Description

All-day comfort for short hauls and weekend trips.

Lowa has upgraded its popular Women’s Renegade GTX Mid Hiking Boot with a new Monowrap frame construction that not only reduces the boot’s weight but also improves its stability for even greater comfort on your weekend hikes. Combined with a women’s-specific last and a stiffer shank for extra support, the Renegade GTX is ready for miles of hiking on anything from gravel roads to boulder-strewn backcountry trails.
  • Monowrap construction utilizes polyurethane injected around the sides of the shoe to wrap the foot in a lightweight, comfortable and supportive frame
  • Gore-Tex liners seal out moisture while allowing water vapor to escape so you can ford streams and slog through mud with dry feet
  • Climate Control System allows air to enter the lining while the walking movement pumps heat and moisture out
  • Vibram Vialta outsole offers confidence-inspiring traction on mixed terrain

boot love

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

after much research and review-stalking, I got these boots for a 3-week trip to Norway, which included camping/roadtripping for 2 weeks and they actually made me-- a city girl who has to be enticed to participate in nature-- WANT to hike! I'm 41 and have had weak ankles in the past, not to mention a very un-athletic history of movement. I've never broken any bones, but have torn ligaments in my ankles in high school, so I've always been wary about ankle support. and in recent years, I've had knee issues due to turned out knee caps, which result in episodes of pain similar to a twisted knee.

with these boots, I felt like a mountain goat, hiking everything from the steep climb of Morkgonga in Honefoss... to the rocky terrain at Molen (pretty much a field of glacial rock deposits, dabbled with piles of rock cairns from the Viking days) on the south coast... to the mostly uphill 2-hour one-way hike to Pulpit Rock on the western coast near the fjords. in fact, my hiking partner said I looked like "a rabbit jumping from rock to rock."

as others have attested to, I didn't need a "break-in" period. they were comfortable and light from the first use, and I only used one pair of hiking socks.

without a doubt, these boots are one of the best pieces of gear I've ever purchased.

great all around boot

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

I picked up a pair for these about 7 months ago and I'm finally ready to review them. I've been very pleased with their comfort and performance in different conditions. Through snow, mud and ice conditions my feet were nice and dry. I was surprised with how comfortable they were out of the box....and I can confirm after taking them on various trails they are still comfortable after 7 or 8 hours of hiking!

Because of a previous injury, ankle support is a concern of mine. These boots offer great support and I have found I'm able to navigate all sorts of terrain without worrying about my ankle with these Lowas. I wear an 8 in most shoes and these are an 8 for me as well.

overall, these are a great choice for boots, I don't think you can go wrong here!

Great Boots!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I love these. They fit slightly large, had to go down a half size. They are rugged-yet-good-looking. I tried on so many hiking boots and these won out. Great ankle support and arch support, (I broke my ankle recently and really appreciate that ankle support) and they just feel tough, like they could take on anything. Good traction on snow & ice and pretty much everything. I've worn them out several times here in Colorado on slushy/snowy/cold days, and they are great. I wasn't expecting hiking boots to be warm, but they are! But not so much that they would be too warm in the summer. Comfortable, NO break-in period, I just can't say enough about these. Before these boots, I had never even heard of Lowa. Now they will be my top hiking boot brand. I would so definitely recommend these to anyone in need of an amazing boot that is ready to tackle anything.

Update: I took these out on a pretty steep trail in the mountains a few days ago. Couldn't have asked for more out of them. Trekking through mud, snow, and ice, they kept my feet warm and dry. I climbed over huge rocks and small rocks and tiny slippery rocks and it was great. [I felt rather like a mountain goat.] Not one complaint whatsoever at all!!

These boots are so comfortable and come in wide, just what I needed for my always sore old broken toe. Good, thick, comfortable padding around the ankles and no blisters anywhere on my first long hike. The soles really grip and the beds are comfy. They are amazingly lightweight for being so sturdy.

