User Review: Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150
A fantastic boot. Steady Italian craftsmanship is to be found.
- Size fits like a glove.
- Very durable.
- Every rock that gets stuck in the treads, you will find in your carpet at home.
Lets start by pointing out that I have very picky feet, and a very picky back, and that I am very hard on boots due to hiking every day possible, all day long.
The very first thing I did was coat them with a very liberal amount of mink oil, and it worked out very well. It took a good two weeks, for me to break these boots in, and get them loosened up—this time was very well spent.
These boots have allowed me to go onto, and into, any terrain so far without fail. They fit like a glove on my feet, and have very durable, and thick, soles. You feel very little under you as you walk.
Once again I must admit, the U.S. boot manufacturers have A LOT to learn from the Italian boot makers. You will not be upset buying a pair of these boots. I saw prices averaging, from $150 to $225, for the same boot online, so do comparison shop for these. You won't be dissappointed at all.
