The Lowa Renegade GTX Mid is a classic favorite among our review team. These mid-weight hiking boots are Lowa's most popular style for women and won last year's Editor's Choice Award. This year, they are the winner of our Top Pick award for Durability and Water Resistance. Lowa boots are handcrafted in Slovakia and are held to a very high standard during their production. This is obvious when they hit the trails, as the Renegade's Monowrap technology keeps the foot stable and protected while keeping a very sleek profile. We found these boots to do well on the rugged trails of the Sierra, offering stability and comfort as well as unmatched durability and water resistance.
The Renegade Pro GTX Mid- Women's is a similar model from Lowa, but for $20 more you get a stylish leather trim, interior leather cuff, and retro-styled hardware.
