Review Meindl's size guide below to identify the correct size of boot for your feet.

Guaranteed dry feet

The classic profile belies the high-tech design inside these versatile, lightweight hikers. Soft foam pads and MFS Vakuum foam panels lining the nubuck leather uppers form a solid grip that locks feet into place to create a custom-like fit. Spring showers, summer dew, fall frosts – whatever the weather does, you’re ensured dry feet thanks to 100% waterproof Gore-Tex linings throughout. Air-Active foam/fleece footbeds adapt to your feet for sole-soothing comfort. Meindl’s Multigrip rubber outsole is perfect for on-trail hiking and off-trail exploring alike. Made in Europe 

Sizing Guidelines

If you’ve never worn this boot before,
Our recommendation is to order a whole size down from your Brannock measurement or current U.S. size. Click HERE to find your Brannock measurement.

If you have worn this boot before,
Our recommendation is to order the same size you’re currently wearing.

"Made for springtime treks and summer overnights in the backcountry with the perfect blend of support and comfort. From the first lace-up, these hikers wear like your favorite, broken-in boot. If you’re looking for one pair of everyday hiking boots, you’ve found your match."

    Best boot on the market

    I have worn Meindl boots every workday for 18 years. Will never buy another brand. I am on my eighth pair and put them through extreme conditions. They are of exceptional quality and have never let me down.

    New boots and 48 miles on them . Breaking in well. A comfortable boot for medium trails and lite pack. My 5th pair from a solid company.

    Cork insoles

    The Meindl boots used to have the cork insoles, they were way more comfortable. Boots seem good but went out and ordered new insoles right away. Go back to the cork insoles.
