OMAN DESERT MICROLITE COMBAT Boot
HIGH LEG MILITARY DESERT COMBAT BOOT - SUEDE & CORDURA®, ULTRA-BREATHABLE AND FAST DRYING, SHOCK ABSORBING SOLE
£164.99
Size:

Emembers discount available at checkout


DESCRIPTION

In addition to being incredibly lightweight the Oman Desert Microlite has a high leg which is unlined for minimal moisture retention and maximum breathability. The sole has strong torsional and flex resistance, ideal for rough terrain. The Micro layer in the sole gives excellent insulation from ‘ground heat’ as well as good shock absorption. Altberg made its first Desert boot in 1994 for a unit of soldiers from Catterick Garrison going on exercise in Oman. On their return they gave us some great feedback on improvements we could make, and that’s how the now legendary Altberg Desert Microlite was developed. In 2014 we received our first orders from the Oman for a slightly modified design of the Desert Microlite, ie, drain holes on one model, and covered hooks on all models, we have continued to receive their orders each year since.

Note, with suede boots and shoes, always dry slowly. Read the Suede Boots User Guide or click on the logo.

SIZE & FITTING ADVICE

For medium or wide fitting boots, we suggest that you go up ½ a size on your usual shoe size - this works ok in 80% of cases and allows for a thicker sock to be used with the boots. 

The following 3 widths - XN, N, XW, may be specially ordered from the factory. However, for special orders a factory visit may be required for foot measuring and trying on.
