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

    This is the second pair of Baltoro's I have owned. I was very disappointed when I heard Lowa discontinued this model. best early season hunting boot I have ever owned. I put hundreds of miles on my first pair bow hunting elk in Western Montana and hunting sharptails and pheasants in Eastern Montana. Much better sweat control than goretex. Built in Germany with attention to detail lost on boots made in China.

    These boots are well built. I wear a 11m. I found these to be a little on the wide side. Almost sloppy. They are very heavy - built like a tank. They felt a bit clumsy on my feet. The right and left foot fit differently for me. Left boot was a good fit, but the right arch was too far forward. You probably want to go a half size lower than normal. They don't carry a 10.5 med, so I was out of a pr of boots.
    Bottom line: I would have kept them if they fit properly in both feet. They are nice boots

    These boots were comfortable right out of the box. They are true to size (size 12). Applied Nikwax to them and they seem to shed water great.

    Good Brand. All leather. A little narrow but I could loosen laces. Will take some break in but fine boots overall.

    The Baltoro belongs to the Lowa “Trekking” category, which means that the sole, while supportive and stiff relative to a day hiker, flexes more easily than a heavy duty backpacking boot (See Lowa Tibet, Baffin Pro, Ticam). Very similar to the “Trekker” in terms of fit, it allows a fairly snug instep and has a generous toe box. The main differences from the Trekker are that it is a one-piece upper (fewer seams), ½ inch shorter height-wise and the heel design is a little more bulbous. The nubuck is already pretty supple and shouldn’t take long to break in. A lot is said about the leather lining, but Lowa should really be commended for making a boot that is supportive yet flexible and adaptable to different foot shapes. I deal with a heel condition called Haglund’s - basically I have sensitive bony protrusions on the back of either heel - and Lowa is one of the very few manufacturers who makes heavy duty hiking boots that accommodate my heels.

    The only real problem I have had so far with the Baltoro is that it has been a challenge to get a perfect heel lock. Taping my heels seems to help quite a bit, but I am hopeful that over time the leather will conform a bit to my heels and allow an easier lock. Part of the problem may be that I am using orange Superfeet insoles, which lift the heel slightly and therefore change the heel fit. Lowa’s factory insoles are horrendous and have caused my feet problems in the past due to the almost complete lack of any padding.

    A couple other things I’ve noticed since receiving them: (1) The leather seems a little dry compared to other Lowa boots/shoes I have purchased in the past - I plan on applying some conditioner to them, and (2) On my pair some of the lacing brackets were not installed symmetrically, which leads me to believe these might actually be seconds. I guess you won’t know if this actually makes a difference unless you take them out for a hike. No complaints from me.

  • Question “Are these compatible with crampons?”
    Asked on 8/23/2014 2:18:38 PM by John from PA
    • 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.

    • Answer 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.

    • Answer 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!

  • Question “do these boots run true to size, large or small. ”
    Asked on 12/1/2013 1:02:26 PM by Ohio Jimbo from New Jersey
    • Answer 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.

    • Answer 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.
