Desert Mil Spec Combat Boot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sleek, flexible, lightweight heat-venting design beats most other hot weather boots out of the market. Oldie but a goodie. I was fortunate enough to snag a pair of unscuffed, odorless vintage Altama Hot Weather Jungle Boots today, second-hand for about $12 US. These babies are still selling secondhand for upwards of 40 dollars on the Internet. Happily, I intend to break them in if possible, as they cost barely more than some drop on a single pack of cigarettes. A good pair of boots can last for… Full review

8" Hoplite Boot

rated 4 of 5 stars The only reason I gave this boot 4 stars instead of 5 is because the heel cups are so high that they take a while to break in. I put on roughly 30 miles a week of ruck marching and these boots have held up very well. They are a tad heavy but it's not something that bothered me. I just looked at it as more training for SFAS. I highly encourage the purchase of these boots, but everywhere I have looked online they are ridiculously overpriced. The prices I have seen range from $135-$160. If you are… Full review

Desert Mil Spec Combat Boot

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought these Altama 4156 Desert Combat Boots in 1997 and have worn them almost every day. It's hard to imagine anyone being any harder on boots than I am. I've hiked for miles across the hottest deserts of Arizona, climbed rugged and rocky terrain--they're practically indestructable! Even after seven years of tough abuse, they still have more left in them. They are extremely comfortable, give great support and stability. No wonder they're used by the greatest military in the world. Full review

Desert Mil Spec Combat Boot

rated 4 of 5 stars The Altama 4156 are the first pair of "real" combat boots I bought. At the time, I was a student in New York City, doing a LOT of walking around Manhattan. Although designed primarily for hot/dry weather, the 4156s perform quite well in most weather, except for heavy downpours. I've even worn them in snow! The boot's upper, being made of primarily durable Cordura nylon, is quick to conform to your feet, and break in time is quite short. They are also quite light, and out of all the boots I own,… Full review
