The Alt-berg bootmakers have been manufacturing walking boots and hiking boots since 1989.
At their boot factory in Richmond North Yorkshire they manufacture trekking boots for all outdoor activities – Trekking boots, adventure travel boots, hiking boots and walking boots. The first walking boot manufactured by the Alt-berg boot manufacturing company was the rambler boot. A leather one piece upper with soft ankle cuff made for a traditional style rambler boot. Ideal as a walking boot for use in the Yorkshire dales or in the Lake District. The rambler boot was produced as the Alt-berg hiking boot company’s main trekking boot for a number of years.
Gradually the range of Alt-berg outdoor footwear grew to include travel boots and show, trekking shoes and adventure travel shoes. Alt-berg is a hiking boot manufacturer who still manufacture their walking and adventure travel boots in England at their hiking boot factory in north Yorkshire. The Alt-berg walking boots or traditional English walking boots – leather hiking boots with a good cleated skywalk dual density sole. They have always used skywalk soles on their hiking boots because the skywalk sole rubber is slightly softer than other soles and in certain conditions the skywalk sole gives a more adhesive grip.
