Hanwag Yukon notable features
The Hanwag Yukon is a category C gear which makes it a boot intended specifically for trekkers who haul loaded backpacks. Its upper is engineered with minimal seams, giving it a streamlined profile. It comes built with a flex zone at the heel to enhance the backpacker’s stride.
Giving users protection and a sense of security out in the wild is the Yukon’s sole unit. It consists of a heavy-duty midsole with PU shock absorber and a resolable Vibram outsole.
Hanwag engineers crafted this trekking footwear with the Air-Pulse System. This company-owned technology, as suggested by its name, expels heat out of the boot for an airy in-shoe experience.
Size and fit
A high-cut, fairly true-to-size backpacking boot for men and women is the Hanwag Yukon. It is offered in a range of half and whole sizes. The men’s gear comes in widths D – standard and 2E – wide. The women’s version, on the other hand, may only be had in B – standard width. Wearers can personalize its fit via the footwear’s lace-up closure.
This leather hiker is capable of adhering to tricky outdoor surfaces thanks to the Vibram Foura outsole. The lugs it comes built with are designed to last and provide sufficient multi-directional grip. It also has a heel brake, granting backpackers extra security and control on descents.
A stout midsole with a shock absorber made of polyurethane (PU) is what promises cushioning and terrain balance in this Hanwag trekking boot. It is engineered with stabilizing elements to give those who excessively pronate or supinate a much more comfortable ride. It also comes topped with a cushy footbed for added underfoot comfort.
Constituting virtually the entirety of the Yukon’s high-top upper is nubuck leather. Its liner is also made of leather, albeit of a different sort. Its lower region has a protective rand made of heavy-duty rubber. Its soft collar has perforations for extra breathability.
The boot’s eyelets, which are a combination of closed loops and open hooks, are metallic. Most of the ones found along the instep are furnished with ball bearings to make lace adjustments smoother. A sturdy synthetic lace crisscrosses through these combination eyelets.
