HANWAG launched its first climbing shoes in the 1980s. Today the iconic design sees a revival. The ROTPUNKT pays homage to the pioneering spirit and bold colours of the period. Rock legends and free climbers, such as Sepp Gschwendtner and Kurt Albert inspired a whole era. The "rotpunkt" philosophy involved painting a red dot at the base of a route to show that it had been climbed free, without the use of technical aid. Back in the day it was an approach shoe, today it’s a retro-inspired mountain & leisure shoe with high-quality details. Both the HANWAG logo and the construction of the shoe are true to the original 1980s design. The new ROTPUNKT is limited to just 999 pairs – and each pair comes with an embossed serial number. This special edition comes in a custom retro shoebox with two additional pairs of laces and a number of ROTPUNKT extras.
