“I regard travelling not just as the route to a mountain. It’s my philosophy of life and an expression of my freedom. The shoes that I wear when I am travelling tell a story. They become symbols – and are all still on my shelf.”
— Stefan Glowacz | LOWA PRO Team
During the winter, the GORE-TEX membrane equipped with a cosy and warm lining (80% polyester and 20% wool) provides optimal comfort.
Vibram has been one of the leading brands of high-quality soles for many years.
TWO ZONE LACING
Thanks to the two-zone lacing system, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the footwear can be individually adjusted to the foot’s anatomy.
To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of is bonded to the upper in a technically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU-foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.
With the LOWA MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole provides the very best comfort. This three-dimensional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and supports it when the shoe wearer ventures across an uneven surface. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.
To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for female footwear have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.
Comfortable Comfortable footwear is essential for long distances covered by foot. This is why LOWA places such a high priority on exact fit that is perfectly designed to handle short or long strolls.
Cushioning Good boot cushioning is necessary to create a pleasant feeling during each step a hiker takes. This ensures optimal comfort over a long period of time.
Robust Bright sunshine or pouring rain – the weather doesn’t matter at all to people who like to head outdoors. That’s why LOWA boots are made of robust materials that provide the best comfort even in wind and weather.
