Lowa footwear is very popular and customers find their footwear really comfortable straight from the shoe box. The Taurus Gtx is a great choice choice for low level walks and moderate hikes where wearing a full boot may not be preferable. The upper is made with a combination of suede and durable mesh fabric with a Monowrap construction integrated in the upper to provide stability. Lined with Goretex, your feet will stay nice and dry and continue to breathe too. The Taurus Gtx has a good, low cut and available in half sizes for a great fit.
