Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean




Perfect for any adventure, the Meindl Activo GTX is a casual approach shoe.


  • Velour and mesh uppers
  • GORE-TEX lining
  • Air-Active Wellness Sport footbed
  • Meindl Lite Trail rubber grip sole with EVA shock absorber – Comfort
  • Waterproof protection

A closer look
Perfect for those in search of a wider fit, the Comfort-fit last offers more space at the front of the foot, with no tapering, and a firm grip on the heel. The extra width gives more room for your toes, especially across the flex point. The footbed is wider and more supportive than standard footbeds, because it gives you more surface area to stand on. The shock absorber reduces the impact of each footstep, while a fleece covering and integrated pad supply even greater comfort.

A two-zone, Duo-Lacing system pulls the shoe together to guarantee a precise fit. The GORE-TEX lining and Air-Active footbed keeps feet dry, and the Meindl Lite Trail rubber grip sole provides security when the path is a little unsteady.

  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by John Eaton, on 25/10/2022 11:56:39

    2nd pair Ive bought of these as first pair were great. Only down side is that like most GoreTex products they only stay waterproof for a short period unfortunately.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Ray Kelly , on 09/08/2022 14:00:08

    The great thing about Meindl shoes is they come in a wide fit. So if you have wide feet and want to avoid bunions and other issues definitely choose them
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Valerie Moore , on 08/07/2022 10:22:22

    I am a woman and because I have a damaged toe on one foot I had to buy larger than a UK size 8 - so I had to buy a mens trainer. The product is excellent but I feel like a freak, and brightening it up with colourful laces does not remove the feeling that Miendl are punishing women for not being dainty enough. For goodness sake, why do they not manufacture attractive ladies trainers in bright colours above UK size 8?!
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Mark, on 26/05/2022 13:00:36

    Great product for a good price (good as everything could be cheaper) they are comfortable, wider than normal which is great for me! First time wearing for me was a 10mins walk could have gone all day
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Paul Lewis, on 26/04/2022 15:17:10

    Second pair of Meindl walking shoes purchased from Taunton Leisure. Needed a wider fit shoe and these are perfect, very comfortable and arrived very quickly.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Pete Lawson, on 12/04/2022 09:42:36

    Bought these after searching for wide fit walking shoes (to accommodate my bunion!) and they certainly do that job. However, I think I was expecting a slightly sturdier shoe (I’ve had Meindl’s before) - these have more of a feel of a trainer with softish uppers, although that made them very wearable straight out of the box. Good service from Taunton Leisure - quick dispatch and delivery, thank you.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Pauline Metcalfe, on 27/12/2021 22:05:44

    Bought as a Christmas present for someone who has had Meindl footwear before. Gift was well received. Shoes were good quality and fitted well.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by David C. Wood, on 08/11/2021 16:53:21

    A brilliant walking shoe for people with wide feet. Meindl boots and shoes are the best.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by J Eaton, on 04/09/2021 10:54:16

    Only had chance to have one good walk in these so far, but first impressions are very good. I have wide feet and these are the best Ive found for them. Time will tell.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Leo, on 30/08/2021 22:19:43

    Taunton Leisure promised and delivered, as did Meindl walking shoes, promised a wide fit and they were. Thank you Taunton Leisure and Meindl, I now have very happy walking feet 😄
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Peter Knight, on 22/06/2021 15:14:09

    Extremely comfortable from new. Good grip and improved lacing.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by phil, on 17/02/2021 16:56:43

    Pros...It is a very well made shoe and it is a wide fit so it is comfortable straight from the box. It was also completely waterproof in all the recent snow we had. Cons ...It lacks cushioning under the forefoot and so you will need well cushioned hiking socks or a cushioned insole if you intend to walk for more than a couple of hrs. I am disappointed for the price paid and will stick to trail running shoes in future which offer more cushioning under foot.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Keith Hanson, on 11/02/2021 13:42:50

    My shoes were delivered very promptly and fit like a glove. I need wide shoes and these are ideal. Overall quality is good as is grip.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Ian, on 01/09/2020 11:41:40

    Excellent comfortable shoes for walking. I usually take a wide fitting shoe, these are a good fit.
  • Meindl Mens Activo GTX Shoe - Anthracite-Ocean review by Si, on 21/09/2019 06:46:00

    I have wider feet than normal so I like Meindls comfort fit range. Ive been wearing these approach shoes for low level and coastal walking all summer long. Walking up to 10miles I find these light weight shoes very comfortable. As with all footwear, dont forget to the socks.
