The Renegade weighs in at 735gms for a single boot.Another hobbit footed size 11 here, I have been all but living in renegades for the last few years and like thegimp I was wondering about a pair of the zephyrs as I am grubbing around salt water a fair bit so the non metal lacing would be handy. Width wise do they fit pretty much the same as the renegades?
Also are they noticeably cooler on the feet, they will be used in Britain in the summer so probably not much of an issue but it would be nice to hear how they stack up against the renegades?
The Zephyr weighs in at 625gms for a single boot.
I live in Texarrse where in the summer it gets up to touch a very humid 45C in east Texarrse and is dry and dusty in west Texarrse.
At the moment it is -4C and I am wearing the Renegades as they are warmer, and goretex.
The Zephyrs felt a bit larger/looser than the Renegades at first. It may be that as they are made from more fabric they felt looser, I do not notice it any more. I just sat myself down and tried both pairs on and they pretty much feel the same as to size/pressure, front to back and side to side.
I hate sweaty feet, the Zephyrs have done the job for me over the last two summers. Being more fabric they would let wet feet dry quicker.
