Meindl Antarktis GTX
The Meindl Antarktis GTX was built for long days of walking in the cold. The combination of Nubuk Leather, Gore-Tex and Thinsulate lining makes for a durable boot built for temperatures of down to -30 degrees Celcius.
The specially developed Meindl Multigriff Ice Trek sole (developed with Vibram) provides outstanding traction on all terrain and the Air Active insole keeps feet dry and warm.
B/C Class boots are the most versatile boot that can take you anywhere from the trails around Vancouver to multi-day trips in the backcountry, lower elevation hunting and alpine hiking. They are heavier and have a more robust upper and sole unit than a B grade boot. They are suitable for occasional strap crampon use but do not have a heel-well for semi-automatic crampons.

Constant waxing of the leather is critical to maintaining the overall health of the boots, ensuring they stay waterproof and extending their. We recommend any beeswax-based product such as Meindl Sportwax. Waxing changes the appearance of the leather, making it smoother and darker.
There's no strict rule for how often to wax the boots but if you notice that water isn't beading off the boot anymore or the leather is looking a little dry, it's time to apply more! Apply it in thin coats all over the boots and rubber guard, since rubber can dry out too. Applying a little to the hooks and eyelets also protects them against corrosion.
If you're heading out on a long trip, it's a good idea to bring a bit of wax and a brush to clean and condition the boots since salt water, mud, and scraping against rocks and rocks will strip the nutrients from the leather.
