Bought these to replace a pair of similar Meindl's that were over 10 years old. Very comfy from the first use and the leather lining is super comfy. I have done over 1,000 miles since November from daily 8 mile walk to and from the railway station, to weekends up and down Snowdonia in winter, to the national three peaks. They have been near perfect and apart from a couple of nicks in the toe and heel rand, are still in great condition. I am a stickler for keeping my kit in good condition so they get regular rinse of and then coating in boot bees wax every couple of weeks. Replaced the lining with Sorbothane double strikes, not because the original linings were not good, but because I've always used Sorbothane.
For the three peaks, the whole boot got completely soaked inside and out, not the fault of the boot but mine for not wearing waterproof over trousers and gaiters in pouring rain. Took them off in the van to Snowdon and poured the water out. When I booted up in Snowdon carpark I expected that horrible squelchy boot feeling, but no, the boot felt completely fine. I put this down to the leather lining which does not really get wet like a fabric lining would. Remarkable.
The lacing system is very precise and coupled with the tough leather uppers provides all day stability and comfort.
Used them over the winter down to about -10C on the tops of the Glyders with knee deep snow and they were warm enough. Now that it's starting to warm up, they may be a bit too warm for summer use, but time will tell.
