My fourth pair of Altbergs and they continue to be great boots from the get-go. Shame I forgot to order Leder Gris at the same time!
I wear them for work and I do a lot of hours walking around in them not once have they hurt my feet. Would recommend them to anyone that works long hours and walks long distance aswell
Excellent quality boots and comfortable from day 1. As a first-time customer, I didn't know what to expect with regard to service. No need to worry - absolutely spot-on! Next day delivery, as promised, and Carol in Customer Services was exceptionally helpful - a real star! Would certainly recommend. Many thanks.
The boots were great quality unfortunately they did not fit as I required a wide fit which is not in stock.
I returned them and received my credit immediately by return.
I will watch the stock for when the wider fit is next in
Bought these boots a month ago and they arrived very quickly (thanks Military Kit). They replaced a pair of Clarks waterproof ankle boots I'd had for over 10 years and resoled often but were retired when the leather upper finally split. Like them, I needed a multi-purpose boot I could live in 10 hours a day, use hard, look after and resole when necessary. These look to be fitting the bill, the grip is great, they have not yet let water in (I've been treating them to Leder Gris every couple of days to keep them that way hopefully), they're snug and higher than I'm used to, but no corns or blisters. Finally Altberg offer a comprehensive care service to recondition their boots when necessary. So well happy so far and looking forward to the next 10 years fingers crossed.
Arrived early and intact. Fitted perfectly and look the business. Would definitely recommend both company and boots to friends
Quick and easy to use website - boots arrived quickly - really good quality - great fit - very comfortable
Perfect boot for frontline emergency services. Only boot that I find works with Achilles issues due to the soft leather. 100% recommend for all day use and comfort.
I normally wear lowa boots for walking and they're what I'm used to, they fit well although are a little heavy. I now needed a lightweight pair of boots for a job. After finding out that lowa elite light were now discontinued in black, I decided to try the altberg sneeker. Altberg are reputed to have slightly narrower sizing than altberg, but military kit said that I could return them if they didn't fit.
Once I got the boots, they were true to size, the same as lowa, but only slightly narrower. I would say length wise, the fit is great, width wise, it made the lowa's seem too wide and clunky.
A beautiful pair of boots. Would be even lighter if I bought the non aqua.
The boots seemed very well made but I had to return as they didn't fit my feet properly as I have wider feet. The shop was extremely impressive, posted my order within hours and reimbursed me within hours of receiving them. Brilliant service just a shame they didn't fit!
