Winter hikes Perfectly equipped for winter wonderlands.
“Winter hikes are something very special. You rarely run into anyone, and the natural sights you see are simply amazing. When I think about the footwear I need, comfort is naturally a priority. But the height of the upper and the lining material are also very important. When I set off on a hike through the snow, I’ll need a higher upper with an insulating lining. But if I’ll just be hiking through the woods, all I need is a normal MID-CUT boot with a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane.”
— Matthias | LOWA CSO
No matter whether you are scaling a steep mountain or strolling from café to café along chilly city streets of town – GORE-TEX footwear will always keep your feet pleasantly dry. Your footwear will always be waterproof and provide optimal breathability.
LOWA PU OUTSOLE
Made of polyurethane (PU), the LOWA outsole impresses users with a profile design that has been optimised with real-world challenges in mind. The strong combination of good cushioning behaviour and lightness turns the sole into an ideal footwear feature.
With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole provides the very best comfort. This three-dimensional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and supports it when the shoe wearer ventures across an uneven surface. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.
The lasts used for LOWA’s children’s footwear 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.
Insulation LOWA winter shoes are outfitted with insulation made of GORE-TEX warm lining or PrimaLoft®.
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.
