Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yakety-Yak, don't walk back! Yak Leather! Black! I've been reading about so many entries of folks that diss Hanwag over some of the other brands like Zamberlan. And while I've like Lowas, I took a dive and while I'm usually 10.5 in Merrells, in this boot I'm an 11 if I wear medium thickness socks and 11.5 us if I'm going to go with the heavy socks. I've got feet that run hot and don't like the fabric interiors that love to eat foxtails and thorns, and don't like gortex and other membrane liners. This boot has such a soft full leather interior it's wonderful. The bearing rolling effect for the lower lace routing is marvelous. Whatever everyone else said about break-in?? Short hike the moment I wore them and so comfy, no hot spots, but I do have a narrower foot than many in the US. I absolutely love the lack of hard plastic/rubber bumper. I absolutely hammer boots, and will be getting a Bergler in 11.5 us equivalent because of the suede leather, for when I wear the heavy socks, but I am amazed at how well these Tashi's are taking my hammer footed style. The finish and material is very tough yet soft and pliable. It is the boot I have forever been looking for, I am sold on them, and hear they were the same brand the special forces used entering Iraq.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made to last for a lifetime of comfortable hiking These boots are surprisingly comfortable out of the box as the leather is much softer than I had expected. Break in is obviously still needed but is rather painless. The boots are very well made with beautiful stitching. I have had trouble with other boots' stiff ankle support rubbing my skin off in the past but this is not an issue here: The soft leather around the ankles provides good support without localized pressure pan points. Other brands' toe box like Asolo or Zamberland had my little toe feeling slightly pushed in but this is not the case with the Hanwag boots. They leave me with enough room to wiggle the toes without letting them move sideways. As a point of reference, circumference around my metatarsal bones is just about 8 inches and the boot size is 8.5. The lacing system gives great flexibility and control. The boot "rolls" nicely when walking, making for an easy and smooth stride. My feet remained warm and comfortable in temperatures around freezing point. I have not had the chance to test in really wet conditions yet. However, the way the tongue is stitched would likely let water accumulate at the junction between tongue and rest of the boot, eventually leading to seepage. Hanwag doesn't claim those boots to be waterproof so there is no real surprise there. I will use gaiters to mitigate and of course apply shoe wax regularly , especially in this potentially weak area. Also, note that the double stitching is not waxed so one should make sure to take care of that before heading out to rainy conditions. Yes, they are pricey but in this case, you really get what you pay for. Awesome quality and comfort, boots made to last a lifetime. Moosejaw discounts help in that regard of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable I am very satisfied with these boots. I ordered them for warmth and comfort, and they did not disappoint. They are the best boots I have ever had and I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot on the market. This is one of the highest quality, most comfortable and well crafted boot money can buy. The boot is very durable, with a vibrate sole, a double stitched welt, and the highest grade leather. Almost no break in period. Excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable boot I have ever worn! I was in need of a new boot since my old Lowas had worn out after a couple of years of use and was recommended these by a fellow hiker. After putting them on I didn’t want to take them off! The yak leather inside is so comfortable and your feet don’t get to hot or cold. I wore them around the shop for about an hour and decided to get them! Since then I have been using them for hiking and casual wear. The boots have good traction and clean easily when dirty. Overall I would get these again (hopefully not for another 10-15 years though). Definitely built to last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a Glove I had kept my eyes open for a good sale on Hanwag boots for several months on a few different websites and was delighted to hit the timing just right. I was fortunate to get the Tashi model (black) at nice discount. First let me say, they are spectacular. I don't knock the U.S., but boots of this quality are not manufactured here. When I put these on for the first time, my Danner Go-Devils, which I have lamented and struggled with for twenty years, went in the trash; they were literally my first steps in the Tashi's. They are beautiful, comfortable, and breathe so well. I live in the arid southwestern U.S., and wearing boots with Gore-tex in them is tantamount to hiker's suicide. First, it's pointless: there is no water down here, so why the Gore-tex? Warmth? As I write this, it is 105 outside my window. Second, Gore-tex is so hot I would just about rather attempt a 20 miler in flip-flops, or barefoot. (Note to boot manufactures around the world: the beautiful southwestern deserts of the U.S. -- which cry out for hiking -- are arid [waterless, incase you aren't sure] and immensely hot. Stop thinking you have a market down here for waterproof boots. I hiked the five major National Parks of Utah, and a state park outside Las Vegas [Red Rock] last summer and didn't even see a drop of water -- not counting the odd river [Colorado, Virgin, Green, San Juan, etc.] and fording is not required anywhere, unless you want to go up Zion's Narrows and they rent water shoes for that application. So do us all a favor: design, construct and market boots for us desert rats. There are more of us than you can imagine.) The leather lining inside the Tashi is as soft as deerskin garden gloves (Gore-tex be cursed!). Where have these things been all of my life, like when I wanted to throw myself off of Angel's Landing because of the torture my Danners were putting me through? The eyelets have bearings in the lower sets and lacing up is far simpler than any previous boots I've tried. I'm not sure what it is with the sole, but there is a gentle slope to them, I think, because my stride seems to be easier, almost like the trail ahead is perpetually downhill or something. And the Yak leather is so supple and elegant I think I could wear them to church and get genuine complements. If you are sitting on the fence and are not sure what to do about your inferior hiking boots, here is a little free advice: feel free to suffer until your hiking years are behind you, as mine are now close to being. The money you save by scrimping and suffering can go toward foot surgery or special-made orthotics as your years continue to advance. Take my word, it's a good time! Or you can buy a pair of Euro-made works of art that elevate the entire footwear industry and rejuvenate your drive to get outdoors and explore. The first time you wander down a shade-dappled trail without discomfort from an ill-fit or from excessive, Gore-tex induced, heat, you'll be more than glad, you will have taken out a new lease on life. And should it begin to rain on you out there, the Yak leather is said to be naturally waterproof, so stride on, man. Oh, and you can thank me when our paths converge out there somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. These are THE boots. I spent half of my adult life in the military. I have tried all of the major brands of boots. These are expensive and worth every dime. I wish I had all the money back that I've spent on boots, I would buy another pair of Hanwags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible boots, Incredible service! So happy wth this purchase. The most solid, best made boots I've owned. I have a pair of handmade Italian dress shoes and some boots of superior quality and these Hanwag boots are of the same ilk. True craftsmanship. Incredibly comfortable (note: sizing runs 1 size small) completely waterproof and warm as you need without sweat. Better than I could have hoped for. I also want to take the time to compliment Mossejaw on their incredible service. Ordering was a breeze and they hold true to their beat any online pricing. I had to return the first pair to replace with a size up and it couldn't have smoother. All done with no fuss and very quickly. Their online chat help service is excellent (not so much their telephone service). All in all one happy camper. Highly recommend Moosejaw.

