“Love my hoplites! Highly Recommend! ” – SWW
“I recently field tested a pair of Altama Tan Desert 8” Hoplite Boots which is a fairly new boot. It is very comfortable and rugged. Most boots involve a break in period however, the Hoplite Boots have the feel of a comfortable pair of walking shoes. The Hoplite boots weigh about 3.70 pounds(for a size 9R pair) which is slightly heavier than the standard nylon desert boot which weigh about 3.44 pounds(for a size 9R pair). This slight increase in weight gives your foot and ankle more support. Unlike most desert boots, it has two side vents on one side of the boot, which is for draining the boot. The speed laces make a breeze to put on. The sole is called shark sand lug which was specially designed for sand. The sole will also help keep the heat from the desert off your feet. The boot has a removable insole which is replaceable. With so many shoes made overseas, this boot is made in the United States. The Hoplite boot is approved for wear with the Army uniform. While no one pair of boots can meet all the different environmental and terrain demands, the Hoplite boot excels for the desert. I recommend it highly as the support and design is a quantum leap from the nylon desert boots I wore in Iraq. ” – MAJ (ret) Eric Shuler
“I am a 20 year Army man and this is the Best Darn Boot I have ever worn. This boot and Innersole has put “Swag” in my step. Feels like I am walking on a very firm shock absorbing pad.” – LTC J
