User Review: Lowa Women's Renegade II GTX Mid
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200
Great for tooling around town in the rain or for light hikes. These boots are a good lightweight hiker.
- Goretex lined keeps you dry
- Rugged, durable sole
- Good footbed
- No good on rocky terrain
I liked these boots the moment I put them on. Very well fitting, well made light hiking boot.
These are a lot lighter than the backpacking boots I was looking at — for good reason. These are not designed for backpacking, but light hiking on groomed trails. These are not a rock scrambling boot. As long as you remember that and use these boots accordingly, they will give you years of good service.
I recently took them on a relatively long (8 mile) dayhike, and while my feet were sore at the end of it, I think this is more of a conditioning issue than a problem with the boots.
I have found them to have a very good footbed, good support for my foot and ankle. Those that have issues with the performance of this boot are probably using them outside of their intended use. I had to scramble up some rocks with these and it wasn't fun. I slipped many times and I think they need to look at their sole formulation.
But other than that, I can find nothing wrong with these boots. I have not had a problem with them and don't expect to.
