Karrimor Meridian Low Event 2009

The Karrimor Meridian Low Event multi-activity shoe weighs 1164g (pair, size 11); superb price for what you get; suede, synthetic mesh and rubber upper; toe box is solid and heel cup very supportive; eVent waterproof liner; aggressive Vibram sole unit. But very heavy, outsole flex soft compared to sturdy upper; feels ‘clumpy’; not a precise fit.

 

Verdict: The Karrimor Meridian Low Event is a superb price for a heavy but waterproof, durable shoe that offers good grip and performance.
