Summary

I use these for climbing 14ers in Colorado. Highly recommend for a variety of situations. These guys will get you up and down the mountain without ever losing traction or giving blisters...even straight out of the box.

Pros

  • Sturdy
  • Innovative climate control
  • Great lacing system
  • Keeps feet dry
  • Protective rubber rand

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Too much blue?? Oh well
  • Can get a little hot on summer days laced all the way up

I absolutely love this boot. I spent roughly an afternoon breaking these bad boys in and that was probably excessive. Out of the box they were very flexible and easy to work with.

For how durable and tough these guys are they are extremely light and easy to move in. The week I got these I immediately took them on a two-day hiking trip up two 14ers in Colorado. Since then I have done four more and these boots show no signs of wear or tear.

I simply just wash them off or run through a stream and they are good to go. I have also stood in streams to assist people with getting across and have never felt a drop of water touch my feet. If you are willing and able to spend the money it is well worth it.

I can't say how these will perform in the long run, but they have handled everything I have thrown at them so far and I am expecting these to last well into the future.

Another nice feature with the newest version is the ball bearing lacing system...it's technology like this along with a durable boot that stays fairly cool with proper lacing that I believe sets LOWA apart. I messed around with some other boots before these and just ended up taking them back because the rocks and terrain I was on was tearing them apart.

When you are ready for a solid boot that can handle it all grab a pair of these.
