HANWAG is called after its founder Hans Wagner. At the company’s headquarters in Vierkirchen near Munich, it has been making top-quality alpine and trekking footwear since 1921. Right until the present day, we are pioneers of alpine footwear and make first-class shoes for outdoor enthusiasts of any type. Traditional craftsmanship, combined with sophisticated technical expertise, constant innovation and a passion for what we do are the cornerstones of our wide-ranging collection.
To put it in a nutshell: a perfect fit, robustness, durability and top-quality materials. All our products are made in Europe and some of our models in Germany even. This has been our approach since the company was founded over 90 years ago in Vierkirchen near Munich. Quality guaranteed.
HANWAG stands for innovation spawned by tradition. Since 1921 we’ve been combining top product quality with constant innovation. And in future these values will remain at the core of the HANWAG brand.
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 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.
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 are still made in Bavaria. Further exclusive production facilities are located in Croatia and Hungary. These relatively short distances add up to a better carbon footprint.
