Not comfortable 'straight out of the box' actually took a lot of miles to break in. Also needs a very good footbed as the insole is very hard. After initial problems I wore these boots a lot and covered a lot of miles but after a year the rand on the toebox started to come adrift and allowed water in, not good. I asked Meindl for advice but although they did offer to inspect them I was told that if there was any damage to the interior Goretex lining then warranty is invalid any way,even if the damage is not where the water is getting in! I thought I was buying heritage, quality and craftsmanship, sadly these boots lasted one fifth of the length of time of my previous boots (that were consideably cheaper) even though I used Meindl proofer and conditioner and Meindl Sportwax when cleaning. To say I am disappointed in Meindl products is a big understatement. Not recommended, too expensive, short lifespan.
