Re: Lowa Tibet GTX brand new for sale.
Hi Daniel, I just want to comment on this. Over the last so many years I have been finding that the U.S and Euro boots have become progressively narrower. Lowa like many others has a very small toe box. This is a problem for Kiwi's because we wear heavy bush socks (heavy wool).

There are some new brands of thin hard wearing sock, quite expensive. Chris Murphy told me about a brand he has been wearing that works well. I cannot recall the brand just now but could find out. Apart from this, as Kiwis, we need to order both extra wide and also a half or sometimes 1 extra size up in some brands if we are to continue wearing our traditional socks. In the Lowa brand, I believe 1 full size up and / or plus extra wide is the way to go. To this end, your boots Daniel, may well suit a smaller hunter, also a female hunter, size 7.5 to 8.

It bloody annoys me, boots made for pissy thin cotton socks. Otherwise, the construction on the Lowa is excellent. Anyway, you are not the only one to end up in this situation. These will be good boots for someone with smaller feet than yourself. They should last extremely well.

The great kiwi bush sock, worn whether in the workshop, the field or around camp as a moccasin.

Hi all I have found Bestard to be quite a wide fit and have had a good run from mine.

Find a Cobbler and get them stretched. Are they leather or synthetic? If leather, soak in water over night and then wear them wet for a day. Run climb and work them in. Most boots stretch a bit from new once broken in. I realize that finding a Cobbler in NZ will be like trying to get fresh Moa eggs for a Christmas omelet.

Re: Lowa Tibet GTX brand new for sale.
The Lowa generally have a strong rubber rand so they cannot be stretched. So as I said, its a matter of either thin socks or up sizing. The Lowa are very good quality and very comfortable. Its just the sizing of these and other foreign brands in modern styles that is a problem for kiwis. The person who buys Daniels boots will get a good deal, its just a real bummer that Daniel and many other kiwis have been caught out during purchasing.

Re: Lowa Tibet GTX brand new for sale.
Yea thanks Nathan,exactly right about the socks,i have tried some thin socks i have got and wore them around the lounge for a while but still didn't take long to start niggling,so thought i would just call it quits and sell them as new before they go out side,its a real shame they are very nice boots but hopefully i can move them on.
