MEINDL ANTHRACITE/RED AUCKLAND GTX WALKING BOOTS
Once there were proper boot manufacturers in Germany – hundreds of boot factories. Today, Meindl is one of the few boot factories with proper production located in Germany. At their factory in Kirchanschöring in Bavaria, over 200 colleagues are employed in making boots – good boots, continuing a centuries-old tradition, because Meindl has made boots in Kirchanschöring for over 300 years. Even if their hand craft production is today supported by modern equipment, each machine is operated by a person, carrying out one of over 200 work steps that are required in manufacturing a high-quality walking boot. Their master shoe-makers have the sensitivity, the experience and the commitment that a natural product such as leather, the principal material, needs, and they implement their own quality-assurance systems. Meindl have not renounced hand-crafted quality in favour of breaking into the mass market. With ingenuity, flexibility and market focus, they make boots of hand-made quality, which is what the market expects from them.
Producing over one million pairs of boots and shoes annually and supplying them for the most important outdoor markets of the world. Up mountains, when Nordic walking, in the city, out hiking – no matter where you are walking in the world, Meindl boots are reliable companions for your feet.
