Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.

This is my second pair of these boots. Comfortable and stability are premium. I've worn this boot for 1 1/2 years 5 or 6 days a week and it's still got a lot of use left in it.
Wears this shoe: mostly at work and some light hiking

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!

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.

I bought these boots a little over two years ago. Luckily I did some research and ordered a half size larger than I normally wear. They were very comfortable right out of the box. These were my first choice for a non-Gortex boot which would not be too warm in hot climates. If you are looking for a boot to keep your feet dry, buy the Gortex model. I only have two minor negative comments about the boot. The laces were terrible. They didn't slide easily through the eyelets and wore out easily. The laces suck, but it's an easy fix. My second complaint is that I think they are about the ugliest boot out there. Having said that, I bought a second pair. The soles finally wore out on the first pair and split across the ball of my foot. These boots were primarily worn in rugged rocky terrain with a lot of thorny vegetation. The sole was sticky enough to prevent slipping on rock faces. I never had a thorn pierce the sole and puncture my foot. Ankle support was adequate during extended humps, CQB, helo ops and standing around on the flat range. I feel as though I got my money's worth, as I really abused them. The only care I gave the boots was from the business end of a water hose. When I first examined them, I expected the sole to separate from the boot but it never did. I've read reviews from others who complain about separation, but mine held up well. Several of my buddies have them and no one has experienced a separation. Everyone loves these boots.
