I bought a pair of the Meindl Desert Fox in April 2023 before a trip to a hot region in Africa. I have not been disappointed. They are certainly cooler than my black leather waterproof Meindls, and provide excellent ankle support, which I need due to historical torn ligament problems. The Desert Fox boots are light and extremely comfortable. Once these are worn out I will certainly buy them again.
Due to the sole disintegrating due to PU hydrolysis I am not sure I can trust these boots anymore. I am on my 6th/7th pair but the last three have had problems as they cannot be stored apparently without causing the sole to peel off.
I brought a new pair 2 years old to Africa and within three weeks the sole is starting to come off.
It would be nice to know if the new ones have this problem.
