Moving forward For those who like to be athlet­ically on the go. MADDOX GTX LO Ws

This light­weight and highly breathable multi­talented shoe features a double injection-moulded LOWA-DynaPU® sole that offers reliable comfort in the toughest conditions. The innovative LOWA MONOWRAP® tech­nology provides optimal foot guidance every step of the way on chal­lenging terrain. Its highly breathable mesh material is just as tough. Thanks to the GORE-TEX membrane integrated into it, the sporty low-cut shoe is not only weatherproof, but also keeps the feet continuously dry even during sweat-producing activities. This breathable multi­talent also works like clockwork elsewhere. With the help of its practical Speed-Lace tech­nology, the sports shoe can be quickly and easily adjusted to indi­vidual needs. The airily light and waterproof multi­func­tional footwear feels at home on any terrain – no matter whether during holidays or leisure time. The grippy LOWA Enduro Evo sole on this athletic jack-of-all-trades will most certainly rack up a little more distance by the end of any outing than originally planned.

    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 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.

    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.

    • 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.

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The MADDOX GTX LO 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.

SUPPORT FRAME Comfortably framed

With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the MADDOX 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 SUPPORT 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.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for MADDOX 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.

MINIMAL SEAMS Fewer stitches for lots of comfort

Stitches and material overlaps are elim­inated in the MADDOX GTX LO Ws thanks to the use of large pieces in forming the upper. This reduces the possibility of pressure points, a feature that enhances comfort.

LOWA DynaPU® Noticeable cush­ioning puts a spring in your step

The midsole is the leading contributor to the foot­wear’s rolling prop­erties and cush­ioning. In the MADDOX GTX LO Ws, this midsole is made of a specially developed plastic: LOWA DynaPU®. The special feature: It retains its restoring force even when it’s pressed together thousands of times. As a result, the finished boots will maintain their excep­tional cush­ioning prop­erties even after you have walked many kilo­metres in them.

  • Good comfort
    The special material devel­opment is char­ac­terised by good cush­ioning prop­erties. As a result, walking comfort and rolling prop­erties have been noticeably increased – even during long hikes.

  • Good rebound effect
    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.

  • Light­weight
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a very light­weight foam padding. The result is a sole that offers the best form of comfort.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the MADDOX GTX LO 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.

  • 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.
