    I should have ordered these at least a half size larger but there was no option so I took a chance. I will wear thin socks and hope they stretch a little as I wear them. I like the shoes otherwise.

    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.

    these boots are sick!! the comfort & colorway/ways are awesome! i have these & the royal blue pair too. only drawback is they run very small!! if you are lucky enough to get a pair, make sure you get about a size bigger than your normal size!!! i wear a 11.5 & brought an 11.5 in these & my feet pleaded with me to get a bigger size, i couldnt wear them for more than a couple hours before either having to take them off or untying the laces to relieve my feet. i was lucky to be able to exchange them for a 12.5 & they fit perfectly without any issues!

    I find these are not true to size. The 7.5 is half an inch longer than my other shoes of the same size. I will try a 7 and hope they are better.

    they do run small. bought a 12 returned for a 13. Usually wear 12-12.5's. Have worn a few times to break in. A little stiff but can tell they'll be good. I' d recommend for sure, but keep in mind the sizing.

    I'm sad to be writing a negative review. I've had other Lowa boots and loved them. The soles are completely ridged to the point of making these boots slippery. I bought my regular size 10.5. This is always hard to find so I was excited. The boots are definitely too big even with a pair of midweight hiking socks on. Probably at least 1/2 size too big

    Footbeds are not very comfortable. I'm going to try to make the best of them and double up socks the next time I got out hiking. Hopefully no blisters will results. Super disappointed!

    I bought these boots because I had previously owned a pair of Lowa Renegades and was impressed with the comfort and quality from the very first day I wore them. These Lowa Khumbu II boots are quite a bit stiff and take time getting used to them. They are true to size. The button on the tongue is great for keeping the tension where you want it. If you're not used to this tall of a boot, you will feel clunky. Nice dip in the back for going down steep hills. I give them 4 stars because of how stiff they are (I've been wearing them for 2 weeks straight out in steep hill country), and I don't feel you should have to "break in" a good pair of boots. That will keep me from ordering this particular style again.

    I read that the shoes ran a half size small. The 8s I ordered proved too big and I had to return them for my normal 7.5s. My only issue is the toe box is slightly tight and it could use a little more padding on the tongue. Otherwise shoe is well built, looks sharp, and has great traction. Very satisfied but not blown away.

    I love Lowa shoes and boots, so this shoe was a major let down. It's WAY smaller than the marked size. I normally wear a 9 1/2, but have ordered several size 10s in Lowa shoes, which seems to work out. I ordered a size 10 here too, and they were at least a full size small. I decided not to guess exactly how small these shoes run, so I returned them.

    I have a hard time finding shoes to fit my feet. Lowa and keen are the only ones that really work with my feet, slightly wider than the norm, but not hobbit feet. I stopped buying keens because they have been falling apart on me.

    There's a bit of a breaking in period. I love the traction of the sole. I stick to things. I don't worry at all about slipping.

    I purchased these shoes for an upcoming trip overseas. I feel they will both look great and cushion my feet for all the walking we are planning on doing. Fit is true to size, and these are so supportive. I've not ever had a more comfortable pair of walking shoes!

    Fit is excellent and accurate. Well made shoe and waterproof…ok, what else are you looking for? Not as flashy as some of the newer running shoes, more of a classic design trail shoe, but great for the street as well.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by CR Walker from Cedar Rapids, IA on Monday, March 23, 2015
    I thought these shoes would be great but they are on the stiff side across the ball of the foot . They are not as deep as some of the other Lowa's I have. That made the orthotics tight. They may have been okay once broken I but I returned them. Length and width good.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sheep in need of decent shoes from Florida on Saturday, March 21, 2015
    These shoes are a bit snug. Other people say to order a size larger. I think you should order about a half size larger and forget the whole thing if you have wide feet. I ordered a size 13-M. Measuring my foot will show that I take a 13-B width. This size 13 could stand to be 1/2 size longer and the "M" width is actually a decent "B" width. I'm satisfied and will keep the shoes but they fit like a glove.

