Boots with Chainsaw Protection
Meindl Air Stream Hi Viz boots are the ultimate safety boot. The first line of defense is a steel safety toe cap and tough Bergrind Leather upper. For further reinforcement there is a special chainsaw anti-cutting Kevlar stainless steel mesh lining and strong anti-piercing shank. The protective system is finished off with a strong rubber rand around base of the boots to offer some protection to the leather upper at its widest point.
Of course being Meindl boots they are also supremely comfortable. They have a 100% Waterproof Gore-Tex® lining as part of their Air Revolution System which provides optimum foot temperature and has improved the Gore-Tex® standards of breathability by 33%. The Air Revolution boots offer excellent protection against overheating even with heavy all day use. At the same time the boots offer protection against cold - dry feet are warm feet and the Gore-Tex® lining is a one way membrane, wicking moisture away from the feet and out of the boots but not letting any cold water in. No detail is overlooked - the steel toe cap even has a polystyrene insulation lining. Meindl's "Posture Correct Walking System" is incorporated into the boot design which provides support for optimum walking posture helping prevent foot and back problems. The medium/firm Orthotic Nylon Polymid shank offers excellent support.
These boots are ideal for logging in steep country, long days high country farming or anywhere comfort when correct support and safety are crucial.

These specialised Meindl forestry boots have Class 1 chainsaw protection, a layer of abrasion, tear and heat resistant “kevlar” attached to the inside of the leather uppers, anti piercing soles and an inbuilt steel toe cap. There is a layer of polystyrene under the steel toe for insulation and a protective rubber covering over the toe and heel. Meindls’ air pumping and moisture drainage system works with the Gore-Tex lining so that when the boot is flexed air is pumped through the boot helping the removal of perspiration/water. Meindl have produced a sole that ensures the best foothold, support, edging ability, traction and shock absorption. This is the latest boot from Meindl incorporating the Meindl “Posture Correct Walking System”. The system transfers the bodies weight from the heel forward to the ball of the foot, leaving the heels and skeletal train above floating, with virtually no stress or weight on the lower limb joints. This has amazing benefits in reducing back ache, hip, knee and ankle problems. Many more features, this is THE Forestry Boot.Code: WALDP/41From: $644.00 inc GST
