my third pair of this great shoe.just walked the camino del norte in spain over 600km of rain,mud,sea,sand,asphalt and rocky paths.The meindle respond gtx performed brilliantly day after day leaving my feet fresh and blister free. The shoe cups the heel well and gives great support to the ankle.very light in weight yet sturdy in construction.This shoe looks good with a pair of jeans down the pub !.excellent product.
Not waterproof, 13 February 2017
By Nick (Glasgow)
Great looking shoes. Well designed, very comfortable. Entirely breathable. However they are NOT waterproof. Wore them for 40 minutes in rain and found socks were wet in shoe, i dread to think how they would have been if i were out for longer. Such a shame from Meindl as they certainly meet requirements on every other front. Think twice about wearing these at length if the forecast is rain.
Great shoe, 13 January 2017

I've just ordered my second pair of these to use on the West Highland Way in a couple of months time. My first pair have lasted me 2 years of daily dog / hill walking. They've been great. I use my own insole however due to being a flatfooted freak of nature but overall these shoes have been brilliant.
Doesn't breathe, 20 December 2016
By Walkmun (Bromley)
Very comfortable to wear straight out of the box, waterproof in my experience but they just don't breathe and your feet are like steaming puddings even after a short walk.
I took them to walk the 800kms Camino de Santiago trail and other than the breathability issues they were OK in the snow, slurry mud, rocks and asphalt (though Vibram' soles may have been a better choice) Sometimes I had to take my boots off to let them breathe. I would buy Meindl again but not Goretex footwear.
By ShoeBuyer (Liverpool)
Very disappointed by the difference of the claimed waterproof abilities of this shoe, the materials it is made from and my actual experience. The shoes leak terribly the gortex is hopeless. I had the conversation with the shop staff about my poor experience of gortex as a waterproof material. They assured me these shoes would be waterproof enough for my needs, walking the dog in the park. They are a complete disaster. Even after a day drying they are rarely dry enough to wear again. Recently they have started to smell of urine. I shampoo'd the carpet and blamed the dog, only to discover that these shoes are the source of the aroma. In the bin they go. I shall trust in my own experience from now on, no more gortex, no more Meindl.
