OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

PROJECT NEXT STEP: Hanwag has strategically decided to become an ecologically and socially responsible, sustainable company. NEXT STEP describes the way to reach this target.

In addition to existing assets (very long durability, production in Europe and short transport distances), Hanwag has made major improvements on the product:
– NEW CompoSole, the first fully bio-degradable sole-unit for trekking footwear
– Bio-leather (from cows that lived on organic farms; with proof of origin)
– Terracare® Zero – CO2-neutrally produced leather
– Chrome-free, anti-allergic leather lining

WAXENSTEIN BIO is one of five models in Hanwag’s Bio-Collection.
