TRIDENT III GTX Ws

Perfect for every winter adventure. TRIDENT III GTX Ws

Even though the footwear is described as a classic, the TRIDENT III GTX Ws bears no resemblance at all to tradi­tional winter boots. The sporty design reminds you of a multi­func­tional shoe and not of a heavily lined heating unit for your feet. This is reason enough to pay attention to the inner values of the new winter model. These include, above all, the high synthetic upper with textile elements, the LOWA MONOWRAP frame and the warm GORE-TEX Partelana lining. The outer details are a feast for the eyes. Partic­ularly, the LOWA Snow Trac® outsole with its triangle-shaped stud profile. Func­tional and light­weight – the TRIDENT III GTX is anything but a winter clod­hopper. No matter whether you are taking an autumn stroll in chilly, wet weather, ploughing through deep snow during a winter hike or looking for a backup for an evening of mulled wine – the multi­func­tional winter model is the perfect companion for any type of outdoor adventure.

    Why do we go out anyway?

    Even when the mercury drops, many people still like to take winter walks. These are relaxed outdoor strolls in winter weather. A winter walk can be done in nature or in the city. Developed paths are generally used.

    • 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.

    • Insu­lation
      LOWA winter shoes are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX warm lining or Prim­aLoft®.

    • Multi-func­tionality
      Into the 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 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.

    “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.”

TRIDENT III GTX Ws

LOWA® SNOW TRAC® Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The TRIDENT III 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.

There is no question about where the LOWA® SNOW TRAC® should be put to work: snow, any form of it. It comes with a special outsole design, a proven rubber compound for winter and a serrated stud arrangement.

LOWA® SNOW TRAC®

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 TRIDENT III GTX 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.

SUPPORT FRAME Comfortably framed

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.

SINGLE INJECTION The bond between the sole and upper

The TRIDENT III GTX 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 TRIDENT III 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.
