Lowa makes the best boots that are widely available in the US. I hope STP can offer more of them. This boot is top of the line. And has plenty of toe room and offers a good snug fit through the arch and heel. The leather lining is nice and the sole is good on a wide range of surfaces, one of th... Read More
Reviewed by Chris from bethesda on Thursday, November 13, 2014If you want good hiking boots, pay the extra and buy from the Germans or Italians. They are simply far superior to the cheaper, albeit serviceable Asian products. These Lowas are clunky of course, but they are extremely comfortable and durable, at least based on my two outings wearing them.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Denny from Michigan on Wednesday, November 12, 2014Almost too nice to wear in the dirt
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Aaron the Biologist from Colorado on Sunday, October 12, 2014Great boots made of high quality materials. I expect these boots to last many a mile.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Firebear from Nevada on Monday, September 29, 2014I received these boot in the mail and I went on a fire after only wearing them for 2 days (16) at work. My feet felt great after hiking on them all day. I will recommend to anyone that asks me about a good boot to where on a fire line.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by smokykoko from Harrisburg, PA on Thursday, September 18, 2014I take a size 12 1/2 and Lowa is one of the few that make them although I think they are phazing the size out. This boot is well made with a wide toe box and no goretex. One the heavy side at 4 1/4 lbs. I am just starting to break them in so no real good input there.
Question & Answer
I have never used Crampons. Lowa has great customer service and I'm sure if you email them, they will get back to you.
These would probably classify as B0 boots which are technically too flexible for crampons but I guess some people try it anyway. Lowa Tibet, Baffin Pro or Ticam would be B1 type, compatible with flexible crampons.
My 10 pt crampons would not fit. Light duty 4-6 pt ones might. These are hiking boots and not suitable for mountaineering or ice climbing!
I don't really know. I never have used crampons. They seem purity heavy duty boots.
I do believe they run true to size. I have mine for nearly a month now and I've been wearing them with a medium thickness socks and it's perfect. I've mentioned in my review that it has enough room in the toe box that even for I guy like myself that typically buys EE shoes, the regular size is just fine. It's a nice pair of boots and I haven't found another site/store that sells them cheaper than Sierra Trading Post.
These boots have a wide toe box and seem just a tad on the large side if anything, I ordered USA 10 1/2 I am happy so far with the size. some times the Euro conversions don't seem right. order your correct size with these boots.
1/2 size to big. Sorry I didn't respond sooner
“Question “Are the sizes English or American? I believe the sizes on the boots themselves are English but what are the sizes you are showing you have? Thanks””
The sizes shown are US Men's sizes.
