    Why do we follow our own rhythm?

    Speed hiking is a more athletic form of hiking. Such hikes involve a rapid trek across chal­lenging terrain using poles and light equipment. The poles help hikers to stabilise their bodies and to provide a workout for their upper-body muscles. Like Nordic walking, speed hiking is fast-paced. It can also include alternating periods of running and walking.

    • Lightness
      Weight is a critical factor for people who want to race across moun­tainous terrain. This is why LOWA’s speed-hiking shoes are really light.

    • 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.

    • Cush­ioning
      Good shoe cush­ioning is necessary to create a pleasant feeling during each step a hiker takes. This ensures optimal comfort over a long period of time. For this reason, speed hiking shoes are equipped with LOWA DynaPU® – a special foamed material with optimal cush­ioning prop­erties.

    Why do we prefer to explore an area on foot?

    A stroll is a relaxed outdoor walk. You can take a stroll in many different places: in the woods, in a park or in the city. Strolls are usually a form of relaxation. People take strolls to enjoy the sun, get some fresh air, to exercise or to simply experience a change of scenery. A walking cane frequently helps older people to take a stroll.

    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.

    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.

    2020_lowa_arthur-kudelka

    “A high-altitude tour combines a range of different skills and really puts the whole alpinist to the test. To succeed on these tours, you have to be able to handle everything nature throws at you: ice, snow and rock. That’s why it is so alluring.”

    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.

    johannes-krause_8736

    “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.

    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.

    Why don’t we stay at home?

    Snow-covered trees and a white winter landscape – these are more than good reasons to head outdoors. A winter hike is a one-day tour done in icy or snowy conditions on easy trails. The tour can lead over either moun­tainous or flat terrain. Winter hikers generally use trails that have been cleared. The snow on them will be no deeper than ankle-high, so hikers don’t need snowshoes or mini-crampons to complete their tours.

    matthias-wanner_vertriebsleiter-international-lowa

    “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.”

    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.

    2020_lowa_arthur-kudelka

    “Exped­itions are the Olympics of moun­tain­eering. When you set off on one of them, you’ll have to do something more than simply tackle the chal­lenges of scaling mountains or climbing. You’ll also have to come to terms with different cultures and people. This is what I like so much about exped­itions.”

    Why do we prefer to explore the city on foot?

    A trip to the office or a few quick errands in the downtown pedestrian zone – many people live their lives in urban settings. The activities performed in a city can be multi-faceted. The range is broad: from work in the office, shopping trips or a sight­seeing tour of a city at the weekend.

  • What fascinates you?

    Ice climbing involves the scaling of ice form­ations like frozen waterfalls and icicles. Climbers use crampons and ice tools to scale the ice. Ice climbing is a special discipline of alpine climbing or moun­tain­eering because all knowledge about alpine climbing is put to the test here. The same protective equipment needed for alpine climbing is used here as well. Mixed climbing is a combination of sport climbing and ice climbing. It may sound simple. But the ability to effectively move across such combined terrain is far from easy. Generally, climbers use crampons and ice tools to maintain their vertical position – just like ice climbing. Mixed routes are char­ac­terised by pronounced overhangs and difficult rock and ice form­ations.

    2020_lowa_arthur-kudelka

    “Ice climbing is an alpine sport that demands abso­lutely everything you have. Endurance, strength, passion. Above all, your psyche plays a key role. It is a special type of challenge.”

    • Sole rigidity
      Boots with a torsionally stable sole play a very important role in a wearer’s ability to maintain stable footing while using crampons. This takes the load off foot muscles and combats fatigue.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Why is the journey the reward?

    Fascinating climbing faces or chal­lenging via ferrata – before you can start your adventure, you have to gain a little altitude. The hike to the starting point of the rock face or the climb is called the approach. The approach usually leads across rough terrain and frequently includes some sections to scramble as well.

    “I regard the approach as well as the tour and the actual climbing as part of the same experience. You wake up and warm up.”

    Josef Pfnür | LOWA ACTIVE Team

    • Climbing zone
      A few rocky passages have to be cleared on the way to the rock face or the via ferrata. The sole of approach boots is equipped with a climbing zone for this purpose. The zone facil­itates easier movement during small scrambling sections.

    • Generalist
      Approach routes often vary signi­ficantly. For the boot to perfectly meet every challenge, it should be designed with a broad range of uses in mind.

    • Sole rigidity
      You need to have stable footing when you venture across rough terrain. The soles of your boots need to have a certain degree of stiffness to perform this job.

    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.
