User Review: Lowa Men's Zephyr GTX Mid
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $250
Best boot ever made. I have bad feet, real bad, but these boots are so comfortable they allow me to work 10 hours a day standing.
- Comfort like no other
- Looks great
- Rubber soles make no sound when walking
- No shoelace eyelets on top of foot making it more comfortable
- If shoelaces break you can't get regular laces to work
- Fits a little tight unless you get a half size larger
- Goretex kind are hot
Telling you, if you like the look of this shoe but need somthing that is comfortable then don't worry, they are the most comfortable boot I ever had.
I have a tehered spinal cord that causes a lot of foot pain. I have tried at least 50 different brand of shoes over the past 20 years always looking for something to help my feet. I stand on concrete 10 hours a day and my left ankle is crooked, normaly go through 3 pair of boots a year due to the crooked ankle causeing excess wear to the side of left boot.
I have had my Lowas for about 8 months now and they are holding up great, and the rubber that comes up the side of my shoe helps to keep my ankle straight so the shoe doesn't wear out as fast. I just got my 2nd pair of the desert Lowas, first pair were the green GTX. The green ones are a little warm for summer so will wear the desert pair in the heat.
They fit like a sock, my feet actualy feel better with them on rather than off. I did get a size larger so I can add extra shoe soles or inserts to the boot, so i don't know just how comfortable the shoe sole that comes with the boot is cause I have an extra gel soul on top of that.
Normally whatever I get iI buy a size and half larger and put 3 to 4 shoe inserts in each shoe, these are comfortable enough that I got a smaller size and use only 1 extra shoe sole.
Can't say enough good things about this boot. It laces well, but the laces are small and so are the eyelets they go through so I dont think regular laces will fit if these break. I haven't been in much water with my Gortex pair other than walking accross parking lot in rain, but my feet haven't gotten wet. They have great traction and are extremely quiet, if you run on pavement they make no noise at all.
