I sought out these boots because they come in B width. I have worn three pair of LL Bean Cresta hikers for over the past 20 years. These Lowa boots are equally comfortable, but are lighter weight.

The Lowa Renegade GTX is the most disappointing boot I have ever tried to walk/hike in. I have a considerable amount of hiking experience, mostly in the Rocky Mountains. Over the years I have owned a number of hiking boots (including a great pair of Lowas). The boots have ranged in price from expensive to moderate and were made by various well known boot manufacturers. For me the Lowa Renegade GTX raises the question of when does a boot turn into something other than a hiking boot? In my mind this boot has crossed the line from a hiking boot into something else. In making this boot light weight ankle support is seriously compromised, the standard issue insole that comes with the boot is so thin you can feel the lugs on the sole of the boot through it. The boot lace eyelets will chew a hole in your foot because the material the uppers are made of is high tech but very thin. This is a boot for casual wear and not a serious hiking boot.

I bought these boots not to do extensive hiking in, but because I have an advanced tendon problem in my foot, and even with my custom orthotics, my foot needs a lot of ankle support that I can't get in an athletic shoe. These are perfect! Comfortable right out of the box and a great, sturdy shoe.

Love these boots. Both my husband and I bought a pair- both of us have feet issues, plantar fascia, arch pain, etc. He has worn work boots everyday, typically Justin or RedWing, and he says these are the best boots he has ever had. I agree. Nice fit around heel and no sore areas. Did replace the insoles with green Superfeet for more arch support.

I have never before been able to wear a pair of boots, right out of the box, all day long! Put them on & went for my 2 mile walk. Felt great! Thanks Lowa.

My pair arrived the day before we left on vacation, and I did 10 miles in them the first time I took them out of the box. (I did replace the insoles with Superfeet first). Have worn them on several more hikes since and will take them down North Kaibab and up Bright Angel soon. Good support, good traction, very comfortable. I generally wear size 11, but because my feet tend to swell a little, I ordered these in a size 12, and they're perfect.

Very comfortable. The wides are just a little bit narrower than my usual New Balance 4E, and that is a good thing. I am a landscaping contractor and for almost twenty years have tried different boots with mixed success. So far these rank near the top. We'll see how long they last as I put them through more than most hikers would, but I'll pay more for boots that fit well any day.

So far I've only worn the GTX casually (probably 15 miles) to break them in although that wasn't necessary and they have been comfortable from the start. My feet are sensitive to pounding, so I upgraded to Montrail insoles and the cushioning is now the best I've ever experienced. The tab on the back to pull the boot on is skimpy, but the boot doesn't really require it to go on with ease. The tab design prevents your pants from hanging up on the back of the boot, unlike so many others. So far, great.

I needed a lighter leather boot with good ankle support for high desert canyon hiking. My feet are big, wide and hard to fit but these boots felt great from the start and also were easy to break in. They cost more but I believe the quality is there. The color and width I wanted were not in stock but Zappos ordered them in and notified me by email when they became available. Customer service was top notch as usual.

The best quality shoes I've ever had. I expect them to last many years. They are made by craftsmen in Europe, not by cheap Chinese labor. You pay for what you get. I will be buying from them again in the future as I am happy to pay extra for quality.

I have a long narrow foot. These shoes fit well but had to get one size larger than I normally take. I would consider the brand again.

Excellent boots. Top quality and attention to detail. I hike the Appalachian Trail, and these are light but solid. They have enough cushion with adequate flex and good traction. No hot spots or foot pain.

Zappos is wonderful to deal with. This is my second pair of boots we have purchased through them. These were for my son, size 13, hard to fit feet. Excellent online chat and support. Next day delivery. Fit was true to size. Great boot, great price, great service. I will definitely shop with them again.

These shoes are the best. They fit right out of the box and I felt were true to size. I have about 300 miles on them so far and still doing great. Have done as much as 30 miles in 10 hrs. On timed events with no problems. Would like to try a pair of the low hikers next.

This is the second pair of Lowa's my husband has owned. (He wore the first pair out -- we hike a lot.) These are sturdy, true to size and an all around good day hiking boot.

This is the second pair of these I have bought. I can\'t say enough good things about these boots! They are incredibly comfortable, light, breathable (good for summer\/winter) I have worn these in -10C in the snow, and hot weather in the wet...I just love them. I am a 10E and the US size 11\'s are perfect.

Having to search for a great boot in a size 14E is very hard. This one was true to size, comfortable with a Thorlo hiking sock worked wonderfully while climbing Castle Peak 14er, through the stream crossings,kicking steps up the snow slopes and the vibram sole is very effective on the rock climbing.

This is an excellent hiking boot. Unfortunately, many manufacturers have their products made in China now. The quality has suffered greatly. If you want quality, go with Lowa.
