Not for Rugged Terrain
Reviewer: MWyse | Tucson, AZ
I like my Lowa Zephyr boots, which I've worn few years before buying the Tempest GTX. I used them for about a dozen light hikes around Tucson, AZ alternating with my Zephyrs for backpacks and where I needed more ankle support. I was sitting soaking my feet in Bright Angel Creek at the Phantom Ranch when I notice at a section of my sole was missing and ripped and looking at another 10 miles & 5000 feet back to rim of the Grand Canyon. Although the boots look and feel great, the quality control was very poor on these boots and I would not buy them again or recommended them for rugged terrain.
Grippy & Light on the Trail
Reviewer: Christi | Georgia
Happy with these trail shoes! Use the size chart--I sized up a 1/2 size & they're perfect. The colors are fun & bright. The low drop from heel to toe was important to me because I've turned my ankle a few times...these shoes are technical & super grippy on the trail with above average traction. I plan to train & race in these and have another trail shoe for nasty conditions, as well as road shoe for treadmill/path running. I do think these shoes will hold up well to whatever I throw at em ...and after an hour run on some really techy trails with roots, rocks, elevation changes, my legs & feet were not too beat up! I recommend with 5 stars!!!
Womens brooks are great!

Very comfortable. Most comfortable shoe from the second I put it in. Great cushioning.
Best boot I have
Reviewer: John | Pleasanton
Other team members of mine bought these boots months ago. I got tired of hearing them brag on them so I bought some. Thank goodness my team shamed me into it. These are the best boots I have ever owned and I own a lot. Great support, comfort, and quality. Hint: measure your foot with a ruler. Round up a half inch. Perfect fit.

I get lots of complements about how they look and they feel good when your running. Good for distance runners.
Reviewer: Boatermom | Solomons
Light weight, lots of toe room. I use custom arch supports and there is plenty of room for them. The high top does not provide the ankle support I like because it is not stiff enough. I bought a 1/2 size larger than I usually buy. I wear these to work, not for hiking
Lowa Zephyr GTX Mid = awesome boot!
Reviewer: Bob Terwiliger | OCONUS
I have worn many boots over the years and know quality when I see it. These Lowa Zephyr GTX are very comfortable, light weight and breathe very well. They are comfortable right out of the box, although I did add some moldable footbeds to provide more arch support. These boots provide ankle stability yet are lightweight, almost like a sneaker. The are good for walking, hiking and running. I would recommend these to any & all. I plan on buying another pair to have on hand when these finally wear out.

Love t. Has the same light, sturdy, and good fit and soles. All around good shoe. Makes your foot bigger and takes a little getting used to. But a comfortable, yet sturdy shoe for every day wear, to hiking. Includes your fabulous non-slip soles that is your signature! Thanks!

received it fast. excellent service. couldn't be happier with the pack. quality construction and well thought out design. holds way more than it looks like it would. interior storage pockets are great. new bladder style is way better than most. easy to fill and comfortable on the back. overall a very intelligent designed backpack. everything works like it should.
