Who should buy the Hanwag Grunten
The Hanwag Grunten is a remarkable Hanwag product, and owning one gives hikers one more excuse to stay outdoors just a little bit longer. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking boot that grants extra support and protection on trails and cityscapes alike.
- Prefer a hiking boot that is capable of providing adequate performance on both extended hikes and light trekking adventures.
- Prefer a hiking boot that provides sufficient surface traction on the trail.
Excellent surface grip and slip resistance
Thanks to Grunten’s Vibram Guffert rubber outsole, wearers can travel across a variety of outdoor surfaces with enough grip and slip resistance. It bites into loose soil for an even more secure footing with its multi-directional lugs. It also comes built with a marked heel to yield extra stopping power during downhill maneuvers.
Cushioning and stability over uneven terrain are courtesy of the hiker’s ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) midsole. The heavy underfoot impact is mitigated by a shock-absorbing unit at its heel. It is paired with a removable contoured footbed for added support and extra comfort underfoot.
Soft leather with moisture management
The Grunten is a buffed full-grain leather hiking boot with a mid-top design. For added comfort, Hanwag designers gave it a leather lining with moisture management. For a rub-free in-shoe feel, on the other hand, the engineers gave the boot a tongue made of soft leather.
Its lockdown system features metallic eyelets which are comprised of open hooks and closed loops. A lace made up of synthetic cords is set through them.
