Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by snowshoe happy from Neihart on Sunday, September 18, 2016I always go for heavy-duty, all leather, high-top boots and was ready to live long and prosper with Lowa, since they have a good reputation. I was disappointed first by the fact that after a year of using them pretty much weekly, and for a few overnight trips, they still aren't broken in. I've played with all sorts of different insoles, and still get foot pain after a long day. My second disappointment was that just about three days after the warranty expired a seam inside the boot came apart. I contacted Lowa, and they asked me for pictures of the boot and receipts, which I supplied, and I never heard another word from them. I sent a few follow-up emails, and got no reply. If they want to stick to their warranty period, that's fine, but at least say so! Now I wish the boots would wear out faster so I can get new ones that are more comfortable.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sarah from Utah on Wednesday, January 6, 2016I love these boots. I love:
1. The back Heel/Calf extra padding.
2. The lace pulley system.
3. The color/style.
4. Overall Fit to my foot.
5. The light weight.
I do NOT love
1. There is a double layer of material right under the Lowa metal stamp on the bottom lace where the tongue pushes down on the middle of my foot right above the toes. It is uncomfortable. Hopefully it will break it. I have high arches and I think my foot is just too tall right where the tongue is stitched to the boot. However, none of my other boots have done this. It is the same on both boots.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stephanie from FL on Thursday, December 17, 2015Although I haven't had the opportunity to wear them (I'm in Florida), I find them to be very comfortable. No complaints, and I would recommend these boots to anyone.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kristan from appalachian woods of PA on Tuesday, December 1, 2015Awesome heavy duty boot. Recently went to my hiking store for a new Gortex high hiker and I swear all the women's boots were making a fashion statement not a function statement. My first 2 hikes were with a light day pack; 11 mile and 7 miles. Both muddy, rainy, varied terrain and a miserable damp cold day. My feet were warm and toasty dry. I was surprised the first maiden voyage of 11 miles, my feet only had a slight ache which is uncommon for a stiff new boot~no rubbing~no blisters. I would buy another pair right now if my budget allowed. Definitely go with the 1/2 down.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sandy from Ca on Tuesday, December 1, 2015I bought these hiking shoes as a Christmas present for my daughter. I am a little worried about the fit. The website said they run large and to order 1/2 size smaller, but they seem small. We will see. Hope these last better than her last pair. We were hiking in Hawaii in the crater on Maui and her hiking boots just disintegrated. She walked for a while on the inner soles and then there was nothing left.

Generally an EU 38 is equivalent to a US 7.5. According to our fit models this item runs large, order 1/2 size smaller.
I normally wear a nine, and ordered a nine. They are roomy, but I like the extra room to accommodate insoles.
