Types of use

Which boot will fit me perfectly? Which boot should I buy? These are important questions and come up every time you buy a new pair of shoes or boots. Boots with different fields of application are constructed in different ways. The Meindl terrain categories help immediately with which boot works best for each activity and terrain. Already in 1976 Alfons Meindl had developed these categories, which are still universal validity for every purchase of boots.

Note! the pictures are only a representative of each area. If you have any doubts, always choose the stiffer boot, as it has more possibilities.
