I have Renegades and love them. They don't have to fit like a glove like most other boots to stay on, and they have a separate piece for the heel bulb that prevents rubs that other boots create. They do have two flaws. Since they not solid, dirt and mud can get in, and they can get stuck on things like tree roots as I found out the hard way. They do use wires, so those can break if yanked on hard enough. Overall I love them, but they are more for a working in good footing boot than a trail blazing boot.
You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
