Renegade GTX Mid

rated 0.5 of 5 stars TERRIBLE shoe. Avoid. Rip-off. I bought these Lowa boots three years ago—for a very healthy price!—and have used them only minimally, about five times a year on easy to mild day hikes. When I took them out to use them a couple weeks ago, the soles on BOTH were coming off. I asked a cobbler to glue them back on (for $11). When I went out walking, the soles both came off within five minutes. They were flapping and shoveling up dirt and snow with every step. TERRIBLE shoe. Avoid. Rip-off. Full review

Zephyr Desert Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars These boots are the most comfortable and supportive boots I’ve ever owned. Too bad I’m about to throw them away because the outer sole and inner sole have an air pocket. This causes the loudest squeaking I’ve ever heard!!!!! I spent $200 on the most comfortable loudest damn boots I’ve ever owned. The right boot squeaks so loud that it makes wearing them annoying. Sad that Lowa prides themselves on craftsmanship and the inner sole and outer soles can’t stay together.  Full review

Trekker

rated 5 of 5 stars Don't go for lightweight boots. I got the earlier model in 1991 and they lasted almost 15 years. Don't make the mistake of buying a lighter LOWA boot. I replaced my old boots with the leather lined Renegade GTX, which resulted in blisters, wet feet, and sore foot soles. Holes have already appeared in the tongue after less than 400 miles. I regularly go on 20-mile day hikes and if you want a certain comfort level there's a price to pay in terms of heavier boots. After only a year I'm looking to buy… Full review

Renegade GTX Mid

rated 2 of 5 stars So here's my Lowa story...a shoe that feels mostly comfortable right out of the box, costs a lot, and falls apart in a couple of years. First off, I'm very grateful for the beautiful nature that exists. My life is very busy but I'm able to go hiking every once in a while. A few years ago, I bought my first hiking boots. Due to my excitement at that time for the adventure outdoors, I bought three different brands (Lowa, Montrail, Vasque). This mini story/review is about the Lowa brand boots I purchased. Full review

Zephyr GTX Mid

rated 5 of 5 stars I've bought about four pairs of these boots over the last 10 years and I live in them every day of the week, around the office, on the hills and crags. They typically last me 1 -2 years. Water resistance is good in wet and boggy hikes. The comfort factor for my feet is perfect and I have a wide foot. I have lived in these boots over the last 10 years and a pair lasts me about two years with constant daily use. Break-in time for me is about zero to one full day. On a day to day basis the comfort… Full review
