Hanwag is a German alpine footwear brand founded by Hans Wagner in 1921. Based in Vierkirchen near Munich, and with the Bavarian Alps on its doorstep, Hanwag's heritage is deeply rooted in the mountains, and its shoes are the epitome of high quality Bavarian craftmanship. From hiking and trekking to mountaineering and via ferrata, the Hanwag range caters to anyone who wants to explore the mountains.
Ever since the first boots went into production, Hanwag has continued to evolve and innovate, creating boots that are known for their functionality and comfort. The brand uses a variety of different lasts - including wide, narrow, straight-fit and even bunion - to cater to all shapes and sizes, and provide the perfect fit. Hanwag boots are also made to last, and each piece of footwear is fully resoleable, helping to minimise wastage and provide unbeatable durability.
Sustainability is an important part of the Hanwag ethos, and the brand's manufacturing process aims to keep its impact on environment to a minimum. This is achieved through using local producers to reduce CO2 emissions, by reducing the use of fluorocarbons, and by using eco-friendly leather tanneries.
