These uninsulated professional-grade boots were inspired by and are built for military and law-enforcement personnel, the kind of professionals who rush forward when the going gets tough. That said, they are also a great choice for any lifestyle, whether it's duty, work or recreation. They are not for heavy packing but are ideal for carrying light to medium loads, like a tactical pack. These boots are designed to breathe to provide ventilation in hot, dry environments and to manage moisture, moving any and all moisture - whether perspiration or water you slog through - efficiently to the outside. To be clear, these boots are not waterproof, but are designed to manage moisture from inside grout to maximize comfort. The lightweight suede leather uppers feature Cordura nylon inserts, a lightweight, durable pairing that provides a functional combination of flexibility and support, so much so they are great for running and high-speed movement. Same goes for the Meindl-exclusive Vibram® Multigrip outsoles which combines traction, flex and durability to help keep you sure-footed at any speed. Plus, an integrated compression zone at the ankle provides support, comfort and flexibility without compromising the secure fit. The Air Active memory foam footbed molds to your feet to cushion and evenly distribute weight. Reinforced heel and toe add protection from wear and abrasion. Made in Bosnia

While in Afghanistan I got a pair of these boots from the British. They were the most comfortable boots that I wore during my deployment
I live in these boots everyday in the California desert. I’ve had two pairs and I will keep buying them. These are official issue desert boots for the British Military and they are built to handle every extreme terrain, thorn and temperature the desert provides. Most importantly, these boots are comfortable, I choose to wear them even in the workshop over my other work boots.
We want your Meindl footwear to not only fit your feet but also your outdoor lifestyle. No matter where you are or what you are exploring, it is critical your footwear fits properly. Our boots and shoes are constructed using different manufacturing techniques and different lasts (forms) which helps us tailor our boots and shoes to excel in different environments.The construction technique and last we select to build each style can make that particular boot or shoe fit differently, even within our own line of products, which is why it is important for you to follow our fitting guidelines to get you into the correct size.
Because the last and the manufacturing technique we use can change the way our footwear fits, Meindl USA gives guidance for proper fitting on each style we sell. All of our sizing recommendations are based off the Brannock measuring device, which is why it is critical to have your foot measured using that device.We collectively have decades of experience fitting Meindl footwear to the person and activity, so our fitting guidelines come with the knowledge needed to ensure you get the correct fit.
At Meindl we know that quality boots are a significant investment. That is why we are so committed to educating our customers on the best methods of care to make sure your boots continue to perform at their peak and last for years to come.
All Meindl Boots come out of the factory treated and ready for you to get out. However, if you want to ensure the boots are in peak condition from the moment you hit the field you can give them a quick treatment with our Meindl Wet Proof and let that sit for 24 hours and then apply Meindl Sport Wax.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT heat Sport Wax before applying. Doing so can cause it to penetrate too deep and impair the leather’s breathability and wearing comfort. DO NOT apply oils or grease on any of our boots. There are two reasons: First, oil and grease products can cause boots to lose strength and stability. Second, oil or grease will migrate throughout the leather which can cause the rand and outsoles to delaminate from the boot.
Quality boots deserve care and attention. Read our full article to learn how to maintain your Meindl boots from beginning to end.
