I have Lowa Mountain GTX for bimbling around the countryside and someone 'gifted me' a pair of the Meindl desert boots......I wuz chuffed. They are nominally the same size, but wheras I remember that the Lowa gave me very little initial trouble other than the stiffness of the quality leather the Meindl, technically being softer and more plyable gave me feckin blisters and took months of slowtime wear to break them in - but I do like Meindl.
That said: Everyones feet are different you need to try them on and make your own decision. When I get back to the UK I am getting myself a pair of Meindl Burma PRO MFS, I tried some on before I left and regret not buying them on the spot. It was like my feet were having sex with the boots. No, you can't get them here in septicland.
