We reported previously that Altama had some new versions of their popular Altama OTB Maritime Assault boots inbound. Well, it would appear there are a couple of special editions available too.
The first of these is the Soldier Systems Classic, an Altama OTB Maritime Assault boot in “Mid Wolf Grey.” The series is available in sizes 7 through 13W, and all proceeds will benefit the Pararescue Foundation.
These boots come only in – wait for it – wolf grey, and feature the SSD Classics logo on the tongue. These are the same ones teased back in January during SHOT Show.
The description is, in typical Tactical Distributors style, succinctly accurate.
“Military designed and tested, the Altama OTB Maritime Assault MID is the ideal tactical shoe for amphibious movements. This bad boy was made with the everyone’s love for Chuck Taylors kept in mind, and it comes packed with so much more.
It includes two drain ports that expel water as you walk and the shoe flexes, a one-piece ABS shank with no room to bend which gives you proper foot placement going up and down the boat ladders, and an Ultron PU contoured insole that doesn’t absorb water. 1000D Cordura fabric is on the side panels to reduce wear and mitigates water retention.
The idea behind the shoe is for users to have the ability to go from water to land with the same footwear. It is slightly more narrow than the classic Chuck to allow better comfort and fit while wearing a diving fin. Whole sizes only, if you wear a half size we recommend going up to the next whole size. Designed to be worn without socks (but obviously you can still wear them). Once you make it to land, kick those fins off and continue with your slaycation. If that doesn’t sound like a good time, we don’t know what does. Grab em, swim with ’em, take em Over The Beach.”
It’s hard not to want a pair of shoes intentionally made for a slaycation.
