I live in a rural community and there are hilly slopes with rugged terrain and there is one glaring negative with these boots. I've had them for over a year and I have avoided turning my ankle over in them to the point of a sprain but that's because I know they lack lateral stability and the confidence isn't there, so I watch it. If I didn't these boots would have totally failed me by now. The design with the cloth lacing woven into the boot along with the fact that the sides just allow too much lateral movement to be stable. I could see a military application in a desert setting but for work or even hiking in uneven terrain steer clear of these boots. Without an insole they aren't even wearable. I bought a montrail heat molded insole but even with that the boot just seems too malleable and just not stable enough to avoid ankle turns and mishaps. I waited for a long time before writing this as I paid a good price for them and I didn't want to be hasty in my criticism. Enough time has elapsed and the problem is just an inherent design flaw and that if you're going to be walking or working in either wooded areas or any place that demands side to side stability and rock solid support you wont find that with these boots.

After 25 years in the Military and an unknown number of issued boots, these are the best for the money! I have a pair of the Renegade GTX Mids in brown leather (also awesome) and wanted something lighter in color and material, for my Mid-East rotations as a contract pilot. I wear a 10.5 and since the Renegades fit perfectly, I just called Lowa direct and ordered these (forgot to look at Zappos! first for price...oh well, company paid). No break in period, took them right out of the box on a 60 day rotation to Iraq. 120 degrees during the day and my feet felt just fine. I did replace the original felt liners with some memory foam insoles purchased at a Military uniform shop...Wow! Now they are the perfect boots! Waterproof and comfortable, if you are sick of the "stuff" we get issued, spend the money on a pair of these, your feet will thank you!

I hate giving and sense of a negative review just because my feet are a little weird. I vary between a normal and wide width .. and these were just a tad bit tight in the toe box ... not a lot tight, just a touch. I was thinking about just dealing with it and see if my if my foot and new Zephyrs got a long ... but Id hate to waste that money. Only if they came in wide! Nice looking boot though ... sure wish they had a wide.

Looks great. Feels great. Fits snug so you don't need to worry too much about your ankles.

I wear a size 8.5 wide mens boot so I ordered a size 9 mens, they do not make this boot in wide. I ended up returning them as they were too small and too narrow for my foot. I am a small person, but I guess I have wide feet. I was trying to replace my 5.11 Tactical XRPT Desert boots, but after putting the two on I am going to stick with the 5.11's they are just so comfortable. The Lowa's were very tight and very snug around the toe. I supposed I could have "gotten used to them", but for $210 I should not have to "get used to them". I am afraid I will not be buying any brand of these boots as they do not make them in wide.

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
