ATR by LOWA

Maximum comfort combined with minimum weight are essential when it comes to ultra-long distances, because the running shoes take over, at the very latest, when legs start to tire and feet begin to hurt. So too the FORTUX Ws, equipped with the special LOWA® TRAC® sole system consisting of an outsole made of grippy rubber and a partic­ularly pronounced DYNEVA midsole offering a high rebound effect over the entire length of the shoe. The slightly curved rocker construction helps to ensure the best possible comfort when running dynamic laps. The one-piece upper elim­inates unne­cessary seams and thus the risk of friction points. Combined with the REPTEX® SPORT PU coating, this also makes the shoes more durable. A light-weight, seam­lessly engineered tongue provides a unique combination of comfort and breath­ability. Padded all round for maximum comfort.

LOWA x GORE-TEX – Nature Clean-Up

Nature provides us with all sorts of unique oppor­tunities to experience unfor­gettable adventures and enjoy very special moments. More and more people are making a conscious decision to get back in tune with nature. But the decision by more and more people to get back in tune with nature also results in a greater and greater impact on the envir­onment. You hear words like “awareness” and “mind­fulness” a lot in discussions about this trend – but what exactly do people mean when they use them? An example: The practise of taking your trash home with you after a tour now comes second nature to many people. Such steps, no matter how tiny they may seem, can be the key to a mindful and sustainable outdoor lifestyle. But if you look around outdoors, you will certainly see many places that certainly have room for improvement.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for FORTUX Ws 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.

Especially during an ultra-trail marathon, every little bit of comfort counts, and the FORTUX Ws has plenty of it to offer. Thanks to its excellent cushioning, the additional padding on the upper and the high level of comfort, this trail runner is truly predestined for the long haul. When the last few kilometres to the finishing line remain to be conquered, ambitious ultra runners can rely completely and utterly on the new FORTUX Ws shoe.

The LOWA® TRAC® sole system and the sticky rubber compound provides guar­anteed traction, in wet or dry conditions.

Midsole

100%
EVA

The acronym “EVA” stands for “ethylene-vinyl acetate”. It corresponds to an elast­omeric polymer that is used to make plastic materials. The EVA material creates soft and flexible qualities. It is primarily used in the production of shoe and shoe midsoles to provide step cush­ioning. Various degrees of rigidity can be achieved on the basis of the thickness employed.

Insole

Approx. 90%
Poly­urethane (PU)

Poly­urethane (PU) is a soft plastic that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties and is usually used in the midsole as a result. Through the use of PU, the soles become light­weight and func­tionally flexible.

Approx. 10%
Fabric

Our natural and synthetic fabrics facilitate optimal warming and moisture management with the help of their usage-specific char­ac­ter­istics. Thanks to their structural design, they are smooth and make our products extremely comfortable.

Approx. 10%
Mesh

Mesh is a material that consists of many evenly spaced holes. It is usually made of polyester or nylon and basically a lattice-like material that is created by interwoven threads. Thanks to its special design, the man-made fibre is partic­ularly permeable to air, has special moisture-regu­lating qualities and is easy to care for, breathable and crease-resistant.

Upper material

100%
Synthetic

Our synthetic fabrics made of such plastics as nylon, polyester, polypro­pylene and elastane (Lycra) are primarily used as design elements and protection for the upper due to their abrasion resistance and tear strength.
