Lowa Stirling GTX

A 3-season boot that features a Gore-Tex waterproof lining; full leather upper with minimal stitching to increase durability; full rubber rand around whole boot for durability; very stiff toe box to protect the feet from rocks; stiff Vibram sole ideal for rocky ground; reasonable lug pattern for general traction. But the lug pattern on some boots is a little better for tackling muddy ground; if you don’t want a waterproof lining, then get the Lowa Munro for£120.

Verdict: Buy it if you prefer boots with a waterproof lining and want a good general trekking, backpacking, hill and mountain walking boot.
