Alt-Berg debuts performance footbeds

Yorkshire bootmaker launches two technical footbeds to provide better comfort and fit in footwear

Bootmaker Alt-Berg has launched two technical footbeds that are designed to improve foot comfort and fit in performance outdoor footwear.

The Svartz Anatomic Absorber and Svartz Ortopedix Stabiliser have been developed to accommodate supinating and pronating foot types.

Alt-Berg said the Svartz Anatomic Absorber is unique in that it offers underfoot cushioning and stabilisation, where other footbeds on the market do not, which helps those with supinating type feet cope with walking heavily on the balls of their feet and with heel lift and blisters.

The Svartz Ortopedix Stabiliser is designed to hold pronating feet in a more natural position and control heel movement and foot lengthening, alleviating issues of excessive heel movement, toes hitting the end of the boot and a lower foot arch, Alt-Berg said.

The Anatomic Absorber has an RRP of £24.99, while the Ortopedix Stabiliser has an RRP of £27.99. Alt-Berg said the pair are currently available to the outdoor trade, but it will be establishing a network of Svartz stockists around the UK over the next 12 months.
