Once winter conditions become extreme, the feet are given extra protection by a GORE-TEX® membrane equipped with an insulating layer of lining.

GORE-TEX® Surround

GORE-TEX® Surround

When it comes to GORE-TEX® SURROUNDTM product technology, many people have to do a double take: Holes in the soles? Can it really be waterproof? The answer is a definite “yes”. Footwear that employs this technology is completely waterproof. The heart of this technology is the special design used under the foot. Because most sweat glands are located on the soles of people’s feet, the sole of the shoe is designed in such a way that warm air and sweat can flow downward through a membrane and into an open-celled spacer. From there, they can escape through the side of the shoe. The result is 360° climate comfort in the shoe. The wearer’s feet will remain dry even when temperatures climb to higher levels. This, in turn, minimises chafing and reduces the threat of blisters.

Close to the ground

Close to the ground

Secure footing, sensibility and grip are created in particular by the space between the foot and the ground. The CLOSE-TO-THE-GROUND technology is designed in such a way that the space to the ground is kept to a bare minimum. Careful attention is also paid to grip and rolling properties. The overall height of the boot is kept to a minimum, a feature that provides additional control, a natural feel and stability on terrain.

Close to the rock

Close to the rock

Secure footing, sensibility and grip are created in particular by the space between the foot and the ground. For this reason, the CLOSE-TO-THE-ROCK-technology is designed in a way that reduces the space between the ground or the rock to the greatest extent possible, while also paying careful attention to such factors as grip and rolling properties.

Fit Frame

Fit Frame

In this construction style, the sole is designed as a type of shell that forms a perfect home for the foot. The result is guaranteed comfort.

Support Frame

Support Frame

In the form of the LOWA MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole supports the foot in those places that are subject to great stress. The sole design is only slightly raised.

Stability Frame

Stability Frame

In STABILITY FRAME design, the sole is highly elevated. The LOWA MONOWRAP® frame creates the optimal structure for the upper and provides a high level of stability.

DynaPU®

DynaPU®

The midsole is the heart of rolling properties and shoe cushioning. It is usually made from a foamed plastic. LOWA has exclusively developed a special polyurethane (PU) foam material that meets all cushioning, comfort and durability criteria: LOWA DynaPU®. The special feature: The material is extremely stable. It retains its stability and substance even when it is pressed together 1,000 times. As a result, the finished shoes will maintain their optimal cushioning ability even after you have walked many kilometres in them.

LOWA DuraPU®

LOWA DuraPU®

To complement its dynamic polyurethane cushioning material, LOWA employs another material that adds new emphasis to the area of durability: LOWA DuraPU®. Unlike LOWA DynaPU®, this special cushioning material is primarily used in ATC models and markedly increases the shoe’s performance, something that produces special toughness and stability.

Single Injection

Single Injection

In this manufacturing process, the outsole is directly sprayed onto the shoe. This manufacturing technique creates an exceptionally precise and very strong bond between the sole and upper.

Double Injection

Double Injection

To provide optimal cushioning and improve comfort, the sole of the shoe is attached to the upper in a complex injection-moulding process meaning the upper shoe is placed in a specially-designed mould. The form is filled with several layers of a PU foamed material. This creates the sole and directly joins it to the upper.

Shock absorber

Shock absorber

Every time a foot is planted, the heel absorbs many times the body’s weight. To reduce this stress and to make heel support even more comfortable, a heel cushion was developed for the insole as a way of further optimising the cushioning.

Anatomical fit

Anatomical fit

The sole is designed in such a way that it adapts to the anatomical contours of the foot. This increases comfort and prevents fatigue. These advances are produced by the integrated cushioning added to the insole and by their anatomical form that provides natural support to the arch of the foot.

I-Core

I-Core

The “I-Core” carbon insert forms the intelligent core of the sole construction. Perfect flex and torsional stability is achieved with precision alignment of the carbon fibres with the lever arm.

LOWA Flex®

LOWA Flex®

To add flexibility to each eyelet, the lacing systems through which laces are threaded are installed separately. These sections are made of soft leather trim or textile materials that prevent pressure points from being created. Thanks to the flexible arrangement of the eyelets, the laces can easily be pulled all the way to the toe area without producing any excessive pressure on individual areas. But the tongue always maintains its optimal positioning.

LOWA Reptex

LOWA Reptex

In the animal world reptiles have got a protecting armour for their delicate skin. In the same way LOWA REPTEX protects the shoe´s upper from harm caused by for example sharp rock edges. This ideal cover significantly boosts the performance on the mountain while reducing the overall weight in comparison to rubber.

FlexFit®

FlexFit®

The feet can roll more easily if a hiking boot is easy to bend. Such a feature saves energy when the wearer climbs hills and provides real comfort in the process. For this reason, LOWA has integrated a flexible zone and a lace loop into this area. This involves the re-positioning of the boot’s eyelets and the use of a flexible lace hook that improves heel comfort and facilitates bending.

FlexFit Synchro®

FlexFit Synchro®

FLEXFIT SYNCRO® technology involves an asymmetrical upper design. It enables the boot’s upper to move “in sync” with the wearer’s upper leg. This feature significantly improves walking comfort – particularly on paths, trails or rough terrain. The technology focuses on a key aspect of walking: A person plants his or her foot not centrally under the hip, but rather somewhat farther in the middle.

C4-Tongue

C4-Tongue

The specially designed boot tongue substantially enhances the comfort of the footwear. The tongue includes extra padding for the outer portion of the foot, and the upper end of it is especially soft. This asymmetrical padding provides optimal support to many areas of the foot. In response to the foot’s natural anatomy, the notches for the ankle area have been placed higher on the inside than on the outside. A flexible bending application has also been integrated into the inner part.

Minimal Seams

Minimal Seams

The use of a single-section fabric upper eliminates stitching and, thus, friction and irritation. The result? Increased comfort.

2-Zone-Lacing

2-Zone-Lacing

Thanks to the dual-zone lacing system, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the boot can be individually adjusted to the foot’s anatomy.

X-Lacing®

X-Lacing®

Optimal positioning of the tongue, without any slippage or pressure points: This is what X-LACING® technology is all about. This special lacing system fixes the tongue both vertically and horizontally. The lacing system gains independence from the height of the instep as a result, making it perfect for any type of foot. In this technology, the pressure of the laces is borne not just by the hooks and is transferred to the tongue as well.

I-Lock

I-Lock

Just pull tight and position in place: To simplify the job of tying boots, LOWA has developed a special type of locking cam hooks. The special feature: The system holds the laces in place in two different areas. Once the laces have been pulled tight on the lower level, they can be locked in place with the help of the cam hooks. The lock releases by snapping the hook brackets open. The instep laces can be adjusted.

Roller Eyelets
