Lowa Kody GTX Mid
Use: day hikes
The third eyelet from the top ripped out after 15 months. I had Vasque boots before these and they lasted 10 times as long. I won't buy Lowa boots again.
Price Paid: $90
These boots are the best boots I have owned. Fit is just right and is very comfortable and mush support. They keep moisture out and have great tread.
Overall I have not owned a more comfortable hiking boot. Anyone who has a problem with these boots are either using them wrong or it is just a defect which happens with every product known to man.
You can not rate a product or a company with one defect it happens to every one.
