I had a broken Fibula fixed (with metal fixation bar) because I wiped out on my scooter, in China. After 8 weeks recovery I talked my doctor (in Ohio) into letting me switch to a soft ankle brace and these boots. They are very comfortable to wear for long periods. I have bought many hiking boots in my life. These seem the most comfortable fit and yet have good support. I will return to China soon and be wearing these boots along side many Chinese workers, riding to work in their sandals. Ha ha ha

Once in possession, it is clear to see why these boots are so well liked by many. All of the finer details have been thought out!

Very nice boot. Nice eyelet hardware. The toe box is a little wider than the Scarpa. The heel box is a little tighter than the Scarpa.

This is my second pair of Lowas I have purchased for back country hunting. The first pair were the Hunter GTXs, almost 7 years ago (and they are still holding up great for their age and use) I went with the Tibets this time for a boot better suited to the warmer, earlier hunting seasons. There isn't much about the Lowa boots that hasn't already been said. They are quality boots that offer excellent support and comfort in steep, nasty conditions. If taken care of properly, they will hold up to many years worth of abuse. The only thing I would suggest it to toss the Lowa insoles as soon as you get them as they are junk for a $350+ boot. I wear a 12 in most every shoe out there, but with a new pair of Lowas, they felt slightly too big for me, and didn't offer very good arch support. Before even attempting to break the boot in, I added a pair of Spenco Total Support Max insoles, and the boots instantly felt to be sized perfectly with great arch support and foot bed cushioning. Get a quality insole such as Spenco or Superfeet paired with these boots, and you won't regret it.

I'd also recommend: Lathrop & Sons, Kennetrek, Hanwag, Meindl

These have been the best boots I have ever purchased. I added a half-size to give some room for wool socks and the fit is perfect. I've had these boots for 5 years and only in the last 6 months have the soles started to separate. I've taken these boots on desert hikes, alpine treks, and work in the field. They have gone through some tough climates, maintained their comfort, and lasted. You couldn't ask for more in a mid-heavyweight boot. I believe buying these boots to be one of the best investments a back country guide can make. I'm spending the money for another pair and hope to get another 5 year lifespan out of them.

I'd also recommend: Lowa Renegade
