Reviewed by joel - 2nd Sep, 2021 inconsistent build quality and ultimatley 2 pairs failed... Amazing boots for comfort, support and long days out. Not a problem with this at all. however, these boots are highly inconsistent. 1st pair lasted 18 months before they split across both toe boxes (I clean and proof boots weekly). Got them replaced with the same thing and the 2nd pair failed in 10 months. the second pair where stitched wrong inside the boots which meant both of the tounges wanted to go sideways in the boots. seriously unimpressed with the quality for the price. I'm trying a model up and if these fail I will no longer buy Meindl and move to Hanwag or Lowa.
