What I mean is that the sole is not glued on the Matterhorn boots in the toe box area and the Danner boots have them glued on just like my present converse boots that I had to get stitched as the sole was coming off after a while. Could only stitch is 3/4 of the way round though as the boots have a composite toe. The toe box was then re glued and now after a while they are coming off again. The Danner boots are the same and I believe I will face the same issues.
I think the Matterhorn will be good, how often are you out? I am looking more and more at the Lowa, but I don't need to buy new boots for a while, but it is a difference between what you want and what you need. What kind of Altberg boots do you have, 42RM?
