RedWing Heritage Boots Review by billy
So now that I’ve had these boots for about a month, I figured it’s time for me to weigh in. The Red Wing Heritage Boots are high quality boots. The leather just feels legit. I’ve got some other very nice leather boots and shoes and these boots surpass them all in leather quality. The leather is thicker, yet supple. The entire boot feels well-constructed. The stitching is top notch. The soles should last forever (c’mon, they’re Vibram!) and if they don’t they could easily be replaced. I’ve gotten compliments from both hipsters and true-blue working class dudes alike. The verdict is in: these boots are the real deal.

Lowa Renegade GTX Hiking Boot review by Gray:
I’m out 2 to 4 times a week birding and trail mountain climbing. Depending on terrain, weather, and miles I’ll wear Solomon Gortex trail shoes or Keen Targhee lightweight hiking boots. It was raining the last time I wore my Keens (two years old) and my feet got soaking wet and cold. I decided I had had it with sock type hiking boots and ordered the Lowa Renegade GTX Hiking Boot from Amazon, based primarily on waterproof, all-leather, and lightweight characteristics. I was worried about some of the comments about the boot being too narrow. When I put them on, wow, what a comfortable fit! With no breaking in, I wore them on a 6-mile hike up and back a mountain, and everything was perfect – no rubbing, no slipping going downhill, great traction, great support on rough terrain. These boots are so good, I now wear them on easy hikes, where previously, I used my Solomon trail shoes. Note: not appropriate for backpacking over rough trail or mountaineering.

RedWing 2409 Laceup Boots review by Curtis:
I have purchased many brands of work boots, and I always go back to Red Wing. The RedWing 2409 Laceup Boots are a great set of boots that you will love. I have had mine for a couple of weeks now, and they get better every day. The shipping was super fast, and I was able to buy them for $40 less than the local Red Wing store could sell them for.
Lowa Zephyr mid TF boot review by Doc
These boots are AWESOME. They are indeed the lightest pair of boots(summer Bates included) I have ever owned.(15 years and counting) I ordered the Lowa Zephyr Mid TF Hiking Boot
for the added water protection and my dogs didn’t really “sweat” in them. The laces provided were flimsy and didn’t last very long. Simple fix..take white “issue” laces-ask your supply and soak them in tea(you have limited resources downrange-those that have been will attest) and these laces still are in the boot to this day(almost a year out of country).”Break-In” time is virtually non-existent with these as well. I actually took a PT test in them(once) and they felt like sneakers(and yes, I passed). I have plantar fasciitis(read:flat feet) and between those and some good orthotics, I’ll probably order another pair for my next deployment. Unfortunately, LOWA is a German manufactuer so there is no NSN. (Cannot order via your supply chain) Bottom line:WELL worth the money. Only this time I’ll secure them BEFORE movement into theatre. And yes, order them a size larger as they are made in Europe so they tend to run a size smaller than what you’re used to in the US. (I only gave them 4 stars because of the laces issue.)
