Introducing the latest walking boots and shoes from Meindl...

A new twist on an old favourite: Vakuum Walker GTX

The new Vakuum Walker is available in both the men’s and women’s ranges, in full and half sizes. This style incorporates Meindl’s Vakuum technologies to provide a personalised fit and superb comfort.

There’s a Memory Foam System throughout the upper and footbed. It uses your body heat to mould your feet and create a customised fit. The compression zone at the back of the boot provides support and comfort – reducing pressure on the Achilles when walking downhill. And the lacing system provides a secure heel fit that removes any heel lift, which could cause discomfort. It all adds up to a great feeling boot.

Following tradition, the Vakuum Walker is constructed by hand using the finest quality waxed nubuck leather. Nubuck gives durability whilst maintaining suppleness. You will also find

  • a GORE-TEX membrane for waterproofing
  • an Air-Active footbed for breathability
  • a Meindl Multi Trail rubber sole for excellent grip

Try the Vakuum Walker for lower-level walking all year-round.

A superb all-rounder: Utah GTX

Meindl Utah GTX is a very comfortable leather and fabric boot for use in the hills and lower level tracks and paths. The Meindl rubber grip sole provides excellent shock absorbency and grip on uneven terrain. A GORE-TEX lining means that the boot is waterproof and the lower cut cuff ensures no pressure against the achilles. A superb all round boot.

Utah GTX walking boot feature guide:

* Nubuck leather upper and fabric

* Air Active footbed
* Meindl rubber grip sole
* Waterproof

Available in men’s and women’s, full and half sizes.

A welcome addition to the wide fit range: Terlan GTX

Terlan GTX and Terlan Lady GTX join Meindl’s Comfort Fit range of walking boots and shoes, which is suitable for people with wider feet.

The suede and mesh upper means this is a lightweight yet supportive boot and the addition of a GORE-TEX lining ensures that it’s waterproof and durable in all weather conditions.

The Comfort Fit footbed is made from cork and covered with fleece. It provides a wider surface area at the front of the boot. This combination of materials and shape allows for comfort, support and stability underfoot. And there is more room for your toes.

Terlan GTX and Terlan Lady GTX also boast a Meindl Multigrip sole. Made by Vibram, it has an EVA shock absorber that reduces impact and gives plenty of cushioning.

Love hill-walking and have wider feet? The Terlan GTX and Terlan Lady GTX are well worth a look.

Care tips

Sportwax is a natural product that’s formulated to condition and proof leather. It’s ideal for all of the boots highlighted in this article.

Simply apply it with a sponge or cloth – don’t forget the tongues of the boots.

Rub the wax in well.

There’s no need to heat it, as this could reduce boot breathability.

Waxing changes the appearance of the leather, making it smoother and darker.

Applying a little wax to the hooks and eyelets also protects them against corrosion.

Looking ahead to warmer days: Hawaii

As Meindl wearers would expect, even their sandals are constructed from tough materials and have a great build quality.

Hawaii is a unisex walking sandal that benefits from the family’s 300 years of experience in creating durable and comfortable footwear. They have a closed toe for extra protection, nubuck leather and suede uppers, and a clima lining that ensures both comfort against the skin and quick drying after exposure to water.

The Air Active footbed is the same as that used in Meindl shoes – it can be removed and replaced with a personal orthotic, one of the few sandals on the market with this feature. 

The superb Vibram rubber grip sole with EVA shock absorber means that these sandals can be used for serious off-trail walks. 

We recommend the Meindl Hawaii for trails and paths, beach walks, hot summer weather and daily leisure use.

Adding a splash of bright colour: Finale GTX

Meindl Finale is a lightweight trail shoe designed for active on-road and off-road sports adventures. Available in men’s and women’s, full and half sizes.

Constructed from velour and mesh uppers with a GORE-TEX lining, this shoe is hard-wearing, protective in wet weather conditions, and a reliable partner.

The shoe is well ventilated and the Air-Active footbed ensures any unwanted moisture is wicked away from the foot. The Vibram sole unit with an EVA shock absorber completes the build, offering excellent traction on a wide variety of terrains.

Finale is a bright and breezy looking shoe that provides the wearer with the utmost comfort when walking.
