I dunno, I have had a dozen of pairs of Lowa shoes/boots over the last several years, love them all. I read one review of these before buying and they guy said they were the most uncomfortable shoe he's ever worn. I scoffed and bought them because I liked the looks of them. But he was right. These are extremely uncomfortable. I tried them six or eight times and had to take them off after an hour. It's not the fit. There's something funky going on with the soles. Feels like standing on concrete for hours. Very disappointed.

I bought these boots last summer and day hiked in Bryce Canyon for about 5 days. Hikes were only a couple of hours long each day. The heels on both boots started wearing away to the point where one can see the underlying layer. I used to be a LOWA boot buyer but I'm wondering about the quality of their products. I've been hiking since 1998 and I've never had a pair of boots wear out so fast with such little activity.

I used to work for REI in softgoods where I sold foot ware and specifically, this boot. Having a little bit of a medical issue (bone spurs) in one of my feet and after trying on and "testing" a lot of boots, this one fit me the best and was the most comfortable. So, why my low rating? I purchased my boots from a local retailer, JAX Outdoors, in the same size and style I had known was the best for me. Major, major problems with this boot after very light hiking on a non-rugged terrain in my home turf of Fort Collins, CO... and walking in these boots. The right boot has significantly less padding around the ankle than the left boot does. it digs in. Left boot feels like a dream and fits great with no friction or rubbing on my ankles. Arch support, really poor so I did buy inserts and that's a simple solution to that problem. So, contacted the retailer, took the boots back in person after wearing for less than two weeks, no visible wear, and the manager, Meghan at JAX actually argued with me saying "my excessive wear broke down the padding in the boot." She then said LOWA is really iffy as to what type of warranty support they provide. Both BS answers. I'm returning these boots and starting over again. Not worth it. LOWA had no response on my request for customer support for them either. These are higher priced boots and the level of construction has declined from this one highly respected company.

Boot has very pointy toe box and somewhat intrusive arch supports. Size 7 was right in length but pointy toe box pressed hard on my big toe. Boot is comfortable around ankle. Size 7.5 was too long but even so, toe box pressed my toes. I returned them.

Worst performing boot of all time. I bought these boots before a world-class hiking trip to Tenerife in the Canary Islands. While the scenery defies description, I was unfortunately more focused on not breaking my neck. I suspect my Toms and some bedroom slippers would have had at least as much traction as these cheap soles that felt like walking on plastic. To add insult to injury (and possibly criminal liability) Lowa scams an extra $40 or so bucks out of buyers for the great Gortex scam. To suggest that these boots are suitable for anything outside of a level fire road is setting hikers up for serious injury. If Gortex was actually useful in keeping feet dry, I'd still choose not breaking my neck over having dry feet. There was literally no surface, dry or damp (I cringe to think what would have happened in any condition that actually came close to "needing" Gortex), where these boots can be trusted to perform. I slipped and slid across one of the world's most gorgeous hiking venues, sustaining mostly superficial injuries, with the exception of whatever it is that I pulled behind my knee. I returned them immediately to Adventure 16 upon my return and recommended that they take them off the shelves before someone gets seriously injured, or worse. Shame on Lowa. Worst. Boots. Ever.

I have worn this same shoe in the same size before, but this shoe felt too tight in the toe area. I need to return. It is a well built shoe and my last pair lasted 4 years.

Nice looking shoe but felt a lot wider than expected, and I tried the narrow width. Great shoe if you have really wide feet. I can't give it an overall great review because of that. It's a solid boot overall, but you probably can do better at a cheaper price. I like the Oboz better.

Lowa makes an incredibly comfortable and cushioned footbed that I have in a pair of Lowa shoes that I purchased. I was hoping to get another one or two of those footbeds, but this is not the one. This is just a thin footbed with no cushion and not at all worth the price. I'm returning and still hoping to find the one I want.

