Once a year, after the winter, they get a coat of wax.
I have Meindls as well (low shoes), around ten years old.
Are you going to wear them for going to work in or flanning around town ? Won't be any good for hiking.
Has anyone purchased the new Alico Guide boots?
Unfortunately the size 9M I ordered ran a little small.
The boot was a little snug but the real problem was the opening to the boot was very small due to the tongue design..
The back of my foot was rubbing the rear of he boot very hard.
I wish the Raichle Norwegian welt boots were still available.
The Alico guide leather does appear to be of the same quality as my EMS Raichle Ravine's .purchased in 1996.
They have 3mm thick Gallusser leather.
