I noticed that some of the Lowa Men's Renegade boots have different styles of loops above the boot heel. Some have a smaller thinner loop with "Renegade" written on it and others have a striped loop that looks more substantial. Are these two different year models of boots? I wondered if one has upgraded features from the previous year....or are they the same boot? Thanks.
I have the version with the striped loop and it's probably the 2010 model. It's one model before the boot shown in the "official" picture of the boot on this website. The more telling feature in determining which model you're looking at is on the outside of the boot at the instep. If there is a molded plastic reinforcement, it's the latest version of the renegade.
Yes, that's definately a difference in that year's model.
