On the whole I like these boots, but they need a few features updated.
I bought these boots for walking in the Austrian / Continental Mountain trails, and they are comfortable for the wider foot.
The downside for me was no metal locking lace holder to hold your heel in place. Instead Meindl have a soft lace like loop holder which does`t allow to bring your extra long lace down to give you the extra security to hold your heel in place. The next item for improvement would be a longer and better padded tongue. I could no lace my boots to the top because if you did the laces slipped over the top of the tongue!! I was comfortable enough for the two to three weeks of fairly hard walking that I put the boots through and had no problems with my feet. They have an excellent grippy sole unit which is stable and no stone penetration felt through the sole.
