What makes our hiking boots so special?

In all areas BÄR is cooperating with the most marketleaders, professional, experienced and advanced suppliers to bring the final product to the top of the list regarding quality, sustainability and technology. Particularly in the high end requirements in the field of outdoor and hiking, BÄR collaborates with VIBRAM ® as market leader in soles for these technically challenging purpose. BÄRs innovative Firmoflex ® concept combined with the excellent engineering of hiking soles brings out the maximum customer satisfaction by functionality like uphill/downhill grip support, selfcleaning, longlasting compounds, nonslip, and biomechanic support. BÄR develops innovative products with Vibram for more than 14 years.


Tradition combined with innovation. Proven quality leather combined with functional lightweight mesh textile inserts for comfort, ventilation and durability. The lowered collar and low drawcord eyelet provide additional stability, heel support and cushioning without restricting freedom of movement - especially downhill.


Durable cushioning without material fatigue - the special Vibram lightweight PU foam of the midsole.


When running uphill, the extra angled profiles at the front of the sole claw into the ground and support a power-saving ascent. When running downhill, the wedge profiles of the heel brake and provide stability. Optimally arranged profiles provide enough surface area for low abrasion, but excellent grip and - if it gets wet - water displacement.

This shoe has changed my life!  I have flat feet and always a problem because of the wide feet to find shoes. I had already all "known" brands through and no hope more but then I got these shoes recommended and already at the first test I noticed that the shoes give hold and are still super comfortable! No pressure and the foot sits firmly! 100% freedom for the toe freihet is really given here and not an empty promise. 


The shoes held up well to the rugged terrain, whether dust, snow, scree or boulders. Also, the Vibram soles offered the best grip on the different terrain, as should be the case with good mountain boots. Absolute purchase recommendation on my part.


slip in and just feel good :-) ... I have not experienced this for a long time, he wears really pleasantly light and fits great. Thank you for the great shoe.


I am really pleased with these shoes. They can be used in all kinds of weather in all kinds of terrain. They are so very comfortable.


This year, after 15 years, new Trevisos were due. For 15 years, the old Treviso has kept its promise to Bär. For safe footing and ankle protection, there is nothing better for us.


I have had back problems for a long time, which have improved considerably since i switched to bear (arnstein), hurts my wallet quite a bit, but is really recommendable.


I love these shoes - they are comfortable, supportive, and fit my toes beautifully. The felt lining is lovely and soft and beautiful for winter walks. I love the design and the side-zip, makes them easy to get on and off. Good, supportive sole (not flexible like a barefoot shoe, more like a normal hiking boot). They're great. Thank you!


The price of the shoe (High Performance 2.5) is not exactly cheap, but the shoe easily makes up for this with its good quality and durability. These shoes are highly recommended!


I am totally thrilled, the fit is really so what comfortable. Absolutely perfect for my somewhat wide feet, just slip in and feel good. I will donate the rest of my shoes, because the BÄR shoe is the right choice for me. I no longer buy other shoes, only BÄR!!!!!


As expected, it gives with a wonderful running feeling. This delightfully light athletic shoe is used as a walking shoe because of my foot problems. It seems airy and hopefully not as warm as my other athletic shoes. Optics very nice, color also. Am very satisfied.


Endurance test passed!

Ramona and René known as the "berg.buddys" were on the road with our BERGKOMFORT hiking boots in Salzburger Land and in the Dolomites. These were extensively tested there. Through their passion for hiking, they have already gained a lot of experience and know exactly what makes a good hiking boot. 


"With the hiking boots from BÄR, I noticed right from the first fitting: these shoes are different! When looking at the shoe from above, I immediately noticed the wide toe box. I was curious to see how this would feel on the mountain and I was not disappointed! I had the feeling that my feet could already move much more naturally during the hike in the area of the toes, almost like walking barefoot! Especially when taking off my shoes after our day on the mountain, I noticed that my toes were not "bruised" and swollen at all. I am thrilled and have the feeling my feet with these shoes really do something good! While my husband René also particularly raved about the good grip, I underlined several times how nice it is to finally have hiking boots in my favorite color!
For us women definitely also visually a real highlight!"   


 "I was particularly thrilled by the wide toe box. Initially unusual, but I would no longer want to live without this feeling of freedom. Despite the flexible sole, there was always enough cushioning and stiffness. Furthermore, I found the boot to be top processed, with many interesting solutions such as the deep draw hook. My conclusion is. Who is looking for an all-leather hiking boot and also wants to be more alpine sometimes on the road, is top served with BÄR " 

Whether on high peaks or gentle cams, the feeling of being in the middle of nature is unlikely to ever become routine. In the midst of forests, high above the rest of the world and away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, the fascination of hiking really begins to take effect. With every step you take, you can let this energy take effect on you and simply switch off. But what happens when your feet start to hurt, the first pressure points appear or your joints start to complain?

 Thanks to shoes from BÄR, you can enjoy this experience in complete comfort. Freedom of movement, high-quality materials and attention to detail are just a few of the features that make Bär shoes so special. So put on your shoes and let's go.


"Busy days at the office, extended shopping trips, walks or long hikes. My father Christian Bär came up with the revolutionary idea of uncompromising toe freedom more than 30 years ago. It was combined with the zero heel and the highest material quality. From an orthopaedically conceived "comfort shoe", an attractive product portfolio was created around the natural walking feeling - combined with design quality for the highest demands."
