Brilliant boots, this is my fifth pair! They're smart, very comfortable and can be worn in so many places.
This is the 3rd pair of Meindl boots I've bought in the last 5 years. They fit like a glove, have great grip and are lightweight, the perfect walking boot except - this 3rd pair have arrived with shorter laces which means it's difficult to tie a single bow and a double bow is impossible. Why do companies like Meindl damage a hard won reputation with stupid cost saving on a pair of boot laces? It looks like the accountants are in control which invariably means that things at Meindl will only get worse, I'll shop around next time.
Excellent quality good fit for my wide foot.
My second pair of these boots. I have wide feet but narrow ankles and these fit me well. Light and comfortable to walk in straight from the box.
I bought these boots to tackle walks on the hills and mountains and to wear as a daily boot / shoe. I bought them as they were light and I had planned on doing some hill runs too.
6 months of light regular use and the rubber soles are almost totally worn out with very little grip left.
The uppers are fine but after nearly breaking my wrist three times as I slipped in wet grass/mud I’ve totally lost confidence in these boots. My wife’s boots which has a traditional vibram black rubber sole was fine and offered plenty of grip on the same terrain.
The problem appears to be with the use of poor quality recycled rubber which is way to soft for a hiking boot.
Won’t be buying again for sure
