Lowa’s footwear has the Best Hiking Boots for Men and the Best Hiking Shoes for Women. The workmanship is a step above it’s competitors. As you’ll see on this page and my About Page I have seen them in action in some very rugged terrain. Over my many years of Hiking the rugged mountains of Arizona, Especially the Sedona area. Which receives nearly 3 Million visitors per year, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many of these visitors that come into our town  by buses to see the Beautiful Red Rocks, and the Incredible Oak Creek Canyon adjacent to down town Sedona.

One of the things you notice as a hiker, are those people coming off these many buses and their footwear. Not only do you see their Footwear, but you get a pretty good idea which area they may be hiking . The Best Waterproof Hiking Boots usually head down to the fast moving Oak Creek, and it’s hiking paths. Not only is the best hiking boot seen here, but Best Hiking Sandals as well. Another words, with this many visitors coming to see the scenery you see a pretty wide gambit of Hiking Footwear. Many Professional Athletes, and Movie Stars are avid hikers, and are common place here.

I like to think with their monetary backgrounds, they surely spend Top Dollars researching the Best Hiking Shoes available. I started doing my first Hiking Shoes Reviews back in 1992 when I first visited Sedona, Arizona.  It was mostly by News Letters back then. Let’s talk about some of Lowa’s Great Features…

Features That Make  These The Best Hiking Shoes,  Leather Upper, Lightweight Midsole, and
Vibram Outsole

The Renegade’s nubuck leather upper securely holds the foot in place, reducing strain on the toes during downhill sections. Its Monowrap midsole technology reduces overall boot weight, while providing extra cushioning and lateral stability. A rugged Vibram outsole and thick, nonslip rubber lugs make these boots ideal for hiking, light backpacking, and other outdoor activities where you need traction and grip. This shoe is built on gender-specific, men’s and women’s lasts, for optimal fit and comfort.

Climate-Control Footbed Wicks Away Moisture

The Renegade boot features a climate-control footbed which keeps your feet cool, dry, and blister free. Perforations in the boot’s lining allow air to circulate and wick moisture away from your foot, minimizing friction and fatigue.

Waterproof GORE-TEX Keeps Feet Dry

Renegade boots with the GTX designation–including the Renegade II GTX LO and Renegade GTX Mid–feature breathable, waterproof GORE-TEX lining that reduces hot spots so your feet stay comfortable in warmer temperatures as well as cold, wet conditions. Renegade boots with the LL designation feature buttery-soft glove leather lining that molds to the contours of your feet for exceptional comfort.

Stabilizing Shanks and Derby-Style Lacing

These hiking boots feature a full-length nylon shank for extra stability on rugged terrain. Also, the derby-style lacing on the Renegade Mid boots ensures a customized fit for a wide variety of feet. That’s why you hear so often, they are the Best Hiking Boots for Women.
