Meindl Borneo II Walking Boot for Ladies in Dark Brown
A waxed leather walking shoe, leather-lined with memory foam for added heel comfort. Suited to easy trekking and low-level mountain hikes.
Meindl has crafted handmade walking footwear for over 300 years so they should, by now, know a thing or two about producing a walking shoe that hits the top of the charts. So, let us introduce you to one of the brand's best-sellers - the Borneo 2.
Having a sturdy waxed waterproof nubuck leather upper, the Meindl Multigrip outsole is made by rubber sole producers Vibram. This may not be as flexible as some walking boot soles but for the activity for which the boot is truly intended (i.e. easy trekking and low-level mountain hikes) it has good shock absorbing ability for essential surefootedness.
The lining is also of leather making it breathable yet comfortable, and for the heel area Meindl use a memory foam system (rather than Goretex) that avoids the chaffing seam scenario. The Digafix lacing system creates diagonal fixing, allowing tightening at the correct pressure and point, and higher hooks which protrude less. A classic boot in the Meindl line of walking footwear, the Borneo has a loyal following.
We always advise calling in to one of our stores for a fitting to make sure you choose the right boot for you and your planned adventure/s, but if you're not local and have any questions before ordering online then give us a call on the number above.
