Welcome to the world of LO & WA

Thanks for coming. It’s nice to have you! You are currently in the LOWA chil­dren’s area, the home of our chil­dren’s mascots LO & WA and the peregrine falcon LOWINGO.

We also have no intention of keeping you from hearing the exciting stories contained in the LO & WA adventure books. You can download each previous edition here. What’s more, they are free of charge. There is just one more thing for us to say: We hope you have a great time while reading and getting to know our chil­dren’s mascots.

How are chil­dren’s shoes developed by LOWA?

When children play and romp about outdoors, the emphasis is firmly on having fun. Parents’ main priority is knowing that their children are equipped as well as possible, espe­cially when it comes to shoes. In collab­oration with Director of Paediatric and Adolescent Surgery at Klinikum Ingolstadt, Dr. Micha Bahr, and his family, LOWA has developed a model that combines all requirements – the LEDRO GTX MID JUNIOR and the LEDRO GTX LO JUNIOR.

What should parents keep in mind when they buy chil­dren’s shoes?

LOWA has always devoted a lot of product devel­opment effort to the chil­dren’s footwear segment. For example, a special last that provides more space in the toe area is used to make all chil­dren’s shoes. Children require this space at the front of their shoes to ensure the healthy growth of their feet. That’s because chil­dren’s bone tissue is not yet fully developed, and their ligaments are still signi­ficantly more elastic. They also experience consid­erably less pain, because their nerves have not yet matured.

Interview with Dr. Micha Bahr, Specialist for Paediatric Surgery and Manual Medicine

Chil­dren’s feet are not just the mini version of adult feet, they are much more exacting. That’s why LOWA has a special kids last that provi­des more space in the toe area. Child­ren require this space at the front of their shoes to ensure the heal­thy growth of their feet. That’s because child­ren’s bone tissue is not yet fully deve­lo­ped, and their liga­ments are still signi­fi­cantly more elastic. They also expe­ri­ence consi­dera­bly less pain, because their nerves have not yet matu­red.
