    High-quality boot that tough and versatile.

    Hanwag's been making shoes for almost a century, so it has had plenty of time to dial in the design of hiking boots. The Men's Tatra GTX Hiking Boot is one of its most versatile, all-around designs, offering the fit, durability, and quality this German company is known for. The velvety nubuck leather upper of the Tatra is backed with a Gore-Tex membrane that offers waterproof protection in nasty weather but doesn't make your foot overheat. But face it, many companies make boots with Gore-Tex; the difference here is craftsmanship that lasts through many seasons of use on the trail.

    • Gore-tex waterproof breathable membrane keeps moisture out while allowing the water vapor you generate as you hike to escape
    • Waxed nubuck upper is water-resistant, durable, and good-looking
    • Leather-lined, padded mid-height collar keeps out debris
    • Traditional lacing with Deep Pull instep clamp holds your foot in place for a comfortable, secure, and friction-free fit
    • Shock absorbing pad under the heel offers long-distance comfort, balancing out the slightly stiff, supportive sole
    • Rubber toe and heel caps protect your foot and the boot from trail hazards
    • Vibram AW sole with deep lugs gives you excellent traction on varied terrain
    • Item #HWG0002

    Good Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    They fit right and I did not have to break them in, they were already comfortable. I really like the boots, they are good in snow and mud. Not great on steep inclines, also not great with short socks (on a 6 mile hike, the inside seam made both my ankles bleed). I prefer my Zamberlan Vioz overall, which are lighter even more comfortable and work better on steep climbs. But these fit me well and with the right socks are really comfi. They definitely are solid.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: U.S. 11.5/EU 45
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    i originally bought 2 pairs of these (not from backcountry) in my normal size, wore them, loved them, but noticed they were 1/2 size longer than the rest of my european high grade hikers.

    it was no horrible issue, but i didn't really wish to look like i was wearing boats, especially since i wear these often casually because they look so good.

    even tho i'd spent a pretty penny on my 2 pairs of u.s.12/46 euros, i went for them again on backcountry with a slight discount coupon in u.s. 11.5/45 euro. both these boots, and asolos are almost a half size larger than most other high end hikers, and i also much get asolos at the lower size.

    but wow. both manufacturers made incredible boots. these hanwags have been worn in very varied terrain, from rocky, high slope, to mostly on concrete though cities on my urban photo treks. they perform super comfortably in all, as well as effectively.

    with these however, you get perhaps the best looking hiking boot around which you'll want to wear anywhere except perhaps to the opera (you'll want to but you significant other might object...unless they too have a pair).

    Really great boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I bought these boots for both light hiking and for wading through wet/snowy streets in the DC winter. They excel on both fronts.

    -Very comfortable. The insoles on these shoes are the best I've had in a boot.
    -Extremely good insulation - my feet are very toasty in these boots and I run very cold.
    -Zero water - waterproofing was put through some severe tests this winter with a 2'/60cm snow and melt event. No water after multiple dunks.
    -Super styling for a boot. I got the dark gray before they discontinued it and they don't even look like boots in profile.
    -Wearing in very well. Signs of wear are minimal and I've really been wearing them this winter. Durability seems very high.
    -Not made in China. I like supporting living-wage producers where I can.

    -They squeak. It's a bit of a design defect. The leather tongue makes contact with the leather ring around the top inside part of the boot. A little castor oil fixed it but it reoccurs sometimes.
    -The sole can be a bit slippery when it's wet but in what shoe is that not the case?

    Really great boot


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12 u.s./46 euro
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    i am NOT a bigtime hiker, but rather use them functionally on photography treks either on concrete in urban areas, or out in the desert/hills depending on where i'm shooting. also, just a fan of cool quality hiking boots.

    that said, i can't speak to hardcore durability issues, and have heard of some outsole separation from the bottom sole cushioning element. i have not used enough to have anything like that happen, and to those it's happened to, it appears like it takes over a year of heavy hiking.

    for me, these were super comfortable right out of the box, they feel great. however, that is not to say they weren't stiff to the extent all new, good, hiking boots are. took a pair (i got 2 colors of the same boot) to the desert to walk around palm springs and to hike out into the desert terrain filming some stuff. these were super comfortable, not at all hot in the 90 degree heat, and did break in a bit tho i didn't use them anywhere past 5 miles of use.

    looks and construction of these are the best, look great with jeans just bopping about, and feel just as good. only issue i can't speak to is durability over long periods of time and super heavy use...that said, these are top from my use of them.

    Excellent Boots

    I have worn most Merrell, Danner, and Vasque boots, but decided to try this pair. I am genuinely impressed. These boots are comfortable and provide excellent support. I have only owned them a few months but they are holding up extremely well so far.

    I prefer this pair to any Vasque or Merrell that I own. The size seems to run true for me and the fit of my foot is excellent.

    Fantastic boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I estimate I've put around 60 miles in these boots, of that about 25 miles in rain.

    I really, really like them. I also have a pair of Lowa Renegade's but I wanted a stiffer boot for carrying more load. These certainly are a lot stiffer than the Renegade's but in backpacking boot terms they are still perhaps considered to be fairly flexible.

    So far they have kept my feet completely dry, even during an 8 hour wet hike, most of it in rain.

    Traction is really good.

    I do have to tighten them properly or I will have some slippage in the heel, but in no ways too tight. So far I have no developed any blisters. I've carried loads up to 37 pounds so far in these boots and they've held up fine.

    I use a custom insole (SOLE I think the brand is).

    For me they did need a little bit of break-in. I probably around 10 miles on easy walks around the neighborhood before I took them on a hike.

    It's a good looking boot too. I don't think the pictures do them justice.

    Hanwag makes these in both leather-lined and Gore-Tex versions. I have the Gore-Tex model. They do get, predictably, get warm in, eh, warm weather. I've tried them multiple times in 5 hours hikes around 80 degrees. They've been warm but not uncomfortably hot.

    You may not have heard of Hanwag. It's a German brand with a long boot making history. Together with Lowa (also German), these are some of the best made boots you can buy. Both manufacture their boots in Europe, some of the models are made in Germany. As such, the price is thereafter, but you do get what you pay for.

    How would these boots hold up to a complete immersion? Say crossing streams or getting caught in a downpour. Would one be able to "walk them dry," with a change of socks?

    Hey Duke,

    The majority of this shoe is made out of Goretex which is an incredibly waterproof material. If your entire foot is submerged in water (passed the top of the boot) you will get water that seeps in around your ankle and at that point, it's going to depend how long your foot is submerged to be able to say if they can be dried out with walking and a change of socks. If you're crossing through streams without getting your ankle in water, you'll be 100% dry and won't even need to change your socks!

    Let me know if I can help you get the right size -- goretex shoes are a little tricky if you don't have some guidance!

    Hey, normally we do convert all of our UK sizes to US sizing, but for whatever reason we missed this brand and currently all Hanwag shoes are listed in UK sizes. I have have contacted content to try and get that indicated on the site.
