  • 3 out of 5 I've been wearing Altama's exclusively for about 5 years due to the fit. I started wearing the Ortho TacX (6in/Blk) about 2 weeks ago after my Exo Speeds finally bit the dust. I will concur with the previous poster on the squeaking. I'm not going to sneak up on anyone wearing these. Pretty comfortable though...

  • Great overall boot

  • 4 out of 5 Likes: rugged sole, small footprint relative to other boots that tend to extend out around the base of the boot. Very comfortable. Holding up well after a full year. Dislikes: Tend to squeak and make noise. Somewhat hot on the feet. The Ortho-Tac is a great boot overall.
