  • The high-collared Burma Pro MFS is a leather hiking boot lined with Gore-Tex. It keeps the foot protected from detritus.
  • The midsole is equipped with an EVA foam to yield cushioning on rocky trails. It is accompanied by an Air-Active footbed from Meindl.
  • Surface traction is being handled by the Multigriff outsole from Vibram. Its profile includes pronounced lugs that bite into most terrain types.

Catering to male and female hikers, the Meindl Burma Pro MFS relatively runs true to size. It also comes in full and half sizes. Standard width is offered to both men and women.

The Digafix technology features flaps on the sides of the ankle. As users tug the laces, this feature tightens the fit around the foot without the formation of pressure points.

The Vibram Multigriff outsole features angled lugs which allow the boot to self-clean. The studs on the sides help stabilize each stride. It also features lugs on both front and rear ends that deliver grip during ascents and descents.

This high-cut day hiking boot uses an EVA midsole  for lightweight cushioning. It is partnered with an Air-Active footbed  which has a Soft Print foam on top. It adapts to the shape of the foot. It is attached directly to a drysole fleece, which helps maintain a fresh and dry feel.

With a nubuck leather upper, the Burma Pro MFS yields durable protection on the trails. Inside the boot is a Gore-Tex laminate which renders weatherproofing without compromising ventilation. The Memory Foam System (MFS ) uses a reticulated foam which conforms to the shape of the foot through body heat.

The traditional lace-up closure uses metal hooks and loops for faster closure. The cushioned tongue has a stud which helps keep the laces in place. Its collar is padded and has perforations to promote comfort. Additionally, a full rubber rand wraps its base to enhance durability.

  • Classified by Meindl under the B category, this boot is ideal for long walks and easy alpine landscapes.
