Hanwag Tatra GTX 2009

The Hanwag Tatra GTX has a Gore-Tex waterproof lining; leather upper that is relatively stitch-free; rubber toe reinforcement; very aggressive outsole lugs; rubber rand on instep; good supportive upper; good cushioning. But it’s very heavy at 1864g (pair, size 11).

 

Verdict: The Hanwag Tatra GTX offers excellent performance, but the weight and price tag are drawbacks even though this is superb for mountain and hill-walking.
