User Review: Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid
Price Paid: $180
I agree with most of the other reviewers;
I have owned a multiple of pairs of these boots and while they are very comfortable, they breakdown too quickly and then subsequently need to be replaced. I expect that the major place that most boots should wear down is with the outer soles. These seem to last.
What breaks down are the uppers. The rubber on the front of the boots starts to come off and a particular part of an outer seem will come un-sewn.
I have owned at least six pair of these boots and they have all broken down in ways that were the result, IMO of inadequate design. It is as if their design life was one to two years (at most).
