    Perfect in use.

    Combat deployment is a military assignment conducted in an active war zone. The combat mission is designed to fend off threats as well as to restore and maintain public safety. The terrain can vary greatly, depending on the area of operation. It may range from urban areas to remote locations with rough terrain. The ideal footwear for combat missions has a stable upper that supports the ankle and provides a high level of comfort even during extended engagements. A robust fabric provides the required durability, even under adverse conditions.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper provides the support required for demanding situ­ations.

    • Very robust
      The very robust boot is designed to handle long, demanding combat missions.

    • Comfortable
      The boot is also ideal for extended periods of wear thanks to its high level of comfort.

    Turns every landing into a pleasure.

    Para­chuting involves a range of different jumps from aero­planes to introduce troops to areas of operation. Such missions can involve jumps made at low altitudes with round para­chutes that open auto­mat­ically or military freefalls with parafoils and occa­sionally heavy rucksacks. Para­chuting places some special demands on footwear worn during such missions. Important features include closed hooks to prevent the hooks from becoming caught in suspension lines, good heel cush­ioning and a stable upper to prevent injuries during landing.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper design provides stability during landings.

    • Closed hooks
      The closed hooks prevent them from becoming acci­dentally caught in parts of the parachute.

    • Good heel cush­ioning
      Good heel cush­ioning reduces stress during landings.

    The right comrade in every situation.

    Patrols cover a limited area. They are used to conduct exploration, recon­naissance or security missions. The location and length of such missions vary tremendously, a fact that places tremendous demands on mission equipment, partic­ularly the footwear. Chal­lenging terrain (like the Hindu Kush mountain range in Afgh­anistan), frequent kneeling as well as good mobility and respons­iveness require tough, but light­weight boots that offer moderate sole rigidity and provide solid support to the ligaments and tendons.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper provides the support required during abrupt movements.

    • Moderate sole rigidity
      The boot’s moderate sole rigidity supports the foot without hindering movement.

    • Comfortable
      The snug boot remains comfortable even when it is worn for an extended amount of time.

ELITE EVO N GTX Ws

LOWA® NATURAL Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The ELITE EVO N 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.

The trekking-boot-like profile design of the LOWA® NATURAL impresses users with its excep­tional support and very good grip on the widest range of surfaces. Its heat- and cold-insu­lating sole design is anti­static and resistant to oil, petrol and contact heat. A distinct heel and front profile facil­itates precise mountain climbs and descents.

LOWA® NATURAL

TWO ZONE LACING The shoes fit correctly as a result

Thanks to the two-zone lacing system used in the ELITE EVO N GTX 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.

The women’s version of the Elite: The ELITE EVO N GTX Ws combines ideal fit with exceptional functionality. The lightweight boot applies its optimised rubber mix and the profile of the outsole to provide maximum slip protection on terrain. The heat- and cold-insulating sole complex of the certified model is also resistant to oil, petrol and contact heat. The large, intelligently integrated woven fabric windows keep air circulating on the side of the foot and upper area of the boot even during the scorching days of summer. The moisture-diverting GORE-TEX membrane stitched into the footwear also provides continuous protection from outside dampness. Made of durable smooth leather and equipped with a two-zone lacing system, the antistatic and resoleable ELITE EVO N GTX Ws is a pleasure to wear throughout its long service life.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for ELITE EVO N 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.

Sole

LOWA® NATURAL

A func­tional sole with very good grip. More …

An outsole designed by LOWA with an optimised rubber compound to provide good grip.

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%
Polyester

Polyester is synthetic plastic fibre made from crude oil. In chemical terms, it is a polymer that can be processed into many different materials. Thanks to its chemical flex­ibility, polyester is light­weight, dries quickly, does not shrink and has the highest levels of tear and abrasion resistance.

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%
Nubuck leather

Nubuck leather is a full-grain leather that is slightly sanded, a process that lends a velvety look to the leather. Nubuck leather is espe­cially durable, robust and open-pored. Depending on the desired look, nubuck leather can remain untreated or be oiled or waxed.

Service & accessories

Available repairs

LOWA boots sold in the MOUN­TAIN­EERING and TREKKING categories are designed in a way during the devel­opment phase that they can be resoled. This process will extend their service life and make a strong contri­bution to sustain­ability. More …

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 …

Replacement parts

Whether it’s new insoles, a speed-lace system, new laces or other replacement parts. Let us know what you need for your favourite LOWA footwear and we’ll send it to you. More …
