Comfort, grip and waterproofing with plenty of support

The Mens Toronto GTX from Meindl is a full grain leather boot, designed to provide comfort, grip and waterproofing with plenty of support for treks and demanding hikes in less extreme conditions.

Using supple leather uppers for great comfort straight from the box, the Meindl Men's Toronto GTX Boot boasts a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex lining for optimum weather protection. If you don't need a heavy-duty pair of boots - but your walking exploits still take in varied terrain - then the balance of support and comfort you'll get from the Toronto GTX could very well be ideal.

Connecting you to the trail, be it muddy puddles or more rocky terrain, the Toronto features a grippy Vibram sole unit with a shock-absorbing EVA wedge for maximum underfoot comfort.

Excellent lightweight boots
Reviewed By Simon, 19 May 2015

Bought these as a lightweight pair of walking boots to replace a pair of textile Salomons that leaked after a few months use. They're Meindl, so quality is not a problem! However, as with nearly every boot I've ever purchased, the insoles were replaced with sorbothane full insoles - they just can't be beaten!
The leather toe area of the boots needs regular application of boot wax or renpur to keep them from drying out.
The fit is quite tight, even with the 'right' size, as the boot is slightly narrow and the toe box is relatively small (in comparison to my Meindl Borneos).
Took a little breaking in around the outer edges of the boots, but as with all quality boots this is re-assuring and worth the slight discomfort while the boots mould to your foot.
Heel retention is fine and the lacing system is adjustable and easy to use.
Durability not a problem and after 600 miles they are wearing as expected on the sole extremities.
Completely waterproof which is an absolute must for walking boots, and full grain leather guarantees this in a way that textile and Gor-tex never can!
I completely recommend this boot for 3-season walking on the flat or in the hills.



Very comfortable and secure
Reviewed By Michael, 17 Oct 2014

I purchased a pair of these boots at the end of September and have worn them several times on fairly flat terrain - about 12 - 15 miles per walk.
Initially I went with my regular shoe size (45) but found, after wearing them around the home at different times of the day, that they pinched on the outside of my small toe. Given the stability of the boot it was my impression that my foot would 'break - in' before the boot ever did! To this end I decided to ask for a reassessment (at the Chichester branch in Sussex)
In the final analysis I opted for the next size up (47) in order to accommodate thicker socks (Bridgedales) and foot expansion due to warmth etc.
They are a joy to wear. Despite their 'substantial' build the boots are, in fact, very flexible. I have weak ankles and am forever turning my foot over - the Meindls give great support in this area and this in turn provides confidence.
Whilst I acept that my review is based on two walks only it is my impression these boots are going to last (no pun intended) and give good service.
I'd like to thank Tim at the Chichester branch for accommodating my uncertainty over which size to purchase.
Do buy good socks with these boots - it makes such a difference.
Hope this helps.



Initially comfortable but not hardwearing
Reviewed By peter, 28 Aug 2014

I purchased these boots 12 months ago from the Covent Garden branch. The staff were as helpful as always and the boots were easy and comfortable to walk in initially. However it was soon noticeable that the boots lack grip in the toe and feet tend to slip on inclines. The rubber soles are quite soft and did not stand up to rocky tracks very well, with cuts and damage visible a couple of days into and backpacking trip. The soles have now started to come away and the rubber sole has split on the toe of one boot forming a flap allowing water in. This is the first time a leather boot in this price range and manufacturer has let me down in this way. I am quite disappointed with the product.
I would not recommend this boot.



Best walking boots I have had
Reviewed By , 27 Mar 2014

The guy at Cotswolds was really careful helping me chose the right boots and he was spot on. These are my first Meindl's and they were comfortable straight from the box. I have waxed them regularly and they are almost like wellies - perfect for a hard day in Cheviot peat bog. I regularly walk 50 miles in a week and have never had a blister. My only gripe is after 2 years the left boot is starting to have a gap between leather and sole - I thought they would last longer - hence 4 stars



Got myself a fine pair!
Reviewed By , 26 Mar 2014

Having worn out a cheap pair of textile boots, I decided it was time to invest in a good pair of "proper" leather boots. Also,having wasted money on poorly fitting boots in the past, I thought it made sense to get a proper fitting done at Cotswold Outdoor. I had done my research and had picked out a few pairs of boots that I wanted to try on. After taking my measurements and asking a few questions about the types of walks I usually did, the assistant brought these Meindl Torrontos out. I wasn't sure that they felt right at first because I expected, having been measured, that they would feel perfect, right out of the box and they didn't. I tried two or three different makes of boot on and kept coming back to the Torrontos but, whilst they were the best of the selection, they just didn't quite convince me. We then tried different insoles and lacing techniques to make the Torrontos feel better. After much deliberation, I decided to buy them, as the assistant told me he was happy that these were the best boots for the job, as he was confident with his measuring and knowledge of the boots. He then advised me to wear them around the house as often as possible, prior to first use and bring them back if I wasn't happy. I did this every evening for a week and whilst they improved, I still worried that the first hike would be uncomfortable. I needn't have worried. A short time into the walk and I was no longer thinking about my feet. The boots are great! The best thing though, was the confidence that the fitting service of Cotswold Outdoor gave me, to take the boots on that first walk! (Shhhh don't tell them I told you, but they also price match).



Excellent heavy duty light weight boots
Reviewed By Andrew, 25 Mar 2014

Having been in the box the morning of the walk I was half expecting a blister by the end of the day but I didn’t think about my feet at all. I thought we would be heading up Snowdon but last minute change of plan meant we were climbing Moel Siabod. These boots took a pounding in rough terrain and snow, hale, rain and general bad weather but I was most impressed with the boots. Dry comfortable strong and lightweight. I’m looking forward to heading up Ben Nevis in them in 6 weeks’ time. Excellent boots!



