Renegade GTX Mid

rated 3 of 5 stars Soles not durable (but this may be a weight-related issue. See the detailed review). My wife and I both purchased these boots on the same day, and covered exactly the same mileage. They have been used for a mix of average-hill and some extreme-slope walking. I would not use these on extreme rocky and loose surfaces because the level of grip is not that good. After two years, hers are still fresh and intact on the soles, whilst the soles on mine are very badly degraded (edge lugs crumbling and breaking… Full review

Tibet GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Quality, durability, comfort, and protection. Very good three-season backpacking boot as long as it fits! Toe box could be bigger, I was surprised to lose a toenail after a rough tip on the Lost Coast in N. California. I would recommend these. I am mostly satisfied with them. These were closeouts so I may have an earlier version of these boots. I thought the fit was fine with no blisters or issues until I lost a toenail on a long rough trip (for me). I have stuffed tennis balls in the toe boxes… Full review

Renegade GTX Lo

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Very comfortable shoes, but with weakpoints and too expensive for not repairable shoes. I have had several pairs of these shoes of several model years. The foam/fabric heel cushion is not durable and falls apart soon. More than once the upper-shoe leather tears apart on the outside sole line. Worn sole cannot be replaced while there's nothing beneath the sole. Too expensive for non-durable shoes. Full review

Camino GTX

rated 2 of 5 stars My son is currently on a trail in Iceland. He wore these for three hours. It rained and he walked in ice slush. The toe box leaked and they are completely soaked. Stranded in Iceland. Really poor quality. Poor quality and not as advertised durably waterproof for inclement weather. Did not stand up to rain or walking in snow three hours without leaking in the boxes. Completely saturated. Full review

Renegade GTX Mid

rated 0.5 of 5 stars TERRIBLE shoe. Avoid. Rip-off. I bought these Lowa boots three years ago—for a very healthy price!—and have used them only minimally, about five times a year on easy to mild day hikes. When I took them out to use them a couple weeks ago, the soles on BOTH were coming off. I asked a cobbler to glue them back on (for $11). When I went out walking, the soles both came off within five minutes. They were flapping and shoveling up dirt and snow with every step. TERRIBLE shoe. Avoid. Rip-off. Full review
