Size and fit

This handcrafted hiker from Hanwag is available for men in whole and half sizes. It comes in standard width. It features the Easy Roller smooth ball bearing lacing system that grants a personalized fit to the wearer. The boot reasonably runs true to size.


The Hanwag Bergler’s ability to grip on most types of terrain comes from its Vibram Tessin outsole. It’s made of a sturdy EVA rubber material. Its surface features cross-shaped lugs in the middle and block-like lugs on the sides for traction and stability, respectively. The raised heel creates a braking power that aids during descents.

The Bergler from Hanwag uses a double-stitch construction to attach the sole to its upper. This design allows the gear to be resoled at an additional price.


This backpacking boot is equipped with a midsole component that’s built to promote comfort. It also has a shock absorber placed at the heel. The sole uses a wedge design to improve stability. 


The Hanwag Bergler features an upper made of nubuck leather. This material makes the boot resistant to abrasive elements. The boot’s leather lining creates a comfortable in-shoe environment. Also, the lining is free from chromium to prevent skin allergies.

This backpacking boot features an Easy Roller closure system that helps speed up the lacing process. It consists of a set of D rings, smooth ball bearings and open hooks.

A soft leather tongue prevents friction and promotes comfort. A flex zone is incorporated into the upper to help the user’s ankle to move freely without compromising support.
