        WHAT’S A LAST?

        In the workshop, each boot or shoe is given its own, specific form – this is defined by the last. A last is a model rather like an artificial foot. It’s made either from a meticulously designed piece of wood or plastic and the footwear is fashioned around it. The last used should correspond to the shape of your foot, otherwise your footwear will never fit properly, no matter how many uncomfortable kilometres you hike trying to break it in.

        OUR SPECIAL LASTS

        No two feet are the same. This is why not every last and shoe shape will fit every hiker or mountaineer. To ensure a better, more individual fit, we started developing our own special lasts many years back. If you always have problems finding the right footwear, if your boots have always been “too wide”, “too narrow” or only offer “poor grip”, then you need our Hanwag special lasts.

        NARROW

        Our Narrow Last is designed for all male and female hikers and mountaineers who find that normal footwear is usually too wide. It offers better support and grip for narrower feet in mountain terrain and more precision and security on rock.

        BUNION

        Many people – often women, but also boulderers and sport climbers – suffer from bunions (hallux valgus) and stiffness of the big toe joint. Our special Bunion Last provides additional room around the big toe joint.

        STRAIGHT FIT

        Our StraightFit Last offers an innovative, generous toe box that allows the big toe to assume a straight position and provides more room for the toes. This particularly benefits people with a wider forefoot and generally offers enhanced overall comfort and insulation for all feet.

        ALPINE WIDE

        Due to the technical requirements, our ALPINE models have a slightly narrower shape. However, our AlpineWide Last gives a wider forefoot area. By alleviating pressure in the toe box, there is less risk of frostbite and it’s possible to wear thicker socks.
