Ben Rabinowitzwrote a review of Lowa San Francisco GTX Lo Shoe - Men's on February 14, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
I'll start off by saying the only thing I don't really like about these shoes is the color of the laces but that can be easily changed. Other than that the shoes seem pretty rad.
Size wise, they are a tad narrow for me, but I have wide enough feet thta I find this to be the case with pretty much every shoe. I needed to size up a half size (went with a 12 and I'm generally an 11.5) for a comfortable fit. Arch/instep are good for me (low arch, low volume foot) and the heel is a bit large for me but probably great for most other folk as I have a narrow heel.
The Surround technology seems pretty cool and my feet are noticeably less sweaty than when i wear my regular boots.
I can see these shoes being great for urban and around town use, as well as light hikers and possibly approach shoes (don't know how sticky the rubber is but most approaches don't require full on approach shoes). I could even see myself using these as MTB shoes with flat pedals in a pinch.
