Great boots for big distance, moderate loads

Reviewed by Ebars from NH on Saturday, June 4, 2016
I'm sold on non-goretex boots. These fit very well and the leather lining molds to your foot. They are nubuck, not suede as another reviewer stated. This is a big difference as nubuck is full grain leather, suede is splIt. Properly treated they are waterproof to a certain extent. The gusset ends at the ankle flex point to increase ventilation, so below there I can submerge them for short periods of time with no problems.

The boots have a stable, fairly thick sole but are flexible. Good room in the toe box. The 2.4+mm leather is strong without being too stiff. As all Lowas, the lacing system just works and provides a nice ankle wrap, even for my small ankles and narrow heel. They lock in well.

I wear an 11 in boots, I got 11s, great fit. Not a lot of break in needed in my opinion.
