Amazing at first.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I got a pair of these boots and thought they were fantastic out of the box. Looked great and felt great, water-proof and gripped the ground very well. After a while I took these boots up a 14er, they did not preform well at all. I later used them in the Guadalupe National Park and they fell apart even more. The color faded rapidly as well. For the price these boots were not worth it for me for the small time I had them.

Best hiking boots!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Finally gave in and got a pair and my feet are thanking me with every hike. Got a half size bigger then what I normally wear and they work great with padded socks. Have also worn them with thinner socks and don't have any problems. Easy to clean, water repellency is great, and solid feel.
Best feature I think is the stability in hiking down the mountain. No more foot slipping, solid feel on the ground, upper part of boot has just the right amount of stiffness to keep my foot planted.

Best hiking boots!!

Does anyone one know if the leather on the Lowa Renegade's already has DWR (durable water repellant) on it?

I just bought a new pair and was wondering if I should even bother applying waterproofing yet.

If the boot already has some type of DWR coating, I'm waiting to wear it out before applying. If it doesn't have DWR, I'm planning on applying now.

Anyone?

Responded on

I couldnt find anywhere or anyone who specifically said it had a DWR coating. Usually when companies use a DWR coating they are super proud of it and post it everywhere so we can safely assume it was not. Either way it wouldnt hurt the boot at all, the Gore-Tex membrane should hold any rain at bay.

Thank you Bill.

It's true that Lowa does not mention anything about DWR on their website(s) for this specific model, nor any other if I'm correct.

I did run some water onto the leather and there seems to be some type of repellency going on. However, because Lowa hasn't mentioned anything about DWR I don't know if this is due to the leather's natural nature or if they've applied a very light coat of repellent of some sort already.

Either way I've decided on wearing the boot out first before reapplying anything on it.

What? They fit!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have weird super flat feet and most boots kill me. I bought these in the wide and so far I love them. I just got back form a 20 mile hike with a pretty dang heavy pack and my feet aren't throbbing. We were in the Tucannan/Wenaha wilderness area and we went through every type of terrain, long flat lunar landscapes to steep lush, wet and densly forested areas without any problems. They might not have the flash as some of the others but these are seriously good boots.

Round 3

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have a wide foot and these being available from Lowa in a wide had some appeal. Having had 2 other pairs of Lowa's I had high expectations. All 3 run different in width, and these are the narrowest of the 3 (Tibet and Ticam are the other 2 models I have). Very comfortable, have held up well, quite a bit lighter than the other ones as well. I would put these as a nice entry level boot, and Lowa's only get better from here. Water proof, comfy, they could use a little more cushion in the sole, but being that I have a bum knee I have high standards. I prefer a little higher boot for the ankle support, so I tend to use these are flat elevations.

Dry toes in Alaska

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These hiking boots DELIVER. Just got back from a two week trip to Alaska where I put the beat down on them. Hiked the rocky West Glacier Trail to the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, strapped crampons to the Lowas and ice climbed, then took a much harder trail back through inclines, mud, and dense brush. Hiked in hours of solid rain and countless times submerged my whole foot ankle deep in a stream or rain hole. My feet stayed warm and dry the whole time--as in not one drop of water penetrated. Used it for two more regular trail hikes and then went halibut fishing in them. The Vibram soles kept me slip free almost the entire time except once when I slid on wet moss--which will slip any sole ever made. All said and done I hiked probably 20-25 miles total and my feet felt great. No blisters--not even any abrasions or skin irritations thanks to baby powder, awesome hiking socks, and most of all these boots! And to think I got these only because they were the most comfortable hikers I tried on (I went a 1/2 size up to accommodate thick socks and potential swelling). I will wear these until they rot!

Best hiking boot in the world!

My husband has put these through the wringer and they've held up well. He is a geologist and has been hiking every day for four weeks straight. No problems. He also wears them when riding is motorcycle and they work well for that too.

Great Hiking Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have put some miles on these boots. I live in Tahoe but have taken them to NZ, Nepal, Colorado, Sierra's, etc. and I wouldn't buy another boot because I haven't experienced any shortcomings.

