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

"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."

    2nd pair of Meindl

    So these are my second pair of boots, first of this kind. Lost my last pair in a house fire. My other boots lasted about 12 years, wore them out, literally wore the soles off the boots prior to the fire. Hunting, Fishing, all outdoor activities that I needed boots for I wore them. New boots were too big, Meindl replaced them with 1/2 size smaller. I have been breaking them in slowly, they are still a little big but another 1/2 size down scares me so I am sticking with them. Love them, but if they are anything like my last boots they didn't break in right away. They have already been fishing in the Eastern Sierra and my feet held up well in them. Dove and Quail season will tell if they were as good as my first pair. Love my Meindl Boots!

    Great boot!

    These boots fit great right out of the box. I used to wear romeos and my feet started hurting even though the size was right. When I switched to the Meindle's the support has corrected all of my foot problems.

    High quality and comfort

    This is my 4th pair of Meindl boots and the quality on each has been outstanding (I get about 2-years of daily wear per pair). I do like this pair over the light hikers for the extra height and lace hooks. These are my "daily drivers" and feel more like comfortable slippers than hiking boots. The treads can shed clay mud (and doggy doo-doo) while providing reliable traction. My overall experience with Meindl boots is that they deliver quality and performance. They are worth the $$.
