Who should buy Lowa Tibet GTX Hi
Users who prioritize protection and are willing to invest in a premium backpacking boot will find the Lowa Tibet GTX Hi an ideal option. It is recommended for:
- Wearers who need water protection
- Backpackers who need the durability of a leather boot
Aggressively designed outsole
The Lowa Tibet GTX Hi gives backpackers the amount of traction they need over tricky surfaces with the Vibram Masai outsole.
Its aggressively shaped, self-cleaning lugs offer multi-directional grip. Over at the outsole’s forefoot region is the Climbing Zone. This feature provides a level of assistance when negotiating steep ascents.
Lowa Tibet GTX Hi's stable platform
Simultaneously offering shock absorption, stability, and ground protection is the Tibet GTX Hi’s DuraPU midsole. It is engineered with the SPS technology which sees TPU inserts embedded in the midsole unit for overpronation and supination prevention.
Support and extra cushioning underfoot come by means of the boot’s Climate Control Footbed. This removable insole, which sits atop a lasting board with a cemented sole, may be trimmed to the user’s desired fit.
Upper made to last
Nubuck leather is the primary covering of the Lowa Tibet GTX Hi. Its base is protected from abrasions and scuffs with a full-on rubber rand. Its main bootie is imbued with a Gore-Tex membrane, offering ample breathability on the inside and water protection on the outside.
Lowa Tibet GTX Hi's precise lockdown
On the foot-lockdown front, the Tibet GTX Hi makes use of synthetic laces and metallic hooks and loops. Two of the closed loops (around the instep) have ball bearings, allowing wearers to lace up with relative ease. There is also a stud on the C4 tongue which distributes lace pressure evenly across the foot.
