@Massdrop Is there any sizing information on these. Whether they fit true to size, size up/down?
What were the price for these on the last drop?
Thought I would update on this after a year. I waited almost 2 months for the boots. The boots themselves have amazing quality however I do feel that they are quite bulky and the toe box is really narrow. A bit narrower than the Alaska GTX. If I know I'd have ordered up half a size. The ones I have make my toes go numb if I walk more than 2 miles in them. So currently I have a $300 nice looking pair of yak leather boots just sitting in my closet collecting dust.

The lace doesn't run that far down. The area that was too narrow was around my toes. The lace only help around the ball of my feet. Also in this particular model, the soles are layered leather so they are stiffer than rubber soles in typical Hanwag boots so they don't flex much when I walked. I tried to break them in but I couldn't because my toes would go numb after 2-3 miles. I recently bought the Zamberlan Tofane and those boots are amazing. Fit like gloves for wide toe box feet like mine and very comfortable to walk in. Almost no break in time at all.

What size is buy them :)
This could have been a nice drop. BUT; Sizing Colour Options SIZING
NOPE.

Oh, and.....Massdrop- What happened to "we're going to try to include The Ladies more" ? These are barely inlusive of The Men, certainly not going to size many of The Ladies.
SIZING!
No one should spend $250 on a boot with cement construction.

It is double stitched And can be completely resoled, the cemented is just the Vibram outer sole. Almost all stiched hiking boots, including danner, zamberlan and merrell are built like this.

Agree with @RosaLuxemburg here. Both the Hanwag Tashi and Grunten are double stitched construction and can be resoled. These are almost up there with Zamberlans.
LOL @ 8.5... I need 11 please... or it's irrevelvant for me. And also how does it handle cold? as in -5 to -10 celcius. I remember that leather boots transfers it alot and my feet were damn freezing while not even in the snow. But I don't know about Yak leather, so I'm asking.
Black only? I though they came in black AND brown last time?
Why not order on prime and try them on. Then ship them back and order here.

Funny you should mention that, today I heard LL Bean has discontinued it's famous Life-Time Guarantee due to an avalanche of abuse in recent years.

Yep, just read that as well. Thanks to all the a-holes who ruined it for everyone
Was ready to pull the trigger but no WIDES and NO RETURNS kills the deal for me. Too bad.
No wides and nothing smaller than a 8.5.
That's just dumb, especially for a hiking boot.
All sales final on something like boots just kills it for me. There are so many variables that come in to play with footwear that I'm not going to gamble on tossing $250 down a hole. Is there no way an exchange program with the vendor could be set up?
9's are already gone in both colors. Bummer.
Tips or info on sizing? Comparison to other boot brands like Asolo, Redwing, or Thorogood? Any help or suggestions would be much apreciated!

Second this. I'm not going to buy a pair of $250 boots sight unseen with no chance of return if I don't have an idea of how they fit.
Bombenhagel
Was a good call. I wear a size 11. Figured I'd get 11.5 to be safe. Nope. Looks like I needed a 12. This blows.
No 8.5? :(
Wish they came in Sasquatch sizes! 16EEE here. :(
Greatdane
they'd have to cost double with all that extra yak skin - lol
Where's the 8.5?
jmhall20
where's the 9.0f?
How do they handle winter i.e. at -20 celsius? Insulation? Thanks, Louis

Definitely in for one. I own Hanwag Alaska GTX and these are by far the best and most comfortable boots I've ever worn. Build like a tank. They did take some time to break in though. The Alaska is heavy duty hiking boot and look quite out of place with normal trendy clothes. But these would be perfect to wear casually with jeans and everyday fashion. I was deciding between this and the Gruten. The only difference is the Gruten has leather at the ankles also. But since this is on sale. Might as well :)

Happy to hear you like these, @gkstates Hanwag makes some of the best boots out there and we're really lucky to be working with them. The Tashi actually will have a lot easier and faster break-in period than your Alaskas, as they're meant more as a hybrid between hiking boots and a city-appropriate style.
Wow I just realized that I was looking at the retail price of these boots in euros at €300 and didn't notice the euro sign in front, it turns out the actual retail price of the boots in U.S. dollars is $425 god damn. This is actually a way better deal than I thought! Too bad I just bought some new boots or I would be all over these. Good luck to whoever decides to go with these!

Great update! Do you have any advice for sizing? Thanks!
angepocalypse
I would highly recommend going half a size up from what you usually wear so that your pinkie toe doesn't get squished, happened to me with my first pair and returned them for a size up. Definitely happy with the fit of the boots now.
Had a pair of their boots when I lived in Europe. VERY comfy and stabile and well worth the coin. Love these and Lowa boots.

Is boot waterproof?
Load 2 more comments
That's great info, Jacco - thanks for the response! After a lot of reading, I may try the lhasa. I need boots for few places but Yosemite, but it can get super wet there, so a Goretex something is probably the right option for me.
I, too am having a hard time deciding between this one and the Gruten. I was leaning toward the Gruten but they are not on sale and with this drop the Tashi is 100$ cheaper. Which one do you like better?
Could I get a reply from MD, oh I don't know, before the drop ends?

Communication is not always good here

Apologies, we get hundreds of comments every day and they're hard to keep up with since we also spend so much time securing products for the site!
Yes, it appears that there is a removable insole.
Can you remove the inner to put in your own insole?
Load 1 more comment
@kamandi Thanks for your reply but MD eventually replied. I would point out that for many of us it is important for sizing reasons to know if the inner can be removed. I have to order a 1/2 size up usually if there is no support and no inner.
Most of my boots are waterproof even though I prefer not to have them. My non-waterproof boots seem to work as well as my leather Gortex boots. If I really hike long my feet always seem to get wet, Gortex or no. They will get that way from overtopping or just perspiration. High end aggressive orthodontics (carbon fiber) will cut right through Gortex. I know from previous experience. I end up using off the shelf insoles for Gortex boots.
Edit: grammar correction
ChicagoWay
this is great information. Thanks! Yeah, I still haven't found the boot that works for me.
