Open Air have been stockists of Meindl shoes and boots since we opened in 1990.
Meindl are a family-owned brand who can trace the history of shoe-making within their family back to 1683. Lars and Lukas Meindl, the current owners, are the ninth generation of the family, still based in Kirchanschöring in Bavaria, Southern Germany. Known for their quality and innovation as well as tradition, Meindl are one of our best-selling footwear brands, with a loyal following amongst our customers. In Open Air, Meindl constitutes the wider-fitting part of our footwear range, with the Comfort Fit last, with its wider forefoot and higher internal volume, being especially popular. Most Meindl models can be resoled, and this is done at the factory in Germany.
