Nepal Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Best boots I have ever owned. Just about dying now after 12 years of use and 3 resoles! Talk about value for money, despite high initial price. I'll miss them. I have used and abused my trusty Meindl Nepal Pros for the last twelve years in the wet, boggy Irish hills, Scottish winter (including grade II winter climbs), easy summer alpine climbing, multi-day backpacking, easy rock climbing, family woodland walks, gardening — you name it, they have done it admirably.

I think I gave them one re-soling. They had been very good boots for 10 years and took a lot of abuse. There was no real decision… Full review


rated 1 of 5 stars These boots are comfortable for short hikes, but become tormenting on longer hikes. Since every short hike can turn into a long hike should you get lost, this makes these boots relatively useless even on short hikes. I've been hiking quite a lot in several types of boots, but after just two days of hiking with these boots, the pain in my heels was so bad that I actually put them off and went the rest of the way barefoot, feeling much better as soon as I did so. I later bought some sandals for the… Full review
