    Why do we spend our holidays in a sleeping bag?

    Your backpack is ready, and your hiking boots are tied. Your multi-day hike can begin. Such a hike is considered to be a tour that lasts for more than 24 hours. Hikers will generally sleep under the stars, in a shelter like a hut or in a tent.

    “You can really unwind during multi-day hikes. But you must have the right footwear if you want to have any fun at all.”

    Michael | LOWA Head of Marketing

    • 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.

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

    • 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 take on long distances.

    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.”

    Why don’t we find our answers within ourselves?

    Pilgrims take a journey to a holy or spiritual place. The pilgrim takes a journey that lasts for several days or even weeks – usually on foot. Pilgrimages are a part of many religions. Today, belief in God does not have to be the primary reason for the pilgrimage. The reasons can vary greatly. Many pilgrims want to forget about their everyday lives, make a key decision or get to know them­selves. No matter what reason may prompt an indi­vidual to undertake a pilgrim hike, it is not the destination that matters most. It is the experience-filled journey that counts for the pilgrim.

    Where do you really want to go?

    A long-distance hike usually leads through a variety of different regions and can be completed only during daily stages. Long-distance hikes very frequently involve at least 30 one-day stages and are the Olympic class of long hikes. The hiking routes cover hundreds of kilo­metres and frequently lead across national borders.

    • Good grip
      Good grip by the sole is partic­ularly vital when people venture out into weather char­ac­terised by a wide range of temper­atures and cover slippery and wet surfaces. This is why LOWA boots offer optimal traction for good grip.

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 PINTO GTX MID 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.

The VIBRAM® TRAC® LITE II has a multi­func­tional profile that includes a rubber compound and special sole design in the front and heel area. With the help of these features, it can take on the widest range of activities. More …

Proven Vibram® rubber sole from a high-quality provider from Italy.

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%
Full-grain leather

Full-grain leather offers the very best quality that leather has to offer. It consists of various types of leather whose grain side is processed on the outside, regardless of the strength of the natural grain of the animal. The qualities of the leather can be smooth, structured, grained, embossed or shrunk. Full-grain leather has open pores and may be used for many years if it is properly cared for.

Lining material

100%
GORE-TEX

Footwear equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane is reliably waterproof, windproof and breathable. More …

Functions

Holds the tongue in place with the help of the laces and prevents slippage in the process. More …

Footwear stiffness

The shoe is moderately stiff.

Service & accessories

Available repairs

LOWA boots sold in the MOUN­TAIN­EERING and TREKKING categories are designed in a way during the devel­opment phase that they can be resoled. This process will extend their service life and make a strong contri­bution to sustain­ability. More …

Seam repair

Right at the devel­opment stage, our footwear is designed in such a way that the seams for the different parts of the upper are equal to the demands placed on them. But even with the greatest of care, seams can of course still come apart. Torn or worn seams can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. More …

Heel lining repair

The heel lining is one of the parts of a shoe that are subject to the most stress. Even with quality materials, chafing and signs of wear can of course still occur. The heel lining for leather and GORE-TEX footwear can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. More …

Hook repair

Hooks, loops and eyelets are essential for lacing and putting on all types of footwear. Even with the biggest selection of material, indi­vidual parts can still break, tear or fall apart. Our service workshop can repair all that in house. More …

Cuff repair

Repairing the cuff required a lot of handwork, know-how and utmost care. First, the new edging piece is cut by hand and sewn onto the upper. In a second step, the worn material is removed and replaced with the new piece, ensuring that the necessary glueing and seams match the LOWA standards and nothing pinches on the cuff. More …

Replacement parts

Whether it’s new insoles, a speed-lace system, new laces or other replacement parts. Let us know what you need for your favourite LOWA footwear and we’ll send it to you. More …