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
The Horndl is a different design.  I've tried them on, but didn't commit to them at the time.  The Tashi and Bergler are basically the exact same boot (design), with the Tashi having yak leather and the Bergler having nubuck cow hide.  The Tashi and Bergler design is much different than the Horndl.  The Bergler is slightly stiffer as a result of the cow hide.  To be honest, I like the feel of the Bergler on my feet slightly better then the Tashi, simply due to the slightly more pronounced stiffness and support.  But, neither the Tashi or Bergler are what I would call overly supportive.  Think anything from day hiking to light backpacking, with a light to moderate pack, for either Tashi or Bergler.

Are these boots water proof?

Asked by: Mark
I walk these boots almost daily. I treat them with waterproofing every fall. They breathe well, and with wool socks, I have never felt uncomfortable after a walk in the moist or the snow, nor hot and sweaty after a summer hike. The yak leather is exceptionally resistant to water penetration, but I have not chosen to walk in them through too many bogs or streams, for which I have a old pair of gore-tex Vasques. I also have some Wellies and hip waders if I know I'm getting in deep.

I find it odd that Hanwag goes through the trouble to say the boots are double stitched vs either Goodyear or Norwegian welted which are industry standard for water tight welts. Is the Hanwag double stitching not a water tight welt?

Asked by: kast
Hiya Kast, thanks for your question! This design of this boot isn't based on meeting industry standards or technological advancements. The quality (and price) is due to its approach as a traditional Bavarian construction. The hand sewn double-stitching will be water tight through light to moderate hikes but if you are looking for something more technical, a boot with a fiberglass or rubber shank will offer more protection. Hope this helps!

What would the best crampons be for use with the Tashi?

Asked by: Mr 7
Thanks for the question! I actually have two options - depending on what type of conditions you will be in. If you are going to be on fairly level hiking trails covered with ice or packed snow, then I would consider MICROspikes. Specifically the Kahtoola MICROspikes. If you are going to be on higher angle ice, ice-covered rock, or mixed ice, then I would go with a mountaineering crampon - such as the Hillsound Trail Crampon PRO. That crampon can be used with any boot or shoe. I included links below for both of my suggestions. I hope this helps!

What size shoe was used to get the weight measurement? How stiff are these soles? Like a zamberlan vioz ?

Asked by: John
Great question! The weight is based on the shoe size 7-7.5. Also, I had a co-worker try both boots on and he states the sole was much less stiff on the Tashi than with the Vioz. I hope this helps!

Will these boots be a good candidate for a small to moderate at most stretch?

Asked by: Redster
Hiya Redster, thanks for your question! Yak leather is incredibly soft so I imagine this boot will stretch. Unfortunately, I can't say exactly how much it will stretch. Reviewers have said that it takes about 3 hikes to sufficiently break in the boot. Hope this helps a little!

Hanwag Men's Tashi Boot is the listed weight of 26.5 oz per boot or per pair?

Asked by: bill
Hey Bill, Thanks for the question. The Hanwag Men's Tashi Boot is about 26.5 oz per boot. That's just over one and a half lbs. I had to Google that conversion. I'm terrible at conversions. I think that's why my cookies never turn out...
