Outstanding, solid hiker.
I have had a few pairs of these and what they lack in style they sure make up in comfort and durability. Wearing these boots is like wearing a pair of slippers. I love the fact that they slip on and envelope the foot providing cushion on all planes within the foot cavity. I think they are a very neutral boot, which is good for medium to narrow wearers. The vibram is sticky, the uppers hold together nice and I have never noticed wear on the tongue or around the top of the toe box. They felt pretty light to me, and had a really nice flex in the top of the toe box. allowing for a smooth roll of the metatarsals and phalanges. The lacing stays pretty tight and the laces stay knotted. I wear a size 10.5 in most footwear and I wear a 10.5 in these so I am going to say they are true to size which has been my experience with all Lowa footwear in the past.
