jleephotowrote a review of Lowa Renegade GTX Mid Hiking Boot - Men's on November 13, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I've got a lot of hiking boots/shoes for different purposes but these are my favorite all round every day boots. I'm a 6' 200lb photojournalist that covers a lot of outdoor activities with worldwide travel and am always lugging heavy equipment. I bought these for a trip to Afghanistan in 2012 and have worn these daily around town during the fall/winter. I consider them a mid-weight. They required very little break in and have held up surprising well considering the amount of stitching. I have low volume size 11.5-12 feet and the 12s in these are on the wide side but a pair of Superfeet green insoles fills them out perfectly.
They're not only good on the trail but the style works well with khakis and a sport coat for around town.
I go with something heavier for long trips with a heavy pack and wear light hiking shoes during the summer, but I always look forward to putting these on and am back here to buy a new pair.
