Mens double-stitched traditional Yak leather mountain boot.
Yak leather uppers and a traditional, handcrafted construction: The robust, double-stitched Tashi by Hanwag is a genuine mountain boot suitable for demanding trips.
Double-Stitched describes a traditional construction requiring very skilled labour. The upper and the sole unit of the Tashi by Hanwag are stitched together. The sole is made by Vibram. Named after the Italian “Vitale Bramani”, Vibram is probably the world’s best known manufacturer of high-end sole units. Thats why it’s suitable for challenging hikes in lower mountain ranges and easier treks, including off-trail use and ascents. Hanwag only uses robust, hydrophobic Tibetan Yak leather that is 2.2 to 2.6 millimeters thick. Sourced exclusively from the Lhasa Leather Factory in Tibet, the leather is chrome free tanned and also suitable for people who are allergic to ordinary leather.
Fewer seams reduce the risk of rubbing and pressure points. Hanwag uses a special technique, which makes it possible to reduce the number of seams. It might sound simple, but it involves very complex craftsmanship.
Thanks to their double stitched construction the Tashi by Hanwag can be resoled as many times as required.
