I've been offered some Raichle boots for the missus at about Â£50 off the RRP (not a dodgy source!) and have not previously seen these boots. They're the "Women's Mountain Trail XT GXT" and from looking over them they seem to be cracking quality. Really good leather upper, vibram sole etc. I'd compare the quality to my lowas - which I'd considered getting for her as well. These Raichle boots are down from Â£150 to under Â£100, which would be a significant saving on the Lowas. Anyone got any experience of these? Are they as well put together as they seem? I've also been offered some Meindls, which I know are good quality, but not as cheap, so any idea how they compare? Or should I just get her the Lowas? They've done me sterling service and I'm pretty sure without them I'd currently be on a broken, rather than a sprained ankle!
