Then let us introduce to you the HANWAG Makra Trek GTX. The same as all models in our Makra family, it’s a dedicated mountain boot. The ‘Trek’ addition in its name is important though. That’s because this mountain boot is made to take you up mountains and also go that extra distance.

Question: How do you make a boot that is lightweight, sturdy and comfortable all at the same time? These characteristics all counteract one another.
Answer: Andreas Settele, Head of Research and Development at HANWAG says: “By using only the very best materials and clever construction techniques.” For example, by working together with our partner Vibram, we created an outsole that weighs up to 32 per cent less, without making any sacrifices on grip and braking performance.”
There’s more about the technical features of this boot below. We’d like to present four important technical aspects of our long-distance mountain champion:
THE SAME AS ALL OUR HANWAG MODELS, THE MAKRA FAMILY is 100% MADE IN EUROPE
There are many different types of challenges, but they all require one thing in particular – the right companion.
Our Makra product family consists of four models. They are all made especially for specific areas of use in alpine terrain.
HANWAG Makra Trek GTX – for mountain tours and hut-to-hut trips
HANWAG Makra Pro GTX – for demanding mountain tours and easier high-alpine mountaineering
HANWAG Makra Pro Low GTX – for approaches in demanding, technical terrain
HANWAG Makra Light – for easier climbing and via ferratas
And what do they all have in common? Their unique fit. The tried-and tested ‘Makra fit’ literally wraps around your foot. Giving you the right amount of precision and power transfer for the mountains with every step.
