Tried on just about every boot and trail runner they had then took the first shoe I tried on, the Lowa. They felt instantly comfortable and supportive. They were so comfortable that I took my first hike in them up Camelback Mountain that same week, having never worn them outside walking at all.
As a novice hiker at this point, I was extremely impressed that the boots were as comfortable when I got back to the bottom of the mountain as they were when I started out. And they were so solid as far as gripping the various conditions of the trail and holding the rock faces that I had to climb.
I bought these to start training for hiking the AT next spring and I know these are my boots for the duration. They give me stability and confidence on the trail.
