ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws

It’s time for an Alpine adventure! ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws

LOWA is constantly evolving while remaining true to its heritage. The ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws is a state-of-the-art moun­tain­eering boot that uses proven and robust materials like split leather. This combination of the modern and the tradi­tional proves its value during every mountain tour: thanks to the minim­alistic design and trail­blazing tech­nology. This boot for ambitious female Alpinists is equipped with an array of well-designed features, including a redesigned midsole. This midsole is noticeably flatter than the one used in conven­tional moun­tain­eering boots, a feature that provides a better feel for the surface and increased stability. Thanks to the shortened toe cap, the foot is closer to the rock, has a more direct contact to the surface and uses the power transfer as effi­ciently as possible. But this boot with the crampon-compatible Vibram®-Alpin outsole has even more to offer: A feel-good factor while walking! This is achieved by a fit that is designed espe­cially for women’s feet with an integrated cush­ioning.

    Why do we have to take the high road?

    High-altitude tours belong to the Olympian class of moun­tain­eering. During tours like these, moun­taineers set off from the valley, take hiking paths, cross rock-covered terrain and trek through snow before reaching steep ice and firn flanks. High-altitude tours call for orientation skills, experience, climbing ability and sure footing cross alpine terrain. The right equipment is an absolute must for such tours. During high-altitude tours, moun­taineers are part of a roped party or group and face all sorts of different terrains. They have to find their own way on snow, ice and rock.

    “As I only move about on foot – with crutches – during my summer projects and do without with mobility aids, the shoes I wear must be genuine all-rounders. I always climb from the lowest point in the valley up to the summit. This means my ascent takes me through the uplands into the high mountains. For reasons of weight, I can’t take several pairs of shoes with me. My shoe should therefore be comfortable and flexible to wear in the valley, should steady me on rocky ground and ice, and support me in using my strength.”

    • Insu­lation
      LOWA’s expedition boots are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX or Prim­aLoft®.

    • Torsional stability
      If you’re on an extended tour or lugging relatively heavy loads, you need secure footing. This is why high-altitude boots offer excep­tional torsional stability and give wearers firm footing even when they are carrying a full load.

    Why do we want to go up there?

    No matter whether you are talking about an outdoor sport climbing facility or multi-pitch alpine climbs – climbing exudes an allure, everywhere and at every level of difficulty. Strength, technique, agility and balance are critical factors in determining whether you can cover a route or not. Usually, a climber attempts a set climbing route on a rock face or in the climbing gym. To prevent falls, the climber is generally secured by a rope held by a climbing partner.

    LOWA ACTIVE Team

    “I love long-distance alpine climbing routes – whether in the Dolomites, at home or in Yosemite Valley. There’s almost nothing better than the aesthetics of a long, exposed rock face, and it makes me want to go climbing.”

    Nina Schlesener | LOWA ACTIVE Team

    • High-friction sole
      A good sole for a climbing shoe will produce a high degree of friction and and thereby perfectly mould the shoe to the surface of the rock or climbing wall.

    • Fit
      For the wearer to be able to stand on the narrowest of edges, the shoe must perfectly fit and optimally encase the foot.

    • Generalist
      Routes taken in climbing often vary signi­ficantly. For the shoe to perfectly meet every challenge, it should be designed with a broad range of uses in mind.

    Why do we look up and not down?

    Via ferrata are iron routes built on mountains. The route is usually well marked with a permanently installed steel cable. It’s a source of great adventure. Fixed steel pegs and ladders are used in places that are too steep or rock faces that lacks sufficient structure. In addition to normal via ferrata equipment, climbers need the right footwear.

    “When I set off on a via ferrata, sure-footedness is what I need most. A single careless step can quickly produce a disastrous result. Then again, this is what gets your juices flowing sometimes as well.”

    • Generalist
      As a rule of thumb, a good via ferrata boot is a generalist. After all, the route covers not just steps carved into rock and ladders, but also classic mountain trails, meadows and hiking paths.

    • Torsional stability
      Climbers who are taking long tours or have to cover difficult passages need secure footing. This is why via ferrata boots offer excep­tional torsional stability and give wearers firm footing even when they are carrying a full load.

VIBRAM® ALP TRAC® Your connection to the earth

The ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws comes equipped with a Vibram® sole. The Italian sole manu­facturer has been one of the leading brands of high-quality soles for many years.

The performance sole VIBRAM® ALP TRAC® is designed espe­cially for alpine conditions. The large “climbing zone” on the sole tip enables wearers to move precisely as they manoeuvre their way up sheer rock faces. The stud arrangement ensures that any dirt that accu­mulates in the sole of the footwear will be shaken loose while the boot wearer is walking.

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The ALPINE PRO GTX LE 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.

“It’s important to me that my feet stay dry when I go on longer walks with my dog in all weathers. Of course, the footwear should never­theless be very breathable. That means my dog Loui and I have a lot of fun even in wet weather.”

