A classic in hiking shoes: the Hanwag Banks II Lady GTX!
This lightweight and flexible hiking shoe impresses with a perfect balance of stability and durability on one hand as well as lightness and comfort on the other. This is made possible by a cushioned, but still flexible, Vibram sole in combination with the robust upper fabric, which is a mixture of synthetic and natural materials.
The shoe is suited to classic day touring in uplands on moderately surfaced paths. It offers a good foothold on wet ground and supports the ankles with a mid-length shaft, giving protection when travelling on steep terrain.
Because of the moderate cushioning the shoe is not intended for long treks with heavy backpacks. But it is perfect with a daypack or rucksack for a weekend trip.
Equipped with a durable waterproof membrane, the Banks II GTX can also be combined with warm socks to function as a winter boot.
The Hanwag Banks II Lady GTX is just as suited for classic hiking is it is for walking the dog on wet meadows.
Note: Hanwag boots are resoleable.
