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

Renegade GTX Mid

Renegade GTX Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars I've been using Lowa boots for decades and I don't understand the comments about using the boots for more than two years. I've never used boot more than two years. I've had no problems with the boots in general but after two years of daily usage they are just done to me, and I get new boots. The main point of failure is the sole itself that just wears away. Lowa boots are not cheap, but at this moment I wear indoor shoes that cost me half of the price of these puppies. I either wear Clarks or Lowa. Full review
