So, so comfortable!!!
This was my first pair of Lowa shoes and I'm back looking for other styles. These felt great right out of the box with no break in period. I took it out for hikes and a backpacking trip. I had some sore muscles afterwards, but my feet felt like they never left home. I was really hesitant about steep hiking shoe costs prior to buying this pair (used sneakers for hiking), but now, I understand the value. Plus, this shoe REALLY is waterproof. My feet went into lots of water and as long as it wasn't too deep to tip over the top, my feet stayed nice and dry. My feet are narrow and between size 7 and 7.5. I bought a 7.5 to accommodate thick socks and downhill impact.

Still looking for the right boot
Bought this boot, a GoLite boot and a Merrill. The Merrill was the best of the lot, the GoLite was not even worth the trouble and the Lowa was good, but not great. I have slender feet, highish arches and always wear Spenco 3/4 arch supports in my boots. Lately I think I am developing a bone spur on the ball of my left foot that irritates a nerve going to my middle toe, so I am looking for a very cushy boot right now. The Lowa has plenty of room for my foot and the arch support. The toe box is nice and roomy and the boot has a nice balance of padding, support and flexibility on the upper. The lacing system keeps my foot snug without having to strangle it. The sole has a mildly sticky composition (I prefer a pretty sticky sole). The sole and upper are very flexible and bend at the ball of the foot. I preferred the stiffer sole on the Merrill boot that rolls the foot from ball to toe rather than bending. My biggest problem with this boot was that there was almost no cushion underfoot, which was not only uncomfortable (even on my good foot) but came too close to the line between "lightweight" and "flimsy." Overall I thought the boots were well-constructed, but my tryout rambles (about 3 miles) told me that even if both feet were fine, there just isn't enough there there.
