User Review: Lowa Men's Tibet GTX
Materials: All Leather/Gore-Tex
Use: Rough Trail with Heavy Packs
Break-in Period: Almost out of the box - surprising for their stiffness.
Weight: 4 lb. 6 oz (size 11 Medium)
Price Paid: $215/$270
To date I have put roughly 200 miles on these boots from moderate trail hikes to bushwacking/mountain climbing in British Columbia and they have performed superbly. I have a wide, lower volume forefoot and a narrow heel and they fit great (the European lasts are reputed to fit a wider variety of feet than the U.S. lasts tend to).
The downside is that they are a stiff boot and a bit on the heavy side (4 lb. 6 oz./pr in size 11M) due to their contruction, but for carrying a heavy pack in rough terrain/off-trail travel they are excellent. As such, some folks might not care for them as an all around boot.
I liked them well enough that I bought a second pair just in case Lowa changes/discontinues the model.
