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

"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."

    Mini lightweight version Denalis

    I think this is an excellent boot. I put on 36 miles in 2.5 dsys while elk hunting in rough terrain. No problems. The boots fit as well as my.older pair of 8 year old Meindl Cabelas Denalis but have less ankle support

    Greenland Denmark

    The Vakuum Hiker performed great when hiking on the tundra and mountains in Greenland Denmark. The ancle support was needed walking over the uneven terrain, the soles gripped the rock in steep areas, and the boot felt good around the feet when ascending and descending.

    Great Boot

    My second pair of Meindl boots. They are extremely comfortable right out of the box. I've only put about 15 miles on them, but anticipate no issues. Yesterday I hiked in heavy wet grass and brush and the outsides of the boots were soaked. My feet stayed dry with no problem. The boots are about a 1/2 size larger than the stated size, so follow Meindl's advice and order a 1/2 size down.

    Vakuum® Hiker review

    As expected. I've worn nothing by Meindl for hunting and hiking purposes since 2006. My hunt and hike excursions are always in rough country, often off-trail, and when on-trail I'm almost never on forest service trails. I tend to follow wild game trails. They have been nothing short of excellent in durability, comfort, and service.
