The Malham Mens Boot

2-3 Season Lightweight Ergonomic A-Forme® Walking Boot

Malham is a lightweight walking boot, made using Alt-Berg’s revolutionary ergonomic A-Forme® last.

Altberg spent 3 years developing this last – the forefoot is asymmetric, with above average toe roll for ease of gait.  The heel is narrow fit, and the instep is contoured to provide increased lateral support to the foot arch.

The leather is Nappone – soft, supple,  water repellent, full grain leather.

The midsole is 3 season with good torsional resistance.  Flex resistance is suitable for mixed terrain hill walking, and the sole is Vibram® Masai, with a micro midlayer to give shock absorption on rough and hard terrain.

The boot is extremely lightweight and a full rubber scuff resistant rand protects the lower part of the boot leather.

Leather does not have to be completely dry before applying Leder-Gris®.  Leder-Gris® may still be applied when leather is a little damp

If leather is constantly going through a cycle of wet and dry, or if there are signs of ‘leather hardening’,  which can lead to ‘flex cracking’ – apply an occasional, ‘one-off’ treatment of Leder-Gris® Xtreme

All Altberg boots can be resoled at the factory, using the original lasts.  It is very important that resoling is carried out on the original lasts – the last helps the boot keep it’s shape, and correct fitting during the resole process.  It also enables the new sole to be pressed correctly, so the bonding of the sole to the upper takes place evenly over the whole of the sole and the sole edge.
