Description

This all Suede military boot packs European spec 2.0mm full grain suede and is actually a MK 2 version from Altberg which was upgraded to give greater flexibility whilst walking and improved breathability. Coupled with a military grade Cordura fabric and a spacer meshtex lining across the forefoot and tongue offers practically 0% moisture retention

A relatively new boot from Altberg, you’ll see from the design it utilises similar characteristics as the Desert Microlite which is a tried and tested solution with over 25 years of pedigree. However the Base boot cut is a low ankle height specifically designed to greater greater mobility and torsional control of the foot. Given its design its likened to a running shoe with its narrow heel and waist set up, but offers the crucial ankle support whilst load bearing and over rough terrain

As with most Altberg boots they utilise the impressive new Defender high traction sole, which is fantastic for shock absorption on most terrains - ideal for tabbing and running

Please note that given suede design the material must be cared for, and Altberg recommend their Leder-Bok boot care. Also worth noting that suede does take longer to dry than leather

Size and Fitting Advice
Here at John Bulls we’d recommend you choosing a 1/2 size above your normal shoe size as this allows for a thicker sock to be used with the boot

PLEASE NOTE: Altberg started introducing their new Defender Hi-Traction Sole onto their boots in June 2022 with an aim to replace all Vibram soles by February 2023. Practically all our boots now have the new Defender sole and sadly we can no longer order them with the older Vibram versions - These Defender soles are a far better sole in our opinion and the valuable feedback we're getting back from our customers

So comfortable

A-forme boots. Built on a running shoe last. Very comfortable. Well built. I like the lock lacing system. Means the foot section can be nice and tight. I love these. Better than my AKUs. Great price. Quick delivery.

Nice little boot. Not the one pictured.

I was really hoping it was the older model with the rubberized fore foot/toe. They look better. It isn’t. Don’t know why they changed it. Likely wouldn’t have ordered if I had known.

So smart!

Top quality suede boot that looks the nuts in civvies - particularly beige jeans / cords! Could also run around an assault course - but probably best to be in the new ops boot for that. Excellent sole that would handle a Brecon track - and equally at home in an English country pub! Love 'em.
