Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots These boots come in wide sizes and give great ankle support. I've worn them pretty much every day for years, in town, on and especially off trail, and have had my first pair resoled after a couple years and bought a couple more pairs so I always have a ready pair. For me these boots are pretty much comfortable right from the box. Two things to know: correct tension in lacing, only tight in the bottom of upper half, just snug elsewhere, is important for comfort, and the sole pattern on the back of the heel won't stop you sliding downhill on a steep slick mud slope. I just wish I'd found these boots years earlier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Souls not good I bought an earlier version of the Tibet GTX boots. I wore it for less than 50 days when both the souls came out. I had it repaired but the souls came out after only a couple of hours of walking with them. I am a Himalayan trek leader who has been leading treks since 1989 and run my own company since 2006. I once owned a pair of Lowa boots that lasted a good 7 years. It is a lot of money to spend on a pair of boots that don't even last you 50 trekking days. However this is the 3rd pair of boots - the souls that have given up in less than 100 days of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots!! 1 of the best boots I've ever worn!! I wear these every day of the year either for work or play and these are by far the most comfortable boots I've had. I'm going into my third year with the same pair with no leaks, leather and rand still look good with plenty of tread left on them. Great ankle support and breathability with minimal break in period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Backcountry hiking boot ever. Back in 2011 I was hesitant to spend $380 bucks on a pair of hiking boots! So glad I dd my back country experiences have become exponentially better. While my hiking buddies are tending to sore feet, blisters etc I sip a little beverage with happy feet. I've logged 500 on hikes inside the Grand Canyon and Zion. I must not forget all the training hikes over the years here in the midwest. When I finally retire these they will be replaced with the same. I know of at least six pair of boots that my friends purchased because of my faith in these. They would say the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good After excellent service in the shoe department, helping me try on numerous different boots, these were the winners and so far they are living up to their reputation. Will check back in again later to see what a few more months will bring with them. If they hold up like my Garmont Dakotas, we are in high cotton.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good for my feet Heel cup not deep enough, toe box too narrow. I have narrow feet from arch back, but arch forward average width. Seem to be sturdy boots. I exchanged them for Zamberlan, without break in did 7.5 mile hike and no issues with Zamberlan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like walking on air Received the boots about a week ago. Have about 25 miles on them. The boot is perfection so far. Will be great for heavy loads along with my 240 pounds.

Tibet GTX vs. Camino GTX? Differences? Which is the newer model? We are carrying heavy loads over long distances and up/down mountains for hunting. Need the flexibility for long hikes/comfort but stability for steep incline ascent/descent.

Asked by: Gameface
The Tibet GTX Hiking Boot has a more supportive shank compared to the Camino GTX Boot. For heavier loads over rougher terrain, the Tibet is the better choice.

I know that the Low Tibet can be resoled. Is that something my local REI can facilitate?

Asked by: BigJake88
