Product Description

The Tibet GTX is built to handle virtually anything a hardcore backpacker or hunter can throw at a boot over hundreds of miles of rugged, off-trail terrain.  Handcrafted in Germany, the Tibet GTX  features premium nubuck leather uppers, a durably waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX lasted lining plus an injected PU midsole and a full-length stabilizer to provide the long-lasting underfoot support that’s critical when you’re carrying a 50+ lb pack. Add details such as a rugged VIBRAM  outsole, a LOWA C-4 tongue that's strategically padded and contoured to wrap the instep in comfort, a  special ankle flex design for easy walking, a no-slippage lacing system and a full-length rubber rand to protect against the gnarliest terrain, and it's easy to understand why the Tibet GTX has become the go-to mountain boot for backpackers and hunters alike.

For close to 90 years, LOWA boots have been acclaimed by climbers, mountaineers and hikers as the finest outdoor boots in the world. Every LOWA boot is handcrafted in Europe, where they incorporate the elements of thoughtful design, superb materials, clean manufacturing processes and fair labor standards. When you own a pair of LOWAs, you can be confident that you're wearing authentic outdoor footwear that "walks the talk" when it comes to quality, performance and sustainability.

    Size: 8.5 D(M) USColor: Sepia/Black Verified Purchase
    Size: I bought these boots a half a size larger than what I normally wear; I did this based on reviews and a true dislike for returning things... While I am extremely happy with the boot and how it fits I can't help but wonder if my normal size would have fit fine.

    Observations - The boot is/has:

    a bit heavy; as expected considering its purpose.
    a bit hot in warm weather (High 70's up (°F)); also expected.
    well made.
    extremely comfortable.
    incredible support
    great traction
    great locking system for the laces

    Cannot comment on how they hold up in water; yet

    The guy in the outdoor store said: "Now try these". I did. Tried the indoor trail (rocks uphill, stairs down).
    Just felt right immediately. That was in 1997.
    Since then I've (ab-)used them in all kinds of situations.
    From hiking in an African desert to shoveling knee deep snow to daily use instead of the lousy work boots my then boss provided.
    Yes, they are pricey! (if I had looked at the tag I probably would not have tried them on).
    I have never regretted spending the money though.
    Have tried on others since but nothing comes close to putting on a new pair of Lowa boots.
    I get about 5- 5.5 years of thorough use out of them (despite my sloppy habits when it comes to proper maintenance).
    By then the soles have just about worn smooth and the rubber starts to disintegrate, still watertight though!
    My previous pair have been promoted to welding and cutting now.
    The only way I ever managed to mess up a pair of the original laces before the boots wore out.
    As you can tell, I love these boots.
    Quality through and through!
    Highly recommended

    I got these from Amazon based upon some recommendations from some other hikers. I didn't want to spend this much and was able to leverage a GC and an Amazon promotion to get them for <$200, but they would have been worth the full price.

    They are, hands down, the best boots I've ever owned. I have been breaking them in over the last few weeks and have been amazed at how they fit and wear. This is not what I would call a lightweight boot, but you hardly can tell that you are wearing them.

    I started wearing them a few hours a days around the house and then out on some short hikes to break them in. Absolutely no hotspots, rubs, etc.

    I wear a size 10.5M to 11M shoe/boot normally, and I purchased these in an 11. The fit is perfect. Perhaps a little extra room in the toe than typical, but that does leave room for a heavier sock if necessary.

    GTX bootie has been truly waterproof. I have worn them through some slop already and my feet stayed dry. The only thing I will say about the GTX is that it makes this a warm boot. Even though it isn't insulated, with the right sock(s), these boots would be adequate for all but the coldest of days.

    Size: 13 D(M) USColor: Sepia/Black Verified Purchase
    I was a bit reluctant to order these off of amazon due to size concerns. About a year ago I purchased a pair of Lowa Renagades (13) and they have always felt too small; I normally wear a size 13 in other brands. I ordered size 13 from Amazon and they fit perfectly, so they run true to size. The toe box is wider an are very comfortable. I may never wear my Renegades again :)

    Easily the best boot I've ever owned, a bit spendy, but sooo worth it. I use them to hunt pheasant, deer, and bear in pretty much any terrain and temperature available in southwestern pennsylvania. They are not insulated so I wear wool socks if it is going to be below 20°f. The only time my feet got cold was a few weeks ago, and the temperature was below 0, I think this could have easily been solved with a second pair of socks. They are now 2 years old with no noticeable signs of wear (I only wear them for hunting or hiking maybe 40 times a year). I truly believe these boots will last me 10-15 years, which makes them quite cost effective really. If you have friends like mine, and witness them spending 200 ish bucks on boots every other year, sometimes more due to leaks and such, I think you would agree...money well spent

    These Lowas are real quality. Wow. i love them. very sturdy and well made boot. Just what i was looking for, however, there is almost no arch support, so if you have high arches like me, you will need some good inserts. Don't buy cheap inserts. spend the money for Super Feet. I use the green ones and they really work great. Turns a really nice boot into a wonderful boot. These are so nice, one day id love to get the leather lined version whenever these wear out. Those would also be super nice i can imagine.

    Love these boots. I've had them about a week and have been breaking them in.

    They are a snug boot which is the idea. I bought a size 12 which is my normal shoe size. When I got them I thought they were pretty tight.

    Before I sent them back I ordered the 12.5 just to be sure. I still wasn't sure so I asked questions and decided to keep the 12. I AM SO GLAD I KEPT THE 12 and not the 12.5.

    I am really looking forward to hiking with these.

    Worth every penny.

    I took my first hike with these boots and they are comfortable out of the box. They are heavy and not too flexible, but that is what they are for - heavy duty backpacking. As far as fit I sometimes wear a size 9 and sometimes a 9.5 shoe, depending on the shoe. I ordered both a 9 and a 9.5 from amazon. The 9 was too small. The 9.5 fit perfectly. I am sending the 9 back to Amazon.
    Overall very pleased.
