I am planning to hit the range in a few days. I take my Ford Maverick stuff with me.
Thanks. They’re Altama Maritime Assault Boots they come in a few different solid colors as well not just multicam. I like the multicam but they did just come out with M81 woodland so I’ll be picking up a pair for sure.

They have definitely started up some conversations with people.

are they comfy for someone 270 lbs to stand on the range all day?

With the right cushioned insole I would say sure. The longest I've worn them was 14 hours but that was not at the range just normal everyday stuff, in an out of vehicle, standing around waiting on people, walking up and down stairs, sitting behind a computer.

Longest I've used them at a range/training day was four hours and my feet were fine. Again, I had to put a cushioned insole in them after I got them to make my feet happy.

The thing I like about them the most is they are easy to clean up and maintain. They get real muddy take the garden hose to them and they dry pretty quick.

One thing I don't like about them is they don't come in 1/2 sizes so you've got to round up to the next size.

Altama made them to work with dive fins. I guess you can come up out of the water, step right out of the fin and not have to take time to put on boots.

Off topic, but I have the Altima’s too. I use them on long range fishing trips and they are great. One thing about them that was a little annoying was the grippy interior surface. I needed to find synthetic socks to ease getting the shoes on... No cotton! I guess since they are designed for wet use, it makes sense. Someone toldme another reason for the grippy interior is so they can be used without socks.
