I've worn Lowa boots for a long while and never had a problem. When I bought these (for light hiking etc) I thought I'd cracked it again but after less than 6 months they've started letting in moisture in the right boot, mid-foot.
A short 5 mile hike in damp grass and my sock was soaked, which made things less than enjoyable.
I don't know whether it's a one-off or whether Lowa's quality control has got worse, but these aren't anywhere near the quality of previous pairs I've had. Such a shame (and a pain in the arse).
