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!

Finally wore em out

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.

Worn for years

I've had these for years and have hiked all over, steep, rocky, wet. In fact, I'm starting to think about my replacement pair, they've been stitched up once and the soles are getting thin. Thankfully, it appears they haven't changed anything. As to waterproofness, they have gotten wet a couple of times in extended wet conditions, but usually, they are fine. Walking through little creeks is not a problem. It is such a hassle having narrow feet, it is great to find a boot that is so comfortable on the trail all day long.

Backpacker Got It Right

I've been wearing my first pair of these for only a few days. The most helpful comment I can offer to prospective buyers is that I think they run a tad small. I wear size 10.5 in some brands (like Vasque) and 11 in others (like Merrill). I ordered the Lowa Tempest Lo in size 11 and they are barely long enough. I also have narrow feet and these shoes are snug enough for me, even with lighter hiking socks than I normally use. Backpacker Mag strongly recommended these shoes with this caveat: Best for low volume feet and consider order 1/2 size larger than normal. I think that's correct.

Possibly the best SHOE Ive ever owned

These things are amazing. I got them on a friend's recommendation and I am GLAD I did! The first thing I noticed when I recieved the box was how light they are..It felt like there was nothing in the box! I've now been wearing them for a couple of weeks and I can honestly say they are the best combat boots I've tried in my 6+ years in the military, and they may very well be the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. They appear durable, although I wouldn't want to put them through some of the stuff I used to do (climbing mountains, long patrols with rucks, etc). All in all, these are worth every penny. GET THEM.
