I have been wearing this model of Lowa for 10 years. this new version runs at least 1-1 1/2 sizes small. The toe box in very low and it feels more like a running shoe that the hiking shoe it used to be.

Ordering was simple, the shoes shipped quickly and everything went smoothly. I tried many retail stores and none were in stock in my size - Zappos had them!

I bought these because of excellent experience with a pair of Lowa hiking boots. The boots lasted a decade and more than 1,000 miles of mountain trail hiking, and were the most comfortable shoes of any kind that I had, so my expectations were high. Alas, the Lowa Tempest Lo doesn't measure up. They're "water resistant," but not waterproof, so there's no membrane or gusset around the tongue of the shoe to keep water out. The occasional raindrop won't penetrate, but if a puddle is even a teeny bit over your shoe-top, the water will flow right in around the tongue. The heel is elevated compared to other walking and hiking shoes I've worn, which I find uncomfortable while walking, and the toe box is (for me) too big. I have "C" width feet, and almost no one makes shoes in that width, so I usually make do with the much more common "D" or "M" width. In this case, the toe box is just a little too wide to be comfortable, even with thick wool hiking socks. There's no heel slip, but there's too much room in the toe box. The shoes do have good traction in wet weather and over snow, but they're not insulated, so I can't recommend them for routine wear in genuinely cold weather, and they're relatively heavy. The shoes look fine. I like the style, the laces hold securely, and the pull-strap at the heel is large enough to actually be useful. Overall, they're not bad, but they're not especially good, either. I rate them a disappointment.

Warning: Very small for size, at least 1 to 1 1/2 sizes too short & narrow. I measure an 11 1/2 C & ordered a 12 D. Even with light socks, my feet were pinched immediately. I never wore them off a rug. Returned.

The shoes are not made to the same standard used in the late 90's. What was once 100 percent is now 97¾ percent simply because the 2 percent have taken more than their share by using cheaper labor. Zappos has always been 100 percent (replacing the defective product immediately)! Threads are not stitched correctly on two pairs this year. These are the best shoes in the world, the only pair I ever wear and are perfect when made correctly.