    While the Lowa Cevedale, cannot compare to my first true (boot) love, my beautiful (wood mid-soled) Galibier Super Guide's, the Cevedale is easily the best boot I've spent meaningful time with since my Asolo Yukon's were chewed, bitten and torn apart by some hungry backcountry critter. Ever since my Yukon's died, I have engaged in a long search for a faithful (boot) companion. In that quest, I have had many boot affairs and even a few romantic dalliances with the usual suspects, Scarpa(s), Asolo(s), LaSportiva(s) and most recently Salewa. But I never truly fell in love with any of these Italian movie stars. For some unknown reason, I never considered even trying on a pair of Lowa boots. I guess I was convinced that the Italian last fit my narrow, high arch, low volume feet best. Big mistake. In my experience, the fit, quality and construction of Lowa boots is the highest of any non-custom made boots currently on the market. The Cevedale are not hiking boots and they are not per say climbing boots. The Cevedale are intended to be worn doing what we used to call "mountaineering". The Cevedale seem to come to life when I start off trail scrambling on steep talus and rocks. I use the Cevedale for Colorado 14er "peak bagging" and general (4 season hiking around the mountains) mountaineering use in New Mexico and Colorado. Surprisingly, the Cevedale only took two trips to break in and I never got any blisters. The Cevedale are taller in the cuff than typical trail hiking boots, but the tongue never caused discomfort if the laces were properly tensioned. The Cevedale work well with my adjustable Black Diamond crampons and the sole is stiff enough to edge on (non-technical) holds typically encountered in the mountains. I haven't worn the Cevedale's in extreme cold, but I have worn them comfortably in the -10 degree range with regular gaiters. The most impressive and truly useful design feature of the Cevedale is the lacing system. The Cevedale lacing system is very well designed and allows the boot to be adjusted in three "sections" (forefoot, Instep and ankle) thereby isolating tension from one "section" affecting the desired tension in the other sections of the boot. Lacing the Cevedale takes some time and effort to get the system dialed, but the effort is rewarded with all day comfort. The Gore Tex liner keeps out the elements and does a good job of wicking moisture. Lowa sizing is based on the European system and it is worth checking the conversion tables if you are not familiar with European sizing. Last but not least, I wasn't very excited about the bright blue color, but the STP price is too incredible to pass up. I am glad I didn't make my boot choice based on color. I highly, highly recommend the Lowa Cevedale.

    Love the fact that this boot has a large enough toe box to accommodate my bunions & toes! Not clumsy at all and very stylish looking and warm. I usually wear a size 81/2 to a 9 depending on the type of shoe, so after reading the reviews that indicated that the shoe runs a bit big, I ordered the 81/2 and I'm very satisfied.

    Snowbank and cold weather worthy boots. Very comfortable for walking through snow, slush. Order your usual size if you wish to wear thicker socks, but you won't need them since these boots are so well insulated. I didn't find laces an issue and I prefer them actually as this allows for more customization for various situations. Suggest that you pre-spray with silicone to keep the suede protected if you need to deal with salted streets. These boots seem low maintenance and will just need minimal suede care.

    I bought a pair of these about a month age. Haven't hiked in them yet, but for day to day wear they are perfect. I have no doubts that they are good for hiking as well, though I can't specifically comment on that yet. I like them so much that I have already bought another pair.

    Pay attention to the reviews, these definitely run small, mostly in the toe box. I wear an 11 in dress shoes (Allen Edmonds, Santoni) and most other shoes. Ordered an 11.5 and debated long and hard about returning them for a 12 because the toe box was a bit snug. I decided to stay with the 11.5 and they loosened up after the first day of wear. They are slightly warmer than mesh shoes, but not as warm as the waterproof shoes I have purchased. All and all a nice shoe, just run a bit small, more so in the toe box than length.

    Wore these for the first time yesterday on a couple mile jog. Comfortable shoe, right out the box. They run a tad big, but not enough to where I could have gone down a half size... All I all a nice shoe for the price I paid. Hoping they hold up.

    I really like these hiking boots, I have been searching for a pair that I like and these are both pleasing to the eye and comfortable. I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered half a size up. If you wear thin socks I would recommend sticking to your normal size, however if you wear thick wool socks like I do I would definitely order that half size up. I normally wear a 7.5 in Nike running shoes and ordered an 8 in these boots.
