The Altberg Website Has Been Updated
« on: 17:01:16, 01/12/19 »
The Altberg website has been updated https://www.altberg.co.uk/

One interesting point worth noting for those considering having their Altberg boots resoled is that it's now possible to have the standard height rand such as that used on the Tethera or Malham replaced with the higher rand as used on models like the Nordkapp and Kisdon to give better protection against scuffs, scratches and gravel rash particularly to the front of the boot for an extra 20 (15 for the standard height rand). NB This must be carried out at the same time as the resole. https://www.altberg.co.uk/boot-fitting/resoling

No I'm not and just to be absolutely clear I have no connection to the company whatsoever.

I have honestly found no boots to compete with the fit, build quality and longevity of the range offered by them from any other manufacturer (and believe me I've tried really hard) but if I was I'd be looking forward to your contribution.

Next pair of boots will probably be Alt-Bergs due to their longevity and absolute certainty of fit. And at my age hopefully they will last me until they get thrown into the oven with me.

I will accept you adding a codicil to your will leaving your new Altberg boots to me instead of sending them to the fiery furnace with your remains as that's just wasteful. PS Make sure you keep the bloody box as that will increase their resale value! ;D ;D ;D
