Comfortable, well made and the only ones I could find that are wide enough for my feet. Great purchase and good service from H&D.
My first impression was great and they fitted well but when I went to wear them properly (outdoors) one of the cord eyelets pulled straight out (I don't think it's a great idea, whatever happened to proper metal eyelets ?) !!! They have been returned but as it was a special order from Germany it's gonna take a few weeks to turn around 😕. Hill and Dale have been good but I'll wait and see what comes back from Germany??
The title says it all
Great looking shoe and looking forward to wearing them in the up and coming trip to the Rockies but having bought my regular size 11 found my toes were easily touching the end of the shoe.
Sent off for 11.5 and still touching the end, Im now awaiting the third pair. Having tried, Meindl, Lowa, Merrell and Clarks it would appear that specialised walking shoes come up small . I play golf in 10.5 wide Footjoys but now need a 12 walking shoe!!. I think the 11.5 Meindls are a close fit but although the shoe says comfort fit, (it is where the main foot is) the toe end of the shoe curves too much and catches my second toe. I now have to wait 4 weeks for size 12 . All shoes tried with a standard ankle sock and not a walking sock, and yes, postage is racking up !!!
These replaced an older pair of Meindl shoes now discontinued - actually about the 8th pair of similar Meindl shoes I've had. The Comfort fit is excellent as usual for my wide feet and the shoes are very well made and waterproof as expected. Styling is now more at the outdoor/trecking end rather than a more general styling in earlier discontinued models. As part of this, the sides of the shoe under the ankle seem slightly higher and stiffer than expected and so are rubbing a bit on my ankle bone while wearing in. Otherwise excellent shoes as expected.
Very promt delivery from H&D.
