Altberg Mens Nordkapp Boots

Season:W22

Brand:Altberg

Code:P-6783-88

Based on the tried and tested Altberg Tethera. The Nordkapp is a classic 3 season hill walking boot, suitable for Lakeland Fells and the Scottish hills.

The upper is a seamless one-piece construction, made from first grade 2.6mm Italian Nubuck, backed up by a Sympatex waterproof lining. Added protection to the upper comes from a full rubber rand with increased height around the toe and a higher collar gives excellent ankle stability. The underfoot support comes from a polypropylene, Tri-Flex midsole with a level 3 flex, which gives excellent torsional support and stability underfoot.

The main difference between the Tethera and Nordkapp is the fitting (last). The Nordkapp is made on the A-Forme foot shape, which has an asymmetric forefoot, increased toe spring and a narrower heel, providing a slightly lower volume and snugger fit than the Tethera.

If your priority is ‘wet conditions’ performance, you can treat the Nubuck upper with Leder-Gris. Once treated with Leder-Gris wax oil the upper will become more water-resistant, but please note the change in colour and finish, which becomes polished not brushed, is irreversible.

Technical Information
  • Upper Material: 2.4-2.6mm full grain Nubuck leather
  • Lining: Sympatex breathable 4 layer lining with military grade waterproof membrane interlayer
  • Midsole: Tri-Flex 3
  • Sole: Vibram Masai
  • Width: AForme*
  • Weight: 730gms (size 9)
  • Height: 16cms (size 9, including heel)

*The AForme refers to the more asymmetric shape of the last. Many of the features are taken from running shoe characteristics, a narrower heel and waist to hold and support the rear of the foot, an increased upwards toe lift (rocker), reduced sideways pressure on the large toe, and a wider forefoot with slightly above medium volume.
Sizing Information

Altberg sizes run true to size.

If you have Medium/ Wide feet - go up 1/2 size on your SHOE size (to allow for thicker socks with boots).

If you have Narrow feet - stick with your SHOE size.

Please note: This rule only applies with 90% of customers. We always recommend popping into one of our stores to get a professional boot fitting.

    So i am fussy about many things and shoes are one of them. I bought these after looking at many pairs and i love them. Dry, comfortable and well made. Great boots..done a few miles and they are gripping, dry, comfortable and the perfect size...i am a 8.5 and i chose 8.5 perfect fit. Team from Taunton gave good advice over phone and I bought them. Want a pair for my partner now! Very pleased

    I have never had a boot that fits as well as this, they are like a pair of comfy slippers! Ive only walked about 30 miles of coast path in them so far but they remain supremely comfortable and Id be really surprised if I get a blister now. Taunton Exeter staff were really helpful and I would highly recommend a visit to get the correct fit.

    First saw these boots reviewed in Trail Magazine, however, there are too few outlets selling them. Taunton Leisure dispatched my boots within the day and kept me informed of the delivery. Very professional. These are my first leather boots for a long time, having chosen lighter fabric designs made by Berghaus. However, I wanted a high ankle leather boot that I could attached crampons to. I have worn these boots a couple of time (walking 10 miles +) with no pinching or rubbing (I generally have issues near the medial malleolus), they are very comfortable and wholly water-tight. Great buy that should last me for a decade.

    Best pair of boots I’ve ever owned, over a 40 year period. Love the A form. Loads of room in the front. No slip in the heel. Really comfortable. Writing this after a year of owning mine. Still dry and warm.
