ALPINE PRO GTX

On solid footing for adventure ALPINE PRO GTX

Sometimes, you will face Alpine chal­lenges that seem quite literally insur­mountable. To conquer them, you have to rely on two things: your knowledge of your own limits and the right moun­tain­eering boot. The ALPINE PRO GTX is definitely one of the most popular Alpine boots for those with high demands and who want a lighter athletic boot. In designing this boot, LOWA addressed the widest range of needs and wishes. Comfort, for instance, which has been achieved by redesigning the midsole. The partic­ularly flat construction provides even more secure footing. Contact with the surface feels much more tactile. The shortened toe cap brings the foot much closer to the rock – a feature that produces optimal power transfer – even on steep terrain. When conditions get really tough, the redesigned Vibram®-Alpin outsole provides the support that climbers need. It includes integrated cush­ioning and an anatomic footbed for a problem-free tour experience.

  • Why do we have to take the high road?

    High-altitude tours belong to the Olympian class of moun­tain­eering. During tours like these, moun­taineers set off from the valley, take hiking paths, cross rock-covered terrain and trek through snow before reaching steep ice and firn flanks. High-altitude tours call for orientation skills, experience, climbing ability and sure footing cross alpine terrain. The right equipment is an absolute must for such tours. During high-altitude tours, moun­taineers are part of a roped party or group and face all sorts of different terrains. They have to find their own way on snow, ice and rock.

    “Nowadays we can still experience a world in high mountain regions that is so elemental and vibrant that it arouses both utter amazement and fearful humility in us.”

    • Insu­lation
      LOWA’s expedition boots are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX or Prim­aLoft®.

    • Torsional stability
      If you’re on an extended tour or lugging relatively heavy loads, you need secure footing. This is why high-altitude boots offer excep­tional torsional stability and give wearers firm footing even when they are carrying a full load.

    Why do we want to go up there?

    No matter whether you are talking about an outdoor sport climbing facility or multi-pitch alpine climbs – climbing exudes an allure, everywhere and at every level of difficulty. Strength, technique, agility and balance are critical factors in determining whether you can cover a route or not. Usually, a climber attempts a set climbing route on a rock face or in the climbing gym. To prevent falls, the climber is generally secured by a rope held by a climbing partner.

    Simon Gietl Pakistan

    “Rock climbing not only enabled me to realise I had a passion for the mountains, it was also a voyage of self-discovery.”

    Simon Gietl | LOWA PRO Team

    • High-friction sole
      A good sole for a climbing shoe will produce a high degree of friction and and thereby perfectly mould the shoe to the surface of the rock or climbing wall.

    • Fit
      For the wearer to be able to stand on the narrowest of edges, the shoe must perfectly fit and optimally encase the foot.

    • Generalist
      Routes taken in climbing often vary signi­ficantly. For the shoe to perfectly meet every challenge, it should be designed with a broad range of uses in mind.

  • Why do we look up and not down?

    Via ferrata are iron routes built on mountains. The route is usually well marked with a permanently installed steel cable. It’s a source of great adventure. Fixed steel pegs and ladders are used in places that are too steep or rock faces that lacks sufficient structure. In addition to normal via ferrata equipment, climbers need the right footwear.

    “Taking on a via ferrata for the very first time was a completely new, amazing and great experience for me. When it comes to the equipment you need, you realise pretty quickly just how important the right footwear is.”

    Johannes | LOWA Key account manager Germany

    • Generalist
      As a rule of thumb, a good via ferrata boot is a generalist. After all, the route covers not just steps carved into rock and ladders, but also classic mountain trails, meadows and hiking paths.

    • Torsional stability
      Climbers who are taking long tours or have to cover difficult passages need secure footing. This is why via ferrata boots offer excep­tional torsional stability and give wearers firm footing even when they are carrying a full load.

VIBRAM® ALP TRAC® Your connection to the earth

The ALPINE PRO GTX comes equipped with a Vibram® sole. The Italian sole manu­facturer has been one of the leading brands of high-quality soles for many years.

The performance sole VIBRAM® ALP TRAC® is designed espe­cially for alpine conditions. The large “climbing zone” on the sole tip enables wearers to move precisely as they manoeuvre their way up sheer rock faces. The stud arrangement ensures that any dirt that accu­mulates in the sole of the footwear will be shaken loose while the boot wearer is walking.

VIBRAM® ALP TRAC®

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The ALPINE PRO GTX 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.

“The GORE-TEX details on my shoes are extremely important for my exped­itions and mountain tours, as I am on the move in extreme areas of the mountain. A good shoe climate very much depends on the level of waterproof protection and breath­ability, guards against frostbite and at the same time offers wearing comfort. I think that is important for all of us!”

The Performance collection The devel­opment of a high-performance line

When LOWA sits down to develop its line of Alpine boots, the company consults with the best profes­sional moun­taineers in the German-speaking world. These ambitious mountain athletes know exactly what counts during extreme high-altitude tours, on via ferrata and during far-off exped­itions. The LOWA PRO Team advises our specialists in the Devel­opment Department in its work to create footwear that perfectly meets the athletes’ needs. The result of this work is a new line that delivers top performance on the mountain. The models have become much more athletic and lighter. Over the past few years, a number of excep­tional LOWA boots have been developed in the “performance” segment during countless meetings with athletes and testing events.

X-LACING® To ensure that nothing slips …

As a result, the tongue is located where it should be – without any slippage or pressure points: This is what X-LACING® tech­nology of the ALPINE PRO GTX is all about. This special lacing system secures the tongue both vertically and hori­zontally. Because the lacing system gains inde­pendence from the height of the instep, the design is perfect for any type of foot. This tech­nology ensures that the pressure of the laces is trans­ferred not just to the hooks but to the tongue as well.

CLOSE TO THE GROUND For direct contact with the ground

People who venture across Alpine terrain face many chal­lenges. Fields of loose rocks, rocky outcrops and rough terrain place the highest demands on footwear. For this reason, LOWA uses the tech­no­logies of CLOSE TO THE GROUND in the ALPINE PRO GTX to create a good feel on the surface. The sole is designed in such a way that the distance to the ground is kept to a bare minimum. The height minim­isation throughout the entire shoe creates a natural feel during chal­lenging tours and provides stable footing on uneven terrain.

LOWA FLEX® Flexible eyelets for more comfort

To add flex­ibility to each eyelet of the ALPINE PRO GTX, the lacing systems through which laces are threaded are affixed separately. These sections are made of soft leather trim or supple textile materials that prevent pressure points. Thanks to the flexible arrangement of the eyelets, the laces can be indi­vidually adjusted without producing any excessive pressure on specific areas. But the tongue maintains its optimum posi­tioning.

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.

Insole

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.

Approx. 40%
Non-woven fabric

Non-woven fabric is a collection of fibre of limited length, filaments or cut yarns. Used as a component/covering of feet beds, the layer of non-woven fabric absorbs the heat generated by the foot, creating a pleasant feeling of comfort even in cold weather.

Approx. 50%
Viscoelastic latex foam

Viscoelastic latex foam is made of a remarkable polymer that lends a special form memory to the foam. Once body heat or pressure is applied to the viscoelastic foam, the foam adapts exactly to these particular contours. This feature equally distributes pressure and eases stress on the feet.

Upper material
