Yan Tan 2-3 Season Lightweight Ergonomic A-FormeⓇ All Terrain Boot

The Yan TanⓇ boot is a strong 2-3 season lightweight boot. The upper is a combination of Nubuk and Kevlar fabric, and the design of the boot gives excellent ankle support on rough terrain. 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 midsole is 3 season, with good torsional resistance and resistance to flex on rough terrain. The sole is Vibram® Tsavo, with a shock absorbing micro midlayer to give heel strike cushioning on rough terrain. Lining is Sympatex® waterproof breathable bootee construction.

DRY/MODERATE CONDITIONS

  • 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 Nubuk and Fabric
  • Spray twice into stitched seams and areas where boot flexes
  • Use of Leder-BökⓇ may darken the Nubuk, but breathability of the boot will be sustained

WET CONDITIONS

  • If your priority is to keep the boots water resistant then you can use Leder-GrisⓇ all over the boot
  • The use of Leder-GrisⓇ will change the appearance of the Nubuk significantly to a darker more shiny full grain leather appearance
  • Once you have used Leder-GrisⓇ then you must continue to do so – you cannot restore the Nubuk to the original appearance

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.
