The Altberg Nordkapp boot is a traditional leather walking boot that is a strong and durable, but tries to maintain as low weight as possible, it is fully waterproof 3 season boot. The upper is seamless one piece construction, made from first grade Italian Nubuk. Which can be waxed for ease of cleaning and to improve longevity. Added protection to the upper comes from a full rubber rand with increased height around the toe. Very nice leather padding around the ankle, and the design that gives excellent support on rough terrain. The last 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. This is the same last as employed in the Altberg Yan Tan model.
