    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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Stability
      To ensure sufficient grip during hikes, both the sole and the upper should be stable.

    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.”

Sole

LOWA® ELIKA

The heart of the LOWA® ELIKA sole is the technical profile that provides solid grip. The two-component PU midsole provides optimal cush­ioning on long tours while the distinctive heel edges add pleasure to descents. More …

An outsole designed by LOWA with an optimised rubber compound to provide good grip.

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. 40%
Polyester

Polyester is synthetic plastic fibre made from crude oil. In chemical terms, it is a polymer that can be processed into many different materials. Thanks to its chemical flex­ibility, polyester is light­weight, dries quickly, does not shrink and has the highest levels of tear and abrasion resistance.

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.

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.

Upper material

100%
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.

Lining material

100%
LEATHER LINING

The leather inner-lining creates cosy wearing comfort and a pleasant shoe climate. More …

Functions

Avoidance of unne­cessary stitches to reduce pressure points. More …

Footwear stiffness

The shoe is moderately stiff.
