  • 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 don’t we take the gondola?

    A mountain hike involves a tour in highland terrain. This is the easiest way to explore the mountains. In principle, mountain hiking is something for everyone. The tours frequently use forest trails or paths. The higher the altitude of the hikes, the greater the degree of difficulty and the greater the need for experience, preparation, fitness, grip and a head for heights. Mountain hiking is a basic form of mountain climbing. The transition is frequently seamless.

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The SASSA GTX MID 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.

LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The SASSA GTX MID 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.

MINIMAL SEAMS Fewer stitches for lots of comfort

Stitches and material overlaps are elim­inated in the SASSA GTX MID Ws thanks to the use of large pieces in forming the upper. This reduces the possibility of pressure points, a feature that enhances comfort.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for SASSA GTX MID 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.

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. 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. 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. 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.

Lining material

GORE-TEX

Footwear equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane is reliably waterproof, windproof and breathable. More …

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 …
