Yackety Yak, Don't talk back to a man who is wearing yak leather bootsHow cool is that? Feet that yak. These boots are beautiful, lovely to touch and hold. The inside is soft, soft chemical free leather. The inside of these boots is reason enough to have a pair. But the outside is what gets you up the trail. Tough as a Tibetan beast. They broke in easily, just a couple of days. The handcrafted detail is spectacular. The forefoot lacing system is ball bearing based and tightens up with a smooth tug. Next, the locking deep pull clamps lock the heel in place. The upper hooks can be tied looser for walking, or tighter for descending to keep out the scree.,,,,Yeah, they are pricey, but with the double stitched base, they can be resoled for as long as you live. I look for every opportunity to put these boots on and get outside. Got yak? I do.

Fantastic Boots!Well, I bought my new Tashi boots from here at Moosejaw about 1.5 months ago. I just started wearing them and breaking them in (if you really want to call it that). In short, they’re frickin’ incredible! They’re my third pair of Hanwags. I’ve owned the Grunten and the Triglav GTX, also.
The Tashi is a really awesome boot. What Hanwag says about the yak leather is true, too. Very soft and supple, yet robust. I’ve owned MANY double-stitched boot models over the decades, and I venture to say that the Tashi will likely be my favorite so far (although the Grunten is super nice as well).
The Tashi fits like a glove; mainly due to the super nice, high quality leather lining. They’re a lighter duty boot though. As another reviewer mentioned, they’re lighter and suppler than they look. I plan to use mine exclusively for everyday wear (i.e., around town and to/from work, etc.). Somewhere down the road I may use them for actual trail work, but right now I just don’t want to. They’re way too nice and pretty to get dirty and scruffy so soon, if ever.
Fit appears to be true to size. The width is great for a medium-width foot, and the toe boxes are nice and roomy enough. The heels and insteps fit nice and snug, also. I treated mine with Collonil waterproofing spray, and I tossed the original insoles and added Orthaheel by Vionic Active Orthotic insoles instead. Let me tell you… The Vionic insoles elevate the Tashi into a whole other class of “Heavenly-feel.”
Helluva lotta money to throw down, I know. But, in my opinion, worth EVERY penny! I’m definitely in love with mine…
Other double-stitched boots I’ve owned:
Fabiano Rio, Alico Tahoe, Merrell Wilderness, Hanwag Grunten, Hanwag Triglav GTX
If you’re serious about going the classic, traditional, old-world, double-stitched route, then do yourself a huge favor and opt for entirely leather lining, too.
Stay far away from Merrell Wilderness. Really nice boots, but so inferior in so many ways. Worst of which is the nightmare-ish stiffness, and subsequent break-in time.
Alico is nice, but inferior to the big dawgs, such as Hanwag and Zamberlan.
The Fabiano Rio was a super nice boot, but they’re no longer made or in business. They were way to stiff and overkill anyway.
For a dedicated trail boot, I’m currently thinking of trying the Zamberlan Latemar to go along with my new Tashi, for a dual, classic, old-world-style, two-boot combo to handle all of my current life-related needs (i.e., in-town and in-mountains).

Best, most well made boot for the moneyI've always had LOWA boots in the past but, these are even nicer!
Very comfortable leather lining with great insoles included.
They are lighter weight than I expected and the soles have a natural rocker which makes for nice stride. Another reason I purchased these are that they are the best quality Yak leather!

Great bootNeeds minimal break in due to amazingly soft leather interior. Built well for rough trails, long hikes, high altitudes. Slightly heavier than more high tech alternatives. Leather outer needs a little attention with conditioner/wax after long or wet hikes.

Are these boots water proof?
Asked by: Mark
Thanks for reaching out to us! While the Hanwag Tashi Boot is made of Tibetan yak leather that's 2.2 mm to 2.6 mm thick, they are not waterproof and need to be treated. I hope this helped you out!

Are there any differences between the Tashi, Bergler and Horndl boots by Hanwag besides the leathers and the more aggressive Dolomit heel on the Horndl?
Asked by: jerod
Thanks for the question. These are all very similar shoes but they differ in a few places. The Tashi and Bergler have the same outsole but the Tashi is made of Tibetan Yak leather which is extremely thick and hydrophobic. The Bergler and the Horndl are both very similar and are made out of the same nubuck leather but the Horndl has a Dolomit sole which as you said is more aggressive. Besides these differences these are pretty much the same shoe.
