Mid-ankle hot weather boot

Desert Tabbing® Boot - MOD Brown

The Desert Tabbing® Boot MOD Brown is a mid-ankle boot & the latest development in Altberg’s hot weather range.


The key to the design is the new ergonomic last on which the boot is made.  The shape is based on a running shoe last, but has been adapted to incorporate all the features required in a lightweight military boot. The last/fitting is the new ergonomic A-FormeⓇ, which allows the foot to take up its natural alignment in the boot, whilst supporting the arch and instep during the walking gait.


The boot design is based on the Desert Microlite which has been in production for over 15 years and has been used in hot climates all over the world. The non-waterproof Cambrelle® lining along with 1000 denier cordura, makes this an extremely breathable hot weather boot.

The Desert Tabbing® Boot is made of suede with a Cambrelle® lining, this gives maximum breathability. The use of Leder-Bök® will help sustain this breathability. It is a hot weather design.

  • Allow boots to dry very slowly – if in hot conditions put a damp cloth over the boots to slow down the rate of drying  
  • Spray all over with Leder-Bök® – both suede and fabric
  • Spray twice into stitched seams and areas where boot flexes
  • Use of Leder-Bök® may darken the suede, but breathability of the boot will be sustained


  • The Desert Tabbing Boot is not designed for wet outdoor conditions
