Summer may officially be over, but Northern New England is still having some summer weather – and I am reluctant to let go. But, I finally updated some reviews. I spent early summer camping and hiking in Iceland with my daughter. The rest of the summer was spent on local trips, hiking mostly with my young dogs. The weather was cool, hot and humid, windy and just about everything in between.

Boots are an essential part of any outdoor kit and the innovation that continues to take place in the footwear industry almost rivals Moore’s law. I will be reviewing the Lowa Aerox Mid which has incorporated some of the newest technology from Gore and Lowa. Read on for my initial thoughts.

I just got back from an amazing trip to Iceland. We camped and hiked for 6 days, and I am already thinking about how soon I could go back! We walked, hiked and climbed a LOT. I was fortunate to be reviewing a pair of LOWA Aerox GTX Surrounds while there. Read about how they worked out HERE.
- Following directions was a bit of a challenge, but thankfully most signs had pictures, and almost everyone spoke English.
- Imagine seeing this as you climb in your tent at night!
LOWA Maine GTX Women’s boot
Next week, I’m heading to Iceland for some exploring, camping and hiking. I’m trying to travel light, so I’m only taking two pairs of shoes. My LOWA Maine GTX shoes for exploring in town, and my LOWA Aerox GTX® Surround‘s for hiking. The Maine’s arrived back in the winter, but are intended to be a casual, spring/summer/fall shoe. I think they will serve the purpose, especially since we plan on doing a lot of walking. Read about the Maine’s HERE.
I’m really looking forward to doing some hiking in Iceland in 10 days! Coming with me on my hikes will be the LOWA Aerox GTX Surround Women’s multi-use shoe. We (my daughter and I) plan on camping and hiking while there, with some kayaking thrown in. These LOWA s are definitely lightweight, so lets see how they do on the hikes. Read more about them HERE

These shoes were received for review purposes.
But where is our snow?
LOWA Maine GTX Women’s snow boots
I received the LOWA Maine GTX boots for review purposes, and am anxious to try them out. We really do need some snow, and hopefully will have some before too long. The boots look like high top sneakers, but are designed for wearing in the snow and cold. With uppers made from Waxed Cotton Canvas/Polyester/Full Grain Leather and a lining that is waterproof and includes GORE-TEX®, I am very curious as too how they will do.
