    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.

    “A stroll with children is always full of surprises and never boring. Climbing, running and balancing acts – all punc­tuated by chil­dren’s laughter.”

    • 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.

    • Comfortable
      Comfortable footwear is essential for long distances covered by foot. This is why LOWA places such a high priority on exact fit that is perfectly designed to handle short or long strolls.

    • Multi-func­tionality
      Into the pair of shoes and out into nature – multi-func­tionality is the key to strolling shoes. It’s the factor that ensures strollers are optimally equipped for every terrain and usage area.

“It’s important to me that my feet stay dry when I go on longer walks with my dog in all weathers. Of course, the footwear should never­theless be very breathable. That means my dog Loui and I have a lot of fun even in wet weather.”

LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The TAURUS II GTX LO Ws is equipped with a LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE. Conceived by LOWA to meet the chal­lenges of real-world use, the profile design is made from an optimised rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the back­country and off trail.

Reiseszene in Marvao, Portalegre, Portugal.

STABILITY FRAME Comfortably framed

With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the TAURUS II GTX LO Ws provides the very best comfort. This three-dimen­sional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and support it when the shoe wearer ventures across uneven surfaces. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a STABILITY FRAME.

  • Good guidance for the foot
    The foot is optimally nestled into the shoe thanks to the frame’s three-dimen­sional design.

  • Increased comfort
    The special midsole design ensures snug footing in the shoe. The foot is pleasantly cradled by the three-dimen­sional frame.

  • Light­weight
    The LOWA-MONOWRAP® is made of a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight material.

SINGLE INJECTION The bond between the sole and upper

The TAURUS II GTX LO Ws is footwear onto which the outsole has been directly injected. This manu­fac­turing technique creates an excep­tionally precise and very strong bond between the sole and upper.

  • Light­weight
    This process uses a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight foam padding.

  • Cush­ioning
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a foam padding that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • A wide range of design options
    Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multi­faceted prop­erties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for TAURUS II GTX LO Ws have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.

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. 45%
Felt

Felt is a textile fabric that is made of disordered fibrous material that is difficult to separate. The textile fabric is char­ac­terised by its high elasticity and its insu­lating qualities. As a result, it is used in particular as a component in insoles and as an insu­lating divider.

Approx. 15%
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. 40%
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.

Upper material

Approx. 60%
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.
