    Why do we follow our own rhythm?

    Speed hiking is a more athletic form of hiking. Such hikes involve a rapid trek across chal­lenging terrain using poles and light equipment. The poles help hikers to stabilise their bodies and to provide a workout for their upper-body muscles. Like Nordic walking, speed hiking is fast-paced. It can also include alternating periods of running and walking.

    “As a paraglider pilot I appreciate shoes that fit comfortably when I am both hiking at pace and flying.”

    Chrigel Maurer | LOWA PRO Team

    • Lightness
      Weight is a critical factor for people who want to race across moun­tainous terrain. This is why LOWA’s speed-hiking shoes are really light.

    • Comfortable
      Comfortable footwear is essential for long distances covered on foot. This is why LOWA places such a high priority on exact fit, something that is perfectly designed to handle short or long strolls.

    • Cush­ioning
      Good shoe cush­ioning is necessary to create a pleasant feeling during each step a hiker takes. This ensures optimal comfort over a long period of time. For this reason, speed hiking shoes are equipped with LOWA DynaPU® – a special foamed material with optimal cush­ioning prop­erties.

  • Why do we prefer to explore nature on foot?

    A day hike lasts for less than 24 hours and leads back to the starting point. The tour can cover either moun­tainous or flat terrain. The primary aim is to experience nature. The hike is usually done with light backpacks, and its degree of difficulty can vary greatly.

    “Shoes with GORE-TEX are a must if you plan to spend a lot of time with children outdoors. And which children do not get a really big kick out of jumping straight into puddles? We parents can now stop worrying about wet feet.”

    Discovering the world together!

    Kinder­garten is the place where children generally between the ages of 3 and 6 spend the day during the school week and are playfully cared for and encouraged. Their time in kinder­garten is spent doing the widest range of activities that are performed indoors and outdoors in nature.

    “Children really put their shoes to the test when they play, romp around the play­ground or inquis­itively explore the world. This is true for kinder­garten, too. This is why I want my children to wear shoes that are snug and robust – and that they love, too.”

    Michael | LOWA Head of Marketing

    • Multi­func­tionality
      Into the shoes and out into the adventures. No matter whether the site is the woods, playing area, sandbox, swing or see-saw – children spend lots of time outdoors. Multi­func­tionality is the key here, the factor that ensures shoes are optimally equipped for every terrain and usage area.

    • 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.

    • Comfortable
      No matter what activity may be planned and how children intend to romp about, their shoes should definitely be comfortable. To ensure every day at kinder­garten becomes a complete success, LOWA places special emphasis on fit.

    Ready, set, play!

    No matter whether the site is a play­ground, playing area or athletic ground – children just want to have fun when they play indoors or outdoors in nature in any type of weather. They can play by them­selves or meet friends and enjoy some exciting adventures together.

      Off to school and the next playful adventure. No matter whether the site is a play­ground, woods, fields or an athletic ground – multi­func­tionality is the key here, the factor that ensures shoes are optimally equipped for every terrain and usage area.

    It’s off to school!

    Lunch is wrapped, rucksacks are packed, and now it’s off to school. At school, children and adolescents are taught knowledge and information that will prepare them for life after school. Their time at school is spent doing the widest range of activities that are performed indoors and outdoors in nature.

    “Every day is an adventure for my kids. These adventures naturally occur on the way to school and outside during recess. And, of course, on the play­ground after school. These activities really put our shoes to the test many times a day – and the shoes pass them with flying colours. Because the shoes are made in our European factories, I know that everything else will also be perfect. And this is exactly what I want to teach my children.”

    Matthias | LOWA CSO

    • Comfortable

    Why don’t we take the gondola?

    A mountain hike involves a tour in highland terrain. This is the easiest way to explore the mountains. In principle, mountain hiking is something for everyone. The tours frequently use forest trails or paths. The higher the altitude of the hikes, the greater the degree of difficulty and the greater the need for experience, preparation, fitness, grip and a head for heights. Mountain hiking is a basic form of mountain climbing. The transition is frequently seamless.

    “Whether it’s scouting, filming eagles or paragliding – I think there is abso­lutely no substitute for the natural envir­onment of the mountains. We only have this one planet. Let’s take good care of it – for the sake of our children and grand­children.”

SUPPORT FRAME Comfortably framed

With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the KODY III GTX MID JUNIOR provides the very best comfort. This three-dimen­sional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and support it when the shoe wearer ventures across uneven surfaces. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.

  • Good guidance for the foot
    The foot is optimally nestled into the shoe thanks to the frame’s three-dimen­sional design.

  • Increased comfort
    The special midsole design ensures snug footing in the shoe. The foot is pleasantly cradled by the three-dimen­sional frame.

  • Light­weight
    The LOWA-MONOWRAP® is made of a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight material.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the KODY III GTX MID JUNIOR 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.

Midsole

100%
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. 70%
Poly­ethylene

Poly­ethylene is a semi-crys­talline and non-polar ther­mo­plastic resin that is, by far, the most widely used plastic in the world. Poly­ethylene is used in part as a component of man-made fibre/blended fabrics. It is used primarily to create comfort and insulate the foot from below.

Approx. 20%
Felt

Felt is a textile fabric that is made of disordered fibrous material that is difficult to separate. The textile fabric is char­ac­terised by its high elasticity and its insu­lating qualities. As a result, it is used in particular as a component in insoles and as an insu­lating divider.

Upper material

Approx. 80%
Suede leather

Suede leather comes from the flesh side of the hide. It has a looser fibre structure, a quality that creates a velvety surface and a light pile. Suede leather is partic­ularly durable and open-pored. Depending on the desired look, suede leather can remain untreated or be oiled or waxed.
