LOWA Boots Men's Renegade Mid GTX Hiking Boot
You'll find comfort and support well suited to day hiking and short-haul overnight trips in the Lowa Renegade Mid GTX Hiking Boots for men. These boots are more than basic lightweight hikers; they are rugged for cross-country wear and flexible for efficient hiking.
The full nubuck leather uppers deliver exceptional durability, while the integrated waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex lining manages moisture from the inside-out. The perforated climate control footbeds enhance moisture management, cushioning feet and preventing blisters. Overall boot weight is low thanks to Lowa's polyurethane Monowrap Frame -- it adds the lateral ankle support that sets these boots apart from lighter duty boots without adding undue weight or bulk. Additional stability comes from the full-length, anatomical nylon shank and tough Vibram outsoles. The low-cut back fosters a good stride and reduces cuff friction.

First boot that fits in 66 years
I purchased Lowa Renegades for the first time late last year. I have a very high instep and it is hard for me to find shoes that fit well. These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. With my high instep I always need to purchase additional gel insoles to reduce impact on my brittle feet. With the Renegades I can use the insoles that come with the boot. This saves me a little money, which I need since the boots are above my comfort level in pricing. The remarkable thing about the Renegade Boots is that my wife wears the woman's renegade and finds them comfortable also. She has flatter feet and pronates mildly. Yet she wears the Renegade without additional insoles also. We are opposite foot types but still find the same boot to be a perfect fit. This has never happened. This may be obvious to most, but GTX stands for Goretex. Lowa also makes a Renegade LL which stands for leather lined. The leather ones are supposed to breathe better for those in hot dry climate as myself. Sizing and structure: I am 155 lbs 5'9". I normally wear a 9 or 9.5 in boots. I wear a 9 Wide in Lowa. I do light to moderate hiking usually carrying a camera bag 20 lbs or less. Mostly on rocky, sandy areas in the Southwest. The Renegades are considered level 4 boots on the Lowa scale. I translate this to mean light hiking boots. However the soles of the Renegades are stiffer than most "casual" hiking boots, more like backpacking boots. Great for rocky terrain. But if you carry a heavy pack or are on the heavier side yourself you might want to upgrade to a Lowa level 3 boot.
Deluxe hiking boots
These boots were recommended to me by an Altrec.com customer service person (Jason... I think). I explained my need for really solid, waterproof hiking boots that could handle the rigors of the Utah, off trail, back country during the cold winter months, as well as some of the sloppier times in spring and/or fall. I also communicated my flat feet (wider size) needs and explained my tendency to Merrell products. He recommended these Lowa boots - and he was right. They are a little pricey; however, anybody that hikes regularly will understand that the money is worth it to protect your feet. These boots only took 1 hike to break in (felt a little restricting on the heel on my first hike). I'm now about 8 hikes in to using these boots and my feet are dry, warm and comfortable tramping through 2 feet of snow, etc. The sole grip seems to be good and the ankle support is excellent.
