This is as close to a bombproof boot as you can get. After four weeks of use, there was little wear to show for the sometimes scrappy terrain I tramped. Its price will give many pause for thought, but it is a serious boot for serious trips and if its...

Finding the perfect boot to do everything that our country has to offer in the hunting and tramping field is near on impossible, but after 3 months of solid use I think it is fair to say the new Lowa Z-8 can do 90% of it!

I have hunted in Lowa Tibet GTX boots for the past 12 months. They are good strong hunting boots that are not only comfortable but very hard wearing. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a serious hill and hunting boot. - George Whitelock, Ca...
