I was lucky enough to go to meet the Meindls and visit the Meindl UK Ltd factory. And what a place it is. Would you believe that someone with the Meindl name ha…s been making boots in the same Bavarian town for 300 years now! That’s what I call a family tradition. And they still have that passion for making high quality boots and shoes and keeping the brand rooted to its Bavarian heritage.
This factory is the perfect blend of old meets new, you have old machines no longer produced, being used for classic double stitch boots and a new state of the art warehouse distribution centre. And 3rd and 4th generation shoemakers alongside the new shoe maker apprentices looking to continue the town’s history.
Below are some pictures and info on the factory.
