Meindl employ high quality nubuck leather on the upper for durability and straightforward maintenance. The high ankle cuff gives great support and is extremely comfortable with no rubbing. The eyelet lacing system is quick and easy to use. A hard wearing rubber rand protects the leather around the boot at impact points and the sturdy toe box gives great protection.
Inside the boot the Bhutan uses the MFS (Memory Foam System) to provide unrivalled comfort. The foam responds to the user and forms a mattress like cushion around the foot that means good support and comfort, and your foot is held in position. The GoreTex lining and AIR Active footbed gives waterproofing and breathability which is essential on longer hikes.
The sole of the Bhutan is what you'd expect from a Meindl hiking boot - sturdy but with enough flex to be comfortable, deep lugs that are very grippy on all surfaces and shed debris.
If you are looking for a top quality boot that can be relied upon then this is an outstanding option.
