2 year review update, 06 March 2017
I bought my boots in 2014 and initially they felt comfortable and the leather of what you would expect of a boot at this price. They developed a leak 12 months on and go outdoors arranged to send them back to miendl. Miendl comfirmed the fault and i got a new pair.These have performed well except the soles have worn quite badly and seem very soft on rocky terrain,the stiching is also starting to wear. Not the quality i would expect after a little over a year. I do cover more than the average walker but i still expected better. The vibram sole would have been a better addition. I have just purchased a pair of Altberg Nordkapp,for only 20 quid more and the difference is on another level. Factory fitting service and advice is brilliant. Definitely would reccommend Altberg. Cannot fault Go Outdoors service though
Leak after 11 months, 27 February 2017
By Ckone1503 (Stockport)
Very comfortable boot, very slippy on certain surfaces wet concrete and similar. However boots began to separate from the sole at the same point on both boots letting water in. 1 boot had a hole ripped In the leather where the boot naturally bends. Meindl said that this was "normal wear and tear" and infered that my lack of care was to blame. I don't know how my care should stop the sole separating from the boot. I will never buy meindl again.
Disappointed, 26 January 2017
By Ben (Newton Stewart)
Having had two pairs of Meindl boots previously, one four season pair which I bought 20 years ago and still have and one 3 season pair which I bought about 5 years ago and have worn out, I thought I was on fairly safe ground when I bought these from Go Outdoors in Penrith just before Christmas 2016. I was wrong, the left boot has a pinch point on my big toe joint which hopefully will eventually ease, it is nice and snug around the ankle. The right boot does not support my ankle at all no matter how tight I do the laces, around the toes it feels like a bigger boot. I am actually thinking of wearing a third sock on my right foot. At this price I at least expected uniformity of size but I question where the boots were made - China ????
Total disappointment, 12 November 2016
By Tom (Winchester)
I’ve had a pair of Meindl boots for about 16 years now but they were getting old an quite heavy. I fancied something lighter with some improved technical features like Goretex. Although pricy I tried these on in the shop and they felt so comfortable I thought they would be worth it. Read the other reviews as there are consistent problems. First the sole is NOT Vibram. Unlike their other boots Meindl have not used Vibram and you notice the difference to the extent that I lost confidence in these boots - so slippery. I have largish feet so bought the size 12. After a long and hard walk I had wrecked both large toenails as they are small in size when used under pressure. For some reason they gave me vey bad blisters both side of each heel - something about the design of the heel area. I know we are all different but this was not good. I will say that the Goretex waterproofing was good and was tested in some very bad English winter conditions. After just three walks, one over 100 miles, I gave them away and I’m back to my 16 year old boots and still looking for a replacement. Do NOT buy these boots.
Unhappy Rambler, 25 October 2016
By JR (Cardiff)
Bought these boots in March 2015 for the wider fit. Regular use of these boots with Ramblers every week and routine waterproofing has failed to stop one side of the boots from splitting to the sole. Good service from Go Outdoors in returning the boots to Meindl, however disappointed with the outcome from Meindl. I've had to purchase a pair of Waterproof socks to try & extend the life of a Very expensive pair of boots !!!!
