McCarthy, Chris

It’s been a constant problem for me with mid-height hikers: regardless of brand, the boots rub on the insides of my ankles. I mess with the lacing. Move the tongue to different places. Try socks of different thickness. Regardless of changes, I notice the rubbing, usually accompanied with an uncomfortable pressure, and sometimes blisters. The Vantage GTX from LOWA seems to have solved my problem. The lacing system features a stud in the middle of the upper tongue, referred to as the C4 tongue. When used in combination with the seven eyelets, this stud helps ensure that the boot is snug from the toe box up to the ankle. A split-leather and Cordura upper, combined with a Gore-Tex lining make the boots lightweight, water resistant, and durable. Add in the Trac Lite II outsole and the toe and heel guards and I am—finally—in hiking nirvana. $245; lowaboots.com
