The Altberg Keld boot is a traditional leather walking boot with a wide fit that is a strong and durable, but tries to maintain as low weight as possible. 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. Very nice leather padding around the ankle, and the design that gives excellent support. The last Alt-Berg ergonomic G-Forme, this is considerably wider fitting around the forefoot, while maintaining slimmer fit in the heel and overall more regular overall volume.

Made on the Alt-Berg G-Fit last the Keld is a wide fit, with significantly more room across the width of the foot. Moderately high volume and medium heel size for good fit and support for feet that are wide at the front without feeling too sloppy. Sizing tends to be true.
Suitable For: All walking in UK through spring, summer and autumn. Scottish hills and Lakeland Fells. Mountain trails and long treks. Great in muddy/boggy ground thanks to easy cleaning.
Recommended Care Product: Use of the Alt-Berg Leder Bok spray will keep the leather water repelent without changing the appearance. For enhanced waterproofing use Leder-Gris Original, though don't overdo it; little but frequent is the key. Leder-Gris will darken the leather and convert the nubuck finish to an oiled look, but this is preferred for ease of cleaning. A soft brush will make it a lot easier to apply.
