We've been enjoying a few chats on Twitter recently, in particular there was a good exchange about Meindl boots. Meindl recently won an award in Country Walking magazine for Best in Test for their Respond XCR. (The Ramblers Association mag also recently awarded Meindl with a silver accolade in the Best Walking Boot/Shoe category).
We decided that this tweet was worthy of a retweet and so we found that some of our followers are indeed fans of these boots, too. It's always good to hear of recommendations when buying new boots.
Of course, everyone's feet are different and so some bots will suit some people while some will not. And it does depend on the type of walking or outdoors activities that you're doing.
But here's what two tweeters told us:
Mad Hunter Mike, aka Mike Hardy, of Arbroath, recommends Meindl boots. He's on his 6th pair and reckons the boots are the best. Check out MadHunterMike
James Campbell of Campbell Tours, based in Scotland, is also a big fan of Meindl boots. He says: "I wear the Kopenhagen shoe with my kilt. They are great for easy to moderate walking."
Another boot brand that's worth checking out according to another outdoors person that Glentrek is following is Hi-tec. FionaOutdoors tried a ladies boot while her daughter Little Miss Outdoors put a kids boot through a rugged hill walk. They both recommended their boots for light to moderate walking.
We'll be keeping you updated on any other boots news that comes our way via the fun and newsworthy Twitter network. Why not join in the chat? Glentrek on Twitter
