Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The boots were very comfortable and seemed to offer adequate ankle support. They were fairly light. I like the lace system. Unfortunately within the first month the upper part of the sole began to separate from the lower part. It didn't seem to get worse and I figured it was just a somewhat annoying appearance issue. After seven months the bottom part of the sole separated further and rendered the boots unusable. I have included a picture of the damaged boots.
I tried to return them to amazon but I couldn't do it through their automated return system. I contacted the manufacturer. They wanted me to ship the boots to them on my dime and wait while they evaluated the boots, they said based on their evaluation they would replace them or give me a discount on a new pair. I contacted amazon again and they agreed to send me a new pair of boots. Thanks Amazon! Five star review for amazon, 2 for the boots. I'll update with how the new pair lasts.
Not nearly as good as my last Lowa boots. Sadly Lowa discontinued the mid-rise I purchased from REI around 8 years ago......they were a much better design. The old ones worked perfectly right out of the box......never got a blister, or did they ever damage my feet in all the years I used them....and boy did I use them. Every day, 5 days a week, on and off rock ballast in a train yard and on commuter train tracks. I used them until they wore out! Then I bought these GTX's.....they seem to be made well so far.....as far as materials and build. But as a general purpose light hiking boot? Not even close to my old pair. I have already lost two toe nails since Feb. 2015 on light to medium level trails on the same foot......not acceptable. That tells me Lowa is not consistent in their quality from style to style and that their lasts.....wherever they are made.....aren't the same. Sadly, I feel I wasted my money, and am inclined not to use these to anywhere the same degree...
The Lowa Renegade GTX are a very popular boot and after receiving my new pair yesterday it was plain to see why. The first thing was to try the fit..and it was just right. A little roomy with an average sock but just perfect with a thicker hiking sock. The craftsmanship is outstanding, the materials are outstanding. I'm very happy that there was large selection of colors for this model. Amazon delivery was on time. The downside to this is the insoles. I wore them around the house for a couple of hours and I began to feel the edges of the insoles. They are not a good fit nor are they well made. It seems Lowa expects users to toss the insoles and replace them with aftermarket insoles. I wish I had known that the insoles on this boot were poorly made and fit. Otherwise I would have rated 5 star.
