Excellent quality Scandinavian boots!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by goldengirlstudio from Virginia on Thursday, May 4, 2017
I confess, I have always bought cheap hiking boots in my 25+ years of hiking. I've gone through several pairs of canvas/suede boots over the years, and while they've been okay, these Hanwag boots are the real deal. You can tell the difference in quality the minute you pull them out of the box. Now, they are a tad heavier than your "light hiker" types of boots, but not so much that you feel weighted down. The leather upper is firm yet flexible, with a nice nubuck finish, and the sole is shock absorbent.

One thing that takes some getting used to is the "one-sided" tongue...in other words, it only opens on one side, like a flap, instead of the typical tongue that is open on both sides. The good thing about that is it offers extra support across the foot, and it also keeps your feet much drier. These boots are true to size, and I have a bit of a wide foot -- these don't pinch! The arch support is also top notch. You could literally walk for miles in these things, and I plan to do so.
