The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated5out of5byMotherLYearthfromLOVE THESE BOOTS!!I bought a pair of these for myself after having bought a different pair of boots that gave me debilitating heel pain due to crossbars in the sole. I had 6 months of physical therapy to deal with the pain then put these boots on and loved them right away. I have already walked over a thousand miles in them and loved them so much I bought a pair for my daughter. I have been through mud, water over my head, very rough terrain, snow and ice and they still perform as I expect. They keep my feel dry and warm and barely show any wear. I strongly recommend buying a half size larger because if you wear the appropriate socks and hike as much as I do, your feet swell and any boot is much more comfortable when it fits through that.

Rated5out of5bylougotsfromGreat boot, and available in wide!My wife has trouble finding shoes that fit her wide feet (and bunion) and orthotics. Even wide shoes often are too narrow. First off, I wear men's D and I'm on my second pair of these in 12 years. They are great all-around lightweight boots that I get a lot of use out of. When my wife was looking for light hiking boots and saw that these were available in women's wide I urged her to try them because of how great mine fit and how relatively supple the leather is for a hiking boot. She was skeptical going in but was very surprised how good the felt in the store. Of course the proof is out on the trail and she's been very happy with them a dozen or so outings now.

Rated5out of5byJugifromWorth every penny!I can't say enough good things about these boots. Waterproof, mudproof, comfortable and no breaking in required. Toe box is wide enough for my wide feet, and the ankle lacing keeps my narrow heels in place. I followed the salesperson's advice and bought larger than my usual size (1.5 sizes larger).

Rated5out of5byWeatherWomanfromHave my 3rd pair in reserve!I just used my refund to buy my third pair of these boots to have in reserve I love them so much. I have a bad ankle with arthritis and they are my daily footwear, supportive but also very comfortable. When the guy at REI suggested them, and I tried them on, I almost gave them back, I told him they were too comfortable! But he convinced me to give them a try and now I wouldn't be without them. Lightweight, waterproof, good support, and they are sturdy. I run in them, hike in them, perfect for my needs.

Rated5out of5bymnvikingsfromGreat bootJust bought them wore them on 4 mile walk on icy sidewalks. Wanted to break them in..Not needed. Left my old Merrell's in St.Lucia after hiking Pytons and those boots couldn't handle slippery rocks, plus lace holder pulled out of the boot. These boot are comfortable, dry and good tractions. Can"t wait for summer to hike the mountain paths in South Dakota.

Rated4out of5byWildtownerfromNew Boots Seem NarrowerLowa Renegades are still a very good mid-weight, all-leather hiking boot, with good quality/durability. My only concern is that the newer version seems to have a narrower toe box than the older Renegades. This is an unfortunate development, because boots cannot be comfortable unless you have enough room for your toes. Perhaps a Wide size would work, but since I don't take Wide sizes in other brands (Salomon, Merrell, Asolo), I'm concerned that Wide Renegades would be too loose in the heel. If you do a lot of longer hikes (over 8 miles), you might find these boots hurt your toes.

Rated5out of5byIfromGood boot for bad feet!I have bad feet, I am flat-footed with bunions. I like to do extended back-packing trips but my feet would be thrashed at the end of the day. I returned my previous expensive boots and tried several different types of boots at REI, went home with the Lowa Renagades. I was excited that they came in a wide width. I've put about 20 miles on them so far and I have no foot pain! They don't get too warm, which was part of the problem with the last boot. I haven't tried them with a heavy pack yet, but fingers crossed!
