I bought a pair of these over the tinterwebnet from a well known Military shop up North after reading quite a few different review's about the usual top end makes. Most of the thing's I read about Altberg's in general seemed to be very good, so I ordered a pair of the new Warrior Mk 2's and sat back, looking forward to receiving my new ultra comfy, dapper as Raffles, Black Taxi's. For some reason though I've not been having much luck with them. I originally bought a pair of the non waterproof ones in my normal size (8 1/2 med). I knew that the size was right as I tried on a pair of Sneekas in a shop in the Shot the other month, and they fitted fine, but when my new boots arrived they came up quite small and they pinched the toes together accross the top of the foot. I phoned up and asked the guy at the shop about the boots before I returned them, and he said that as they're all made from the same mould type thing/whatever, they should all be the same size, and suggested I just go up to a 9 med, which I did. This time though I also paid him another £10, and asked him to send me the waterproof version. Because of the snow the post has been buggered up, so I've been waiting nearly 2 weeks for the replacements, but today I was chuffed to nuts when Postman Plod knocked on the door with my new boots. I went and put them on straight away, expecting to be marching smugly around the South Down's this afternoon in my ultra comfy boots, but again, dissapointingly, they just felt "wrong". They're fine accross the foot, no problems with the toes this time, but now my heel feels sort of loose and as though it's slipping about in the back of the boot. I'd say that this pair are now too big! Now I've never had problems getting boots in the past. I've not got feet like John Merrick's. No extra toe's, that sort of thing. I'm not Cornish, and I'm not related to any former residents of Imber, so I'm confident I'm "Mr Normal" as far as the old plates of meat are concerned. So I can only surmise that the fault's with the boot's. I've been wondering if perhaps Altberg's are only ultra comfy if you get your feet measured at the factory rather than buy them off the shelf, but I doubt if that's the case as it would seem a bit pants to me. Especially when you're paying £160 quid a pair!! On top of the messing about though, it's also going to have cost me £20 quid in shipping for returning the bugger's twice, and as I'm not exactly using £50 notes to light my cigars at the moment I'm not overly happy about that. So. Anyone else had similar problem's with Altberg's, or am I **** footed freak?
