Have hiked in Lowa boots for years and find them very comfortable, but this latest pair I bought has been very disappointing. After only about 60-70 hours of hiking in somewhat rugged terrain, the top part of the rubber sole at the front of both boots is pulling away from the leather upper. What has happened to Lowa's quality control?

Has great ankle support. Too narrow, so will have to return.

The Lowa Innox Evo is a comfortable trail shoe, however, it is not durable. After running three 50K races on moderately technical trails, the soles (in particular, the heel) were in very difficult shape (see image below). Based on my experience, I don't believe these shoes are durable enough for tough trails, however, for the individual looking for a comfortable hiker on groomed/tame trails, the Lowa Innox could be the right gear for you.

Wanted to love these boots. They were so comfortable as far as fit and room in the toe box. But after wearing around the house for a little bit the bottom of my feet started to hurt. Realized there was absolutely no cushioning between my foot and the bottom of the boot. My feet would have been miserable after a hiking trip. So, sadly I sent them back.

Sturdy, comfortable and waterproof. After one wearing at home, I wore these hiking in Norway. We climbed mountains and it rained every day; No blisters and my feet stayed dry. I did put in some cushier insoles. In street shoes I wear a size 6.5 C or 7 C, and I bought these in an 8 wide. They are good little boots.

I was looking for a light weight shoe, this wasn't it.

Minimal break in. Excellent grip. Extremely well made. These should last quite awhile!

Sales person guaranteed delivery next day. Good thing I called because they lied to me and said it would be 5 to 7 days before I would receive them after they charged my bank, Then they said they would send me another pair for 50.00 less but would charge my card again for the full amount and give me a 50.00 discount on my next order. Stay away from this place not trust worthy at all. When I called I got someone in the Philippines and could not understand half of what she said, Very frustrating. Never again. I'm out

These boots are great looking, the waterproofing will keep your feet dry even after many hours of wet conditions. I can verify the durability as I've had these boots for two years. The soles are very hard with no cushioning at all and that is probably why after two years they show very little wear. My feet on the other hand have been worn out by these shoes. I will not buy this model again and I only recommend it if it will be worn for short periods.

These were great boots and I loved them UNTIL I moved and left them in a closet for a year and they disintegrated! I was appalled and called Lowa who informed me they do disintegrate if not worn for a while because of the type of polyurethane the soles are made of = beware of polyurethane soles--very disappointed!

First time wearing a Lowa shoe. Very impressed with the fit fill and construction. Will definitely purchase another Lowa product.

These boots are comfortable but alas the soles disintegrate where they are bonded in front = stay away! I contacted Lowa and they offered me 30% off on another pair. I told them I wouldn't buy disintegrating boots for 30% off and that I would write this review--no response.

I purchased two pair of these shoes as I wasn't sure which would be best for me. I started with the size 39.5. These fit me perfectly so no need to try the smaller size (38.5). These are very comfortable shoes from the first moment I put them on. I really like the wider toe box. Laces stay tied and are plenty long enough to make tying shoes very easy. The understated color will be perfect during our European vacation. Returning the smaller size was extremely easy. I highly recommend these shoes and Zappos!

I have the Lowa renegade boots and love them. The shoes are NOT the same: incredibly stiff, and pretty heavy. Must return.

These shoes are a nice style. They don't look like a hiking shoe, but more like a running shoe. The sole is wide and gives good stability, it's very lightweight, breathable, the toe box is comfortable, and the shoe overall has good support. It even has good arch support. It fit great, true to my 6.5M size. However, the top of the lacing and the tongue are longer than some shoes, and they dig into the front of my ankle when I walk. It could be because I have a narrower heel/ankle, so have to lace the shoes a little tighter than average at the top. I would have loved to keep this pair of shoes, but they just won't quite work for my foot.

This is a great warm/hot weather hiking or work boot. Since it is not gore tex lined, your feet breathe better in dry hot conditions. I bought this because the fit is similar to the Low Renegade GTX which I will use on the Inca Trail and my 2nd trip to Kiliminjaro, but I needed the Zephyr to do my training in Houston during the summer and fall. I subsequently have used them though for activities such as moving heavy boxes where the support is important. have received many compliments on the looks and I have raved about the comfort and fit to everyone that has asked. I did replace the insoles with Superfeet Green but I do that with pretty much everything. Can't go wrong with this boot.

Loved these boots initially. They were old but little used but looked to be in great condition. Uppers and tread still looked excellent and were comfortable to wear around the neighborhood. Took them hiking a few weeks ago and the sole separated while on an uphill hike. Had to tie the laces under the soles to make it back downhill. I contacted Lowa and was told that they do not consider this a quality or manufacturing defect. They use polyurethane mid - soles, something other manufacturers do not. For good reason! This material is susceptible to hydrolysis or "dry rot" (their explanation and actual words- "dry rot!") They claim if the boots are used frequently this is less likely to happen. No apology or anything, just a statement that this is what this material can do. Offered to give me a token discount for ordering more of their dangerous product. No thank you. These boots are dangerous! They can literally rot (while still looking fine!. They should come with a warning. I will never buy another Lowa product.

I work backstage in a theater, so I need something lightweight, quiet, & good for doing a lot of stairs. This fit the bill pretty well. This is a bit lighter grey in person than on my monitor, but still suitable for work. It's quite comfortable right out of the box, although I think I will wind up stretching the toe box a bit, as I can feel it rubbing on my little toe.

beautifully made, but I sure could not wear them out of the box. In fact they are quite stiff, and even with thick socks my foot moved around. Tried different insoles, extra pair of socks, different lacing technique for narrow heels, but I just could not get comfortable walking around inside my house. The insoles that come with the shoes are not good. Would have to use my own. Regardless I could not get comfortable. Must return.

I've had these for 10 months. First problem was that the laces were different lengths. Since that time I've had to have the toecaps resewed as the stitching came loose. Now the tread on the soles is wearing off. Almost smooth in some parts of the sole. Very unhappy. All this in 10 months.
