Fireforce Ventures is proud to carry Altama™ Maritime Assault Mid Shoes!
With the consultation of Special Forces operators, it designed originally for tactical water operations as a fin compatible midboot. Styled nearly identical to the Rhodesian “Takkie” or “Hockey Boots”, it can also serve as a stylish throwback to the footwear of your average Troopie.
Unlike the old Rhodesian canvas shoes, these modern day “Takkies” include some incredible 21st century features including:
Air mesh linings to help wick away moisture and sweat
Full length one piece ABS shank provides stability and support when climbing a caving ladder.
Non-shine rust-proof lace hardware.
Ultron PU contoured insole will not absorb water.
High abrasion quick drying 1000D Cordura quarter panels
Front non-metallic drain ports allow for water to drain easily when flexing the boots.
Whether you’re involved in some secret squirrel “underwater basket weaving” black ops, or looking for a modernized version of a shoe that Rhodesian Commandos were proud to rock in the bush, these shoes will be your best friend!
