Meindl is one of the few boot factories with proper production located in Germany. In their factory in Kirchanschöring in Bavaria, over 200 colleagues are employed in making boots – good boots! They are continuing a centuries-old tradition because Meindl has made boots in Kirchanschöring for over 300 years.

Even if handcraft 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. Meindl’s master shoe-makers have the sensitivity, experience and commitment that a natural product such as leather, the principal boot material, needs, and they implement their very own quality-assurance systems.

Meindl has 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 one of the best boot makers worldwide.
