Very high quality construction

HanWag is in the same family who own LOWA. HanWag constructed this shoe with strong leather, buttery calf skin inside, and I mean throughout inside. This stuff is amazing and if you were to see it you'd enter into the world of high quality hand crafted shoes rarely found anymore. When I look for shoes, I am extremely frustrated that I can't find such a product as these. Most are made in China and I will not buy shoes or boots from China. I buy boots from Italy, and shoes from Europe if possible. When I stumbled onto this deal on Sierra, I did not hesitate. They run a tad long so Sierra helped me swap for the correct size right away. They are very supportive for bigger guys who like to walk and hike. The soles are made by Vibram. The tongues are gusseted. The heels do not slip at all, even when tied loose. Very comfortable, yet tough. The style works just about anywhere. Reminds me of the fine shoes I have from Havana Joe in Spain, or Zamberlan shoes from Italy.
