STRATO EVO LL QC Ws

Multi­func­tional, no ifs ands or buts about it. STRATO EVO LL QC Ws

Hiking boots are by definition not neces­sarily suited for everyday wear. Never­theless, they are being worn more and more often in the city. What was previously considered stiff and excessive is nearly the norm in today’s urban lifestyle. The func­tional hybrid solution with a casual look is consciously heading off in a new direction, one in which it skilfully pulls off the balancing act between lifestyle and outdoor footwear. The trendy shoe shines in every way. The reduced LOWA MONOWRAP® frame that optimally supports the foot and the cush­ioning mid-sole made of LOWA DynaPU® create a complete, eye-catching look. “Lifestyle meets outdoor” – this sums up the essence of the func­tional models in the best-possible way. With its urban trend­setters, LOWA once again provides a multi­func­tional solution for all sorts of activities for users’ shoe closets – no matter whether the footwear is destined for use in the mountains or downtown.

    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.

    • 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 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 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.

    “I regard trav­elling not just as the route to a mountain. It’s my philosophy of life and an expression of my freedom. The shoes that I wear when I am trav­elling tell a story. They become symbols – and are all still on my shelf.”

The sole LOWA® HYBRID TRAC®

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the STRATO EVO LL QC 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 STRATO EVO LL QC 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.
