    Lowa Renegade GTX Mid Hiking Boots - Men's is rated 4.51 out of 5 by 100.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide and Comfortable I was steered to these boots through a process of elimination, as none of the boots I thought I wanted came in a size to fit my EE foot. Glad the salesman brought these out, as they really worked for me even if they cost a lot more than I had expected to spend. They fit true to size. No break in needed. Have used them on numerous day hikes and about ten overnighters, with daily mileage between 6 and 15 miles, and a load from 30 to 50 lbs. The boots have held up well so far. I tend to easily roll my ankles, and that has rarely occurred with these so I like the stability they seem to offer. They shed water when briefly wet on a crossing, and I have gotten them totally soaked as well. They do take a long time to dry out completely, but they will be dry enough overnight not to matter. Mud and dirt come off with a stiff brush and some warm water, then I treat them with Lowa's boot care products afterwards as I really hope they will last a long while.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low durability I liked these boots and they were very waterproof, but on about their fourth weekend trip they got a split seam (through the waterproofing), and are now useless. I'll be returning them. Happened to my last pair of Lowas too, time to switch brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boots I went to REI to get a pair of Vasque hiking boots based on the reviews. After trying on the Vasques, I tried on these Lowa boots, and what a world of difference. They were way more comfortable. After spending a week hiking in Death Valley, where we were literally hiking 8-10 hours a day, I have to say these are the best boots made anywhere. Definitely will get them again if these ever wear out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trekk My boyfriend bought these hiking shoes for long day hikes with large pack loads for thru hiking. He loves them, he still can't believe how awesomely waterproof they are. He said when the soles wear out the company will replace it, which is the best customer service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good boots for short hikes... I bought these boots about a year ago with the intention of using them for various hike lengths. I've so far used them on everything from relatively plain 5-7 mile jaunts here in the "hills" of Minnesota, to a 26 mile round trip (single day)hike of Barr Trail on Pike's Peak in Colorado. I will say that they are very comfotable for the first while, but after about the 5 mile mark my feet start to get pretty sore. I've only gotten blisters on the long Pike's Peak hike, which, admittedly, probably would have given me blisters no matter what I wore considering I was on my feet for the better part of 18 hours that day. The Gore-tex is surprisingly good at keeping out moisture for the small amount I've tested them in that way. All told, these are pretty good boots, so long as you have the right purpose in mind when buying them, which I did not. They don't seem to be meant for longer hikes with a loaded pack, as I have discovered the hard way. Maybe they just aren't the right boots for my feet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect, but close enough I bought the Renegades after trying on quite a few different boots. The out-of-the-box fit was the most comfortable. I was in the market for a solid boot for moderate day hikes as part of my efforts to lose weight and change my lifestyle. I added a pair of heat-formed inserts to further customize the fit (also purchased at REI - great product). It's now several years and over 100 pounds later, and I've put well over 1,000 miles on these boots. I've done everything from longer hikes on reclaimed railroad grades to round trips of 10-12 miles on some of the steepest and most challenging trails in the Cascades. I've also worn the boots with snowshoes on steep routes in deep powder. The boots have performed admirably in all of these conditions. I have three minor complaints with the boots, though: 1. While the sole holds up well overall, it seems like it loses its bite pretty quickly, reducing grip in some situations, especially when descending hard-packed dirt slopes or packed snow. Additional traction devices are a good idea. 2. The open eyelets in the uppers aren't quite deep enough, and the laces will sometimes slip out during steeper climbs, necessitating a stop to retie. 3. The toe box is a little narrow on the outside, creating the potential for blisters on the outside of the little toe during steep descents unless the boot is laced VERY snugly. One of the seams on the toe of one boot recently opened up, so it's time for new boots, but given the many miles of hard use and the great overall performance of the Renegade, it's likely I'll be buying them again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, so far! I hike about 30 miles a week on and off trails as far away from civilization as I can get. These shoes let me walk on rocks without feeling them and keep my feet very comfortable. No toe pinching on the downhill or ankle rubbing on the sidehill. These are the best shoes I've had so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots This is the third pair that I have owned, not that they wear quickly, just that in the winter and a good part of spring and fall I wear them almost everyday. Very light, comfortable and long lasting.
