Lowa Boots, which have become my favorite boot manufacturer as of a few years ago released a new model, called the Innox, this year. Waterproof Gortex and lightweight, this boot is available in mid and low-profiles and retail around $200.
From my current experience with Lowa Boots, I can speak with confidence that these boots will last you longer than most boots and the tread will remain after other’s will have expired. I am currently wearing a pair of Lowa GSG Revo’s which have far exceeded my expectations with their comfort, durability, and waterproofing capabilities.
