    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.

    meike-allerdissen

    “If you spend too much time sitting at your desk during the day, you should head out in the evening and take a walk. I can really unwind during long walks and love the oppor­tunity to add some exercise to my everyday life.”

    Meike | LOWA Testing manager

    • 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.

    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.

    “As a paraglider pilot I appreciate shoes that fit comfortably when I am both hiking at pace and flying.”

    Chrigel Maurer | LOWA PRO Team

    • 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.

    Where is your journey leading you?

    Nordic walking was invented in Finland and describes the act of walking rapidly while using two poles that follow the natural rhythm of the walkers’ steps. This type of exercise is perfect for long distances. The sport is frequently practised in groups, which enables walkers to chat with one another during the outing and enjoy nature in the process.

    michael-schueppel

    “Nordic walking is an optimal intro­ductory sport for outdoor enthu­siasts. It puts your whole body to the test. It gives your muscles a great workout and stim­ulates your meta­bolism. It is certainly much more than a stroll with poles. Our sports company also has models for Nordic walkers in our collection. These shoes are perfect for this type of exercise.”

    Michael | LOWA Product manager

    • Supports rolling motion
      Walking shoes support the wearer’s feet during the typical rolling motion that occurs when the right technique is used for every step.

    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.

GORGON GTX Ws

LOWA® SPEED­HIKING Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The GORGON GTX 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.

The sole LOWA® SPEED­HIKING offers solid grip thanks to its large profile contact area. It also provides homo­geneous, fatigue-retarding rolling prop­erties on paved paths. Ideal for fast hikers and mountain runners.

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The GORGON GTX Ws is equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane. The innovative tech­nology delivers optimal waterproof protection and breath­ability.

  • Permanently waterproof
    The membrane provides reliable waterproof protection. No matter what sort of adventure you may be planning, you can count on GORE-TEX tech­nology to keep your feet pleasantly dry.

  • High breath­ability
    Designed with optimal breath­ability in mind, GORE-TEX shoes provide pleasant comfort even during intense activities. Water cannot penetrate the footwear, and moisture produced inside the shoe escapes through billions of pores in the GORE-TEX membrane.

  • Windproof
    The GORE-TEX membrane dependably fights off the wind and the weather. As a result, you can head off on a tour no matter what the weather is like.

  • 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.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the GORGON GTX Ws is bonded to the upper in a tech­nically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.

  • 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 GORGON GTX 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.

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. 85%
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

Synthetic

Our synthetic fabrics made of such plastics as nylon, polyester, polypro­pylene and elastane (Lycra) are primarily used as design elements and protection for the upper due to their abrasion resistance and tear strength.
