After a couple of months, my feet started getting wet when it rained. I thought the Gore-Tex had worn through, but the strange thing was that only the soles of my socks were getting wet. Upon closer examination, I found that the Vibram sole was starting to wear through at the heel and mid-feet, exposing the foam mid-sole, and allowing water to enter through the bottom of the boots. It turns out that this Vibram sole is either too thin or too soft to provide any sort of longevity to this boot.
After six months of casual use (about 200 miles of light day hiking), the soles are completely worn through! If the boots had failed because of rough use, I could accept it. I believe that these boots failed because the manufacturer sacrificed durability for comfort. If you can afford to replace your hiking boots every few months, then the Lowa Renegade would be a great boot for you. Unfortunately, I can't!
I own several pairs of other top quality boots including a few Zamberlans. Since I already have a few bomb proof heavy duty backpacking boots I picked these for light duty; easy trails, moderate climbs and short walks. I found these shoes to be exceptionally comfortable. So comfortable in fact as I'd say they're more Uggs than rugged outdoor footwear as they favor comfort over all out performance. If that's a trade your willing to make, you won't be dissapointed as they still offer excellent support and protection from rain and debris keeping feet dry and safe.
Upper construction is quite good as well. The double stitched leather components hold up with no seperation of stiching and tend to be abrassive resistant on par with most nubuck offerings. The leather also breathes well and feels rather light on your feet. I also appreciate the solid hardware allowing fast and easy lacing.
You soon realize that the Renegades key to success is there blend of comfort and flexibility. It also becomes easily apparent that this is achieved through the use of a very soft, flexible Vibram outsole. This sole allows easy flexing and increased mobility.Read more ›
This seemingly comfortable boot is plagued by poor quality and durability. The rubber at the front of the boot started separating from the leather at less than 100 miles of use. It is cracking, crumbling, peeling, and it looks like the whole thing may detach with a little bit more use. The pictures are after our last hike, at approximately 125 miles in 8 months of use. My husband doesn't like hiking, so it's not like he is some bushwhacking pioneer exploring the rugged backcountry. We only hike on established trails (some on rocky terrain), and he used these boots for day hiking and a few overnight trips (with relatively light ~20lb pack). Apparently this rugged "all-terrain" boot can't handle that. I expected much more mileage out of a $225 pair of boots.
I contacted Lowa regarding the warranty, and they asked me to send it to them for inspection. Without a guarantee that it would be covered by warranty, I didn't want to waste the money shipping it to them, so I returned them to REI where I got them.
Based on this experience, I can only conclude that these boots are meant for hikes on flat, dirt trails with little to no rock...basically trails you can walk with a pair of flip flops. If you can do without the ankle support, I recommend you ditch these boots for a pair of trail runners - 1/3 the price, much lighter, and will last you longer than this piece of junk.
