Do you have problems with walking boots because you have ‘wide’ feet ?

Well these boots from Lowa might be your solution. These are the well known Lowa Renegade GTX boots, with all the plus points that have made them very popular for many years, but with a wide last, giving more volume in the forefoot area.

As soon as you slip these boots on, the extra room at the front of the boot feels obvious to your feet. No more blister pads or rubbing corns! The Lowa Renegade Mid-Wide fit can help you walk further in comfort and confidence.

Renegade GTX boots are a lightweight, waterproof, highly breathable boot, that is suitable for hikes on groomed trails. They have a stable nubuck leather upper, with an innovative sole construction and a non-slip Vibram® rubber Evo sole.

If you are a regular walker with wider feet, these boots are designed for you.

Features

Nubuck Leather: This is a full grain leather that has been lightly sanded for a softer finish. It gives it a suede-like look. Nubuk can be oiled, waxed or left plain, depending on the desired look.

SPS System: LOWA proprietary technology in which strategically placed TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) inserts are placed in the PU (polyurethane) midsole. These visible harder TPU inserts create “zones” of support and literally guide the foot into a proper walking motion.

Climate Control System: This moisture management system keeps feet dry, protecting against blisters and pressure points.

  • A series of perforations, or holes, inside the boot’s cuff lining allows air to enter the boot lining whilst the walking movement pumps heat and moisture back out through the holes.
  • Moisture is pulled away from the foot and evaporates while

GORE-TEX footwear lining: A two layer lining material is laminated to the GORE-TEX membrane. This GORE-TEX Footwear System prevents water getting into the boot, but still allows your feet to breathe, an ideal situation in your boots, even in low temperatures, snow and the most adverse weather conditions.

I just love walking, have done since my first precarious steps in nappies. Being outdoors is definitely better than in, whatever the weather.
