BERGLER – Authentic, double-stitched boot for mountain hiking


HANWAG was started in 1921 near Munich Germany. The company has now expanded to Croatia, Hungary, Romania and still produces the double stitched boot and mountain boots at its headquarters near Munich. So if you’re considering a quality European made boot for hiking or mountaineering take a look at these while you’re considering your standard Asolo, Lowa, Scarpa, and one of my personal favorites Zamberlan which I’ll talk about some other time.
