User Review: Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Mid
Materials: leather and Gore-tex
Break-in Period: great right out of the box.
Price Paid: $124
A great, sturdy tennis shoe is what I call this hiking boot. The soft, pliable sole renders this useless as a hiking boot. They do have good ankle support but the sole is not stiff enough. They broke in way too quickly and after a few months look like I have had them for years without much hiking having been done in them.
They are as comfortable as a hiking boot gets but there is no way they can take a load much heavier than your own weight. I use them to work in the yard, walk around town, short dayhikes and just hanging out. They are absurdly overpriced at full price and I still question if I paid too much for what I got. I still give them 3 stars because of the great comfort and looks.
