True outdoor athletes know no limits when it comes to alpine adventures and pushing their own limits. If you head out regularly in extreme conditions, you have to be able to rely 100 per cent on your gear in any weather. Certainly ideal when you can conquer without any issues even the most difficult passages over ice and rock in boots with an integrated gaiter like the ALPINE ICE GTX®. Also fully crampon compatible.

Above 4,000 meters elevation, not only is the air thinner. Indeed, the technical demands for alpine mountaineering boots also increase. There is no room for compromises here. That is one of the reasons why the ALPINE ICE GTX® was developed together with the professional alpinists on the LOWA PRO Team – to ensure fulfilling even the highest demands. Thus, the completely crampon-compatible mountaineering boot is equipped with a flexible gaiter and waterproof GORE-TEX® membrane to ensure neither snow nor water can penetrate the boot. The high-cut scree collar and the upper insulated with PrimaLoft® also ensure optimal protection in extreme weather conditions. The anatomical last contributes to optimum comfort whilst the lower-profile sole construction promises increased control, direct ground contact, and a clearly improved power transfer on rock, ice and snow.

Whether on exposed summit ridges, crossing an icy glacier or climbing on brittle rock, when you have an all-rounder like the ALPINE ICE GTX®, every alpinist can focus on the essentials and move quite nimbly across difficult terrain.

The attraction of a frozen waterfall is not only magical because the glittery natural spectacle is so fragile and short-lived, but also because there is adventure in every centimeter of the thickly frozen sheet. To make sure the challenge is not just a pure question of nerves, the minimalist ice climbing boot ICE ROCKET with its innovative BOA Closure System® provides that extra dash of safety.

What is already a challenge for climbing athletes is literally taken to the peak of extremes. The steep flanks of puristic ice demand not only pure arm and leg power, but also technical ability in particular. One characteristic that the extreme slim-cut ice-climbing boot innately brings is its roots from the Performance ROCKET model. In addition to a semi-flexed last, a total of five points on the front and three on the back ensure secure hold and a reliable grip while climbing or hooking. The innovative twist-knob closure on the front foot allows total and optimal fit customization. Its technical refinements were developed with professional alpinists like Ines Papert, Roger Schäli and Rudi Hauser from the LOWA PRO Team and tested on icy high-altitude adventures.

Head out before the route starts to melt again, or so the saying goes in ice climbing. No problem for the ICE ROCKET. With this boot as your partner you’ll be climbing with the maximum in safety at your side.

Passionate alpinists must be able to rely on their footwear 100 per cent on any terrain. And the ALPINE PRO GTX® isn’t just a perfect companion. The leather version of this highly technically engineered boot also masters the hardest challenges with bravura. The difference? The ALPINE PRO GTX® LE is made of split leather and thus is even more durable on crags.

One of LOWA’s trademarks since Day 1 is the combination of traditional shoemaking with modern materials and technology. Accordingly, the newest generation of outdoor boots fulfils even the highest demands on athletic products. Although the new leather version weighs a little bit more, it puts the wishes of outdoor athletes just as much in the foreground. The split leather used is even more durable and takes direct contact with the crag without a whimper. The newly constructed midsole is lower-profile than traditional outdoor boots and thus offers a more stable platform and increased ground sensitivity. A shorter toebox brings your foot closer to the rock and ensures more control and best power transfer. The Vibram® Alpine outsole promises superb grip whilst integrated cushioning and an anatomical footbed ensure optimum comfort even on longer high-altitude tours.

As always, boots made of split leather are preferred by mountain athletes of all kinds due to their breathability and optimum fit. One reason why LOWA has added the ALPINE PRO GTX® LE to its collection. A modern, minimalist alpine boot that combines traditional values and modern technology in creative ways.

Women are just as ambitious on alpine terrain as their male mountaineering counterparts. So they also need footwear made just for a woman’s foot. To that end, both the ALPINE PRO GTX® Ws and the approach shoe APPROACH PRO GTX® LO Ws are made with a special women’s last and do not fall one iota short of the men’s models when it comes to comfort, fit and technical performance.

Good footwear plays an overriding role, especially on demanding mountain tours – no matter what gender the alpinist. To ensure women alpinists can perform at their best at any time and can rely on optimum comfort, LOWA makes mountaineering boots and approach footwear that are specially made for a woman’s foot. Thus, both models feature the same technical features, whether men’s or women’s, although the women’s is made on a special women’s last that is narrower in overall width and at the heel. With its modern, minimalist design and a multitude of performance details, nothing more stands in the way of bagging the peak.

If a woman wants to conquer alpine terrain with less weight on her feet, the ALPINE PRO GTX® Ws and the APPROACH PRO GTX® LO Ws, both made especially for a woman’s foot, are perfect choices. Whether for a demanding mountain tour on rock and ice or merely to get to the next hut, both of these high-end models are totally en vogue in the mountains.

The name says it all with the lace-up version of the ROCKET. Indeed, ambitious climbers can scale walls with even more focus with this slightly cambered, unlined climbing shoe. Thanks to its ability to adapt to your individual foot anatomy, not only is the shoe super comfortable but also your control on the crag is greatly improved.

