Meindl airstream issue


Recommended Posts

I got my meindl airstreams from Gustharts, only 7 months old and noticed some cracks in the soles and recently been feeling wet or damp toes after a days work and inside the boot are starting to feel wet. Anybody else been having any issues in such a short time with these. Also they are my second pair really do recommend meindl.

Under the stairs I've a pair of Airstreams in much the same condition.

Frustrated by my Scafell soles wearing out in under a year, I found a mountain footwear repair specialist in Grenoble.

They replaced the foam and sole for around €90 plus €30 postage.

Looks to be a professional repair unlike others who try sticking a sole unit onto the old foam.

The foam is much denser and these guys obviously see this issue alot in other makes of boot.

Yet to wear them in anger though.

The original Airstreams were brilliant, couldn't complain. Since then they changed the sole to a much softer compound. I don't think their even vibram soles anymore. As for warranty I think it's only about 3 months  with boots

Has anyone found any brands that don’t have the issue? I plan on getting them re-soled but it’s pretty annoying, especially when the boot and even the tread is still ok.

I have Andrews and Phanner Zermatts . The Andrews are still holding up but they look thinner than the Pfanner boots . I have had the Pfanner boots several years and still good .
