Meindl Dovre Extreme GTX
Unlike my Meindl Perfekt, the soles on the Dovre are not stitched but like most modern boots are glued and then reinforced with a high rubber rand. This was always a concern for me, as on most boots, particularly on cheap export boots, this is a weakness as glue eventually weakens and separates from the boot. I've seen it happen. On these German made boots though I've yet to see or read about that happening, although that doesn't mean it won't. Only time will tell. I bought these boots in British Columbia a few years ago at AJ Brooks. They owner had told me that as long as you keep them clean and protect them with cream you should have years of service. Obviously from the pictures I haven't been keeping these boots clean as I should.
