Softline TOP GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn, just took time to break in. I have slightly wide feet; yet despite that these boots are slightly narrow, they stretched in a couple of weeks of breaking in. Perfect fit. The best boots I have ever worn. I have slightly wide feet, and still find them comfortable, though they started off narrow because in a couple of weeks time they stretched to the shape of my feet, getting more comfortable with time. They have a speed lacing feature. They proved… Full review

Softline TOP GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good comfort, stability, and waterproofness. However, not so great for fast scrambles as the weight of the shoes are not as light and nimble as some synthetic textile models. I have had the Meindl Softline Top GTX for a bit more than a year. I have not used it extensively, relatively speaking. However, I did use it to hike through the rainforests of Mount Cameroon National Park during the raining season. The boot always felt comfortable, supportive, and totally waterproof even in pouring tropical… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I bought mine back in 1996. Will I buy them again? Yes My review is about the original Makalu, I presume the new Makalu Pro 3000 MFS GTX is a much better and improved mountaineering hiking boot. When you're out there exposed to the elements having to walk through mud-pools, steep rocky and slippery terrain you need a rugged boot you can trust in every condition imaginable, a shoe that will never let you down especially when the nearest outdoor store is thousand miles away.  I bought mine back in… Full review

Island Pro MFS

rated 4 of 5 stars Great boot, very comfortable, bulletproof. Very, very poor after-sales service. Had these for about four years and done many backpacking/trekking kms both in ANZ, Europe, and Asia. Extremely comfortable and supportive boots and fitted very well given that I have fairly aggressive orthotics and find getting a good fit a big challenge. I am 98kgs, so a lot of weight to support when you add another 20kgs or so, but no issues at all with these boots in that regard. My only complaint about the boots… Full review

Island Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Had mine nine years, re-soled once, uppers still in excellent condition. Never given me blisters, never leaked, always comfortable. Can't recommend these boots highly enough—no breaking-in period for my pair, always comfortable, never chaffed, rubbed or leaked, offer excellent ankle supper without being inflexible. The uppers have taken nearly 10 years of abuse and are still in superb condition (which warrants the re-soling cost) so including re-soling they've cost me around £30/year and I basically… Full review
