Fantastic boot! I gulped at the price, but was pleased right out of the box. Great details, and superb workmanship. Mine have about 20 miles on them so far, and don't have a mark on them! I haven't had one hot spot or blister. I debated about going half a size bigger, but the 10.5 has settled in nicely. They feel like they were custom made for my foot. I have a medium arch. I love the lace system, and especially like the post on the tongue, that holds it exactly where you put it! No pinching around the ankle, the back is just soft enough to give when you need it. These will take you anywhere you want to go! They are sturdy, perfect for hiking with a heavy pack. These are an investment, but your trip won't be ruined because of your feet! Zappos is the best internet store in the world!Read more » « Show less February 1, 2012 by Anonymous

I have had these boots for a little over two years now and initially I loved them, thought they were probably the best boots I have ever owned (have had boots made by Scarpa, Asolo, Columbia, Red Wing, to name a few). Unfortunately, about a year after purchasing them I ran into problems with the appearance of cracking just below the toe box where the leather meets the rubber. I wore these almost every day for long periods of time (12-14 hours a day...I'm in Afghanistan) but I cleaned them regularly. I also conditioned re-waterproofed them every couple of months with Nikwax. When I called the LOWA customer service number to report my issues and ask if there was another cleaning/conditioning/waterproofing product I could use the representative was less than helpful. She asked if the leather was still soft (it was) she then said "don t worry about it if the leather is still soft." When I asked her for an alternate product recommendation she said "sorry we can't recommend anything." The boots are now worthless in wet weather as the cracking has progressed and the boots leak (due to the cracking). This may be to the fact the leather is extremely thin and nowhere near the 2mm thickness that a boot of this price should have (more like .5-1mm). Conclusion: The boot is extremely comfortable but should only be used on a limited basis as opposed to everyday wear. If you are looking for something that you can depend on for extended use, look somewhere else.Read more » « Show less January 13, 2013 by Kevin C

My journey at Zappos started with a pair of Scarpas that I thought I just had to have. It's a beautiful boot if you have narrow feet - I don't. I was frustrated with a pair of boots that were not going to fit my feet. The solution to my problem started with a phone call to Zappos. I was immediately put at ease with help and assurance from the professionals at Zappos. I talked they listened. I asked for advice. A pair of "wide" Lowa Tibet Pro GTX's was suggested. My needs have been met. I now have what I wanted - a pair of boots that feel like an old pair of my favorite blue jeans. Yes, they are heavy - I needed heavy for durability and protection for spring, summer, fall, and winter hiking. I thank you Zappos for getting and keeping me on the trail.

I have used many brands over the years, and most boots are garbage when you have to be on your feet, from climbing to working in all conditions, and need ankle support second to none and comfort second to none. If you wear boots daily to work in on various terrains and types of labor, then this is the king! Buy two pairs, use Spenco inserts and alternate the boots every day. These boot hold up as no other can! I have give away other boots after a week as they sucked and the were top rated too. It takes me about 18 to 24 months to wear them down including the lugs, but they do not come apart or do the inside liner around your toes wear out under long hours use. It could be clean wool socks and using a different pair every day or they are just the best! My feet and my ankle tells me these these are it. No I am not paid nor connected to this site or the boot maker.
I'd also recommend: none

I've owned my Lowa Tibet Pro GTX boots since July 2009. Now that I've had a chance to hike about 100 miles in all 4 seasons, I thought a couple of comments may help you in your decision. Overall, I am very happy with the performance and construction of the boot. Truly a 4 season hiking / backpacking boot. When I purchased my Lowa Tibet Pro GTX, I was looking for something with pretty high ankle support. A year earlier, I rupture my achilles tendon. So, I was looking for some extra support while carrying a heavy backpack. Outstanding comfort and support. I love the wider and softer sole. My only other comparison is to my Asolo GTX (mids). The Asolo has a narrower and harder sole. In fact my Lowa is so comfortable, I've started to run in them on trails with my golden retriever. Very stable sole. The sizing seems true. Perhaps a bit on the narrrow side. I suspect the low profile Superfeet (blue) insoles I put in are taking up some of the volume. My feet sweat a lot. But, with the Lowas I've never had problems over heating in the summer or cooling down too much in the winter. Very breathable and waterproof. Even after 100 miles in snow and rocky trails in Yosemite, the boots look almost brand new. The boots will be stiff for a while until they break in. I highly recommend the Lowa Tibet Pro GTX to any avid hiker / backpacker. A truly comfortable 4 season backpacking boot. I look forward to many more miles exploring in my Lowas.

Nice boot, well constructed. Price is kind of up there but you get what you pay for. This boot is very supportive and your ankle won't bend much when cinched up tight. Made for carrying weight which was perfect for me. Just gave it 4 stars as far as comfort goes because it was very stiff to walk in. Might get a bit more comfortable as time goes on. All in all, satisfied with the purchase. Just wish price would have been a bit lower.