3rd pair

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I'm on my third pair, which is the good and not so good news. Pluses: VERY comfortable, hike all day boots. Minus: seams start to unravel long before the soles are worn out. I go through one pair per season, though admittedly I'm pretty rough on them -- lots of granite talus and scree in the Sierra high country. They work, so I just buy a new pair every season -- not a good idea to scrimp on boots. In the photo (which was not mean to be a photo of the boots) you can just barely see one of the seams starting to come apart. This has happened with all 3 pairs. At least I get a full season of happy feet for the price of the boots. If you don't hike as much or in the granite grinder of the Sierra, you can probably get multiple seasons out of these boots.

Hooves for Pops

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

My dad is a mountain goat, and needed some boots that would match his hiking abilities. He's been wearing a ratty old version of these bad boys for teaching field geology in obscure locations for the better part of a decade and they were starting to get prettttty sad looking (I'll try to snag a photo). Being the great kid I am, I picked him this years model and he was thrilled. He tells me they fit the same as the old pair, and only took a few hikes to break in. If you are looking to get a durable pair of hiking boots, I would absolutely recommend these, I especially like the high ankles to protect you from sprains and breaks on rough terrain.

Most comfortable boots I've ever owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

My boots are about 12 years old now. I've used them to hike and backpack in Shenandoah National Park, George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. Fit great right out of the box. I've never had a blister in these shoes. Great traction on rock.

Excellent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The color is as shown, dark grey / rust. Laces are strong and pull tight easily, the 3 hooks (on each side) on the high top part keep the shoe snug around the ankle. The entire shoe is strong, it's not going to fall apart, very durable. The only negative is they are not warm - they are not winter boots, they are spring/summer/autumn hiking shoes

Great boot.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these boots and hiked 8-13 miles a day in these boots for a week in Utah. They held up well. My feet hurt only after one 13 mile hike that was solely uphill and downhill (on the 6th day of hiking). I wear these to work because I don't own winter boots. I would recommend these boots.

Great Hiking Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have had these for two years now, and after a good wash they look just as good as the day I bought them. They're comfortable, durable, and an overall high quality boot.

Great support from a light boot!

I have 3 pairs of Lowa renegades. They are very supportive and very light. very durable.

GEAR REVIEW: Lowa Renegade GTX Boot

You absolutely should not skimp when it comes to boots for hiking and backpacking. A good, well-made pair of boots is going to cost a little more than bargain priced boots, but it's an investment that is well worth it. In this video gear review, we take a look at Lowa's #1 selling hiking boot, the Renegade GTX. This is a great boot for hiking and lighter backpacking and is a good choice if it's your first "real" hiking boot. This boot is made for comfort and flexibility, but still has many high-end features. It's also one of Lowa's least expensive boots. For more details on the Renegade GTX from Lowa Boots, watch our brief video gear review above. Your feet will thank you.

Great review. I love these boots. I'd like to add that if you're in a pinch and you tie them in a particular way you can add some more ankle support for heavier loads. I had to do this when I was backpacking in the Grand Canyon and a freak snow storm forced me to really ratchet them down with a around 25lb pack. Here's a link that helped me a lot.

Lowa Renegades

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I hiked the entire CDT with these. Three pairs over 3000+ miles. 30-35 pound pack. No blisters, no break-in. They lose waterproofing after a while and are not particularly long lasting. That's the trade off of comfort versus durability. As I said before, no blisters......

Good Everyday Boot

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these boots for what they are, an excellent everyday boot. They are good on the medium trails with fairly lightweight loads, and around town. I'm an outdoor photographer and these have been my go to boots for years. They form to your feet well and have good lateral flexibility. Like just about every shoe/boot I need better insoles, so add the price of Superfeet. What they are NOT are heavy duty backpacking boots for the most gnarly terrain. For that look at the Banffs or Tibets. The only problem is that they are priced high for what they are. Still, I buy 'em because I've yet to find anything more comfortable.

Get it, you will love them.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used these boots in Alaska, Canadian Rockies and Switzerland. From walking around town, to backpacking with 33LB pack. No issues. I used medium size wool socks. Quality is great and if you have any questions, customer service is a phone call away.
