Category Guide

The first step towards finding the right pair of boots or shoes is to understand the different types and variations that are available. Hanwag footwear is divided into A, B, C and D categories. Look for these symbols under the product features tab to guide you through the selection process.

Hanwag footwear is also organized according to the following areas of activity: Trail & Travel, Trek Light, Trek, Rock and Alpin. This takes into account not only sole stiffness, but also a range of other factors including flexibility at the ankle (lateral and longitudinal), heel pitch (the difference in height between the last at the heel and the ball of the foot), toe spring (the height of the last at the center of the toe where it curves up from the ground), the last itself and the materials used. Experiences and fitness are also important factors: some people prefer sturdy, lightweight shoes, while others are better off in mountain boots.
