Altberg Hogg Microlight - for bike and hike?

Hello guys in the UK (and whoever might know them)!

After last years great Bike&Hike vacation in Norway I had the idea to get some (waterproof!) boots that work both on the bike (good protection) and for mountain hiking. I discovered the company Altberg, who has some nice alternatives, which really look like they will last many years. They also have a nice profile on the sole which looks good for hiking. But are the comfortable enough even if I am standing on the footpegs for a longer time? This require some stiff soles, which are at the other hand not so good for walking.

The idea is no minimize my equipment. I would then only carry one pair of light sandals for walking around on the campground and to "ventilate" my feet in the evenings.

Greetings from Sweden
Kai-Uwe / nordicbiker

This is the first I've seen of these boots & I'm very interested. Anyone know if there is a US distributor for these? They look like just the ticket for boots that are both protective while riding and comfy for modest hiking.

I have Alt-bergs. They're fantastic. Superb build quality, warm, comfortable, protective and completely waterproof.
