User Review: Lowa Men's Banff
Price Paid: $200
I’ve hiked long distances with Asolo Powermatic 400’s and Vasque Clarion GTX. Those are good boots, BUT, I was still coming back with blisters and sore feet after about 20-25 miles.
My hikes will normally include mountainous terrain of steep elevation gain and loss, scree, and dry creek rock hoping.
I decided to buy the Lowa Banff and what a difference they are. My normal size is 10 wide but I purchased 10.5 wide to give the extra toe room for the STEEP down hill so that I don’t end up with smashed toes and extreme discomfort like toe nail loss.
I spent a fair amount of time for break-in and I will never buy another type of boot, these things are just amazing, I love them! After hiking in them to Mount San Gorgonio and other equally great hikes, I have yet to get any blisters or foot discomfort, just awesome!!!
