User Review: Meindl Makalu
Materials: leather, Gore-Tex lined
Use: backpacking/rough trail
Break-in Period: nil, stiff but do flex a bit later
Price Paid: $400 Aust.
I did a lot of research on boots and have been through about 20 pairs of all the supposed Name brands.
These are simply THE BEST no question.
They bare rather stiff in the sole but they do break in very quickly and can be worn straight out of the box. Superb boots and they last.
Update: November 9, 2005
I have done a lot of bush walking, sometimes with boots that say a lot but just don't deliver in the extremes of the Australian bush. These do. Simple as that. Best boots by a long way. I did lots of research and tried ALL of them. These are that good I flew from Brisbane to Sydney to try them on and bought them on the spot. Fantastic.
