I have weak ankles and a very high arch. I have difficulty walking long distance and hiking, but the support and comfort that my Wenger Eiger boot provides is incredible and I can hike again!

I feel stronger than ever because they hug my feet and ankles without feeling squeezed, uncomfortable, and heavy. Even better, I love the stylish look. I shouldn’t be surprised, because Wenger are the folks who make the Genuine Swiss Army Knife.

Wenger Footwear

Wenger is no ordinary footwear line. The shoes includes: Molded insoles that adjust to the contours of the feet and promote air circulation/breathability;
Anti-microbial and anti-bacterial liners and insoles; Anatomically designed foot bed, including extra cushioning; Welded, seamless linings to prevent chafing and irritation; And other design and manufacturing processes to maximize protection of the foot.

Three propriety technologies can be found throughout the Wenger Footwear line.  These patent-pending technologies are used to provide enhanced levels of comfort and performance while reducing stress to the foot:

The Spydraflex System: a multi-density outsole that protects the sole of the foot, absorbs and disperses impact;

Active Inertia System (AIS): displaces vibrations to the outer edges of the shoe, redirecting impact outward instead of upwards;

Temposit: a sole that allows shoes to adapt to the climate; hardens in cold weather, softens in hot weather to offer exceptional traction in all conditions.

The Eiger boot is part of the Alps Collection, a family of five shoes is named after the mountains of the Swiss Alps: Eiger, Shiltorn, Lotschen, Matterhorn and Interlaken. Every shoe utilizes technically advanced components, with state-of-the-art engineering and is designed for maximum performance, fit and comfort. The line includes styles that will suit the needs of everyone from the most avid outdoorsman to the casual hiker like me.

Wenger’s Eiger hiking boot is the boot that told my feet that I can hike again. These shoes are designed for comfort, functionality, versatility, and are not confined to one use. I love them!
