    Why do we prefer to explore an area on foot?

    A stroll is a relaxed outdoor walk. You can take a stroll in many different places: in the woods, in a park or in the city. Strolls are usually a form of relaxation. People take strolls to enjoy the sun, get some fresh air, to exercise or to simply experience a change of scenery. A walking cane frequently helps older people to take a stroll.

    “A stroll with children is always full of surprises and never boring. Climbing, running and balancing acts – all punc­tuated by chil­dren’s laughter.”

    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
      No matter what activity may be planned and how long the walk to school may be, pupils’ shoes should definitely be comfortable. To ensure that every school day becomes a complete success, LOWA places special emphasis on fit.

    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.”

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the DIEGO II GTX LO 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.

KIDS LAST Adapted to the anatomy of chil­dren’s feet

The model DIEGO II GTX LO is produced with a special chil­dren’s last. These lasts are not simply mini-versions of the lasts used for adults’ feet. They have been specially modified to reflect the anatomy of chil­dren’s feet and reduced in size. In addition, the height and width of the heel, toe and instep areas have been modified.

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 DIEGO II GTX LO, 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.

  • Good rebound effect
    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.

  • Light­weight
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a very light­weight foam padding. The result is a sole that offers the best form of comfort.

Approx. 75%
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.

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.
