The Meindl X-SO 70 is a first generation Goretex Surround Technology boot which uses a mesh wedge inserted between the Goretex liner and sole enabling hot air to escape from the sole of the foot passing through the tiny laser perforated holes in the side of the boot. This is a lightweight boot that comes up wider than average in a mid cut which gives flexibility but ample support for the ankle too. There is heel and toe protection and the lacing is very good at holding the foot firmly in place. Velour ventilated mesh uppers make this a really comfortable and breathable boot suitable for varying terrain when backpacking and hiking.
