Meindl outdoor shoes for men and women
Tradition and craftsmanship are values that are still highly valued in our fast-moving times. Nevertheless, fewer and fewer outdoor brands are relying on traditional, handcrafted manufacturing in Germany as a production location. Not so the family business Meindl from the Bavarian Kirchanschöring: Already in the ninth generation the Meindls are shoemakers in the small community in the Chiemgau. In 1928, Lukas Meindl Senior laid the foundation for the popular outdoor brand, which then as now stands for quality craftsmanship and durable footwear.
The product range of the Bavarian label includes functional outdoor, mountain and hiking shoes as well as traditional goat-sewn oatmeal shoes and trendy casual shoes for everyday wear. Today, Meindl produces over a million pairs of shoes and delivers them to the most important outdoor markets in the world. Many prizes and awards, including the ISPO Innovations Award and the European Outdoor Award, testify to the innovative strength and creativity of the company, which became a pioneer in the outdoor sector early on: Meindl was one of the first footwear brands in Europe to use the revolutionary Gore-Tex technology in the early 1980s. In 1978, Hubert Hillmaier became the third German ever to climb Mount Everest in Meindl mountain boots, and in 2012 the label supplied the right footwear for Felix Baumgartner's spectacular stratospheric jump from a height of 39 kilometers. Meindl is also always one step ahead when it comes to sustainability and transparency: Meindl is the first shoe manufacturer in the world to provide detailed proof of origin for the leather used in its Identity models - and it comes from organic cattle from the region around Kirchanschöring.
Whether hiking, walking, mountaineering or traveling - Meindl has the right shoe for every outdoor adventure. Many models are equipped with a Gore-Tex membrane and can therefore be used in a wide range of weather conditions. Numerous innovative features, such as Meindl's Air-Active technology and VarioFix lacing system, ensure perfect walking comfort. We now offer you a selection of the most popular Meindl hiking and multi-functional shoes for men and women in the Schuhdealer online store.
