Hanwag, based in the Bavarian town of Vierkirchen at the foot of the Alps, has been producing high-quality outdoor footwear for more than 90 years. Founded in 1921 by Hans Wagner, the company is steeped in heritage and continues to combine highly prized, traditional construction methods with up-to-the-minute innovations and advanced components.
Backed by almost a century of boot-making expertise, Hanwag is very proud of its heritage and continues to combine proven construction techniques with the latest materials and design innovations. Every pair of boots is manufactured in Europe using a high-quality last construction technique that is exceptionally stable and fully resoleable. Hanwag is also one of the few remaining footwear brands with the expertise to produce exclusive double-stitched or ‘Zwiegenӓht’ footwear.
Hanwag believes that a great pair of boots starts with the perfect ﬁt and with this in mind, it manufactures its range of footwear on a selection of specialist lasts. With Narrow, Wide, Bunion and Straight Fit options as well as activity-speciﬁc lasts, there is a boot for every foot within the bootmaker’s extensive range. All Hanwag footwear is constructed from top quality components and premium leather or fabrics for out of the box comfort.
With the mountains and the outdoors as its inspiration, the issue of sustainability is close to Hanwag’s heart. The company aims to minimise its carbon footprint across every aspect of its production and is unfaltering in its search for evermore eco-friendly materials.
