    I'm giving these boots a lukewarm 4----they didn't seem like hiking/trekking boots, because they felt "puffy" and large, like snow boots, so I returned them. When I got these, I also ordered AKU Tetons (from Sierra) which I am ecstatic about (see my review of those boots if you want more insight into my hiking style and size requirements).

    I was excited to get this pair of boots in the mail. They appeared well made and were plenty heavy. However, after only 3 wears a rivet broke. I tried calling and e-mailing Hanwag to no avail. I finally had to break down and pay for the repairs myself, despite them supposedly offering a 1 year warranty. The catch is that they make it beyond difficult to get in touch with customer service, either by phone or e-mail, so you'll eventually just pay for the repair yourself. These were pretty shoddy and the customer service that I finally did get in touch with refused to make it right and offered me a coupon for their store, which is way overpriced to begin with. I will never buy another product from this company.

    I am a forester in Pennsylvania spending 6 to 8 hours daily walking rough terrain. I have tried many brands of boots.
    Hanwag craftsmanship was evident right out of the box. So good I ordered a second pair. Some of the reviews recommended
    ordering a half size larger so I did. I'm between a US 9.5 and 10, so I ordered the 9 UK. I think I would have been fine with
    An 8.5 UK (9.5 US). But with 2 two pairs of socks they feel great. Lightweight and the vibram sole is great for slippery rocks
    and logs. I will be looking for a Hanwag winter boot.

    I was looking for a lighter alternative to my heavy all-leather backpacking boots for when I'm a carrying a lighter load.
    These Hanwag's appear to fill that need.
    Very comfortable with reduced weight but good support.
    I haven't owned them long enough to evaluate longevity or waterproofness.

    Be sure to correctly decipher the sizing chart.

    I ordered the 42(US 10) and 43(US 10.5) Euro sizes just to be sure of the fit. I had measured my feet closely and fell somewhere around a US 10 and maybe a little more. The 43 felt good but had excessive heal slippage which would probably get worse the more I wore them. The 42 feels a little snug on the top outside of both feet and the toe box is not as roomy. So, they are running pretty close to true to size. They are loosening up bit by bit and I hope they loosen up some more before I get serious with them. Smartwool PhD socks with thick padding seem to help. I have been walking in them between 2 and 4 miles a a day for a week or two. I put green Superfeet in them and the jury is still out on whether they will stay in or not. The lacing system is very good and the tongue is a full length leather gusset of ample thickness. Anyhow, the overall quality is good and the weight is 1.5 Lb per pair lighter than the beloved 16 yr old Scarpas that came before them. As I get older I find it prudent to shed pounds wherever possible. Scarpa's abysmal customer service steered me away from them on this purchase. I know I won't get 16 yrs out of these but then again I didn't pay 300 bucks for them either. If I get anything over 5 I will be happy with them.

    These are high quality boots. I was very impressed. I wear a size 8.5 US and based on other reviews here, I ordered the UK size 8. They fit perfectly.

    Well made boot with good torsional rigidity. Comfortable, flexible, sturdy. Insole is lightweight and should be upgraded for long term comfort with heavy pack. Like it better than the Danner Rimtrail because of the sturdy soles. They were less expensive than other boots. 9.5 EU was about a 10.5 US in size.

    These boots seem to be very good. I ordered the same size as what would show on a commercial foot size measurement device and they seem to fit fine. I also bought some sole softec thin footbeds. The footbeds were cut to match the existing insoles.

    The Hanwag boots have good arch support and my foot can be laced tight to the sole. Also the laces go almost to the toe, allowing for some width adjustment.

    I gave away the Asolo boots to a rehab outfit, as they had poor traction on ice/snow. The traction for the Hanwag boot seems much better.

    Bought these boots last year, been on several hikes in the mountains, winter/summer.
    They fit great, on size and so lite and comfortable I was elated.
    After hiking all day my feet felt like I had just put them on, remarkable.
    No sore feet, or ankles, no chaffing, no cold feet, no hot feet, no stink, no brag just fact.
    Wow ! What a great boot, I recommend them to everyone I know, thank you Hanwag.
