Lowa Munro

Quite a broad boot so once the padding had worn in a little they were actually a bit big. This didn’t seem to affect comfort, though. Offered excellent lateral support on steep ground, yet still flexed nicely when walking on easier trails. A boot that breathed easily.

Verdict: A well-made mountain walking boot that’s perhaps a little heavy and clumsy for really easy going, but otherwise is hard to fault. Best for broader feet.
