Old Soles Don’t Die – They Just Move to England to be Mated to New Uppers

UK boot maker Altberg has mated their popular Jungle Micro upper to the classic Panama sole.

Seen here is the Jungle Micro upper which features a polypropelene graded midsole for underfoot support and protection and Anfibio 2.4mm leather/Cordura construction.

Available in UK sizes 5 – 11.5

Thanks Matt!
