For its 25th anniversary, which also coincides with the company’s 100-year anniversary, Hanwag is celebrating the Alaska GTX with a limited-edition special model – the ‘Alaska 100’. Made from fine, robust, full-grain leather in homage to the traditional smooth leather uppers of the original mountain boot. The slightly higher scree-protection rubber rand with lasered logo protects the leather against cuts and scratches, while the embossed logo on the leather upper sets this special-edition anniversary model clearly apart. For a secure and reliable fit, even during the most extreme bushwhacking, the robust and durable lacing hooks are made in sturdy die-cast metal. Inside the boot, the polyurethane midsole is topped by a 0.2 mm TPU foil layer. This makes the sole unit not just lighter and more comfortable, but uncomplicated to look after and more resistant to hydrolysis. Inside, the footbed is made of chrome-free tanned leather. And the new, lighter Vibram® Fuoraska outsole with proven Hanwag PrismBase technology ensures that the Alaska 100 will see trekkers through thick and thin, in all conditions.
