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.
The boots are available in either MOD brown or classic Beige which are both fully compatible with MTP and Multicam Sizes are 6 to 13 and include half sizes, the width is medium.
British made boots by Altberg who make boots for armed services, police forces and emergency services the world over.

Really good fit and very comfortable. Really breathable and kept my feet cool. Outstanding boot and will buy again when these are done.
Excellent service. Rapid delivery. Product exactly as described. Thanks.
Size 9 medium Altberg desert boots fit perfectly.
My usual shoe size is size 9 euro 43 and these boots are a great fit.
Light weight but robust and sturdy with good support.
This is a second pair of Altberg boots that I have purchased and used. The first were jungle boots that I used straight out of the box! I very rarely would do that but at the time needs must and I had no blisters or rubbing. So this had prompted me to buy a pair of Altberg desert boots. While I have not had to use them in earnest straight out of the box the boots do have the same high quality and comfort.
I looked at a few other reviews and these boots seemed to come out on top.
The delivery service provided by Military Kit was second to none. Ordered at 11am arrived the next day at 10am! Can’t ask for more than that! Thanks.
Very helpful staff when confirming stock on the phone prior to online purchase. Bought boots at 1130am, they arrived at 0815 the next day. Great service
As predicted the boots are amazing and comfy straight out of the box. Would highly recommend them to anyone going somewhere hot and sandy. Brilliant service from MilitaryKit as well. Thanks.
Great boot, great fit, great comfort.
The boot is incredibly light, breathable, comfortable and appears to be durable. However I was expecting to receive a pair of boot spacers and spare laces as with every purchase of any decent boot but that was not the case.
