“You can think of Lowa boots as the Land Rovers of the hiking world. They have plenty of style and a certain panache among the cognoscenti, a lengthy history (since 1923 in the case of Lowa) and a track record of the highest quality, matched by a price that is not inconsiderable. The new Locarno GTX Mid hiking boots by Lowa fit handily into that family tree. On a less than perfect spring day in New York, they proved to be made of the right stuff on a muddy trail with enough rocks and roots to simulate tougher days in the backcountry. Yet these boots don’t scream “Everest.” Instead, they seem ideal for the weekend warriors – myself included – who want great boots for great weekend getaways and ideally, a couple of weeks in the Alps or the Rockies or the Adirondacks later this year.”

“Having tested plenty of those types of shoes, it’s easy to see where that money goes. Lowa has created a very impressive set of footwear here, and the materials used in their construction are head and shoulder above others in this market space. The question is, will the more casual customer be able to tell the difference, and be willing to spend the extra cash? If they do, they’ll have a pair of boots that will last them for years, probably much longer than those made by other manufacturers. Hopefully, the casual hiker/traveler will see this and recognize the value being offered here.

If you’re already a fan of Lowa – or know the value of spending a bit of extra money for great boots – you won’t be disappointed with what the Locarno GTX brings to the table. This is an excellent boot, and chances are you’ll find a lot more uses for them other than just the occasional day hike.”
