Hanwag - Escalator

27-03-2016 -

Have you ever heard of approach shoes? If not, this is the best occasion for you, since we are about to introduce one of these kinds. Firtsly,  we are very happy to say that it is another Hanwag product. This esteemed company released its first approach shoes with Cocona® lining.

Let me write a few sentences about this kind of shoes. These beauties are on half way between the regular hiking boots and the rock climbing shoes. They have lovely characteristics that combine both the hiking boots' and rock climbing shoes' best attributes. Like all climbing shoes, the approach shoes also have a rigid rubber sole that helps the user on steeper terrain. And before I forget to tell, all the approach shoes are low cut shoes, that provides more freedom to your feet. And most of them do not have serious insulation in the sole, so the hiker can walk even on hot surfaces for longer periods.

The latest addition to Hanwag’s approach product line walks up the crag either with Cocona® or GORE-TEX® lining. It’s Hanwag’s first light low-cut climber that is also available without GORE-TEX®. Cocona® is a performance fabric made of polyester fibres with active carbon particles from coconut shells permanently anchored in the polymer. The lining is worth looking at (and smelling): Cocona® is fast drying and provides effective cooling as well as natural odour control. Good in summer, good for cragging, and of course good looking! In summer 2012 Hanwag cobbles his first approach shoe with Cocona® lining, or alternatively in a waterproof and breathable version with GORE-TEX® membrane (EscalatorGTX®: in Pistacchio and Rubin colours).

Cocona® contains microscopically small carbon particles from coconut shells. These tiny little particles have big impact: the lining is fast drying, and has an

outstanding cooling effect and reduces unpleasant foot odour. The GORE-TEX® version is designed for poor weather. That means it is durably waterproof and highly breathable. Both Escalator versions perform greatly in approaching. The low-cut shoe is lightweight (for cragging and in the backpack during alpine climbs), flexible and comes with a tough Vibram® Cross sole-unit featuring a non-profile climbing zone under the toes for high friction and surefootedness. These shoes have cemented construction. Thus, they last long, provide excellent edge stability and are easy to resole. Real handcraft, no hocus-pocus!
