The Men’s Tethera® is a classic 3 season hill walking boot, suitable for the Lakeland Fells, and the Scottish Hills.  The upper design is ‘Alpine Style’, which incorporates a seamless bellows tongue, in the one-piece leather upper, and the water repellency is ‘backed up’ by a Sympatex® waterproof lining, of bootee construction.  The underfoot support and protection is provided by the midsole, level 3 season, which gives excellent flex and torsional resistance, suitable for rough terrain.

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.
