Tibetan high altitude leather possesses unique characteristics: thicker skins whilst robust are surprisingly supple. Once in Germany, the Yak leather is made water repellent.
YAKS HAVE THICK SKINS
Yaks are hardy animals influenced by their 4000 meter high barren landscape. One can see this in the leather: it has a naturally raw texture, which is not so uniform as that of the Alpine cattle usually used by Hanwag. This individual texture gives each boot a unique character, which clearly and proudly points to place of origin.
Robust Yak leather exterior, soft leather lining made of 100 % chromeless tanned leather, and a comfortable leather cuff.
Shock absorbing and great cushioning.
Named after Italian "Vittorio Bramani", probably the best-known manufacturer of high-end sole units. Today, there are a number of suppliers that provide similar or equally high quality soles.
