Altama makes GREAT boots. I love the look and feel of the old green jungle boots...
They are good boots and Ill take OD over stait blk any day ...I really like Panama soles above all others..I have an old pair of OD JBs that are dated 1972 (thats as old as me) and they are still rolling strong..
I'm with DM on this one... the Altama boots were the best, when they were the only ones out there... now a lot of companies make Jungle /Desert boots, and my Bellevilles are tops.. more comfortable then any other lightweight boots on the market that's I've tried... I'm still waiting to get the new Warrior Boots from BHI... but for the durability, and quality of the boots,and the comfort... belleville = Best

Well I also have a pair of Chameleon II gortex xcr, but not the stetch version.
They are a great shoe but during the winter time, medium weight(wool) socks are required. Another problem with them is that since they have a lug sole they are not the best grip on wet surfaces. Other then that I absolutely love them..
If you are looking for a trail running shoe, I wouldn't suggest a pair of these or this type. If it was the end of the world I would totally use my merrels but running fast or even moderet distance is out of the question. A good running trailshoe is something like a pair of Montrail Vitesse they are better for running and the heel is wider which can support the impact of running.. If you run all weather you can try any trail runner with XCR gortex. I never really liked these new hybrid type trail shoes but they are sized like sneakers and happened to be the best all around type of footwear you can purchase. And if you are practical like I am this type of shoe is for you...
