Men's Hanwag Grunten Hiking Boots
The Hanwag Grunten is built for those who appreciate traditional craftmanship and attention to detail with a hiking or trekking boot. The Grunten is fully-leather lined, and has a true double-stitch construction and Vibram outsole for a stable and robust boot. It has a durable full-grain leather upper, with a soft and cushioned cuff.
Hanwag's process for double-stitch construction is the same they've used for 90 years, at their factory near Munich, Germany.
What characterizes the genuine double-stitch technique is two rows of stitching through the upper — the first connecting the upper to the rib of the insole (a special lip on the insole specifically for double-stitching), and the second connecting the upper to the midsole. The benefit of using this traditional technique is that it is much stronger than gluing, and makes the boot extremely robust, stable, and possible to re-sole.
