Where can you buy them, are they any good and how long do they last? Oh and do they keep your feet warm?

The police I know wear Altberg boots, but I'm sure a bike copper will come along in a minute and correct me.

 Usually they wear Daytona boots....but some forces allow officers to choose other brands as long as they are similar price.

Might I remind you that calling the cops round just to look at their boots is wasting.......

Anyway, Altbergs seem to be well made.

 I wear the sort of Altbergs the guy says they don't make any more, with the back zip, so can't really report about the new improved ones, except to say I've seen them and they be a bit hard and need a good break-in.

[quote]"We made our first motorcycle boots for the Police...for the old 'Goldtop' company. The Goldtop boots were the iconic 50s biking boots...and I think all bikers my age remember them as part of that golden era of British Bikes.

"By 1990 however things had changed...although they looked brilliant the Goldtop boots had problems...the zip at the back. First it wore a hole in your sock, then it wore a hole in your heel. They had no waterproofing and to keep your feet warm in winter you had to wear at least two or three pairs of socks...so you always had to buy the boots at least a size too big to fit the extra socks. Then in summer with only one pair of socks your feet slid around and they felt like oversize wellies passed down to you through the generations.

"The Police wanted something more functional but not flashy...so we made the Clubman Classic, and then the Tourer as a short boot...The Police thought they were a big improvement but everyone...including me... still misses the old Goldtop boot and that golden era of British bikes...happy days.[/quote]

The Altberg featured in the image are the current issue of TVP. I've been wearing them on duty for the past 10yrs...they're a little bulky and not too friendly in changing gear if your on a nimble 600 sports but for the BMW's we ride and the old pans they are fine...VERY warm and VERY waterproof.....well priced and mine are still going strong after 10yrs...you won't be dissapointed

It's ok i don't want to wear them on a bike Are they flexible at the front of the ankle, where that big strap is?

They are great boots and will last forever. It can take up to two years to break them in.  Ive had mine for seven years and they seem barely broken in.  They are made from seriously tough material and  are quite good at keeping feet warm, and dry. Wearing proper socks will help with keeping  your feet warm.

As you can appreciate venus i do little walking in them!!

but they're comfortable and the strap at the front is a velcro adjustable one so the amount of tightness is fully adjustable....

worth bearing in mind that Altbergs main source of income is from thier walking boots which would seem to favour what you have in mind for them!

A long chopper is (sometimes) a bike.