The Performance collection The devel­opment of a high-performance line

When LOWA sits down to develop its line of Alpine boots, the company consults with the best profes­sional moun­taineers in the German-speaking world. These ambitious mountain athletes know exactly what counts during extreme high-altitude tours, on via ferrata and during far-off exped­itions. The LOWA PRO Team advises our specialists in the Devel­opment Department in its work to create footwear that perfectly meets the athletes’ needs. The result of this work is a new line that delivers top performance on the mountain. The models have become much more athletic and lighter. Over the past few years, a number of excep­tional LOWA boots have been developed in the “performance” segment during countless meetings with athletes and testing events.

X-LACING® To ensure that nothing slips …

As a result, the tongue is located where it should be – without any slippage or pressure points: This is what X-LACING® tech­nology of the ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws is all about. This special lacing system secures the tongue both vertically and hori­zontally. Because the lacing system gains inde­pendence from the height of the instep, the design is perfect for any type of foot. This tech­nology ensures that the pressure of the laces is trans­ferred not just to the hooks but to the tongue as well.

CLOSE TO THE GROUND For direct contact with the ground

People who venture across Alpine terrain face many chal­lenges. Fields of loose rocks, rocky outcrops and rough terrain place the highest demands on footwear. For this reason, LOWA uses the tech­no­logies of CLOSE TO THE GROUND in the ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws to create a good feel on the surface. The sole is designed in such a way that the distance to the ground is kept to a bare minimum. The height minim­isation throughout the entire shoe creates a natural feel during chal­lenging tours and provides stable footing on uneven terrain.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for ALPINE PRO GTX LE 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.

TWO ZONE LACING The shoes fit correctly as a result

Thanks to the two-zone lacing system used in the ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the shoe can be indi­vidually adapted to the anatomy of the foot and laced in different ways for ascents and descents.

FLEXFIT® Comfort in every step

Feet can roll more effectively if the upper of a hiking boot can be easily bent. Such a feature saves energy when the wearer climbs hills and it provides real comfort in the process. For this reason, LOWA has integrated a flexible zone and a lace loop into this area for the ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws. This involves repos­i­tioning the boot’s eyelets and using a flexible lace hook that improves heel comfort and facil­itates bending.

LOWA FLEX® Flexible eyelets for more comfort

To add flex­ibility to each eyelet of the ALPINE PRO GTX LE Ws, the lacing systems through which laces are threaded are affixed separately. These sections are made of soft leather trim or supple textile materials that prevent pressure points. Thanks to the flexible arrangement of the eyelets, the laces can be indi­vidually adjusted without producing any excessive pressure on specific areas. But the tongue maintains its optimum posi­tioning.

Midsole

100%
Poly­urethane (PU)

Poly­urethane (PU) is a soft plastic that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties and is usually used in the midsole as a result. Through the use of PU, the soles become light­weight and func­tionally flexible.

Insole

Approx. 50%
Viscoelastic latex foam

Viscoelastic latex foam is made of a remarkable polymer that lends a special form memory to the foam. Once body heat or pressure is applied to the viscoelastic foam, the foam adapts exactly to these particular contours. This feature equally distributes pressure and eases stress on the feet.

Approx. 40%
Non-woven fabric

Non-woven fabric is a collection of fibre of limited length, filaments or cut yarns. Used as a component/covering of feet beds, the layer of non-woven fabric absorbs the heat generated by the foot, creating a pleasant feeling of comfort even in cold weather.

Approx. 10%
Mesh

Mesh is a material that consists of many evenly spaced holes. It is usually made of polyester or nylon and basically a lattice-like material that is created by interwoven threads. Thanks to its special design, the man-made fibre is partic­ularly permeable to air, has special moisture-regu­lating qualities and is easy to care for, breathable and crease-resistant.

Upper material

100%
Suede leather

Suede leather comes from the flesh side of the hide. It has a looser fibre structure, a quality that creates a velvety surface and a light pile. Suede leather is partic­ularly durable and open-pored. Depending on the desired look, suede leather can remain untreated or be oiled or waxed.

Seam repair

Right at the devel­opment stage, our footwear is designed in such a way that the seams for the different parts of the upper are equal to the demands placed on them. But even with the greatest of care, seams can of course still come apart. Torn or worn seams can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. More …

Heel lining repair

The heel lining is one of the parts of a shoe that are subject to the most stress. Even with quality materials, chafing and signs of wear can of course still occur. The heel lining for leather and GORE-TEX footwear can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. More …

Hook repair

Hooks, loops and eyelets are essential for lacing and putting on all types of footwear. Even with the biggest selection of material, indi­vidual parts can still break, tear or fall apart. Our service workshop can repair all that in house. More …

Cuff repair

Repairing the cuff required a lot of handwork, know-how and utmost care. First, the new edging piece is cut by hand and sewn onto the upper. In a second step, the worn material is removed and replaced with the new piece, ensuring that the necessary glueing and seams match the LOWA standards and nothing pinches on the cuff. More …
