More support than a trainer, lighter and more flexible than a boot

On a great many paths and tracks, you'll require footwear more substantial than a pair of trainers, but trekking boots might seem like overkill. The Respond Mid bridges this gap: more ankle support than trainers, lighter and more flexible than boots.

The carefully designed Contagrip sole is built around a stabilising nylon heel cup, with the midsole and the shape of the outsole promoting an ideal combination of flex and heel-to-toe rolling motion: enough stiffness for support but enough flex for comfort. The padded, mid-height ankle cuff protects against rocks and tree roots, while the waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex lining protects your foot from the rain.

Sadly not waterproof!
Reviewed By M, 08 Dec 2014

Excellent comfort, but have had two pairs within the guarantee period and neither was waterproof. Just walking through a puddle allowed water to pour through the top and saturate my socks. Such a shame.



Sadly not waterproof
Reviewed By mary, 25 Nov 2014

I bought these boots last May. After spraining my ankle I needed a boot with good ankle support. I went on a walking holiday to Majorca and I loved my new boots. When I came back home and I went for a walk in the Cairngorms. Yes it was wet underfoot but not too bad and my boots leaked. Cleaned and reproofed them but the water poured in!! So they will only be suitable for 'dry' walks. :-(



Not waterproof
Reviewed By Sue, 30 Oct 2014

This is the most comfy boot I have ever had but it is not waterproof at all! Such a shame, even going through damp grass my feet were wet :-((
I did return them and bought a different make and as usual Cotswold staff were brilliant, Milton Keynes branch can have five stars.



NOT waterproof
Reviewed By Adrienne, 02 Sep 2014

The most comfortable pair of boots I have ever worn,but not waterproof at all - staff should point this out to customers. Returned and had them replaced, but next pair just the same.Feet were wet after walking through short damp grass.

Comfortable but not waterproof at all. Meindl replaced them, same problem with next pair. Only good for dry weather hiking.



Very comfortable but not waterproof
Reviewed By Deb, 12 Apr 2014

A great fit, very lightweight, comfortable and good for general walking but any moisture ( mud or wet grass for example) goes straight through. I didn't expect a boot at this price to let water in so I was very disappointed.



Brilliant value
Reviewed By , 08 Apr 2014

I have recently purchased Meindl boots, these are the most comfortable boots I have purchased in a very long time
The customer care I received was exceptional in your Durham store the guidance and support helped me make a very high quality boot at a reasonable price I was so impressed I also bought walking trousers and jacket, so glad I popped into the store on a day out in Durham, looking forward to purchasing more products in the future ,



Absolutely fits the bill
Reviewed By Maggie, 26 Feb 2014

I needed new walking boots following surgery on my foot - these are comfortable and easy to wear for trail& hill walking. The fitting service and advice given in the store (Betws-y-coed) was excellent too!



Comfortable boot
Reviewed By Alice, 30 Nov 2013

These boots are comfortable and supportive without being too heavy.



A good buy
Reviewed By Annie , 16 Oct 2013

Have just given these boots their first real trial - walking through mud and rain. Really comfortable and completely waterproof. Hope they last longer than my last boots (Salomans). Very good service from Leah in the Norwich shop, who suggested these after I tried a number of different makes. A good fit.



I'm so pleased with my new boots.
Reviewed By Ceri, 26 Sep 2013

My first walk in these boots was the Llanberis path to the summit of Snowdon, the boots were extremely comfortable, lightweight and have great ankle support. I'd definitely recommend them.



A great lightweight boot.
Reviewed By Myra, 18 Jul 2013

After trying on many brands, I knew straight away that these boots were perfect. They fit like a glove, provide wonderful support and look great. I will be wearing these boots for my Camino trek in August!



Great Buy
Reviewed By Kira, 22 May 2013

I bought these for a weeks walking along Hadrians Wall, despite buying them the day before the walk and having no time to break them in I had no problems, they were comfortable and I remained blister free.



Best all-round footwear
Reviewed By Rosalind, 30 Apr 2013

After a couple of years of using my boyfriend's feet as stepping stones across streams, and on occasion giving in and letting him carry me, he informed me in not uncertain terms that he was getting me waterproof boots. I conceded - although I hate shoe shopping as I have awkward feet, and we headed off to Cotswold Outdoors in Reading.

After the best part of an hour with me tromping up and down steps and trying on pretty much everything they had in stock, I settled on these Meindl boots in a size 6. They are a fantastic, light weight pair of footwear, providing support and a sturdy sole for the uneven trails we tend to follow, without resorting to a full-on walking boot. Waterproof and beathable, when combined with my trusty Bridgedale socks they are perfect for both easy walking and the slightly harder terrains we tackle. With wide feet, these boots give the right amount of support, and have a good width for all the foot, avoiding blisters on heels as well. In addition to this, they have the height at the toe area and across the top of the foot to avoid your toes getting smushed on steeper inclines.

We have tested them rigorously (a walking holiday in Iceland, and various parts of the Lake District - both places not reknowned for their dryness!) and my feet have stayed warm, cosy and dry. A definite plus!

Overall, I would say these boots are one of the best bits of walking gear I possess, and are well worth their asking price.



Very comfy
Reviewed By Natasha, 05 Mar 2013

Not the boot I intended to buy, but after having my feet measured I discovered I needed a wider fitting boot. James in Shrewsbury was really helpful and suggested these as they are a wider fit. So comfy.



Good stable comfortable walking shoe
Reviewed By Rachel, 08 Jul 2012

Ok, so i have to admit i got the men's shoe because i am larger than a women's 8 ... but that being said ... i love this shoe. It is so comfortable, my ankle is supported well, & it feels lighter than other weighty boot i've worn. It has room in the toe area for comfort (rather than feeling cramped), but my ankle is strapped in well, & doesn't push on my ankle bone like others do due to the padding. I spent 1hr trying on boots & shoes, walking/manouvering up & down the ramps in store - i was really impressed with the service.

This is the 2nd boot i've bought from Cotswolds, & i have to say, i always come away feeling confident in my footwear - the footwear staff really know their stuff, & have lots of handy hints



Great boots really pleased with purchase. James in
