Altama has a long history of supplying military boots. The company was founded in 1969 in Darien, Georgia USA. Originally a children’s shoe factory, the facility was converted to manufacture olive drab jungle boots for US Soldiers serving in Vietnam. Since 1969, ALTAMA has been a manufacturer of Mil-Spec boots for the US Department of Defence, supplying to thousands of military personnel worldwide. In addition to the US Military, ALTAMA markets and distributes its products to federal, state and local agencies, military schools, police, Special Forces, uniform shops and Army/Navy retailers.
With the Exospeed II Altama offers a different breed of tactics, a military boot crossed with a running shoe. The Altama Exo Speed II is the hybrid military boot that is light than most on the move. Rather that you tradition heavyweight stomping boot, the Exo Speed II is full of materials you would find in the latest cross-country sports shoe. The end result is an extremely lightweight tactical boot that feels almost like a running trainer.
Are the lightweight materials a trade-off, sacrificing weight for durability? The weight of the Exo Speed II is an evolution of the traditional military boot and not a replacement. This newer style of tactical boot can still be worn on operations and yet is an ideal solution for anyone looking to save weight. A perfect boot to use during those long training sessions and pack runs. Rather than replace what’s on the market already, it’s an option to suit individuals with specific training and operational needs.
