Meindl Respond XCR 2011

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.

The Meindl Respond XCR is a good general sportily styled shoe for travel, fast hiking and biking.
