I have the LOWA Toro shoes in the same size 12 and they fit perfectly. These are very small.
They also seem to have a thin footbed lining.
I have worn many LOWA shoes in the past and these just do not feel like LOWA's.

A very well made boot, need to order size of size and 1/2 larger to get correct fit. I had to return them because of the flat heel, which is my fault and I should have looked at the pictures more carefully. Joe

I was excited about this shoe -- quality brand, good price and appeared to be well made. Good padding in insole and tongue. Unfortunately, it runs very small and narrow. I bought one size larger than my normal size, and it was still tight. Also, sides of shoe are cut low, not providing as much support as other brands.

Extremely solid trail shoe. I wear these when hiking twelve miles up and down Colorado mountains and at the gym. After wearing for two weeks, I bought two more pair so I have a two year supply. Ordered 10.5 after reading other reviews and the fit was right on. A 10 in Lowa normally fits me perfectly. Good looking shoe also.

Just received the boots today & LOVE them. Was very nervous about the size & laces due to other reviews. I have shoes in my closet 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 so I ordered the 9. PERFECT fit. I have a relatively wide foot - definitely not narrow and lots of room, but not loose. Also, I was nervous about the calves. Again, I consider my calves average --- not heavy, but not skinny. Plenty of room for lacing & straight leg jeans. Laces took a few minutes to do - but, I consider myself somewhat lacing - challenged and did not mind it. Real laces probably do look better than having the zipper on the side - just be patient! Boots are well made and gorgeous! Hubby said they looked great. Am anxious for winter to try them out!

This is a sturdy shoe with great comfort. It has ample toe room & width across the ball of the foot. I also appreciate the interior padding for a soft walk & waterproof too! I'm not crazy about the dark grey color, but it will do for not showing wear/tear.
