These shoes are made for walking!

The support and foot stabilizing frame is great. The single-pull speed lacing helps me get where I'm going faster. At 72 with rods in my back and a hip replacement, I need them to be easy to get on and fasten in addition to the stability and good arch support Lowa builds into their shoes. I have another pair of lo-cut Lowa hiking shoes in an 8.5, but they are about a half size smaller and I have to wear thin socks. Reviewers said these were a half to whole size large in their regular size, so I bought the 8.5 and these fit fine. I usually wear a 9 or 9.5 in other brands of walking/running shoes.
