Still wearing my 50 year old Lowas!
I have a pair of Lowa boots that I purchased in 1965 from a person in Washington State.
I have used them on and off over the past 50 years, and having just refound them I will continue to use them!
I have hiked in the Olympics, the Adirondacks, Appalachians, many other places, and they have always been my faithful friends.
Amazingly, they have held up, and are in fine shape. These boots are marked "Made in West Germany," a country that no longer exists, but these boots still are fine.
