Gear tests

Every year we submit Meindl’s footwear for gear testing by outdoor enthusiasts and writers. It’s a great way to put the walking boots and walking shoes to the test in different terrains and to get a third-party view of their performance, comfort, versatility and value for money. It’s also a great way to offer reassurance to wearers, who seek out reliable brands for their outdoor adventures.

Recently, we have worked with Country Walking, submitting two of our best-selling styles for gear testing.

Respond Lady GTX walking shoes:

  • 4* on comfort
  • 4* on performance
  • 4* on versatility
  • 4* on value for money
  • The magazine’s gear testers confirmed our Lady GTX shoes are “best for low-level walks in varying conditions” with a special note for being “Great in the rain!”

Peru GTX walking boots:

  • Comfort: 5/5
  • Support: 5/5
  •  Versatility: 4/5
  • Value for money: 4/5
  • Total score: 18/20
