Size and fit
The Lowa Tibet LL is a boot catered to male and female backpackers. It fairly runs true to size. It is offered from narrow to wide widths, with the men’s version until 4E - extra wide. The 2-zone lacing and I-Lock (locking cam hooks) allow varying tensions on the forefoot and the shaft. These features, together with the FlexFit, render an improved overall fit.
The crampon-ready Vibram Masai provides traction on trails. It has a self-cleaning tread with large studs to assist in ascents and descents. A Climbing Zone is featured at the toe section for increased uphill sensitivity. With a cemented construction, the sole of this backpacking boot can be replaced (resoled) at a cost.
The Lowa Tibet LL employs the breathable Climate Control Footbed. It is placed above the shock absorbent DuraPU midsole equipped with Supination Pronation Support (SPS) system. This technology includes a TPU insert which encourages a more natural stride. Additionally, a full-length hard shank stabilizes and grants underfoot support.
This leather lined mid-cut backpacking boot is constructed with minimal seams. It features nubuck leather for its upper which gives it a textured finish. The natural advantages of these materials include water-resistance and resilience. A high wall rubber rand surrounds the boot for protection and added durability.
The Tibet LL has the FlexFit technology (includes Flex Zone near the ankle and Lace Loop) which promotes free movement of the ankles. The anatomical C4 tongue with X-lacing enables a comfortable flex while keeping the tongue in place through the use of a stud. Its open and closed hooks, plus roller eyelets, enable quicker closure.
- The Lowa Tibet LL is compatible with strap-on crampons.
- The waterproof counterpart of this model is the Lowa Tibet GTX.
