SuperFabric® Boot Technology


What is the ALTAI™ Outperformance Test™?

This test, very simply, asserts that ALTAI™ lightweight waterproof boots will outperform any other boots on the market in the combined areas of comfort, lightweight, and durability.

Custom Comfort

In addition to the comfort provided by lightweight, flexible, U.S.A.-made SuperFabric® material, ALTAI™ boots are built using a custom last that fits and feels just like a sneaker. When we combine these features with EVA midsoles and Vibram® outsoles, we end up with arguably the most comfortable boots on the market.

Speed Lacing

Most other boot brands claim to have a speed lacing system. ALTAI™ will challenge any of those brands to a race. The precise combination of Cordura® gussets, sausage link laces, metal eyelets (open eyelets at the top), and a secure, advanced rubber mudguard ensures the quickest tie, in a one-and-done fashion.

Durable and Lightweight
From the daily grind, to the deep woods, U.S.A.-made SuperFabric® material provides remarkably strong abrasion/scuff resistance, while it also maintains seemingly impossible light weight in ALTAI™ boots.
Water Resistant
The unique composition of U.S.A.-made SuperFabric® material is both water resistant and breathable, in that water molecules are too large to penetrate the material and will simply bead up on the surface, while air molecules are small enough to escape and will breezily flow in and out.
Stain Resistance

Regardless of color, U.S.A.-made SuperFabric® material is stain resistant and almost too easy to clean. ALTAI™ boots will clean up with a quick run of the hose and offer extreme quick-dry to boot.

Vibram® is a well-recognized and trusted name for quality and long-lasting outsoles that perform to the highest degree. Vibram® outsoles feature non-marking, slip-resistant compounds combined with wide perimeter lugs that perform consistently in both wet and dry conditions in a variety of terrains. The Vibram® TC4 Compound outsole is found on every ALTAI™ boot ensuring durable oil, heat and slip-resistant performance in a lightweight, and long-wearing boot. The TC4 Compound is also compliant for flight.
ALTAI™ boots made with SuperFabric® are a game changer in the performance footwear market. SuperFabric® is more than just a fabric—it’s a soft, breathable armor. A combination of simple fabric with durable guard plates creates this incredible material that can withstand almost anything. SuperFabric® resists stains, abrasions, and moisture damage, which makes it the perfect choice for our hard-working, performance boots. Whether you’re trekking through the muddy wilderness, working on a job site, or stomping through puddles in the city, ALTAI™ boots made with SuperFabric® survive it all.

Beyond Durability

SuperFabric® stands out from other footwear material because it offers more than durability. The unique fabrication prevents water from penetrating the exterior, but it also allows internal moisture to escape. With ALTAI™ boots, you’ll experience breathability that’s unmatched by any other high-performance boot. This is our game-changing difference—SuperFabric® promotes the perfect balance of lightweight comfort and impressive durability. Its versatility allows us to construct our boots in various colors and styles.

Science and Technology

This innovative material was born from thorough scientific and technological research. It was put to the test against blades and knives to ensure its slash resistance. SuperFabric® has made its way into many industries, but at ALTAI™, we love the way it feels on our feet. Once you experience our lightweight waterproof boots, you’ll never look back.
