The Meindl Brand
The Meindl family has been making footwear since 1683. Each Meindl boot combines innovative technology and materials with traditional skills passed down through the generations.
The brand firmly believes that only a boot that fits will make you happy which is why they have ploughed centuries of experience into the art and science of comfortable walking boots and shoes.
Meindl also has an innovative Comfort-fit range of boots and shoes. Wider, more generous and more supportive than a standard trekking fit, the range is perfectly suited to walkers with wider feet who have struggled to find comfortable boots in the past.
Meindl’s history begins in 1683. Petrus Meindl was the first family shoemaker in Kirchanschoring, Bavaria, Southern Germany.
Fast-forward over 300 years and Meindl now produce over 1 million pairs of boots and shoes from their same home in Germany each year. At the helm are Lukas and Lars Meindl, the eleventh generation of the Meindl family shoemakers.
Over the years, Meindl boots have been trusted all over the world – right from Mount Everest expeditions to pounding the pavement on city breaks. The family have continued to develop their footwear and innovation lies at the heart of Meindl. Alfons Meindl was one of the first shoemakers to use a GORE-TEX membrane in a boot, making it waterproof and breathable. He also developed the terrain categories A-D that are widely used to categorise shoes and boots today.
Meindl’s home is one of the few remaining boot factories in Germany. Lukas and Lars employ 200 master shoemakers all with the experience, attention to detail and commitment that a natural product, such as leather, needs. There are over 200 steps required to manufacture every single high-quality walking boot that steps out of the Meindl factory. Handcrafted production is supported by modern equipment, but each machine is still operated by a person. High quality assurance systems are in place and over the years Meindl have continued to favour handcrafted quality over becoming a brand that breaks into a mass market.
