Boots By Category
Meindl Category A - The Perfect All Rounder For All Day And Everyday Use.
This category of boot is designed for use on relatively flat formed walking trails, casual use and wine bar tramping. It incorporates lightweight EVA chassis with Permanently Elastic (POM) Sprung Arch Support and the Meindl Multi-Grip Sole.
Meindl Category A/B - Light Hiking And Trail Walking.
Durability and comfort are the qualities in this classic light tramping boot range. Ideal for trail walking including reasonably rugged and poorly formed trails and tracks. Features include lightweight fully orthotic polyamide shanks, MFS mouldable foam linings, synthetic mesh internal forms for continual support even when the boot is wet, and the Meindl/Vibram Multi-Grip sole.
Meindl Category B - Classic Hiking And Tramping Boot.
The B Category boot is a true classic range of models designed for aggressive trail walking and hiking on steeper and more demanding trails. Features include the Meindl medium strength fully orthotic shank, MFS mouldable foam linings, full synthetic internal support forms to keep the boot in shape when wet offering maximum support at all times and the Meindl Multi-Griff profile sole for prolonged tramping and trailwalking.
Meindl Category B/C - The Ultimate Tramping Boot.
The B/C range of boots are the most aggressive tramping/hiking boots and have enough torsional strength, tibial support and hardness of sole to offer a low level of sidling off trail ability. This range has stronger fully orthotic shanks, MFS mouldable foam linings, synthetic mesh internal supports that hold the boot in shape when wet and the Meindl/Vibram Multi-Grip Sole.
Meindl Category C - Sub Alpine / Off Trail Sidling Boot.
This range of boots is designed for use in off-trail situations where very little heel and toe walking is actually done. Consequently the shank in this model is very strong fully orthotic polyamide with MFS mouldable linings, synthetic mesh internal supports for continual support when the boot is wet, insulation for colder weather conditions and the Meindl/Vibram Multi-Grip Sole of harder compound for cutting in and holding an edge when negotiating steep terrain.
Meindl Category D - The ultimate High-Mountain Alpine Boot.
The High Alpine range of boots has a very rigid fully orthotic polyamide shank with spring steel reinforce. The leather uppers of this range are maximum thickness with internal synthetic forms to achieve the most tibial support possible. Synthetic mesh internal supports are used to insure the uppers when wet still offer the maximum support needed in extreme conditions, MFS mouldable foam linings ensure an exact fit to foot form and they are fully insulated for extreme climatic conditions. The soles used in this range are Vibram Alpin and Montagna.
