What can I say about this boot? It's light, its fast, it's supportive and it has practically no break in period. Great boot for me right out of the box. Wore it around the store the first day and then took it on a 7 mile hike the next. About 5 of it moderately flat and then scrambling up, traversing across and full on climbing up and down a rock face. These boots did it all for me, the lengthy part of the hike went by without me even noticing, would have went longer if I had the time. During the climb up and down there was great traction, the only issue I had was a little foot movement on the way down. Probably should have laced them up a bit tighter. Decided to put my superfeet in them for now and haven't run into the same problem. Only downside to the boots in my opinion is the color. I would be happier with something a little less bright.

Lowa has several excellent lightweight hiking boots and the Ferrox GTX Mid is no exception. The Ferrox manages to pack a lot of stability while keeping the weight down at about a pound per boot with Lowa's Monowrap midsole. Also found in the popular Renegade, the Monowrap is a PU frame wrapping around the entire boot, cradling your foot through every stride. I found this to be extremely comfortable and stable without being overly stiff. The outsole has a good amount of flex underfoot thanks to the 3/4 nylon shank, however the arch support is unfortunately absent for those with mid or high arches. A Superfeet insert quickly solves that issue. Lowa's rubber compound favors durability over traction, I noticed a lack of tackiness when climbing on smooth surfaces. The tread pattern is more than adequate for loose terrain however. The inside of the boot can feel slightly claustrophobic, the Gore-Tex liner is a bit suffocating and the boot has a consistent width from heel to toe. Those with shapely feet might prefer a boot with a roomier toe box. Loosening the laces helps, but I like a snug fit. I wish there were more color options available other than black and neon, but they were soon covered in dirt anyways.

I had been reading online over the last year, that LOWA's quality has been going downhill. I couldn't believe it, because LOWA has been my go-to boot company for decades. I bought these boots with great confidence. When they arrived, the left boot was sewn crooked on the last, the stitching was loose in places, and it looked like a cheap boot I could buy at a big-box store. The boot seems narrower than a men's "medium" or "D" size, which will be great for some people but horrible for others. It's a nice looking, lightweight boot, but apparently LOWA is having their customers do their QC now. If you have the time to send boots back and forth until you get a pair that's put together correctly, I guess it's a little like playing roulette until you get a good pair. Thankfully, at least with Zappos, the shipping is free both ways; all it will cost you to play the LOWA roulette, is tape and gas back and forth to the post office. Sad to see a once-great company such as LOWA, fall so far, so fast.

I'd also recommend: I don't know. I've only ever used LOWA. I feel so sad about having to find a new brand.
