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

Zephyr Desert Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars These boots are the most comfortable and supportive boots I’ve ever owned. Too bad I’m about to throw them away because the outer sole and inner sole have an air pocket. This causes the loudest squeaking I’ve ever heard!!!!! I spent $200 on the most comfortable loudest damn boots I’ve ever owned. The right boot squeaks so loud that it makes wearing them annoying. Sad that Lowa prides themselves on craftsmanship and the inner sole and outer soles can’t stay together.  Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Don't go for lightweight boots. I got the earlier model in 1991 and they lasted almost 15 years. Don't make the mistake of buying a lighter LOWA boot. I replaced my old boots with the leather lined Renegade GTX, which resulted in blisters, wet feet, and sore foot soles. Holes have already appeared in the tongue after less than 400 miles. I regularly go on 20-mile day hikes and if you want a certain comfort level there's a price to pay in terms of heavier boots. After only a year I'm looking to buy… Full review
