What the Taurus Pro GTX Mid brings to the hiker’s table
Much like most waterproof hiking boots, the Taurus Pro GTX Mid offers over-the-ankle protection against wet stuff with extra heel and ankle support to match. The featured Lowa boot, however, has other advantageous cards up its sleeve. What we mean are the following:
- Its collar is engineered at an angle that promotes ankle mobility. This sort of construction also makes downhill negotiations comfy and less tiring.
- The boot provides double the amount of stability and support underfoot. This means that you will get a secure ride on uneven terrain in it, whether you have wobbly heals or weak arches.
- With its multi-directional lugs having a depth of 5 mm, you are guaranteed sufficient purchase on loam soil, mud, and scree.
Alternatives to the Lowa Taurus Pro GTX Mid
Lowa Renegade GTX Mid. If you need a bit more brawn in your step, the Renegade GTX Mid has to be on your radar. Although more expensive than the Taurus Pro GTX Mid (by approximately $60), the Renegade justifies its asking price with more protection underfoot and high-end surface traction courtesy of Vibram.
Lowa Ranger III GTX. Will you be carrying a heavier pack on your next extended adventure? If so, the Ranger III GTX is for you. As a backpacking boot, this Lowa offering will make off-trail traversals seem like you are walking on level ground. It is without a doubt stiffer (all over) than the Taurus Pro GTX Mid, but with this upped rigidity comes a dramatic increase in protection and support.
