User Review: Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid
Source: bought it new
The soles of both my and my wife's Lowa boots dissolved after hardly any use.
- Good upper
- The sole dissolves
- Selling shoes with a design fault
My wife and I both both Iowa boots in Thailand some years ago. Both are different models. They are comfortable but we hardly used them at all.
When we did pull them out of the cupboard for a hike the soles completely disintegrated before we even got out the front door, with the sole bottom coming off and the sole innards crumbling. I suspect the humid conditions in Thailand to be the issue. But why sell the boots in Thailand if this is the case?
I consider these an expensive purchase that did not deliver. One would expect the soles to hold up over the years, if they are hardly used. I see several other reports of this same issue. Lowa must know about this design fault.
