The Altberg Sneeker MkII Microlite boot is a specialist boot which was first developed in 1997 for military uses in close proximity and rapid intervention fast deployment situations. It has become popular on a more widespread basis as a military 'tabbing' and training boot and with the police as a lightweight general duties boot or a firearms boot for urban situations. The Alt-Berg Tabbing Boot is very similar to the Sneeker but it is made on the A-forme (asymmetric) last and a bit lower at the ankle (having one row of lace loops less than the sneeker) and has a little more room across the front of the foot. It is also a little tighter at the back of the ankle keeping the back of the foot more secure reducing rubbing on the ankle.
The Tri-flex mid sole is a unique design which allows sufficient forefoot flex for 'kneeling over' position whilst retaining good torsional resistance for load carrying on uneven surfaces. The MKII version uses a new upper design, 1.8mm Nida Hydro full grain soft supple leather, internal Cambrelle ultra breathable lower foot lining (NOT sympatex/gortex as in the Aqua version) and the microlite Vibram Masai flexible sole or the Defender High Traction sole.
The Sneekers will cuurently still have lace hooks at the top rows, whereas most A-forme boots like the Tabbing have moved to SF version with no hooks, just lace loops.

If you are in doubt about your size, if you have narrow feet stick to your shoe size. For medium/wide feet it is worth trying a half size larger than you take in shoes, you will probably be wearing thicker socks with boots. The Tabbing Boot is also worth a look if you have a wider foot as it tends to be a little bit more generous in width across the front of the foot and the heel is a bit tighter to prevent movement and blistering to your heel.

Some customers have discovered that the MOD Brown boots can turn pink/mauve if polished with some readily available popular boot polishes, to keep your boots the correct MOD Brown, it is important to use AltBerg Leder Gris or Leder Gloss MOD Brown polish, available at Enforce-logic.
