The Altberg Microlite Desert boot is an absolute favourite with our Armed Forces when deployed in recent places like Afghanistan. This boot has been manufactured now for 22 years and was a favourite when our soldiers were being deployed to Iraq, Kuwait and even Oman.
These desert boots are made from tough full-grain Bovine suede and Cordura which makes them very lightweight and breathable. These lace-up 9 high boots also have padded tongues and collars for added comfort and they are both leather lined for extra durability.
Like most Altberg boots they have the ever-dependable Vibram soles which are designed to absorb shock, and they also have the Tri-Flex 3 season midsole which is great for heat transfer resistance. The Cambrelle lining offers great wicking and drying out as well as breathability.

Altberg Men's Desert Microlite Brown Boots
Really quick delivery- thanks!
I just love these boots, they fit so well, they don't chafe even when they are new, so much comfort and yet so supporting. I use them for hiking and for riding my motorbike. Just perfect!
They arrived very fast and are perfect size couldn't be happier. I also own the jungle version and they are still going strong after 8 years.
A truly fantastic boot. I know the factory of Altberg as I use to live in Richmond, North Yorkshire and have seen boots made there. You will love them, I cant recommend them too highly. MK brilliant to deal with.
Really easy to order , kept me up to date on every stage of the delivery and dispatched really quick. Amazing service
