Though it's pricier than most LOWA boots, the Tibet GTX is worth it for the warmth, stability, and comfort. This boot works well for longer hikes and provides great ankle support.
Some customers disliked the stiffness and heaviness of these boots.
A soft footbed, good arch support, and a padded 5" collar make this boot a comfortable pick. These boots shouldn't need to be broken in, and the Vibram sole provides great traction on tough surfaces.
These aren't the most durable boots, as some customers reported that soles wore down after some time.
These comfortable, lightweight boots will take you miles without blisters or pain. The GORE-TEX lining keeps water out well, and customers love that lacing stays tight after a full day of hiking.
These run narrow and were uncomfortable for some as a result.
This boot deals well with all seasons, and its waterproofing is so reliable that you can submerge the boot without getting soaked. The durable sole should last you through several seasons.
Some customers reported that the stitches separated or the leather cracked over time.
Similar to the Tibet GTX, but designed with winter in mind. Even in sub-zero temperatures, this boot should keep your feet warm and comfortable. The 9" shaft keeps snow and ice out and the breathable design keeps you from overheating.
The size of these runs a bit small, so order accordingly.
