ALTAMA was founded in 1969 in Darien, Georgia. Originally a children’s shoe plant, the facility was converted to manufacture olive drab jungle boots for US Soldiers serving in Vietnam. Since 1969, Altama has been a leading manufacturer of Mil-Spec boots for the US Department of Defense, supplying to thousands of military personnel worldwide. In 1991, following Desert Storm, Altama developed a line of high performance combat boots for civilian use with the traditional Panama sole. In 2003, Altama began manufacturing Original Ripple Sole Boots and was the first company to make them available for civilian use.
