    Why should we head out into the ice and snow?

    Mountains can still be explored on foot even in snowy and frosty conditions. The range of winter moun­tain­eering exper­iences extends from easy hikes on snow-covered forest roads and flat alpine meadows to summit tours and real high-altitude excursions where the technical challenge grows.

    “Climbing in the high mountains in winter – that’s my world!”

    Fritz Miller | LOWA ACTIVE Team

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

    • Good grip
      When people venture out into the cold or cover slippery and wet surfaces, it’s partic­ularly vital the sole offers good grip. This is why LOWA winter boots have optimal traction to create good grip.

    • Sole rigidity
      Anyone who is determined to climb high mountains in the winter will not get very far without crampons, snowshoes or mini-crampons. When such equipment is used, the soles of boots need to have a certain stiffness.

    Why do we dare travel to the far corners of the world?

    Remote areas and uncharted terrain: Exped­itions are trips of discovery and research that take people to remote or unex­plored regions of the world. In the Alps, such exped­itions frequently involve mountain climbing on heavily glaciated terrain that is difficult to manoeuvre across. But exped­itions on flat terrain also appeal to many adven­turers. These types of journeys usually pass through areas that are far from civil­isation and, as a result, lack such infra­structure as roads, hospitals and accom­mod­ations.

VIBRAM® DOLENT-ALPINE Precision climbing

The EXPEDITION 6000 EVO RD has a CLIMBING ZONE. This is a flat component in the front sole area that facil­itates easy climbs.

The dynamic sole design and a self-cleaning profile are the trump cards of the performance sole VIBRAM® DOLENT – ALPINE. The high-quality sole made by Vibram® has proven itself year after year in countless types of alpine boots.

VIBRAM® DOLENT

Prim­aLoft® 200 Comfort for the cold time of year

The {{PRODUCT NAME}} comes with high-quality synthetic fibre insu­lation with a 200 g/m² lining. Thanks to insu­lating performance that is comparable to that of down, the insu­lation keeps the wearer’s feet pleasantly warm during winter conditions.

  • Optimal warming performance
    Prim­aLoft® insu­lation offers an optimal mix of warmth performance, weight and volume. Its heat-retention qualities are comparable to those of good goose down. The fibres are so thin and soft that they flexibly adjust to the body’s form.

  • Water repellent
    Prim­aLoft® insu­lation is water repellent. The material retains its form even when wet. During production, the ultra-fine micro-fibres gain their water-repellent prop­erties in a special, fibre-based refining process. This special treatment prevents moisture from sticking to the fibres.

  • Excep­tional comfort
    Prim­aLoft® insu­lation is also extraordinarily comfortable. The very low fibre strength facil­itates good heat retention. The fibres trap more air with the same volume level, but can also be tightly compressed. This creates a high level of wearing comfort as well as excellent fibre recovery and long form stability.

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.

VIBRAM® DOLENT-ALPINE

The dynamic sole design and a self-cleaning profile are the trump cards of the performance sole VIBRAM® DOLENT – ALPINE. The high-quality sole made by Vibram® has proven itself year after year in countless types of alpine boots. More …

A specially constructed component in the area of the sole tip for precise performance during easy climbs.

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. 25%
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. 25%
EVA

The acronym “EVA” stands for “ethylene-vinyl acetate”. It corresponds to an elast­omeric polymer that is used to make plastic materials. The EVA material creates soft and flexible qualities. It is primarily used in the production of shoe and shoe midsoles to provide step cush­ioning. Various degrees of rigidity can be achieved on the basis of the thickness employed.

Approx. 45%
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.

Approx. 5%
Aluminium foil

Aluminium foil is the name used to describe a thin foil that is produced in a rolling process using the raw material of aluminium. Air-tight aluminium foil is primarily used in insoles as a layer of insu­lation that fights off cold from below and retains heat in the shoe.

Upper material

Approx. 80%
Fabric

Our natural and synthetic fabrics facilitate optimal warming and moisture management with the help of their usage-specific char­ac­ter­istics. Thanks to their structural design, they are smooth and make our products extremely comfortable.

Approx. 20%
Rubber

Stretchy, water repellent and tough – these are the primary qualities of rubber, a material that is used to produce a wide range of products. As an elastomer, rubber offers good dimen­sional stability, but is elast­ically malleable when subjected to tensile and pressure stress.

Lining material

Approx. 50%
Prim­aLoft® 200

The high-tech insu­lation Prim­aLoft® 200 is a world-class synthetic insu­lating material made of polyester (200 g/m²). More …

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 …

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 …
