We use only the best materials which are meticulously selected, masterly crafted, and expertly finished. Every piece of leather is individually assessed for quality before being transformed into a boot. Components are carefully and deliberately selected to be a perfect match to the products purpose.

Continuous improvement through always questioning, always listening and always striving. By combining proven materials such as leather with new technologies and processes continues to push Meindl beyond any other brand.

Crafted to enjoy nature, not harm it. Only a respectful and careful approach to business ensures that our brand grows without expense to the environment. Careful selection and operation of production facilities with minimised waste and Carbon output is at the forefront of our plan.

 People are the core of our business. Every single one of our boots is touched by Human hands. Working for our community and right treatment of our people is central to our business model.

We produce with respect for our people and through service to those who protect our society and our environment.

Over 300 years of technological progress in the family company and still the ideal of highest quality and pride of craft is the arbiter of every pair of our boots. This legacy underpins every pair of boots that bares the Meindl name.

Our philosophy is that the Human hand cannot be removed from the production. Only the Human eye and hand can be trained to the level of skill and perception required to produce to the highest standard.
