User Review: Lowa Men's Tibet Pro GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $300
The most comfortable boot you will ever wear. Great fit, waterproof, and super durable.
I have been wearing Lowa shoes for over 10 years. I am on my second pair of Tibet Pro GTXs, but I still wear my first pair for day-to-day activity and save my new pair for bigger excursions.
If you have never worn a pair of Lowa boots then you have been missing the most comfortable hiking boot on the market. My Lowas always seem to fit my foot like a glove, one of the first things I noticed about the shoe. I use my Tibets for both backpacking and hiking.
I started out with the Renegade GTX Mid but have since just stuck with the Tibet. Even though the Tibet is a heavier boot, I prefer it over the Renegade as much of the trails I hike are heavy rooted and rocky. I like the thicker sole and support offered by the Tibet even on a light hike. Don't get me wrong the Renegade is a great boot and I have been toying with the idea of getting another pair :-)
The soles have held up well in my Tibets and do a good job of keeping my feet where I want them to be in wet conditions, which is where I am most of the time. My first Tibets are on their 7th year and even though I cracked the leather by allowing them to dry in the sun one too many times they still do a nice job of keeping my feet dry in basic stream crossings.
Wonderful boot in my opinion. You owe it to your feet to give them a try.
