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.

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.
great locking system for the laces
Cannot comment on how they hold up in water; yet
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!
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.
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.
Overall very pleased.

The boots fit fine, good and solid, but the outsole will delaminate within 2 years or so. You can repair them with shoo goo, but it's only a temporary fix. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Hikerman
