Shoes and the outdoors ran in the Wagner family’s blood. Inspired by his father and grandfather, Hans founded Hanwag in 1921 in Bavaria, with two brothers also founding their own shoe ventures. As outdoor sports developed, Hanwag shoes gained a strong hold in the emerging market, using double-stitching or a cemented construction, focusing on robust durability perfect for hiking, trekking, and alpine adventure. Boots for women and men like the Tatra GTX, the Alaska GTX, the Alta Bunion are comfortable and reliable. Stringently environmentally-conscious, Hanwag continues to be a world leader in outdoor hiking and trekking footwear.