Great Walking boots!!
Reviewed By Julie, 26 Jan 2014

I was looking for my first pair of leather boots, was recommended in the shop to have my feet measured. Tried the Meindl boots on, they felt comfortable straight away! Didn't try any more on. I have been walking most weekends since buying the boots, no problems at all. Very happy!! :)



Very comfy

Just bought these boots. They are extremely comfortable. I'll comment back once I've used them for a while.



I'm converted !!!!!
Reviewed By trevor, 21 Jan 2014

Had to leave this review after recently being talked into trying a pair of leather walking boots after 11 years buying only textiles,, the guy in my local Cotswold shop after measuring my feet and being very patient with me persuaded me to try a pair of Meindl Toronto GTX's wow !!! so comfortable, so solid felt real good straight from the box.First real trail last Sunday on a snow covered Cadair Berwyn, very boggy and very cold,4 peaks and 6 hours later I'm very pleased to report warm, dry and very comfortable feet, I would highly recommend this boots,, here's to many more mountains...



Great strong ,sturdy lightweight boot
Reviewed By steve, 10 Dec 2013

As a diabetic who has a lot of walking planned for next year in mountainous conditions I was keen to get boots that did not rub , blisters I do not need, I went to Cotswold to take advantage of their expert fitting service , the lad who dealt with me at Cotswold Windsor was very knowledgable and took the time to measure and ensure the boots were a good fit ,even loaned a pair of sockets fit for purpose which I also bought, having used the boots for a while now I couldn't be happier now looking forward to using them in ernest throughout next year only small negative would be the laces seem a little too long



Good hill walking boots
Reviewed By P, 22 Sep 2013

I used a pair of these for a week of hill walking in Scotland. They kept the water out despite the typical soggy weather and high stream levels. The vibram soles gave good grip when scrambling. These are available in half sizes! A good balance between foot protection and boot flexibility/comfort.



Meindl Toronto
Reviewed By Stephen, 21 Sep 2013

The sole on the right boot came apart after 10 days walking, & in the process tripped me up on (fortunately) an unexposed section of the AV1 in the Dolomites, resulting (again, fortunately) in a badly bruised knee. Cotswold Outdoor at Cirencester changed them with a minimum of fuss. Has to be a question over their durability. Not impressed.



Meindl toronto
Reviewed By Andy, 11 Sep 2013

Went to cotswold outdoor to get myself a new pair of boots and was greeted by one of the staff and treated very well indeed.
Ended up choosing these boots which i must say feel very comfortable and look great, I have not worn them out as yet but will update this review as soon as i do.



If your thinking of buying this boot - buy it!
Reviewed By Peter, 30 Aug 2013

After a recent visit to Cotswolds in St Albans and after trying on pretty much every boot; I purchases the Toronto GTX.

I can honestly say they are already the best boots I have ever owned. These are my first Meindl's and definitely not my last. I have owned pretty much all the major walking boot brands and no boot has provided so much support whilst also being comfortable and so surprisingly light!

They are comfortable straight out of the box. Waterproof, fairly stylish! But what I love most about these boots is how well supported my ankle is despite how light these boots feel.

I am so happy with these boots I felt compelled to review. You will not be disappointed.



faulty stitching on Two pairs
Reviewed By Andy, 22 Jun 2013

The first pair I bought I returned just after buying them because the stitching had come away on the tongue. Unfortunately I had to return my replacement pair after only going out in the mountains once because the stitching was also faulty. I noticed that these boots scuff easily too and the laces snag. Cotswold staff made returning the boots hassle and stress free. And I always get great service and look forward to visiting again soon. Thou based on my experience with these boots. I can only give one star for looking very aesthetic and sturdy.



'Best Buy' seems justified
Reviewed By David, 18 Jun 2013

Early days yet, but followed Walk magazine recommendation for best buy boots - Meindl Toronto.
Can wear straight away - no breaking in. Very comfortable, light. Looks as if they will be easy to clean, so thus far - very good!

Reviewed By George, 23 Mar 2013

Already written one review but felt compelled to write another. Just come back from walking holiday wwhich included very steep severe mountain walks where the temp was 35 degrees. These boots were brilliant. Good grip great support. Back on the coach people were taking their boots off for relief. I did'nt feel the need to as they are so comfortable. BUY THEM you will not be disappointed



good boots, not so good laces
Reviewed By russell, 12 Mar 2013

I've worn these for about 10 days and the laces need to be replaced! I'd read this was an issue before I purchased them, and, sure enough, one lace has frayed completely. Replaced with Dalesman 150cm Rnd Laces, which were just small enough to get through the eyelets.
Otherwise, boots have been waterproof in boggy conditions, and the grip has been fine.



Brilliant Boots
Reviewed By George, 09 Jan 2013

These boots are so comfortable.Light but sturdy with great support. Hardly need breaking in. Walking in Scotland and hiking up Mountains in Canary Islands. Wore them all day with no fatigue whatsoever. Would highly recommend. The staff in the shop were brilliant in advising and helping me to find the best boots for me.



My first quality walking boots.
Reviewed By Pete, 01 Nov 2012

After wearing cheap boots I realise you get what you pay for. On the plus side they fit like a glove, feel like trainers and are very waterproof. On the down side the grip on hard wet surfaces is not brilliant. I rate them as very good.
