  • 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.

    “Shoes with GORE-TEX are a must if you plan to spend a lot of time with children outdoors. And which children do not get a really big kick out of jumping straight into puddles? We parents can now stop worrying about wet feet.”

    • Cush­ioning
      Good boot cush­ioning is necessary to create a pleasant feeling during each step a hiker takes. This ensures optimal comfort over a long period of time.

    • 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.

    • Stability
      To ensure sufficient grip during hikes, both the sole and the upper should be stable.

    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.

      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 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.”

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for WENDELSTEIN II 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.
