Simon Gibson - Lowa Tibet Pro GTX


"A feature I really liked were the great brakes, the undercut heel front gives superb grip when coming down wet tussock slopes and steep country. The shock absorbing mid sole is made from polyurethane which provides cushioning."


LOWA Tibet Pro GTX - Great fitting boots

The LOWA Tibet Pro GTX is a rugged boot ideally suited for the roughest of New Zealand’s terrain and for carrying heavy pack weights. The WXL stands for extra wide which is important in NZ where we tend to have wide feet. GTX denotes that the boots are Gore-Tex lined using Lowa’s patented system. This boot is packed with innovation and features all designed to give the wearer a comfortable fit while providing good ankle support. The Tibet boot is fitted with a Vibram Masai sole which has an excellent aggressive self-cleaning tread pattern and is crampon compatible.

A feature I really liked were the great brakes, the undercut heel front gives superb grip when coming down wet tussock slopes and steep country. The shock absorbing mid sole is made from polyurethane which provides cushioning. When you eventually wear the sole out these boots can be re-soled by returning them to LOWA who will also replace the shock absorbing mid sole and rand.
