Meindl Vakuum Men Fit II Slim
The Vakuum Fit II Slim is a perfect day hiking boot that is equally comfortable on shorter hikes and around the city. These boots are the narrowest of the three fits in the Vakuum Fit II Line and we recommend coming in to see which one will work the best for you.
A/B class boots are more flexible than a B Class boot and have a slightly softer upper, but provide more stability than a walking shoe. They are most suited to day hiking on maintained paths or walking around grassy areas where you might want more protection, waterproofing, and stability than a shoe. This class of boot is what is most often used in law enforcement and can be dyed black to meet uniform requirements.
- Upper: Nubuck Leather
- Lining: GORE-TEX
- Footbed: Air-Active® Soft Print Drysole

Constant waxing of the leather is critical to maintaining the overall health of the boots, ensuring they stay waterproof and extending their. We recommend any beeswax-based product such as Meindl Sportwax. Waxing changes the appearance of the leather, making it smoother and darker.
There's no strict rule for how often to wax the boots but if you notice that water isn't beading off the boot anymore or the leather is looking a little dry, it's time to apply more! Apply it in thin coats all over the boots and rubber guard, since rubber can dry out too. Applying a little to the hooks and eyelets also protects them against corrosion.
If you're heading out on a long trip, it's a good idea to bring a bit of wax and a brush to clean and condition the boots since salt water, mud, and scraping against rocks and rocks will strip the nutrients from the leather.
