Tactical Boots Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are my ALTAI™ boots waterproof?
    The ALTAI™ boots  are 100% waterproof. The ALTAI™ boots pass a 500,000 underwater flex test (equivalent to walking 50km) without any signs of leakage.
  • Will my ALTAI™ boot take a polish?
    Yes, the toe caps of the ALTAI™ MF Tactical boots (MFT100 & MFT100-S) are 100% full grain leather and designed for law enforcement officers who require their duty boots to have a polished toe. The rest of the ALTAI™ line is made with highly stain resistant SuperFabrt requiric® material, which does not a polish, in the toe cap.
  • Are my ALTAI™ boots stain resistant?
    The use of SuperFabric® materials in the ALTAI™ line of tactical boots has allows for a high resistance to stains. The SuperFabric® guard plates allow for extreme protection of the fabric underneath, which make it easy to clean and look brand new.

  • What is SuperFabric® and why is it such an important piece to my footwear?
    SuperFabric® materials are used in the upper and in some toe caps. SuperFabric® technology consists of highly abrasion resistant and durable materials that are made to withstand and conquer harsh environments and rough applications. The flexible fabric has an overlaid surface of tiny, evenly distributed plates of protection, creating an amazingly light and breathable material that dries rapidly and resists much of the normal wear and tear of daily use.
