MALTA GTX MID Ws

Packed with the dna of an outdoor shoe. MALTA GTX MID Ws

The mid-cut shoe is much more than your everyday footwear as its distinct design elements, woven LOWA logo and the quilted fabric cuff clearly demonstrate. The outdoor DNA of the trendy lifestyle model is hard to overlook. Fortunately. In this case, the qualities of the casual shoe are certainly much more than skin deep. The torsionally stable design consists not only of robust leather in combination with a fused foil material, but also includes a directly injected midsole made of two different layers of LOWA DynaPU®. The outsole is also distinguished by its bidirectionally arranged stud profile. This creates the necessary cushioning, optimal grip and, above all, perfect wearing comfort. It is a functional overall concept, one that offers the flexibility required for daily use and the stability needed for short treks on terrain.

    Why do we prefer to explore the city on foot?

    A trip to the office or a few quick errands in the downtown pedestrian zone – many people live their lives in urban settings. The activities performed in a city can be multi-faceted. The range is broad: from work in the office, shopping trips or a sightseeing tour of a city at the weekend.

    • 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.

GORE-TEX Guaranteed weather protection

Guaranteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The MALTA GTX MID Ws is equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane. The innovative technology delivers optimal waterproof protection and breathability.

  • Permanently waterproof
    The membrane provides reliable waterproof protection. No matter what sort of adventure you may be planning, you can count on GORE-TEX technology to keep your feet pleasantly dry.

  • High breathability
    Designed with optimal breathability in mind, GORE-TEX shoes provide pleasant comfort even during intense activities. Water cannot penetrate the footwear, and moisture produced inside the shoe escapes through billions of pores in the GORE-TEX membrane.

  • Windproof
    The GORE-TEX membrane dependably fights off the wind and the weather. As a result, you can head off on a tour no matter what the weather is like.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of the MALTA GTX MID Ws 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.

  • Lightweight
    This process uses a plastic called polyurethane. It is a very lightweight foam padding.

  • Cushioning
    The plastic called polyurethane is a foam padding that has very good cushioning properties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • A wide range of design options
    Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multifaceted properties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.

LOWA DynaPU® Noticeable cushioning puts a spring in your step

The midsole is the leading contributor to the footwear’s rolling properties and cushioning. In the MALTA GTX MID Ws, this midsole is made of a specially developed plastic: LOWA DynaPU®. The special feature: It retains its restoring force even when it’s pressed together thousands of times. As a result, the finished boots will maintain their exceptional cushioning properties even after you have walked many kilometres in them.

  • Good comfort
    The special material development is characterised by good cushioning properties. As a result, walking comfort and rolling properties have been noticeably increased – even during long hikes.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for MALTA GTX MID 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.

Service & accessories

Available repairs

Seam repair

Right at the development stage, our footwear is designed in such a way that the seams for the different parts of the upper are equal to the demands placed on them. But even with the greatest of care, seams can of course still come apart. Torn or worn seams can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. Lisää

Heel lining repair

The heel lining is one of the parts of a shoe that are subject to the most stress. Even with quality materials, chafing and signs of wear can of course still occur. The heel lining for leather and GORE-TEX footwear can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. Lisää

Hook repair

Hooks, loops and eyelets are essential for lacing and putting on all types of footwear. Even with the biggest selection of material, individual parts can still break, tear or fall apart. Our service workshop can repair all that in house. Lisää

Cuff repair

Repairing the cuff required a lot of handwork, know-how and utmost care. First, the new edging piece is cut by hand and sewn onto the upper. In a second step, the worn material is removed and replaced with the new piece, ensuring that the necessary glueing and seams match the LOWA standards and nothing pinches on the cuff. Lisää

Replacement parts

Whether it’s new insoles, a speed-lace system, new laces or other replacement parts. Let us know what you need for your favourite LOWA footwear and we’ll send it to you. Lisää
