HANWAG BANKS

Pure Wanderlust

For the new edition of our classic Hanwag Banks boot, we at Hanwag have focused on further improving its lightweight design and ensuring the required sure-footedness in combination with ankle protection over varied terrain, while continuing to offer maximum comfort especially over longer distances.

To make this possible, we have given the forefoot slightly more room. The toes and ball of the foot have excellent power transfer to the sole, but still enjoy good freedom of movement and space. With its five different lasts for five different fits – Normal, Narrow and Straight Fit Extra for women, Normal and Straight Fit Extra for Men – the Banks covers a wide spectrum of foot shapes.

New sole construction for softer cushioning and improved traction. The circa 1.5 mm thicker polyurethane foam wedge in the midsole gives a smoother roll-off, noticeably better shock absorbency and longer lasting comfort. Its lace hooks are made from robust cast metal. The new Banks is made from 100% finest LWG (Leather Working Group) Gold-rated nubuck leather – a certification that guarantees not just particularly high quality but also sustainable, eco-friendly manufacturing. Inside stitch-and-turn seams. With leather or GORE-TEX lining available. In addition, the new Endurance Pro outsole by Vibram uses a tried-and-tested rubber compound with a tread design for moderately difficult terrain. The wide forefoot and heel strike areas ensure comfortable hiking and maximum stability. Slightly larger forefoot for enhanced comfort. The toes have more room for greater comfort on longer hikes and treks. The tried-and-tested heel counter encloses the back of the foot for a secure fit and optimum control. Straight-fit extra version available with a very wide forefoot area.

When it comes to the sole, we have made two significant improvements

The midsole now contains soft polyurethane (PU) for improved shock absorbency, enhanced roll-off and “softer” walking comfort.

In addition, the new Vibram outsole (Endurance Pro) is made of a tried-and-tested rubber compound, but has improved tread. The contact surfaces at the forefoot and heel are slightly larger to provide maximum stability.

HANWAG BANKS The Banks is intended to be used on demanding hikes in terrain ranging from lower mountain ranges to the foothills of the Alps and easier hut-to-hut trips with a lightweight pack.

StraightFit Extra

Our StraightFit Trek Extra Last combines the generous, wide toe box of our StraightFit Last that allows the big toe to assume a straight position with additional room at the forefoot and the ball of the foot area from our Wide Last. As such, it provides a good fit for people with a wider forefoot – or who want more space for their big toe.
