Sneak a Peek – Altama Urban Assault

Altama is expanding their Elite division to include a full Assault line, and the Urban is the first step in that direction.

The hugely popular Maritime Assault was originally intended for amphibious missions, to be worn sockless for quick dry capabilities and solid grip as you moved in and out of water and fins to foot traffic.

But customers started using them as a daily wear boot with tactical cred. Something for roping, as well as walking, for weightlifting and date nights, for the range and the office.

It will be sock ready with an antimicrobial land insole and reinforced heel lining, with a flex knit upper and a sticky rubber outsole that is designed for the ground you move on.

Available in mid and low heights for Black, Black MultiCam, Alpine MultiCam, and Alpine MultiCam CP (more on that later).

Want a closer look? Altama will have samples at SHOT SHOW 2020 in Las Vegas. Swing by booth #20149 and see what’s up.

    Awesome news, hope they eventually release these in coyote or OD and I’ll pick up a pair.

    That’s awesome! What about regular multicam though?

    Will they have a wider toebox? My were pretty righteous, and I’ll admit I was misusing them, but shoot if my toes didn’t get pinched in those puppies.

      Agreed. Personally would love to see a “foot shaped” toe box like Altras or Vivobarefoot.

      Sadly my Altamas are collecting dust since I transitioned to “foot shaped” shoes.

    Fuck ya! this is awesome.

    What the hell is Alpine MultiCam CP?

    • James says:

      Probably a fashion oriented pattern, but there are some potential gaps in the line- a rocky, evergreen, or woodland expansion of alpine? Alpine and Black have a lot of potential in the fashion industry, but it’d be cool if they came out with some gap filling patterns. Maybe CP is that or another optimization like the 2010 change in color and addition of vertical elements.

    Well now, that is good news.

    I have been dithering for some time whether to buy the Altama maritime ones but they were a tad too maritime for my tastes.

    With a pure Urban Model, I will not be dithering for long!
