Tactical has the low top model in stock. Look around the web and you should be able to find the mid-top soon as well.

Altama’s OTB Maritime Assault  Boot Wins NAUMD’s Best Footwear Innovation Award

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

THE MOST ANTICIPATED TACTICAL FOOTWEAR OF 2017

OTB Maritime Assault Boot, Winner of NAUMD’s Best Footwear Innovation Award

img_8743.jpg

Morristown, TN – May 5, 2017 Since its first public appearance at SHOT Show this past January, the Altama OTB Maritime Assault boot has been widely discussed at tactical gear shows worldwide. The OTB Maritime Assault Boot was designed specifically to replace the old school canvas style shoes commonly used by Navy SEALs during OTB operations. At first glance, the OTB Maritime Assault Boot looks like a typical sneaker, however closer review will show what makes the shoe worthy of elite operators.

Strategically placed drainage ports at the forefoot flex points of the boot helps water drain immediately after exiting the body of water. The water friendly materials feature low absorption and faster dry times. The SEAL rubber sticky outsoles allow for extra grip on slick surfaces and full length one piece ABS shank provides stability and support – making it easier to climb caving ladders. The slim design is specifically for the boots to fit into dive fins used by militaries worldwide. Inevitably, the OTB Maritime Assault has already adopted the nickname “Combat Chucks.”

“We are honored that our boot won the Best Footwear Innovation Award at NAUMD. We want the OTB Maritime Assault Boot to be known as the most badass sneaker in the world,” said Kevin Cole, CEO of the The Original Footwear Co. The OTB Maritime Assault will be released in low cut and mid height versions. The boots will initially be available in Black, Coyote and Original Multicam®. Cole said, “We’ll be releasing more colors at a later date.”

Customers can expect to the OTB Maritime Assault boots on shelves and online beginning in August, 2017.
