I tried to return them to amazon but I couldn't do it through their automated return system. I contacted the manufacturer. They wanted me to ship the boots to them on my dime and wait while they evaluated the boots, they said based on their evaluation they would replace them or give me a discount on a new pair. I contacted amazon again and they agreed to send me a new pair of boots. Thanks Amazon! Five star review for amazon, 2 for the boots. I'll update with how the new pair lasts.
Then I bought these GTX's.....they seem to be made well so far.....as far as materials and build. But as a general purpose light hiking boot? Not even close to my old pair. I have already lost two toe nails since Feb. 2015 on light to medium level trails on the same foot......not acceptable. That tells me Lowa is not consistent in their quality from style to style and that their lasts.....wherever they are made.....aren't the same.
Sadly, I feel I wasted my money, and am inclined not to use these to anywhere the same degree. As of this writing, I probably will not buy another Lowa since they seem to be inconsistent in their quality from my experience......I want my old style to come back....screw the GTX's!
The craftsmanship is outstanding, the materials are outstanding. I'm very happy that there was large selection of colors for this model.
Amazon delivery was on time.
The downside to this is the insoles. I wore them around the house for a couple of hours and I began to feel the edges of the insoles. They are not a good fit nor are they well made. It seems Lowa expects users to toss the insoles and replace them with aftermarket insoles.
I wish I had known that the insoles on this boot were poorly made and fit. Otherwise I would have rated 5 star.
UPDATE- 10 Months later
Doing day hikes, not rock scrambling, not trekking through snow, not leavings in front of fire to dry... Rubber started separating from leather in front of boot on top. both boots around the entire toe box. Unacceptable in my mind for $200+ boots. Wrote to lowa and their customer server had me ship me the boots and they reviewed and shipped me back a new pair in 2 weeks or less. New boot look and feel great and again no break in. Wonder how long these boots will hold up. Buy a pair of boot with a rubber toe guard in the front like most hiking boot have and this will avoid separation problems. Hopefully new pair holds up better but based on the other reviews I dont have high hopes.
On both shoes, the sole has worn through at the heel. When I look closely I see that the sole material is extremely thin (it doesn't appear that way from the outside, but the actual rubber is formed over an inner material, with the rubber being very thin). When I wrote to Lowa (with pictures), they responded that the boots are out of warranty and that even if they were in warranty the way that I walked would have taken them out of warranty. What?
My previous boots were from Danner. I was easily getting 2-3 times longer wear (with the same use and my same feet) with Danner.
I will not buy Lowa again.
