Hanwag Tatra Lady GTX

A great-looking boot in a very distinctive colour. Lots of padding means they’ll be comfortable from the box, and the lacing system makes it easy to get a really secure fit. They’re definitely worth trying if you’ve got narrow feet. The ankle cuff is high and very supportive and the stiff midsole provides excellent protection and shock absorption on tough terrain. A good tread pattern means they grip well, especially on rock. Stayed looking good throughout the test.
