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


Versatile Uninsulated Early Season Boot

This is a classic uninsulated hiker style with built-in support and comfort features. Meindl's Memory Foam System® that wraps your entire foot in shape-conforming, foot-hugging comfort. Plus, your feet are cushioned by the Air Active Soft Print Drysoles made of a combination of Memory Foam (which molds to your footprint and helps distribute weight across your entire foot), as well as a layer of fleece and and absorbent top layer that wicks moisture. These are handcrafted, starting with high-quality leather for durability and support, plus they are lined with 100-percent waterproof Gore-Tex® to keep water out while allowing perspiration vapor to escape. There's also a protective rubber rand around the entire boot to fend off bumps and abrasions. Meindl's DiGafix® lacing system is unique in that it prevents pressure points while comfortably wrapping the upper boot around your instep. The Vibram® Multigriff outsole, a Meindl exclusive, provides multi-directional traction and a stable walking platform thanks to the innovative multi-directional tread. The outsole is backed by a shock-absorbing polyurethane midsole that helps buffer you from the bump and grind of hard walking. Made in Germany

    Superior Customer Service

    This is my third pair of Meindl boots and they are absolutely wonderful. I can not imagine buying any other brand. They are solid, comfortable and very well made. However after 6 months the rand developed some cracking. While I did not think that I could be happier with this company they proved me wrong. I reached out to customer service and they initiated a warranty claim instantly. A few weeks later they sent me a beautiful brand new pair. Meindl is the Best!

    The best hiking boots out there!

    I love boots, I've treasured boots from the time I graduated from the police academy to this day, some three decades later. When I venture outdoors, my go-to footwear is boots, rather than sandals (of any kind).

    These are probably the best trekking boots I've owned, rivalled only by Scarpa whose soles started coming off recently after 8 years of continuous wear. This in no way is to suggest the other Meindl boots are inferior to the Bergel MFS Hiker that I bought (along with the Chukka). They may even be better, but this only shows the Meindl brand is at the very top.

    Follow-up review

    I posted a review of this boot earlier. It is an excellent boot. I now have about 90 miles on them, and just finished some really rugged mountain hikes in the Blue Ridge and Smoky mountain ranges. The boots were really good. They were tough and comfortable the whole way. Most particularly, and importantly, they were comfortable coming down off the mountains. Ten miles and more of continuous down the mountain can be really hard on feet, and these boots did great. As always, the proper size is key, but the inner form fitting cushion system molded pretty much perfectly to my feet. The boots are holding up perfectly too. No part of the boot is showing any quality issue and they still look fresh. There is no doubt in my mind, I would not hesitate to buy this boot all over again when the time comes. I truly love these boots. They are an outstanding pair of boots.

    Best boot brand I've ever owned.

    This is my second pair of Meindls. For me Meindls fit like a glove. Not too stiff, excellent support and very comfortable. I expect these to serve me well for a long time. My first pair are over 10 years old and have never let me down, never leaked through the Gore-tex. Their customer service is great at answering question in helping me get the right pair and fit.
