The Meister is wider at the toe and in the heel area where the foot needs the most support, the branches are narrower so that they are more easily modified. The Kerckhaert Meister is a series designed and made for the German market; therefore, the sizing is different. The number on the Meister shoe is two sizes larger than normal Kerckhaert sizing for riding shoes. In addition, the mark on the Meister shoe is a "D" instead of the "K" you find on the regular Kerckhaert shoe. Meister Fronts are symmetrical. Punched for E-head.
