Altama Maritime Assaults – Military Morons Edition


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?

    Absolutely want. Looks great in OD/BLK.

    The Dream: Altama makes some MAs highs styled similarly to the Nike Vandal so I can relive all my Terminator 1 fantasies.

  2. Ho Tac says:

    MM, I told you last week I wanted a pair! Make it so!
    Your overlord,
    Ho Tac

  3. Tim says:

    Id buy a pair!!!

  4. Joe Shmoe says:

    I’d definitely buy a pair.

  5. 3isen says:

    MM Altama’s….sign me up!

  6. Alex says:

    The OD definitely evokes the look of WWII era dive shoes.
    As someone who already has the high tops in black, I’d buy ’em in OD…
    Although I’m still waiting on the white sole colorway as well…

  7. Al marvelli says:

    Could we just get them in the military extra wide size??

    Any color just the same size as the actual military product??

  8. Hodge175 says:

    I really like them and would absolutely buy a pair of them. I have the all black mids and wear them almost ever day.

      How do the sizes run? I don’t think I can get them at a store around here and I’m a bit worried about ordering a pair and having to send them back. Thank you.

      • AbnMedOps says:

        Sizing is totally off. I normally wear 9 1/2 in civilian shoes and ALL other military boots, but after trying several pair (wearing socks) I settled on size 11! (mine are not the “MM Edition”, but I presume they are sized the same way). Good thing I made the pilgrimage to a shop in Raleigh.

  9. Andy says:


    ESPECIALLY with the skull logo.

  10. Jacob Schmidt says:

    Yes make them if order both high and low version

  11. Judah Schaap says:

    Yes please. Reminds me of my slowing dying pair of OTB Abyss.

  12. AlexC says:

    Throw up a crowd-funding and/or pre-order page and have people put their money where their mouth is to see just how many can you will really sell.

    Additionally, I also would buy a pair.

  13. BAP45 says:

    Reminds me a lot of the WWII jungle shoes.

  14. Joe says:

    Yep, I’d get a pair

  15. Ross B says:

    Hell yes. Cool Kicks!

  16. Gabe says:

    Hurry up…my Vans are wearing out!

  17. 96C says:

    I would definitely buy these over the coyote and multicam versions… These are awesome for all manner of shenanigans.

  18. BCP says:

    Want! Please encourage them to do this for the rest of us.

  19. SVGC says:

    Definitely make these, they’re rad. But keep the pull loops. Putting these on wet without the loops would blow.

  20. Rkkafkknsn says:

    Count me in

  21. Luke says:

    How is this not the first color they made? Looks great, and at that price looks like a hell of a deal.

  22. Major_Northeast_City says:

    I purchased a pair of low tops in Crye Precision camo when they were released last summer, I had to return them as there were uncomfortably very narrow.
    Perhaps they’ll make the O.D.’s. in a wide.

  23. Strike-Hold says:

    Those are rad as F###!

  24. Samuel Suggs says:

    I want these shoes

  25. Rob says:

    I know it’s been around a long time and it’s too late to change it, but “Military Morons” is a terrible name.

  26. Medic64 says:

    Fuck those are badass. Shut up and take my money lol

  27. Dan says:

    YES !!

    Have them in Multicam, the green / black looks great

  28. Ed says:

    All in!

  29. TACPJustin says:

    MM, I will def order a pair if you end up having them made.

  30. MED says:

    I love the two tone. I’d like to see the two tone in coyote and other color scemes

  31. Bradkaf308 says:


  32. Mike says:

    My black low-cut OTBs are my everday shoe. Comfortable, zero-drop, resilient. Just wish I could get a pair in Multicam Black.


  33. hodge175 says:

    Any new update on these going into production?

  34. Praharin says:

    Shut up and take my money! These are the best all around shoes I’ve had in a long time. I keep wanting to order a lifetime supply just in case. But these… it’s a shame about the loops though. I like them.
