MFS - Meindl Memory Foam System
The specially developed foam combination in the shaft area is deformed by body temperature and takes on the exact shape of the foot. Reticulated foams in the heel area and up to the toe area guarantee a perfect fit. There is no more pinching and pressing in these shoes, this is wearing comfort at the highest level!
The flexible, pressure-free, diagonal fixation in the instep area - enables stable and comfortable lacing.
The right socksThe socks form the layer between the foot and the shoe lining. For this reason in particular, it is important to ensure that they are optimally matched to the desired area of use. The GORE-TEX® membrane basically works independently of the socks used. However, optimally constructed socks can have a noticeably positive effect on wearing comfort, especially climate comfort
Therefore, pay attention to the right material mixture: 100% cotton absorbs a lot of moisture and releases it only very slowly. Moisture remains on the foot and the feet cool down. A mixture of high-quality virgin sheep's wool (e.g. Merino) and synthetic fibres (e.g. polyester, polyamide) is therefore advantageous.
A Fantastic boot, True to fit and extremely comfortable straight out of the box, and will only get better after the break-in period. Service from Bike-Discount was fantasic and although ordering the boots from Australia, recieved them at my door within 10 days. Great service, and a fantastic boot.
