Happy so far

Obviously with boots like these, it will take some time to really form an opinion. However, out of the box the quality of construction is obvious. Rock solid lacing system, fantastic ankle support while allowing for relatively free movement. Feels great with a load in my pack and on steep ground. Sticky sole. Perfect fit with my standard size running shoes. Happy so far

Lowa z6 gtx

Have wanted these boots for ages, took advantage of the 100 years of lowa sale. Glad i di they are well supported, Comfiest boots I've owned.looking forward to seeing how they go over time!

Fantastic Boots

Recently upgraded from the Lowa Renegade GTXs as i wore them out after about 6 years. Decided on the Lowa Tibets as their replacement as i wanted to do some more technical and longer trails. Boy am i glad i did, they are great fitting boots even for me with size 16 wide feet. They fit comfortably, have no break in period and appear to be very sturdy. Done about 5 15km+ hikes with them so far and they have perform magnificently with steep terrain, wet surfaces and gravel.

I love the independent lacing system, allows me to set the bottom section to be perfect, then adjust the top section depending whether i am ascending or descending. The only downside i have encountered is the price but upon wearing them, that worry has disappeared and i am extremely happy with them.

I would recommend them to anyone looking to do some heavy duty hiking, hunting or anything technical.

Extra Good Boots

These boots were a comfortable wear straight out of the box, zero break in time. I wore them in powdery snow in Colorado and walking the streets of San Francisco as well as on many plane trips. Superb quality and fit, even for my heels that have bone spurs. Lightweight compared to other hiking boots and stylish to boot!

Camino Evo GTX® Wide
Jack Couplos (Sydney, AU)
Comfortable and stable

Used these over snow, ice, hard dirt, mud and very rocky terrain for 180km over 16 days carrying a 10kg pack.
Didn’t skip a beat, no sore feet, very supportive.
When fitted correctly with good quality socks I think this boot is magnificent.

Best boots ever.

Just back from Norway. Didn’t know boots like this existed. Put them to the test hiking - they are light yet breathable and totally waterproof. The most comfortable yet sturdy shoe/boot I have tried.

Need the WIDE VERSION in Australia. - Lowa Z-8S GTX C

Walking the Camino de Santiago in 2024 - an 800 km trek over three months across northern Spain with a light back pack (<15kg). Not sponsored, paid full retail. Footwear will make or break my pilgrimage, due to arthritic ankle and very broad feet. Got a 2nd mortgage and bought BOTH a pair of Lowa Tibet Wides AND (a few months later) a pair of Lowa Z-8S GTX C's to ensure I take the best boot on Camino.

Summary - Truly splitting hairs, but will take the Z-8s on Camino. If I was carrying a heavier pack, definitely the Tibet Wides. Slight weight advantage to Z-8 and they are more flexible - makes the Z-8s slightly more comfortable due to the lighter pack weights involved. However the Z-8s are just b-a-r-e-l-y wide enough to fit my foot. If your pack weighs over 15 kg - use the Tibet Wides.

Positives - Z-8s are extremely comfortable - have been walking 20 - 25km training walks with a 11kg pack and either boot handles it perfectly. I take the same size boot (13 UK) in both the Z-8S & Tibet Wide. My Z-8s are 300 grams lighter per boot than my Tibet Wides. BOTH provide superb support for my arthritic ankle. Extremely high quality materials and construction. Z-8s is more flexible and was wore-in within a couple of days use. The closed loop lacing system is awesome once you've used it a few times. Fully waterproof & breathes very well. Nice & flexible for driving. Ideal for fishing, stalking, 4WDing, or general use in the bush. Can walk very quietly in the Z-8s when needed (ie for stalking). Feel I could run in the Z-8s while I could not with the Tibet Wide. Highly, highly recommend either boot. The Tibet Wide is better when carrying a heavier pack.

4 stars not 5 - only because not quite wide enough. It's their ONLY Bad Point - not quite wide enough for a broad Aussie foot. Inner soles are pretty firm, and if I changed them for an after market soft one there is not enough room in the boot for my big, broad foot. However, once you know what size Lowa you take, order from elsewhere if Lowa Australia doesn't bring the Z-8s WIDE version into Australia.

The most comfortable boots I've worn

These truely are excellent boots. Light, comfortable, good support and enough ridgidity in the sole to be safe. They are completely water proof and will be my "go to" boots on most hunts ( my Tibets are very jealous).
