The ALTBERG SNEEKER MkII Microlite boot is a specialist boot which was first developed for military uses in close proximity and rapid intervention / 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 AltBerg 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.
Altberg Sneeker Original MkII Microlite Military Boot, MOD Brown
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, internal Cambrelle lower foot lining (NOT sympatex/gortex) and the microlite Vibram flexible sole.
This ultra lightweight Alt-Berg Sneeker boot weighs 630gms (size 9). The boot has a non waterproof Cambrelle lining around the foot, heel and ankle (The aqua version has the waterproof Sympatex lining) The leg is unlined. The boot uses the Tri-flex 3 season mid sole, which gives medium flex with excellent torsion resistance and support on moderate and rough terrain. The upper is made from soft, supple, lightweight, water repellent Nappone leather 1.8mm thickness.
This is a great boot for rapid deployment and firearms use. It is very popular for training and tabbing.

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 at the front and the heel is a bit tighter to prevent movement and blistering to your heel.