This semi-flexed shoe is designed in particular for sport climbers who prefer to be outside on a crag than in the gym. If you have clear goals for the outdoor world, but still do not want to neglect needed comfort on multi-pitch climbs, you will surpass expectations with the ROCKET LACING even on challenging routes. Improved power transfer is possible with the stiffer Vibram® XS-Grip® sole. Even precise edging is also possible. The foot also gets additional support from the lacing system, which allows you to anatomically adjust the fit of the pre-stretched split leather to your own needs. And the non-irritating leather upper consistently retains its shape, even without any chemicals whatsoever used in the tanning process.

Once the ROCKET LACING is tied on snugly, even the longest climbs will feel like a short holiday on the crag. A fit finely tuned to your foot anatomy means you save energy on particularly tricky spots – either from the subtle camber or because the overall well-engineered concept offers the necessary support.

Traditional alpine boots are suitable in first order for alpine terrain due to their stable construction methods. What in this case ensures needed sure-footed safety can in the case of moderate tours limit the natural and flexible roll-through of the foot in some circumstances. Stability and comfort can however walk the same path, as proven by both the IROX GTX® MID and LYXA GTX® MID Ws trekking models.

A perfect trekking boot must in first order possess two key characteristics: Comfort and high performance. Top that off with a modern design and you get both the versatile IROX GTX® MID model as well as the slightly lower-cut women’s version, the LYXA GTX® MID Ws. And if that isn’t enough, the use of newer materials has reduced weight to a minimum without foregoing any bit of stability. The result is an extremely athletic trekking boot that is impressive in its innovative construction using durable fabric, a breathable GORE-TEX® membrane, and a two-toned lining. Nothing now stands in the way of remote destinations with a grippy outsole combined with the high-cut rubber rand on the toes and heels, and the interwoven Fit Ribbon lacing system.

Comfortable, versatile and flexible – you cannot describe the new IROX GTX® MID and LYXA GTX® MID Ws models any better than that. In the end, both of these trekking boots are the most creative compromise between a lower-profile approach shoe and a high-cut alpine boot. Or, to cut a long story short: The perfect companion for every moderate trekking and alpine tour.

Casual sneakers and outdoor footwear won’t always cut it with every outfit. And most certainly not when it turns out a little more elegant. One exception is the new smooth leather ESTORIL LO shoe.

To ensure those first hiking boots for small peak-baggers fit perfectly and the little ones don’t immediately lose their love of hiking on the first outing, a pediatrician was invited to participate in the development of the ARCO GTX® MID JUNIOR. The result of a comprehensive list of specifications, this boot is specially designed for the anatomical needs of little feet in mind.

Children have their own ideas and want hiking boots that look cool and fit perfectly too. To that end, an entire catalogue of medical specifications was put together covering what a children’s shoe should include to offer the best support possible for sensitive growing feet as they develop. The outcome is a lightweight boot that has a quite perceptibly higher-cut shaft and, when it comes to the sole construction, is a bit sturdier. Nevertheless, freedom of movement is not limited, and the durable split leather offers the necessary flexibility to avoid pressure points. Embossed patterns on the sides and colourful designs ensure a kid-friendly look. And to ensure that the smallest amongst us can still discover the world when the weather is not so ideal, the boot also features the grippy LOWA Trac® Lite Junior sole for best traction. Plus, a breathable GORE-TEX® lining keeps out moisture and dirt reliably.

Lightweight, sturdy and still durable – the best requisites for the total acid test. Because in the end small alpinists always choose their own path. A good thing when their first big adventure can be experienced with the super comfortable ARCO GTX® MID JUNIOR on their feet. Doesn’t matter a bit if the terrain is flat or in alpine regions. What it really comes down to is having fun outdoors.

What really makes a good children’s shoe or boot? It must support the foot ideally, must not limit its growth, and must be as durable and as long lasting as possible. On top of that, footwear like the ROBIN GTX® would not take little hearts by storm if it weren’t also waterproof and allow speedy on and off with the innovative Speed Lace system.

When puddles, mudholes or other kinds of challenges are in the path, there is no stopping the childlike spirit of adventure. Precisely for this reason, these durable kid’s shoes by LOWA are made for the needs of little feet. The supportive LOWA MONOWRAP® construction and reinforcing straps also offer the needed stability. To ensure however that freedom of movement is not restricted, these trendy shoes feature a high proportion of fabric in the construction for flexible characteristics. You also get a multifunctional outsole that also offers secure grip in wet weather and has a higher-cut rubber rand at the toes. As with the prior SIMON model, this new kid’s style is available in a choice of LOW- or QUARTER-CUT versions. Saved was a little weight, but when it comes to the sporty look and bright colours the ante was upped yet again – just for kids, for more fun when out romping about.

Small adventurers do not want to spend a lot of time planning and preparing. Best is to just get right on with it. No problem at all with the ROBIN GTX® and its especially kid-friendly construction that lives up to the prior model’s reputation.
