For footwear that’s as tough as you are, check out the Hanwag Alaska GTX Boots. Popular with law enforcement officers and military personnel, these heavy boots are made with a nubuck upper and a waterproof GORE-TEX lining. The semi-rigid sole is made by Vibram—an Italian company credited with inventing the first rubber lug. As for the shape, the boots are meant to sit high, above the ankle, for support on craggy, muddy, or slippery terrain. The shock-absorbing heel is flexible for comfort on long treks, and the lacing system is designed for stability and quick laceups. Plus, their cemented construction allows you to resole the boots time and again.
Note: At checkout, choose the men's boots size US 7.5–11.5, 12.5–14; or the women's boot in US 6–10.
Named for its founder, Hans Wagner, Hanwag brings traditional craftsmanship and technical expertise to every pair of boots in its product line. Made with materials sourced exclusively from European suppliers, the uppers, lining, and reinforcements are prepared using simple, hand-operated machinery before being double-stitched. The craftsmen then use special techniques to enhance air circulation and reduce the number of seams, which minimizes rubbing and pressure points.
