Feeling the pinch and searching to move on some boots that I’ve been saving for when I move back to someplace like the highlands, however that nonetheless appears rather distant so desires will have to.
For sale I have a employed but in incredibly great nick pair of Meindl Perfekt boots size 10.five. For these that do not know these are ridiculously difficult and warm boots created in a classic mountaineering style, with thick nicely treated leather offering the waterproofing, which means a hot and sweaty membrane is not required. I have employed these a bit, but not lots as you can see from the state of the soles at the heal (they are hardly worn), and have treated them incredibly nicely with frequent waxing. There are the usual indicators of use that you get on leather, scuffs and such, as in the pics.The leather does not appear entirely smooth in the pics simply because i’ve waxed them in a for-use way (ie. not polishing them afterwards), the leather is entirely impregnated and they have under no circumstances sprung a leak.
The soles are very stiff, good for use wth walking crampons but for most use the stiff and aggressive sole tread is fantastic for snow and really hard snow on pretty much something other than steep mountain slopes. They are incredibly incredibly warm (they breathe a great deal far better than membrane lined boots, so your socks remain drier and as such are warmer) and sturdy, and will final for decades when looked right after adequately. The downside of these boots is that they need a lot more care than boots with a membrane, but for these who appreciate the added benefits of a a lot more classic style and arent worried about obtaining to appear right after their boots, they are definitely major of the line.
A lot more pics offered on request. I’d like £180 quid for these all in (ie. I will spend the paypal costs and postage). Open to sensible provides.
