The classic trekking boot – made for multi-day trips and trekking tours. This updated version of the HANWAG Nazcat has a long-lasting and easy-care nubuck leather upper with a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX membrane.
Less is often more, and this applies to long-distance hiking too. After all, hikers have to carry everything they need with them on their back. Kilometre by kilometre, you learn to value what’s important and to do without the rest. This is exactly the spirit embodied by the new HANWAG Nazcat II GTX. It’s got everything that a good trekking boot needs for a multi-day or multi-week trek. Nothing more, and nothing less.
This classic, timeless boot is perfect for long-distance hikes. Its one-piece leather upper in high-quality, robust nubuck has fewer seams, which makes it particularly resistant to dirt and easy to care for. This is ideal on longer trips. This new, updated version of the Nazcat II GTX has a softer ankle cuff and instep made of robust fabric. For weather protection, there is a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX membrane. In diverse, rugged terrain, the Vibram Fuoraska sole with its 6.5 mm tread depth and marked heel delivers excellent grip and traction. For even more room at the forefoot and ball of the foot, the Nazcat II GTX also comes in a Wide version.
