    Something a bit special from Altberg-trip to Spain

    WJ no comments please,thank you.


    You won’t see these on the website,they are built to my requirements.

    based on the best bike boot you can get [the Hogg all weather],these have been made in suede with no gear change patch.
    they have the crush proof sole and ankle protection,even the footbeds for hot weather.

    there is slight marks on the suede they offered a price reduction or to make them again,that’s proper customer service.

    when I was in the Bardenas desert wearing black leather Hoggs it was like a flame thrower on my feet.
    these will help a lot unfortunately the diabetes is effecting my feet more and more.

    where else can you phone a factory and get something like this built to your needs?

    they went out of the way to get them to me before the factory closed as I was planning to go to Spain all of September.

    ive lost a lot of confidence [in many things] now and I am not sure I can do it or should go.
    Brittany Ferries say I can defer to next year for free but if I cancel I lose £400 plus.

    any way for now I am overjoyed with these boots,it’s like Aldershot in the early 70s again.
    all the sky pilots with very short hair wearing desert boots,straight jeans and maroon tops where aggressive paras starting fights everywhere.

    Bought the wench a pair of Altbergs when we visited the factory. They noticed I was wearing a pair and insisted on giving me a free pair of laces and a tin of Leder Grease - a proper company and good to deal with.

    Well spotted Andy,

    actually they aren’t suede you caught me in a lie,they are made from beige carpet tiles I got from the sale at carpet world

    I have a pair of Daytona Road Star boots which have been the best I've ever had (still 100% waterproof after 8 years) but I've heard nothing but good things about Altberg boots from everyone who's ever had them.

    I might make them my next one to get and see for myself

    I was going to ask why you didnt have the gear change patch fitted


    I think that's a nice gesture of the ferry company as well and if your treatment isn't bolted on to be sorted before September then I think that's what you should do - IMHO of course




    Altberg are indeed the dogs kahunas and I have a pair from 96 that are still going strong (been patched up and re-soled a few times by Altberg themselves)



    The only boot you good genuinely take out of the box and run a CFT in ………………..oh yes
