The Desert Fox has been a mainstay boot for several FVEYs militaries for two decades.
Meindl Desert Fox

Ideal for environments where high breathability is desired. Ideal for light to medium load carrying (up to 20kgs) on medium terrain and complex urban terrain.

The Clima lining and hydrophobic foams move perspiration away from the foot to the exterior efficiently. This also allows water that has penetrated the boot to egress quickly during walking motion.

Meindl Desert Fox

Due to its rugged construction and high postural support the boot is ideal for many professional and tactical applications when a highly breathable non-waterproof boot is desired.

MEINDL DESERT FOX

Advice from Meindl

  • This boot is awesome for both very hot dry environments and very wet temperate environments. In dry climates, it provides excellent breathability. In wet environments, the boot moves liquid efficiently to the outside of the boot. This can be a distinct advantage over waterproof footwear when the user is unable to prevent water entry through the top of the boot shaft.
  • Apply Meindl Sportwax liberally to the heel flex zone, the exposed seams and toe flex zones to prevent leather cracking in these high wear zones.
  • The boot is ideal when you are carrying light to medium loads such as body armour or Patrol Order. If you are carrying heavier loads such as FSMO and beyond, go for a B or BC category boot such as the Island, Desert Defence or GP Boot.
  • If wearing during parachuting or fast roping, please ensure to cover the open lace hooks with tape to avoid dangerous hang ups and damaging yourself and your equipment (Lesson learned the hard way by Joel).
  • Look after your mates and watch your six, these boots will look after your feet.

Meindl Vildona

  • AIR-ACTIVE® SOFT PRINT footbed by Vildona® wicks perspiration from the feet and transport it away from the sole to the permeable lining.
  • Hydrophobic foam between upper materials and waterproof lining. This allows perspiration and liquid water to pass quickly to the exterior of the boot. Foams are minimised in other areas of the boot to minimise weight.

Desert Defence TMD

  • Internal Nubuck leather heel counter in the critical high wear heel area to maximise boot life span during arduous military activities such as extended pack marches.
