These boots are amazing! I am so excited that Moosejaw started carrying them (and in different colors!). I bought a pair of Lowa women's Renegade boots 7 years ago and they are only just now at the point where I should think of replacing them. Really, the only reason they are starting to wear down is because I didn't take good care of the leather the first couple years (sorry boots, I still love you!). They have been through hundreds of hikes in all sorts of hiking conditions and have never let me down! BUY THESE BOOTS!!!!
