Bought these boots for alpine trekking, but did not use them in hard conditions yet - but few winter trails through snowy paths left very good impression. Comfortable, stabile and reliable on slippery surface. Finally the one who beats my 10-years-old hand sewed heavy leather shoes ??
Use: Hiking in the Pyrenees
Break-in Period: ????
Price Paid: 1500 FF
Light, tough and good in water (dry quick after fording or rain storms, and good hold in tricky conditions. Well worth the money. (Best buy in a top French consumer mag shoot-out in 99.)
Materials: Leather with gore-tex liner (not detachable)
Use: trekking, light climbing
Break-in Period: not necessary
Price Paid: $250 US
Have used Meindl several years, and this model is really great. Walked 450 km in 25 days, and didn’t have to use any plastics on my feet. They are just greeeeeat!
Break-in Period: 60km
Price Paid: SFr $380
I haven't used them on a serious hike yet, but they are extreamly comfortable, looking forward to my first trek in them.
