Reliable grippy outsole

Meindl’s Bhutan MFS offers backpackers the right amount of traction with its Vibram Multigriff outsole. Its heavy-duty surface is laden with aggressive lugs, with the central ones made circular for hydroplaning prevention. 

Meindl's unrivaled support and comfort

Delivering adequate comfort and stability on rough terrain is the boot’s chunky midsole. It comes with a wedge unit made of polyurethane (PU) for added cushioning.

Further bolstering the footwear’s underfoot comfort is the Meindl-exclusive Air-Active footbed. It is engineered with Soft Print foam—a cushioning technology that allows the footbed to adjust to the contours of the wearer’s foot.

Extra soft ankle cushioning in Meindl Bhutan MFS

Meindl’s Bhutan MFS has a waxed nubuck leather upper. Its waterproofing is found in its Gore-Tex liner. Its ankle collar is engineered with the Memory Foam System for extra cushioning. Around the base of the boot is a full-on rubber rand that prevents the upper from sustaining scuffs and abrasions. 

The Digafix closure system completes the boot’s upper. It consists of laces made of synthetic and combination eyelets made of metal.
