Equally comfortable during everyday activities as they are on hiking trails, these uninsulated boots feature Meindl's Comfort Fit® technology. The Veneto is handcrafted on an anatomically correct last to better fit the natural shape of your feet. Comfort Fit® technology also provides more room in the toe box and more width at the ball of the foot, mirroring the natural foot shape. The Comfort Fit® footbed is made of silicone impregnated moldable cork and comfortable fleece, a combination that conforms to the shape of your feet and wicks away excess moisture. Protection from the elements comes from the durable full grain waxed nubuck leather uppers and 100-percent waterproof Gore-Tex® lining which assures no water gets in, but perspiration vapor can get out. The Multigrip outsole provides reliable traction and a stable walking platform. Made in Italy
"The perfect lightweight, comfortable hiker for those light hikes or for your everyday casual use, these check all the boxes to get you through the day. Made with moldable Comfort Fit cork insoles, the Meindl Multigrip outsole, and being waterproof these will keep you feeling comfortable all day."
The best, most comfortable, protective, sturdiest yet light, walking shoes I've ever owned. And this is from an owner of several pairs of Scarpa Gore TX and HanWag line over a decade. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.
My second pair! Very high quality workmanship! Wore the soles off my first pair but no issues at all with seams, stitching or waterproofness. Day-long support in a lightweight boot. Highly recommended.
Pure comfort right out of the box. This is my first pair of Veneto Chukka after wearing the Light Hikers almost everyday for the past 10 years. Yes the same pair, a seam started separating a little so I decided it was time for a new pair giving these Chukka a try. Not disappointed nor expect to be, same amazing quality and great comfort first try. Another 10 years for everyday shoes, I wouldn't be surprised but I have and will continue to wear other Meindl products. Fast delivery too.
I love these boots and shoes from Meindl.
They are the only footwear I have found where I don’t wear out the inside heal padding.
Thank You Don
They are great, wouldn't buy any other brand..
We want your Meindl footwear to not only fit your feet but also your outdoor lifestyle. No matter where you are or what you are exploring, it is critical your footwear fits properly. Our boots and shoes are constructed using different manufacturing techniques and different lasts (forms) which helps us tailor our boots and shoes to excel in different environments.The construction technique and last we select to build each style can make that particular boot or shoe fit differently, even within our own line of products, which is why it is important for you to follow our fitting guidelines to get you into the correct size.
Because the last and the manufacturing technique we use can change the way our footwear fits, Meindl USA gives guidance for proper fitting on each style we sell. All of our sizing recommendations are based off the Brannock measuring device, which is why it is critical to have your foot measured using that device.We collectively have decades of experience fitting Meindl footwear to the person and activity, so our fitting guidelines come with the knowledge needed to ensure you get the correct fit.
At Meindl we know that quality boots are a significant investment. That is why we are so committed to educating our customers on the best methods of care to make sure your boots continue to perform at their peak and last for years to come.
All Meindl Boots come out of the factory treated and ready for you to get out. However, if you want to ensure the boots are in peak condition from the moment you hit the field you can give them a quick treatment with our Meindl Wet Proof and let that sit for 24 hours and then apply Meindl Sport Wax.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT heat Sport Wax before applying. Doing so can cause it to penetrate too deep and impair the leather’s breathability and wearing comfort. DO NOT apply oils or grease on any of our boots. There are two reasons: First, oil and grease products can cause boots to lose strength and stability. Second, oil or grease will migrate throughout the leather which can cause the rand and outsoles to delaminate from the boot.
Quality boots deserve care and attention. Read our full article to learn how to maintain your Meindl boots from beginning to end.
