“Boots from LOWA’s Trekking and Mountaineering lines can be resoled. This provides your favourite hiking boots with a new lease of life and enables them to be worn for several more years.”
— Arthur | LOWA Manager Service Department
Care The sole check
A hiking boot’s sole plays a fundamental role in the footwear’s overall safety. The sole’s profile should be intact to ensure a worry-free hiking tour. If the sole is worn out in several areas, then grip is no longer guaranteed. After several years, hiking boots are usually prone to something that is called “hydrolysis” or simply “brittleness”. This is a chemical-physical reaction that makes the soles porous and cracked, a condition that in many cases causes them to fall off completely.
