£105.00

The Meindl Respond XCR weighs 1004g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining; mesh upper for max breathability; durable protection around upper; good sole stiffness; good cushioning. But outsole lug pattern is relatively shallow so it’s not ideal for mud and grass slopes.

Meindl Burma Pro MFS 2011

£180.00

The Meindl Burma Pro MFS features nubuck leather; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; memory foam; rubber rand for durability; excellent sole unit for general hill-walking; proven performance and frequent Trail’s  ‘Best in Test’ winner. But its weight of 1948g (pair, size 11) is just too heavy by modern standards; the price is too high compared with other options that provide most of ...

Meindl Matterhorn Extreme 2010

£265.00

The Meindl Matterhorn Extreme retains the GSB crampon mounting system that was originally developed by Grivel and Scarpa, and this allows the dedicated GSB crampons to be very easily fitted to the boot. Normal crampons can also be fitted though. The Matterhorn has a very high ankle cuff, which makes this more of a mountaineering boot that a winter walking ...

Meindl Alpine Trek 2010

£210.00

As the name suggests the Meindl Alpine Trek is an excellent boot for Alpine trekking. It has a relatively lightweight upper that is made from synthetic materials, which also gives it a modern, stylish appearance. There is a waterproof lining inside the upper as well as a stretch ankle cuff so you get an ankle-hugging fit but with less restriction ...

£95.00

The Meindl Respond XCR weighs 1004g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining; mesh upper for breathability; durable protection around upper; sole stiffness good for mixed terrain; good cushioning.

Meindl Matterhorn Extreme 2009

£260.00

The GSB crampon mounting system is no longer provided in the Scarpa Manta, but it does remain on the Meindl Matterhorn Extreme. This system appeared in 2008 on this 4-season boot and it allows dedicated crampons to slot into the front of the boot while a tail clip locks the rear of the crampon in place. This makes crampon fitting ...

Meindl Himalaya MFS 2009

£220.00

The Meindl Himalaya MFS 3-4 season boot has been around a few years, and it is a good sound design for hill and mountain walking at any time of year. It has a leather upper with a huge rubber rand for extra durability. You get a Gore-Tex waterproof lining too. There is plenty of protection and support with this boot, ...

Meindl Emotion XCR

£100.00

Been around for a while now but still a top performer courtesy of an excellent Kevlar midsole that allows exactly the right amount of flex, and a very supportive suede and fabric upper. Good lacing, including the Meindl Variofix system, should enable a snug fit on most feet. Not as much padding as some so can feel a little harsh ...

Meindl Softline Lite 2009

£135.00

The Meindl Softline Lite is a reasonably lightweight boot at 1356g (pair, size 11); Gore-Tex waterproof lining; Vibram sole unit with good cushioning; very supportive upper, stiff toe box and heel cup; good aggressive lug pattern; good sole stiffness. But a boot with a leather upper is going to be more durable in the long term.

Meindl Emotion Lady XCR

£85.00

A good lacing system gives a decent enough fit. A lightweight shoe that takes some wearing-in but has many excellent features, including a supportive midsole and XCR lining.

Meindl Softline Ultra GTX

£120.00

Best for wider feet. Well padded and the unique Digafix lacing system (featuring an extended lacing point that wraps over the foot to help hold the heel in position) gives a reasonably secure fit. Midsole offers a good mix of stability and comfort and the ankle cuff is beefy and supportive, making it effective all over the mountain.   Colour: ...

Meindl Matterhorn GTX

£160.00

As the name suggests, the Matterhorn climbing boot is ideal for big, rocky mountain spikes, with an approach through a variety of slush, rubble, rock and scree as well as a dash across snow and ice, and a slog through a soggy bog. The sole is a stiff Vibram unit with a climbing zone and lots of stiffness to take ...
