Meindl Comfort-fit

Wide fitting walking boots and shoes

Getting to know the Comfort-fit range

Comfort fit® is the name of Meindl’s wide-fitting range of walking shoes and boots.

The styles in the Comfort fit® series range from light multifunctional shoes to classic leather walking boots. In each case, the entire construction of the boot or shoe is geared towards comfort and the perfect fit.

Comfort fit® features and benefits:

  • Wide at the front, compact at the back – for a particularly comfortable fit
  • Pain-free walking thanks to more toe freedom, ball width, and straightening of the big toes
  • A special footbed for optimal support, which also offers space for orthopaedic insoles
  • Easier walking thanks to a shaped sole construction that is geared towards a natural rolling motion

The Meran GTX walking boots and Philadelphia GTX walking shoes are both flagship styles in the Meindl Comfort fit® range and are widely available via our UK stockists.

It’s worth considering a Comfort fit® style if you:

  • Have wide feet
  • Require more volume in your shoes or boots
  • Have special requirements for foot comfort
  • Use orthotics

And if you’ve had your eye on one of Meindl’s standard fitting bestsellers here’s our quick guide to their wider fitting equivalent: 

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Bhutan Men's MFS?

The Adamello GTX walking boot is wider in the forefoot giving more room for the toes, and it has a firm hold at the heel for a secure fit. The boot features a GORE-TEX membrane, which means it is guaranteed waterproof.

This wider-fitting hill walking boot is designed for those seeking the performance and specification of Meindl’s best-selling Bhutan and Borneo boots but with a wider fit.

It also has a high-specification Comfort fit® cork footbed, which gives great stability but can be removed to accommodate a customised orthotic.

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Bhutan Lady MFS?

The Bernina Lady 2 GTX is a classic walking boot that offers a wider fit than the standard-fitting Meindl Bhutan MFS but all the same technology and comfort. It has more room around the toes and a greater boot capacity overall.

The Bernina Lady 2 GTX boots are GORE-TEX lined and have Memory Foam around the heel area for enhanced comfort and a secure fit. The technology behind Meindl’s Digafix also improves heel hold and stability, preventing the foot from slipping in the boot.

The cork Comfort fit® footbed from Meindl is known to provide a stable platform, whilst the defined sole contour allows for a natural roll of your foot when walking. 

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Kansas GTX?

Boasting 300 years of skilled shoemaking, Meindl introduced the Comfort fit® range to provide a supportive, easy fit with an enhanced natural rolling movement.

Meran GTX’s uppers are made from Nubuck leather with wax providing a durable exterior. Paired with a GORE-TEX lining the boot is fully waterproof and protective in all conditions.

The Meran GTX comes complete with a Meindl Comfort Hiker sole guaranteeing a strong grip on a variety of surfaces. Ideal for light hikes and trails, it’s an excellent alternative to the standard-fitting Meindl Kansas GTX.

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Borneo 2 MFS?

We talked about the Lady version of this style above but it is also available in Men’s, which is an excellent wider-fitting alternative to the popular Meindl Borneo 2 MFS.

The leather lining makes these boots more comfortable in warmer and more humid conditions due to a cooler foot climate. The cork Comfort fit® footbed from Meindl is known to provide a stable platform as you’re standing on a wider base, whilst the defined contour allows for the natural roll of your foot when walking.

Comfort fit® styles from Meindl are known for their out-of-the-box comfort, minimal breaking-in is required.

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Tonale GTX?

Being part of Meindl’s Comfort fit® range, the Terlan GTX offers excellent support and a naturally relaxed fit. The uppers are made from suede and mesh providing a lightweight yet supportive boot.

As with its standard-fitting counterpart, the addition of a GORE-TEX lining ensures that the boot is waterproof and durable in all weather conditions, and a rubber rand protects against abrasion on rougher terrain.

The Terlan GTX boasts a Meindl Multigrip (by Vibram) sole with EVA shock absorber meaning reduced impact and lots of cushioning. It’s a boot that’s perfect for hill-walking if you have a wider foot.

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Respond GTX?

The Journey Pro GTX is a close equivalent to the standard-fitting and bestselling Respond GTX. It’s the perfect choice for light hiking, leisurely walks, and everyday wear.

With uppers made from a combination of lightweight mesh and Nubuck leather, the Journey Pro GTX is durable and supportive with a modern sporty look. The GORE-TEX lining complements this by enhancing breathability and ensuring waterproof protection.

The Air-Active Wellness Sport footbed goes one step ahead of other walking shoes, offering superb heel support and ensuring any unwanted moisture is wicked away in an instant. 

Which wide fitting style is equivalent to Meindl Respond Mid GTX?

The Journey Mid GTX is the ideal lightweight option for those requiring a wider fit than our bestselling Respond Mid GTX.

Perfect for leisurely hikes, the uppers are made from Nubuck leather and mesh providing a durable yet breathable frame. With a wider fit at the front of the shoe, the Air-Active footbed provides more room for movement, particularly in the flex zone, whilst ensuring a snug, supportive hold of the heel.

Not only does it wick away unwanted moisture build-up, but the footbed is also contoured to the shape of the foot providing a shoe that is exceedingly comfortable for all-day use. The Meindl Comfort Sport sole is also high performing with excellent shock absorption and a good grip profile for when tracks get a little tricky.
