An innovative, 3-4 season mountain boot. Perfect for year-round hill walking and mountain treks below the snowline.
Meindl’s Vakuum GTX is a tough, comfortable boot, perfect for mountain treks.
The Memory Foam System
(MFS) allows the Vakuum GTX
to mould around your foot leaving you with a capability to keep your feet secure and supported without risk of rubbing.
The GORE-TEX® waterproof lining provides you with protection from the weather while allowing great ventilation around your foot making sure you don't feel clammy or wet in warmer/wetter conditions or when you start to put effort in for that final push.
The cuff on the boot is padded for extra ankle support and the Multigrip Vibram sole, ideal for muddy, varied and rough terrain. At 800g per boot, the Vakuum is lightweight and ready to get to the top of any peak.

Meindl Vakuum GTX 28th March 2017, 28 March 2017
By Bob H (Black Country)
I bought these boots 3 years ago now and they're still going strong! I've worn through all seasons and in all environments, from walking on roads, tracks, mud, snow, scree, rocks and probably some other stuff I can't remember! My longest walk in these boots was 36 miles in 12 hours in solid rain (Shropshire 6 summits walk).
Have I ever had blisters or sore feet? NO
Have they ever leaked? NO
Are they the best boots I've ever worn after 50 years of hill walking? YES
Would I buy another pair when (if) they finally wear out? YOU BET YOUR SWEET BIPPY!

These boots are amazing and worth every penny. They mould to the shape of your feet and keep them very warm even in snowy conditions. I am so pleased I chose them, they are worth every penny I spent on them.

I had high hopes for these boots but sadly they failed to deliver.
The memory foam inner padding sounds good in theory but in reality you can't really tell it's there, particularly behind the heel. Also, the boots weigh a TON. Seriously it's like you're wearing the iron boots from Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
My feet really didn't take to these boots and I keep getting blisters on both feet after relatively short low incline walks.
I bought a size 12 and my feet seemed to have ample room behind the heel when I moved my feet forward.
It's a shame really because they cost a lot of money and the quality is brilliant.

After a lengthy process of selecting the right boot I eventually settled on these.
I had great difficulty finding a well fitting boot (presumably due to my odd feet!) and tried many pairs from a range of brands. The Vakuum work for me because the memory foam moulds to the foot. I've used them on a wide range of terrains in Snowdonia and they perform perfectly. They are a bit bulky if there's a lot of scrambling involved but over-wise sure-footed on all path types.
Good points: very comfortable, secure fitting, well built, warm in the winter, not over-hot in summer, never had a blister.
Not so good: quite bulky feeling, very slippy on ice. I use a lighter boot for general walking on good surfaces
I'm keeping them well fed with G-Wax, there's a little cracking of the leather around the creases but no leaks.
Money well spent and I hope they last many years!
