I've been climbing and backpacking in leather boots with exposed threads since the mid 1970's... I'm brutal on boots. I've slowly over years had stitching become abraded and lost a row or two in a small area, but that never affected the boots performance.

I'm honestly having a tough time trying to visualize anyone harder on boots than me... I'm one to avoid unnecessary stitching on a boot, but in general, looking over the Hanwag, I'd say they've been fairly restrained with excessive stitching (unlike what one sees on some Meindel models).

Just my perspective...

Great!!

I have a question on these boots? On my early mulie hunts in sept we encounter temps from 75* to 20*. Snow usually melts buy noon. I have gators if need be. 100plus pds on the trip out. Is this the one I want?

I've wondered about the abrasive toughness of a boot like this. I know leather helps support the ankles.. But I want to go lighter.

Those boots have a ton of stitching imo. The one pair of meindls I've owned had stitching up the back and around the tongue. None all over the sides like that.

That is why I asked if they had a warranty. So in case they do fall apart then you are not out 200 plus dollars.

I bought a new pair of boots this year and got a lifetime warranty.

I think the leather is fine I would just worry about the stitches.

I've got a set of Trappers with the Lathrop footbed. I had been using Asolos for my BP hunting and my feet were screaming at the 3-4 mile mark due to issues internally. The Lathrop system helped considerably and I can hunt/hike in comfort far longer.

I really need to see a local podiatrist to get my problems fixed completely, but in the interim the Lathrops have been a huge improvement.

Great guys, Great boots, Great service.
