Step out in comfort this year with the innovative new Alta boot from Hanwag, a lightweight trekking boot specifically developed to offer relief to outdoor enthusiasts suffering from bunions. Cobbled on a new, specially developed bunion last that provides extra space around the big toe joint, the Alta’s specialist fit is combined with Hanwag’s legendary quality for comfortable and fatigue-free walking.
Around 15 million people in the UK are reported to suffer from bunions, a condition that can cause certain shoes or boots to be painful and uncomfortable. During long walks or treks, ensuring that boots fit comfortably is crucial. Rather than having to buy a wider boot or size up, the Alta’s innovative design minimises pressure on the big toe joint yet fits comfortably and securely around the rest of the foot and ankle. Allowing users to enjoy outdoor pursuits in comfort, the Alta’s bunion specific design prevents rubbing that can lead to soreness or blisters.
Available in both male and female models, the Alta’s low weight and flexible sole make it ideal for long walks in the great outdoors. A Vibram® Ultra Grip sole with full-length cushioning and a heel shock absorber reduce fatigue while Deep Pull lacing provides a secure ankle fit for increased comfort. Hanwag’s Air Pulse System helps to channel hot air out of the boot, keeping feet cool while walking.
Constructed from durable waxed nubuck, the Alta also features a soft chrome-free leather lining that promises maximum comfort from the first wear. As well as being better for the environment, the chrome-free leather is also suitable for people with allergies or sensitive skin.
