Haglöfs' hardwearing shell boot made of one layer robust and environmentally friendly premium leather, in a clean classic design. Unique Recco application for trekking boots makes you searchable in the outdoors. The one layer leather concept makes it possible to vary usage after temperature and comfort, and extend the season
Clean design and effective function meets advanced innovation in the Haglöfs Barken boot. The boot is built simply with one layer of leather for lightness and comfort – varying the temperatures it can be used in, and therefore extending its use across the seasons. However, it's also an advanced piece of outdoor equipment, with the features that you need when you're tackling challenging terrain.
The boot is made from premium Terra-care leather, protected by a tough rubber rand, with a leather gusset to stop those annoying pebbles from getting inside, and leather linings and heel fits providing a snug, comfortable fit. It also features a versatile Vibram Four Season outsole for tried and tested traction, and the leather is water resistant – keep treating it for a long-lasting weather resistant boot which can be used all year round. The boot is built high on the ankle for added support, stability and protection.
Barken also features an integrated Recco tracker, for safety and searchability, and additional convenient features like a heel webbing loop for easy pull-on and storage and a quick, easy lace locking system. The environmentally friendly leather is really the icing on the cake. Consider these boots essential for getting you to where you want to be.
Haglöfs was founded over a century ago in, Torsang, Sweden, by a forester’s son named Wiktor Haglöf, who designed and assembled a backpack for local workers. From those humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the largest suppliers of outdoor clothing, and equipment in the world.
Each Haglöfs product is carefully designed to work in harmony with another, be it backpack, sleeping back, boot or clothing. Versatility is key; after all, it doesn’t matter if running a boggy UK trail, sending technical alpine climbs, or trekking in Patagonia; whatever you’re doing, it’s more enjoyable with kit you can trust.
Haglöfs core values of reliability, curiosity and pride are what sets it apart from other outdoor brands, and helps it to win over the not-so-easily-charmed customers. Reliability means that you can count on Haglöfs products to perform and last. Curiosity speaks to the company’s compulsion to constantly push forward, to innovate and evolve. Pride is about a true passion for everything they do, a passion perpetuated by the men and women who work for Haglöfs, themselves outdoor enthusiasts and former professionals.
