This ultra-comfortable and supportive hiking shoe from Meindl boasts a waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® lining that ensures dry feet inside and out, and a rugged Contagrip outsole provides hardwearing traction on a range of surfaces. A cupped heel stabiliser and toe protector provide added protection on tricky paths and trails.
Have been wearing these in, in park and pavement. I think these pricey shoes are better suited for hard, uneven rocky terrain. They are stout, hard - thick socks must be worn otherwise they feel harsh on grass and pavement. Insoles too hard - I changed mine out for softer insoles. Toe box on small side (personal comment only). Quite alarmed at heel wear rate after only walking 40 miles or so. Gortex lining sock is industry standard and seems to work - so far. For me, for grassy dale and vale perhaps too 'hard'. Lace design is good, simple bow does not become undone.
