HANWAG is named after its founder Hans Wagner. The company is headquartered in Vierkirchen, near Munich, where it has been making top-quality alpine and trekking footwear since 1921. For over 90 years, we have been pioneers of alpine footwear and producing first-class boots and shoes for outdoor enthusiasts of all types. Traditional craftsmanship, combined with sophisticated technical expertise, constant innovation, and a passion for what we do are the cornerstones of our wide-ranging collection.

HANWAG is defined by: Fit, function, quality and craftsmanship
A perfect fit is pivotal to good footwear.
This has been HANWAG’s goal since founding the company in 1921. And we believe that regular feedback from customers and design awards from the industry demonstrate that we're getting it right.
The HANWAG fit is a virtually a legend in itself. Over nine decades of experience, superb craftsmanship, the best materials and sophisticated production techniques are the reasons why. The goal is to deliver function-rich, top-quality footwear.
MADE IN EUROPE
We make almost all our footwear in Europe and hardly use any components that travel long distances. Around 30 percent of our range of double-stitched and alpine boots is still made at our headquarters in Vierkirchen near Munich. Further exclusive production facilities are located in Croatia, Hungary and Rumania. These relatively short distances add up to a better carbon footprint.
