Squirrel Pups and Salty Sea Birds

Image
Love these boots!

They've stood up to steady abuse from climbing trees and trudging through snow in the Canadian Yukon (looking for squirrel pups,) to working on rocky, salty seabird islands in Maine. They haven't failed me yet.

The best part is, when out for a night on the town, they look just fine with a pair of jeans. Here's to having only one pair of shoes! The Renegade GTX® is the best!

Horseshoe Mesa

I wish to thank you for an excellent pair of boots. Your Renegades are excellent. We hiked 6 days in the Grand Canyon and they saved my glass ankles on several occasions. Thanks for making my hike a wonderful experience.

This picture is a morning shot from my tent on Horseshoe Mesa. What a view!

Best Trekking Trips

Image
My best trekking trips with my best trekking boots.


I have been to Nepal for 3 weeks and then moved to Ukraine and continued my trekking in the Carpathian mountains. It was awesome unforgivable.


I have worn my Lowa boots almost 9 years on more than 30 trips. My boots are my best companions.

Scarlet Macaws and Howler Monkeys

Image
I have been wearing Lowa Renegades for over 15 years. They were my go-to field boots for conducting ornithological field research in southeastern Arizona desert grasslands.

Now that I am retired, I use them when my husband and I go on international birding trips. The first picture is one of me in my Renegades in the Nanciyaga Reserve, Veracruz, Mexico, after just seeing Scarlet Macaws, Great Curassows, and Mexican howler monkeys.



This photo is of me in my Renegades at the restored ruins of Monte Albán - South Platform, Oaxaca, Mexico. Both were taken during a trip in March 2017.

Mud Mucking in My Renegades

Image
From yesterday’s adventure – PINECREST CANYON – in UTAH!

Myself and Ellie, the Wonder Dog – who, clearly, does not love selfies.


We chased the mud. Without my waterproof Renegade GTXs – making it back to the trail would have been total misery.

We trudged a half-mile through run-off waters to get back to high-ground.

Thanks, LOWA!

Camino de Santiago

Image
These boots became my closest friend while hiking the Camino to Santiago, first 200 kilometers along the Pyrenees Foothills route and then over 800 kilometers on the Camino Frances.

They were, and continue to be, the best hiking boots I have ever had. Walking 25-30 kilometers a day is tough on the feet. Although I am 60, I really feel my Lowa's allowed me to cruise with much younger walkers.

Blister's cause many pilgrims to rest and heal for 2-3 days along The Way. Not me. I walked pain free for nearly 50 days.

I look forward to many more months of use with these terrific boots. I am just writing to acknowledge your company for an exceptional product.

Irkutsk, Russia… Siberia!

Image
From 2003 to 2016, my wife and I lived in a small city in the Al Buraimi desert in the United Arab Emirates. For 13 years we enjoyed an uninterrupted summer of swimming, short sleeves and sandals. It was fun while it lasted, but we felt we needed a bit of a change, so we applied for a job that could send us anywhere in the world.

We couldn’t believe it when we were offered a posting in Irkutsk, Russia… Siberia! 


Of course, we took it. The biggest challenge for us was to purchase a completely new warm, functional wardrobe to help us live in an environment that couldn’t be any more different from the one we were moving from.

Our contacts in Russia told us we really needed to be mindful of the footwear we planned on bringing. Not only did our shoes and boots have to keep our feet warm when temperatures dropped to -30 or more, but they also had to have a good tread as the sidewalks and streets are covered in snow and ice from October to April.

Luckily, my wife did a lot of research and, a…
