Bought these to replace a 10 year old pair of similar Lowa boots that decided to finally blow out around the rubber seams. I spent time in those both hiking, working and playing in the snow.
The new pair need a bit of breaking in, but seem to be doing so. The fit is nice and supportive and should be good for my hot/dry weather light backpacking and hiking needs. A gusseted tongue would have been nice, but it stays in place without a problem. Pleased with my purchase and hope they become as comfortable as my old pair.

My guy is very picky when it comes to footwear and once he finds something he likes... he tends to wear those shoes until they are falling apart. This wasn't quite the case yet with his current boots, though they were looking pretty beat after hiking rainforests in Australia, rivers and Angel's Landing in Zion... you get the picture. I'm happy to say that he finds the new Lowa boots are comfortable and look good too. He's only worn them around the house so we have yet to hit the dirt. The only thing I wish they had is a gusseted tongue, other than that they seem to be sturdy, light weight and quite stylish for a hiking boot. I would recommend this boot and the appear to run true to size.

stable and grippy on wet dirt on first use. tounge should be a bit longer and is not attached to upper at sides, but this might aid in ventilation for summer hiking. comfortable enough and gives a feeling that you could tackle any terrain. prettty light but the monowrap gives a secure feeling and I wouldn't hesitate to use these for light load backpacking. the stock footbed is cheap and gives no arch support.
