Meindl Glockner is an extreme Alpine Trekking boot made to take punishment. An excellent choice for Outdoor Professionals, High Country Farmers and Alpine Hunters  who regularly traverse challenging mountainous terrain.

The stiff shank and ankle support with a small amount of toe flex combined with aggressive sole toe taper allows comfortable heel-toe walking on steep country whilst being highly supportive during sidling. The Meindl Glockner is a tough alpine trekking boot, built to withstand heavy use in the Alpine environment and anywhere steep gradients are traversed. It’s intended uses span from professional-level alpine trekking and hunting, through to high country farming in steep terrain.  Dense and thick leather, high and thick protective rubber rand and minimal exposed external seams combine to reduce the chance of wear and tear related damage.


A Trekking boot last is used (rather than a very narrow alpine last) in order to balance a snug fit against the need to cater for those with wider/above average volume feet. The stiff alpine climbing polyamide shank combines with the snug fit, the low flexibility structural support and the narrow outsole profile to create an excellent stability platform for toeing-in, sidling, edging, climbing and crampon use in steep mountainous terrain. Ideal for movement across broken and steep alpine terrain when load carriage is medium to heavy (20-40kg+).

A favourite boot amongst pro-users who demand longevity despite constant use such as Outdoor Guides, Farmers, Professional Climbers, Conservation Operators and Professional Hunters.

Advice from Meindl

  • The boot is an ideal choice when you are carrying medium to heavy alpine loads (20-40+kg) in steep and dangerous terrain.
  • As far as alpine boots go, the fit of these is quite generous, especially in volume and around the toe box. We've found them suitable to fit most wide fit users without issues. Some users with narrower feet will require volume spacers to tighten up the boot fit.
  • This boot is not quite as rigid as the Tyrol. The Glockner has some toe flex which allows more comfortable trekking across alpine terrain. Tyrol is rigid.
  • Ankle support is substantial in these boots and some (not all) users will find them impossible for use on prolonged trail walks. A BC category boot is recommended for crossing medium and broken terrain and walks on tracks.
  • Apply Meindl Sport Wax liberally to the heel flex zone, the exposed seams and toe flex zones to prevent leather drying and cracking in these high wear zones.
  • Take care to read the Nubuk leather care instructions in this website and don’t dry them too fast by the fire in the hut 😉!
