Island Design Priorities

Meindl Island design points

Island Features

  • Internal polymer toe cap with generous volume.
  • Multi-piece upper allows extremely accurate and comfortable boot design. Maximises comfort and fit right out of the box.
  • Quadruple stitching on exposed seams. The Polyamide fibres are laid down in embossed seam tracks to minimise exposure and abrasion.


  • DIGAfix® lacing system. Provides perfect support to the ankle and holds the heel into the boots heel counter to increase stability and guard against heel rubbing and blisters.
  • Open shaft laces hooks for quick don and doff and lace locking.
  • GORE-TEX® lining for 100% waterproofness and vapour permeable breathability.
  • Meindl Air pumping and moisture drainage system. During walking motion air is forced through channels in the upper and tongue material. This serves to drive out water and increase the vapour release of the GORE-TEX® lining.
  • PU foam midsole for optimised shock absorption, vibration dampening, rebound and flexibility.
  • Rubber outsole optimised for use in rural terrain with self-cleaning profile.
  • Very comfortable orthotic full-length differential tapered polyamide shank with defined torsion and flexation zones. Medium flex to provide optimum support in as much of the use spectrum and terrain types as possible.
  • Flexible Crampon compatible.
  • Multi-core Polyaramid reinforced laces for ultimate strength and reliability.

  • Synthetic internal structure supports to optimise the ratio of ankle support and flexibility; even when the leather is soaked. Rigidity and ankle support is optimised for use in heavy load carrying situations and movement across broken terrain.

Meindl MFS

  • Meindl (MFS) Memory Foam System. Heat activated responsive memory foam padding in key fit and support areas to ensure an amazingly customised fit.


  • AIR-ACTIVE® SOFT PRINT footbed by Vildona® wicks perspiration from the feet and transport it away from the sole to the permeable lining.
  • Aggressive Meindl Multigriff® sole pattern provides optimum balance of adhesion, braking, lateral stability and toe thrust.
  • Meindl differential walking system. Differential roll effect is produced by the shank and sole to encourage efficient gait.
