    Why do we spend our holidays in a sleeping bag?

    Your backpack is ready, and your hiking boots are tied. Your multi-day hike can begin. Such a hike is considered to be a tour that lasts for more than 24 hours. Hikers will generally sleep under the stars, in a shelter like a hut or in a tent.

    “For me, getting to know foreign cultures, people and religions while on trekking tours to faraway countries is a way of broadening my horizons and keeping me grounded.”

    • 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.

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

    • 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 take on long distances.

    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.

    Where do you really want to go?

    A long-distance hike usually leads through a variety of different regions and can be completed only during daily stages. Long-distance hikes very frequently involve at least 30 one-day stages and are the Olympic class of long hikes. The hiking routes cover hundreds of kilo­metres and frequently lead across national borders.

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

    • Good grip
      Good grip by the sole is partic­ularly vital when people venture out into weather char­ac­terised by a wide range of temper­atures and cover slippery and wet surfaces. This is why LOWA boots offer optimal traction for good grip.

TIBET GTX Ws

VIBRAM® MASAI Precision climbing

The TIBET GTX Ws has a CLIMBING ZONE. This is a flat component in the front sole area that facil­itates easy climbs.

The high-performance sole VIBRAM® MASAI is optimally designed for use on alpine terrain. The “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. The distinctive heel provides walking comfort partic­ularly during descents.

VIBRAM® MASAI

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

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

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 TIBET GTX 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.

I-LOCK All tied up

Just pull tight and lock in place: To simplify the job of tying footwear, LOWA has developed a special type of fastening hook for the TIBET GTX Ws. Special feature: the system holds the laces in place in two different zones. Once the laces have been pulled tight in the lower area, they can be locked in place with the help of the fastening hook. Simply pressing the hook fastener upwards releases the locking action and the instep laces can be loosened.

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 TIBET GTX Ws. This involves repos­i­tioning the boot’s eyelets and using a flexible lace hook that improves heel comfort and facil­itates bending.

C4-TONGUE Perfectly adapted to the foot’s anatomy

The specially designed tongue of the TIBET GTX Ws substan­tially enhances comfort. The tongue includes extra padding for the outer portion of the foot, and the upper end of it is espe­cially soft. This asym­metric padding provides effectively coordinated support to many areas of the foot. To take into account the foot’s anatomy, the recesses for the ankle area have also been placed higher on the inside than on the outside, and a flexible bending insert has been integrated into the inner side by the foot.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for TIBET 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.

Proven Vibram® rubber sole from a high-quality provider from Italy.

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.

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
