Over the years, Meindl boots have been trusted all over the world – right from Mount Everest expeditions to pounding the pavement on city breaks. The Meindl family have continued to develop their footwear and innovation lies at the heart of Meindl. Alfons Meindl was one of the first shoemakers to use a GORE-TEX membrane in a boot, making it waterproof and breathable.

Meindl’s home is one of the few remaining boot factories in Germany. Lukas and Lars employ 200 master shoemakers all with the experience, attention to detail and commitment that a natural product, such as leather, needs. There are over 200 steps required to manufacture every single high-quality walking boot that steps out of the Meindl factory.  We are proud to be a leading UK stockist for Meindl with a wide range of styles for men & women, including aftercare products and socks to kit you out for all your outdoor adventures.


How To Care For Your Meindl Respond GTX shoes

  • Preparation: Take the footbed out, so it can dry out.
  • Cleaning: Remove the worst of the dirt under running water with a brush; also remove dirt and stones from the sole.
  • Hygiene: To improve the odour of your shoes, clean the inside of your shoes with luke-warm water and a brush. This doesn’t hurt the lining. Leather linings without GORE-TEX® can be cleaned with washing soap; only use water on linings with GORE-TEX®.
  • Drying: Never dry shoes in direct sunlight or on heat-generating units such as radiators or stoves. Wet leather is very sensitive to heat and “burns” easily (i.e. it becomes brittle and hard, and then gets cracked).
    When the lining is wet, stuff shoes with newspaper (don’t forget to remove later!).
  • Spraying: It’s best to do this when the shoes are not quite dry. The pores are still open and the spray penetrates deeper.
  • Hooks and Eyelets: Protect against corrosion with wax or Vaseline.
