5531 Navy Hiking Boots are probably the best hiking boots you can find for that money. The 5531s are manufactured in Europe and are designed for hiking in the Nordic climate but are suitable for anyone who enjoys an active lifestyle, no matter the weather. They are made of waterproof genuine nubuck leather and the inner lining is a 4-layer sock-style TOPAZ membrane which ensures water resistance and breathability. The boots have a 2-layer Vibram sole for moving on soft and hard soil. If you are unfamiliar with Vibram, it is the Porsche or Ferrari, whichever you prefer, in the world of hiking footwear. The insole of the boots is anatomical, antibacterial and washable. 5531 Hiking Boots are manufactured in Europe according to NATO AQAP 2110 standard by the same factory making one of the most legendary military boots, M77s. The same factory, Samelin, has been making hiking boots for more than 20 years, and for many, they are above all known as the manufacturer of high-quality hiking boots. The boots will be shipped to you directly from the factory.
The sizes run large. We recommend choosing one size down, e.g., if you wear your Nike’s size 41, our hiking boots in size 40 will be excellent.
