The LOWA Renegade II Mid GTX is a durable, waterproof, and fairly lightweight women's-specific boot for general trekking use. It offers many of the features of a heavier backpacking boot, including the leather upper, GORE-TEX® lining, mid-cut height for ankle support, and Vibram® rubber outsole, yet it weighs just 1110 grams per pair on average, while traditional leather backpacking boots often tip the scales around 1800 grams. The savings is thanks to the design of LOWA's PU MONOWRAP® injected midsole, which is reinforced with a skeleton-like full-length shank so that it remains supportive despite its lack of bulk.
