Closeouts. A stellar lightweight trekking boot, Hanwag's Saponi GTX has a waterproof breathable leather upper that's soft enough for a comfortable approach. Underneath, a stiff Vibram® Nemo outsole is solid enough for trips into the high alpine.

Wow! Never heard of Hamwag before this purchase but they exceeded my expectations. Great fit, true to size, nice insoles, quality materials / construction, and extremely comfortable right out of the box. I was looking for a light-weight boot with good fit and support. These fit the bill perfectly. They look like they will serve me well for years. Haven't had the opportunity to hike in them yet but I expect they will not disappoint.

I admit I have odd feet. A little on the narrow side with fairly high arch and some other odd features. So finding boots that fit and don't hurt is very difficult for me...in fact, I almost gave up. After failing with a few other boots, I finally ordered these. They don't hurt my ankles, are supportive enough, but have enough give to work with my feet. I have not gone on long hikes yet, but the short ones I have been on have been amazingly comfortable. I even forget to take them off after I get home!!! Seem to be very well constructed and aren't too heavy. My only complaint was the insole...essentially useless and very thin. I replaced it with a great high arch insole I got here on STP and they are now amazing! Take the risk on this little known brand (at least here in the U.S.) as they are great boots for a good price, especially when on a great STP sale.

Comfortable out of the box, added some Superfeet insoles and can wear these all day long. Hiking, yard work, fishing, construction work. Light weight, well built with good materials. Amazing value when purchased with STP discount. Can't say enough good things about these boots.

These are really nice boots. I was looking for something lightweight and with Gore-Tex. I didn't want a heavy soled typical hunting boot as I am an early season Archery hunter.
I tried on most other brands of hikers and these were far and away the best deal out there. They were comfortable from the get go with no breaking in time needed.
This is one really well built pair of boots.
You wont be disappointed.
