Alt-Berg Fremington

A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1656g (pair, size 11) that comes in five width fittings. Sympatex waterproof lining; virtually one-piece leather upper and exceptionally soft ankle cuff, with solid toe box and heel cup for maximum support and protection, plus Vibram sole. However, the very soft ankle cuff makes this better for path walks rather than anything where more support is needed.

 

 

Verdict: Great if you want a low-cut, waterproof boot in a specific width fitting.
