Excellent arch support

The Renegade GTX Lo uses Lowa’s Monowrap Support Frame, a feature that makes the shoe more supportive without adding more weight. Lateral stability is also augmented, thanks to this frame. Cushioning and arch support are further improved by the gear’s ATC footbed.

The Lowa Renegade GTX Lo owes its style and lightness to its nubuck leather and fabric upper. It has overlays that grant resiliency to the shoe against abrasive elements. A Gore-Tex lining is embedded within the upper to seal out water and allow moisture to escape.