Comfy from the start - Run Large

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought these boots for my Mom and this is her review of them.
"I just received my new Renegade Lowa Mid hiking boots a few weeks ago and I LOVE them. I have a very hard to fit foot and am always uncomfortable in shoes, however these hiking boots are comfortable immediately both before and after breaking them in. I find them very stable and comfortable and they don't weigh me down. I was more comfortable in these boots than in regular sneakers (my daughters preference) when hiking. I highly recommend these boots"
Having recently had her second ACL surgery my Mom likes to make sure her feet/ankles are supported and these boots have been successfully doing the job.
She did note that she usually wears a size 8.5 or 9 but these fit her in a size 8.

I have problem feet (bunions) and need an extra wide boot/shoe. Can anyone comment on the width and toebox?

Responded on

These boots will run a little large for length with a generous toe box though the midfoot will fit like a standard "D" width.

Responded on

I purchased a wide which was great for my problem feet!

Perfect!

Just used my boots in Zion National Park, and my boots felt great the entire trip! What more can a hiker say!

Comfy and Supportive

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I need comfortable boots with support for both my ankles and arches. After reading LOTS of reviews, I bought these boots in January 2013, intending to use them for snowshoeing this winter as well as hiking in the coming summer. I have snowshoed twice in them and have worn them around town in Colorado on messy,snowy days--great support, no leaks, no blisters, warm feet. Waaay more comfortable than my previous leather, steel-shank hiking boots. They also accommodate my orthotic inserts when I choose to use them for extra arch support. Can't wait hike in them this summer. Very satisfied with my purchase thus far.

Good Boots

Got these a month before my first Grand Canyon hike. No break-in; they were good from the first wearing. I've hiked from the South Rim to Phantom Ranch three times in the last four years in these boots and they are comfortable on rocks, hills, and in water (snow melt). I carried a light pack, about 20 - 25 lbs. I enhanced them with insoles from REI. That made them more supportive.

Just curious...what type of insole did you purchase to go in your Lowa boots?

I'm still in search of boots for a Philmont...

Posted on

I'm still in search of boots for a Philmont trek with my son this summer. I tried another pair of boots with a less flexible sole and quite bit heavier but after backpacking in them they were just too klunky and did not fit well. These boots are so comfortable but I worry that the soles are not as rigid as other boots. So my question is: are these boots "Philmont-worthy"?

PS. I weigh 115 lbs, so pack can be at max 35 pounds (i.e., max load will be about 150lbs)

Responded on

Wore these in 2008 711-M4 And I am still wearing them. I highly recommend Lowa Renegades for Philmont.

Responded on

ccop149363: yes these are true to size but I did go up 1/2 size because of the extra thickness from a liner + wool hiking sock.

Now to answer my own question in regards to wearing these boots for Philmont. I did indeed wear them at Philmont and I did like them. However, I did ultimately find them a little heavy for me personally given my size and my max pack weight of 30lbs. When I do Philmont again, I will go for more of a "trail" shoe with ankle support than a backpacking shoe. If you plan to have a heavy pack then highly recommend these boots.

Only for light dayhikes

Love these boots for easy trails, not too steep of hills. They're light and comfortable.
HOWEVER, when I started going up steeper, rockier trails, they didn't work for me because the sole is too flexible (my feet were tired after the soles bent over every rock and twig), and on steeper trails, my heel slips around enough to cause blisters.
I would recommend these for easy day hikes. I would NOT recommend for backpacking (really, any pack over about 20 pounds, these shoes are not supportive for backpacking).

I disagree.i have had two pairs of renegades...and have tried about 3 other brands.nope went back to lowa renegade...i love lowa boots..i hike alot...just did 30 miles in three days, over 11,000 ft elevation gain, and not a problem. hiked wind river range, mountains in colorado,with these boots..nope..not a problem..

Responded on

oh yeah..and i carried about 45-50 pounds..walked through water, never leaked, gripped like a mountain goat on the slides and comfy on my feet..thinking we all have different feet..just gotta find the right boot.(and socks).and by experience..buy two pairs..:)

Responded on

I disagree with Lori, and agree with Ism**. These boots are good for heavy hiking as well as day hiking. They're light in weight but plenty rugged and supportive.
