User Review: Meindl Makalu
Price Paid: $625 NZ
Just picked a pair up today after spending allot of time researching what boot I was going to buy next (hence the 4 stars not five yet).
I work for a spray/Nassela tussock grubbing contractor so will be using these boots full time on New Zealand Mid and North Canterbury high country. My previous pair were La Sportiva Karakorums which have lasted me a year now and were very good boots, but I was keen to try something new.
The amount of times the conversation over boot choice came up over lunch at work is phenomenal, so I had a rough idea of what I wanted next. All they boys that had owned a pair of Meindls had Lowas on their feet and agreed that the Meindls were still the best pair of boots they owned, and would definitely go back to them. A few of these fullas had their fair share of pairs of boots so it was good enough advice for me to get a pair next.
Bought them from Hamills in Christchurch. These guys have awesome customer service, which is why I chose to splash out $600 in their store.
Really looking forward to trying these bad boys out!
