High Country Boot

The High Country Boot is a lighter weight, more versatile high leg country boot – suitable for a wide range of country activities.  The boot is suitable for a varied range of terrain and conditions – from Scottish Hills to Dales Moorland.  The high leg design gives good lower leg protection and ankle support, and the waterproofing is enhanced by the Sympatex® waterproof lining.


Level of Waterproofness

The High Country boot has a high level of waterproofing around the foot - however it is not a wellington and waterproofing in the leg and ankle area cannot be guaranteed.

In bad conditions gaiters should should always be worn to enhance waterproofing.

The High Country boots should be treated with Leder-Gris® just the same as a leather boot.

The High Country boot is made on the Altberg A-Forme® last (foot shape). This last has been developed over many years to give excellent comfort.

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
