Closeouts. Hanwag Tibet hiking boots are handcrafted in Germany for mountaineering and multi-day backpacking trips. The nubuck upper has a glove leather lining, a 360° protective rand and a crampon-compatible Vibram® outsole.

Quality materials throughout upon first inspection. The boot is VERY stiff so I expect a long and gradual break in time so i can't speak to how the materials will be once I am able to actively hike about in the boots. Fit seems true to size..

Nice boots. True to size, well made and good traction. I have only worn them around town but I can't wait to hit the trail. I agree with the other reviews that the boots can be a little warm. Great value!

Like the last reviewer, I think these boots are great. I ordered a half size larger looking for a little extra room in the toe box and am borderline D-to-E width. Since these boots have a full rand and are right at that width range, I require a little bit of break-in time before they fit comfortably. These boots are built like tanks and I imagine they will last a long time. However, unlike the last reviewer, I disagree about them being a summertime boot. These boots are lined with leather and they are not very breathable. So my feet get hot in them and I believe they are designed to be more of a winter boot. After all, they are designed with crampons in mind and Tibet and the Himalayas go hand-in-hand. Anyway, they are a nice stiff boot with excellent ankle support and should satisfy most mountaineering conditions. Short of breath-ability, the only other design flaw is the lace hook on the tongue. I think that particular design is much better with Lowa boots. Anyway, for the price, they are a wonderful bargain and overall, I am very happy with the STP purchase experience.

I grabbed pair of these Hanwag Tibet boots on sale and with a 35% coupon plus free shipping ! Could not find any information on this model (Tibet) but I have a pair of Hanwag Alaska GTX that are very well made and fit me comfortably.
As described, these boots have a textile padded tongue and glove leather lining with no insulation or waterproof rating so Buyers take note.
The Vibram sole has a very aggressive tread pattern and the heel welt will accommodate a "hybrid crampon" with a heel lever and toe strap. There is no toe welt to accommodate a true "step-in crampon".
I expect these boots will be very well suited to summer alpine hunting in New Zealand.
