These hikers fit my narrow, flat foot well right away. I have logged numerous miles in them, through mud and over rocks and they still look and feel great. I have not gotten any blisters, black toenails or problems at all (like I have had in other hikers). The waterproofing seems to work well too.

I loved the look andfit of these shoes for an upcoming trip but they were unbearably hot even with smart wool socks.

This shoe is very wide in the heel! I wear an extra narrow but can usually wear a narrow boot with a thick sock. I laced the boots so tight that my feet started to tingle but the heel still slipped when I walked. I was so disappointed!

Good shoe when I bought it, but sole delaminated, just after a year of VERY LIGHT use. Lowa company declined to repair or replace it even after I sent them in for inspection, and DID admit that the shoes were hardly even used. I'll avoid them from now on.

Beautifully made. I need a narrow size for my heel that isn't available, unfortunately. Had hopes. Otherwise, perfect!

Love the shoes. Fit, comfort, durability are all excellent. No need to break these in. I'm an avid dog walker and situated in very cold weather during winter months. Though I plan to use year-round. Glad I got them.

I bought these for a trip to Europe. Spent two weeks walking a few miles every day, and found them very comfortable without any break in. Wore them to a music festival & they got pretty muddy, cleaned up nicely with a shoe brush. I have a slightly narrow foot and they fit very well. Coincidentally my cousin who I traveled with also had a new pair of Lowas & she was very happy with hers as well.

I love these shoes! There was no "breaking in" period like there is with some. Excellent support, comfortable and I would absolutely buy these again!

I have no complain about the size and width (slightly narrower than my feet, but it is M, so I am OK with it). but I thought the hiking shoes are supposed to be cushioning, this pair: the insole is hard and body is stiff.

I bought these so I could have a shoe version of my beloved hiking boots. I wear orthotics and they work very nicely in this shoe since it had no arch and I've been wearing them every day. I have a low profile narrow foot and tried many shoes and this one is the only one that worked for me. It's all about fit, finding the right one for your particular foot. I do wish it came in narrow like the boot.

I have a relatively wide foot. Size 10.5 D or E. At first these shoes were a bit snug, but then they accommodated my feet. Now, this is the best fitting shoe I have ever owned! I wear them all the time for all occasions!

These shoes were great. Put them on and went to Alaska! Very comfortable and my feet did not get wet or cold. Lots of support and did not feel clunky like some hiking shoes.

Really, really wanted to love this boot. The heel part, however, slipped in the back. Not the boot's fault, just a matter of the last not quite fitting my particular foot. Obviously well made. Comfortable when I wore it around the house.

This shoe would be great to wear for someone that does not need to wear orthodics. The shoe became to tight and narrow once I inserted the pad and orthodics. My husband's Lowa's fit me much better than the women's style. We held the shoes next to each other and the size was the same but the width surely showed the women's was much narrower. I will order the men's shoe next time.

This is clearly a well-made shoe, and I'm bummed that the toe box is just a bit too tight for me. They're quite comfortable elsewhere, seem to have great support, and have a cool look to them too.

Nicely made shoe, but squeezes my baby toes - the toe box doesn't seem high enough. My feet are low volume, high-arched, with narrow heels and wide toes, and the baby toes are quite, um, hammered, so they're sensitive to any discontinuities in stitching or other lumps and bumps in a shoe's toe box. I wear a U.S. 6.5-7 in dress shoes, and I ordered 7.5, which also felt a bit short. I tried these on after a hike, so the feet would recognize comfort...or not. They didn't, sadly. Also, the charcoal-gray color is quite dark, darker than the image on my screen, for what it's worth.
