The nimble and lightweight LOWA Aerano GTX day hikers can’t be any more ideal for fall hiking, thanks to their Gore-Tex waterproof laminate and side ventilation outlets that allow foot sweat and other moisture to escape from the bottom.
Fit and stability is outstanding and traction is very good. Although the lugs aren’t as aggressive as full-on hiking boot, they work well at shedding mud and debris.
And wow, the comfort. These are boots that you won’t race to kick off at the end of the day or plunge your feet into a cold lake.
