LOWA’s New Boots for 2015

LOWA has been around since 1923, so they know a little about making boots for outdoors enthusiasts like hunters, hikers, mountaineers, etc. They’re based in Germany, and all of their boots are made in Europe

I’ve had the pleasure of wearing a pair of LOWA Trekker boots in and out of the woods for a while now, and they’ve served me well. They fit well, are true to size, give me good support, wear well, and look good doing it. So while I was at the 2015 SHOT Show, I stopped by their booth to see what new stuff they were bringing out for 2015.

Here’s a quick rundown of LOWA’s latest:

LOWA INNOX GTX MID TF
