User Review: Lowa Men's Renegade II GTX Mid
Materials: leather, Gore-tex
Use: wet weather city use, car camping, very light hiking.
Break-in Period: none required
Price Paid: $80
With this boot, you need to know what you want to use them for. It is great for running around in the city when its wet or light hiking on paved roads or trails without rocks as well as car camping. Once you take these out of their range of capabilities, you will set yourself up for disappointment. On rocky trails, you will feel every stone and the softness of the shoe will not prevent you from spraining your ankles.
That being said the softness makes for a very comfortable shoe on paved roads. So for light hiking on smooth trails and city use in wet conditions it is very comfortable and does the job, but for any trails with stones or backpacking I will always go for my Scarpa Barun GTX.
