<p>The Hanwag Friction II GTX are light, stable and limited crampon resistant alpine mountain boots for classic alpine tours with glacier crossings and via ferrata.</p><p>Thanks to its high shaft and waterproof, breathable and insulating Gore-Tex® lining, the robust mountain boot offers optimum protection in the harsh high mountain climate.</p><p>Like its predecessors, it is a specialist for alpine trekking with very good climbing performance and has sufficient room for thicker socks thanks to its wider-cut lasts in the forefoot area. In any case, this allows unhindered blood circulation to the toes - an essential prerequisite for preventing frostbite. The Friction II GTX can be precisely adjusted for a non-slip fit with its forefoot and shaft lacing, which can be controlled in a targeted manner.</p><p>The cushioning structure of the sole is equipped with good stiffening and the Vibram® Dolomit Plus profiled sole with climbing zone provides a very good grip. A crampon mount on the heel makes it possible to wear semi-automatic crampons.</p>
