The Fremington Mens Boot

2-3 Season Men’s Walking Boot

The Fremington Mens Boot

2-3 Season Men’s Walking Boot

The Men’s Fremington is a classic British design 2-3 season walking boot, ideal for use in typical mixed UK terrain and climates.

The slightly above ankle height of the soft nubuck cuff allows for adequate freedom of movement when walking, but still provides support on more uneven ground.  The midsole is 2-3 season support for mixed terrain, and the classic Vibram sole has a midlayer of lower density PU, which provides comfort and shock absorption on harder ground.

CHANGE OF SOLE ON ALTBERG FREMINGTON HIKING BOOT

Vibram have discontinued the sole (Werewolf) we have been using on the Fremington Hiking Boot, and at present they do not have a replacement. As a temporary measure you will find a different sole and rand (Vibram Masai) on some sizes of Fremington where we no longer have stock of Werewolf. The sole Vibram Masai is tried and tested and we use it on our more expensive boots, e.g. Tethera.

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.
