Engineered by Meindl and Cabela's to handle mountainous conditions
Special lacing system helps eliminate blister-causing slippage
High rubber rand surrounds the entire boot to protect from rocks
100% waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® membrane
We worked with Meindl to design the new Hiker to specifically handle the absolute toughest mountainous conditions. Maximum support is needed in steep, rocky terrain, so they're built with a super-stiff insole for stability and extreme torsional rigidity. A DIGAfix® lacing system creates a perfect, pressure-free fit around the instep and heel to eliminate blister-causing slippage. And the Vibram® multi-grip outsole offers non-slip traction on rock walls, scree fields and most any ground you're likely to encounter. A rubber rand completely encircles the upper for maximum abrasion protection. Waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® booties combine with a moisture-wicking lining to keep feet dry in any condition. And a padded collar and fully gusseted tongue eliminate pinching and binding. An air active footbed guards against ankle- and knee-jarring shocks. The 8" uninsulated Hikers are perfect for milder weather outings. These are the ultimate Alpine boots. Made in Germany. Height: 8". Average weight: 3.8 lbs./pair. Men's sizes: 8-13 D and EE widths.
