Lowa Zephyr GTX Mid Lowa

Reviewer: BCB from Coastal Plain of Georgia
Totally Impressed! Product is great, shipping was fast and price was really good. After getting plantar fasciitis from running in my old hunting boots I read these offered great support. It is all true! The price was so good I paid for fast shipping and it was at my house at 10:30 the next day! 5 stars for Lowa and Shoebuy!

Danner Danner 453 GTX 5.5" ST Don't fit well

Reviewer: CSN from GreenBay, WI
Don't like them at all, too narrow. I have a pair of Danner 1200 gram hunting boots and LOVE them. Fit perfect, warm, comfortable so I bought these, same size and width and they're too narrow and not comfortable at all. Very regrettable purchase.

Danner Striker 45 II GTX 4.5" Not Happy

Reviewer: Robert from Miami
I have bought Danners for years now and this is the first pair that I do not like. Instead of the 4.5 inch its now 6", almost a full boot and very uncomfortable.

Lowa Renegade III GTX Mid I may be the ultimate tester

Reviewer: Bonnie from Mount Hood, Oregon
I had a very bad accident with multiple broken bones in my foot. Had 3 very involved surgeries. I am left unable to work. And I thought unable to walk. I ordered 18 different hiking boots thru mail order. These are the only boots/shoes that have allowed me to walk. I bought 3 pairs to rotate them & have worn them exclusively for 18 months . This pretty much says it all about support and comfort.

Lowa Creek II GTX Great boots!

Reviewer: Daniel J from Saint-Armand, Quebec
Excellent boots from an excellent manufacturer. This is the second pair of Lowa boots I've owned, and I'll always get Lowa from now on. These boots in particular are as light as feathers and just as comfortable. The height of the boot makes for a very secure fit and ankle support is ample. Highly recommended winter boot.
Wears this shoe: Whenever I'm outside in the countryside in cold weather.