10.5 W a little narrow for me... I usually wear a 9.5W-10W. I still have an older pair of these Lowas in great condition...I just wanted a back up pair before they changed them :)

I am a woman with wide feet, and I used to fit into men's Lowa Renegades in size 8.5 regular, but this time when I bought new ones I had to buy them in wide. They also seem stiffer than in the past, but that may just be because I was used to my broken-in pair. Overall, These are great boots that usually last me a couple of years with moderately heavy use. I keep coming back to Lowa Renegades becasue they're good quality and fit well.

Having a narrow foot, finding boots in a B width can be a challenge. This is my second pair of Lowa Renegade GTX Mid since after having them resoled twice, the inner sole has finally worn out. They are comfortable out of the box, no break-in required. A great boot!

I have a very hard time finding shoes that fit, however, these boots fit like a glove. I ordered a size 9, my usual size and they fit perfectly. I wore them around the house the day they arrived and I have nothing but praise for these boots. I will be taking them hiking in Utah shortly, but I have 100% confidence that they will be everything I need.

These are fabulous boots. Right out of the box they felt great on my feet. Size and width were accurate and the blue color was just as pictured. I also ordered a pair of Keen boots just like hiking shoes I already own. I ended up keeping the Keens but only because they were lower on the ankle and I felt I would adjust to them better than the higher Lowa ankle. I am not a seasoned hiker, just average but going on a couple of trips later this year. Someone who hikes more would love the Lowa boots.

I have narrow feet so it is difficult finding hiking boots to fit. I saw that these Lowa's came in narrow widths so decided to try them. They are very well made! Expensive but worth it for me. I am a true size 6.5. Normally I would order a half size larger in an athlete shoe, but went with the 6.5 narrow. The length is prefect, and so is the width. They seem to wrap my foot so I expect them to be good up/down hills. The foot box could be a bit wider, but it still works for me. The boots are a little stiff, which I expected due to being a very stable shoe, so allow a break in period. Wore them around the house for a day, then outside walking on dirt path for an hour today. Excellent service from Zappos, as always!

If you want soft Hush Puppy type feel this is not for you. The feel, while solid, provides excellent comfort if you are on them all day. This is the most well made, durable shoe I have ever purchased. They are worn continuously in water, salt, mud, snow, on the construction site and in the woods. After a year, no shoe has taken this abuse without coming apart. I bought a second pair before they are discontinued.

Love these boots; spent a week breaking them in around my neighborhood, and they were comfortable from day one. I love that they’re slim and stylish enough to wear around town.

Review by husband... Got these shoes to replace two others - a pair of hiking boots and shoes I use on wet days to walk our dog. I intentionally went up a half-size because these will normally be worn with thick, wool hiking socks. Plenty of room in the toes but the "laceless" design allows them to be comfortably snugged up below the ankle. Going hiking in Big Bend National Park in a couple of weeks so I'll either update or write a new review after multiple days of hiking.

I bought these boots to replace a pair I have worn out. I have bought 5-6 pairs of the same boot. But Lowa has lowered the quality by reducing the thickness and rigidity of the sole. Unfortunately it is no longer a hiker’s boot. Therefore I am returning them.

I have bought approximately 6 pairs of these boots over the years, and just recently opened my latest pair. Unfortunately, Lowa has dramatically reduced the thickness of the sole. It is no longer as supportive as it once was. Now the GTX is more of a casual boot than a day hiker’s boot. Sorry that they made this change to a previously excellent product.

I have a long, narrow foot and Lowa always seems to fit me quite well. I have only had their full leather models in the past and thought I would try something different. This shoe is incredibly comfortable (and nice and lightweight) when you're just standing still or walking on a flat, developed surface but once I tried to simulate my daily hike (in my living room), I could feel my foot sliding around. It was clear these were going to give me very little support compared to previous Lowas I've had. I tend to like a shoe that hugs my foot so this pair was not the right overall fit for me. The shoelace set up was quite convenient (albeit a little strange) but the laces on my last pair of Lowa's broke long before the shoes needed to be retired and if that happened on these, I wasn't going to simply be able to find substitute laces.
