I have wide-ish, but not crazy wide feet at an E width. I previously had a pair of Scarpa boots which were really well made, but were just too narrow in the tow box for me. I was constantly dealing with numb and crushed pinky toes and blisters galore. A local backpacking store recommended this brand as a high quality boot company with a roomier last. I wear a 9 in street shoes and ordinary athletic shoes. With hiking socks, I am a 9½ in these. They fit like they were made for just for me. The thinnish looking sole is deceiving. These boots are plenty flexible to be comfortable, but they are stiff and sturdy underfoot. Stepping on broken and embedded rocks, roots and the like, the boots protect the bottoms of your feet in the same way that much heavier boots would. They are not sneaker-like. They are stiffer than that. I have not used them to carry a heavy pack. I know they make heavier boots for that. For heavy day hikes, and shorter overnighters, these are perfect. I am very happy with them.

Hiked Pikes Peak (14 miles) on my first hike wearing the boots and they were comfortable. No pressure points, no blisters. I bought half a size larger than I normally wear to have room for thick socks and feet swelling and the size is right. Compared to my old pair of Kaylands, these have roomier toe box.

A very light weight, comfortable and stable boots. However, and a big however, I had the same problem as others with the midsole material first developing cracks and then chipping off on rocky terrain. I loved everything about these boots until the midsole problem started about 1 year in. I would not recommend these boots unless Lowa has fixed this fundamental problem.

I hate to say it, but the prevailing opinion in these reviews is spot-on: these boots fall apart quickly. I bought a pair for a 25-day backpacking trip through the High Sierra despite the warnings because the boots fit great, were comfortable and appeared to be very rugged. By the fifth day of the trip, after 40 miles of use, the soles were literally falling apart. Portions of the edges had fallen off such that there were fairly large gaps around the edges. The rubber in these areas resembled a pool toy that had sat out in the sun for years, an obvious sign that the sole was made of inferior rubber. A large fraction of the sole around the heel had nearly severed off in a large chunk. I applied liberal superglue to this large chunk but this didn't make much difference. By the end of the trip the tread had worn down past the halfway point. The tread underneath the tip of the toe and end of the heel had completely worn off such that I was down to smooth rubber. The rest of the boot held up okay (with the exception of the threading along an apparently cosmetic strip coming loose). Don't be fooled by the rugged appearance, these are light hikers not meant to last. I'm shocked a boot company that cares about its reputation would make such a low-quality product marketed to high-end users, or anyone for that matter. Don't buy these boots unless you're okay with purchasing a disposable product.

I was looking for a lightweight hiking boot and decided to try Lowa. The boots broke in quickly and I headed to MT for some rough trail hikes. After a day on some rocky trails I noticed the soft grey sub-sole was cracked and failing in many spots with gouges tore out from sharp rocks. The grey appears to be some type of foam. So while you will look sharp sitting by the camp fire or walking around the Old Faithful visitor center, it would be best to pass on this boot if you are planning serious hikes.
