    The perfect mix of hiking and climbing

    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.

    “The mix of climbing and hiking opens the way to spec­tacular routes that offer breath-taking views and creates very special exper­iences in the mountains.”

    Michael | LOWA Product manager

    • 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.

    Why do we need to go up there?

    High-altitude tours belong to the Olympian class of moun­tain­eering. During tours like these, moun­taineers set off from the valley, take hiking paths, cross rock-covered terrain and trek through snow before reaching steep ice and firn flanks. High-altitude tours call for orientation skills, experience, climbing ability and sure footing cross alpine terrain. The right equipment is an absolute must for such tours. During high-altitude tours, moun­taineers are part of a roped party or group and face all sorts of different terrains. They have to find their own way on snow, ice and rock.

    2020_lowa_arthur-kudelka

    “A high-altitude tour combines a range of different skills and really puts the whole alpinist to the test. To succeed on these tours, you have to be able to handle everything nature throws at you: ice, snow and rock. That’s why it is so alluring.”

    Arthur | LOWA Manager Service Department

    • Insu­lation
      LOWA’s expedition boots are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX or Prim­aLoft®.

    • Torsional stability
      If you’re on an extended tour or lugging relatively heavy loads, you need secure footing. This is why high-altitude boots offer excep­tional torsional stability and give wearers firm footing even when they are carrying a full load.

  • Along rock and ice form­ations

    Ice climbing involves the scaling of ice form­ations like frozen waterfalls and icicles. Climbers use crampons and ice tools to scale the ice. Ice climbing is a special discipline of alpine climbing or moun­tain­eering because all knowledge about alpine climbing is put to the test here. The same protective equipment needed for alpine climbing is used here as well. Mixed climbing is a combination of sport climbing and ice climbing. It may sound simple. But the ability to effectively move across such combined terrain is far from easy. Generally, climbers use crampons and ice tools to maintain their vertical position – just like ice climbing. Mixed routes are char­ac­terised by pronounced overhangs and difficult rock and ice form­ations.

    2020_lowa_arthur-kudelka

    “Ice climbing is an alpine sport that demands abso­lutely everything you have. Endurance, strength, passion. Above all, your psyche plays a key role. It is a special type of challenge.”

    Arthur | LOWA Manager Service Department

    • Insu­lation
      Boots designed for ice and mixed climbing are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX or Prim­aLoft®.

    • Crampon welts
      Anyone who traverses icy or mixed terrain needs crampon-compatible boots. LOWA ice-climbing boots have permanently affixed crampons or are designed to accept fully automatic crampons.

    • Sole rigidity
      Boots with a torsionally stable sole play a very important role in a wearer’s ability to maintain stable footing while using crampons. This takes the load off foot muscles and combats fatigue.

    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.

    “I have not walked the Camino de Santiago, but as a mountain guide have covered scores of kilo­metres wearing my LOWA shoes.”

    Josef Pfnür | LOWA ACTIVE Team

    • Stability
      To ensure sufficient grip during hikes, 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 handle short or long strolls.

    Adventures of discovery at the end of the world

    Remote areas and uncharted terrain: Exped­itions are trips of discovery and research that take people to remote or unex­plored regions of the world. In the Alps, such exped­itions frequently involve mountain climbing on heavily glaciated terrain that is difficult to manoeuvre across. But exped­itions on flat terrain also appeal to many adven­turers. These types of journeys usually pass through areas that are far from civil­isation and, as a result, lack such infra­structure as roads, hospitals and accom­mod­ations.

    2020_lowa_arthur-kudelka

    “Exped­itions are the Olympics of moun­tain­eering. When you set off on one of them, you’ll have to do something more than simply tackle the chal­lenges of scaling mountains or climbing. You’ll also have to come to terms with different cultures and people. This is what I like so much about exped­itions.”

    Arthur | LOWA Manager Service Department

    • Insu­lation
      LOWA’s expedition boots are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX or Prim­aLoft®.

    • Crampon welts
      The boots are also equipped with crampon welts to help wearers to traverse icy surfaces or rough terrain.

    • Gaiters
      To enable wearers to effectively plough through deep snow, the boots are equipped with gaiters.

    The hike to the wall – a real adventure

    Fascinating climbing faces or chal­lenging via ferrata – before you can start your adventure, you have to gain a little altitude. The hike to the starting point of the rock face or the climb is called the approach. The approach usually leads across rough terrain and frequently includes some sections to scramble as well.

    “I regard the approach as well as the tour and the actual climbing as part of the same experience. You wake up and warm up.”

    Josef Pfnür | LOWA ACTIVE Team

    • Climbing zone
      A few rocky passages have to be cleared on the way to the rock face or the via ferrata. The sole of approach boots is equipped with a climbing zone for this purpose. The zone facil­itates easier movement during small scrambling sections.

    • Generalist
      Approach routes often vary signi­ficantly. For the boot to perfectly meet every challenge, it should be designed with a broad range of uses in mind.

    • Sole rigidity
      You need to have stable footing when you venture across rough terrain. The soles of your boots need to have a certain degree of stiffness to perform this job.

CADIN II GTX MID

VIBRAM ALP TRAC® NUMEN Precision climbing

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

The performance sole VIBRAM ALP TRAC® NUMEN is designed espe­cially for alpine conditions. The large “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.

VIBRAM® ALP TRAC® NUMEN

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The CADIN II GTX MID 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 GORE-TEX details on my shoes are extremely important for my exped­itions and mountain tours, as I am on the move in extreme areas of the mountain. A good shoe climate very much depends on the level of waterproof protection and breath­ability, guards against frostbite and at the same time offers wearing comfort. I think that is important for all of us!”

Robert Jasper | LOWA PRO Team

TWO ZONE LACING The shoes fit correctly as a result

Thanks to the two-zone lacing system used in the CADIN II GTX MID, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the shoe can be indi­vidually adapted to the anatomy of the foot and laced in different ways for ascents and descents.

If your boots had eyes Focus on the experience

Anyone who returns home after a long hiking tour knows that feeling of gratitude. Gratitude for breath­taking days spent in the great outdoors, for spec­tacular moments and for snug boots that safely took the hiker up the mountains and back down again. Many hikers have a very special rela­tionship with their hiking boots. They are something more than just another pair of shoes in the closet. They are more like a hiking partner and a real companion. For a few, they even become something that can only be described as friends. Hikers just can’t do without them. The boots fit like a glove and accompany us everywhere – as they should. Sometimes you wonder: What would the boots say if they could talk? What would they tell us? What have they seen?

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 CADIN II GTX MID 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.

LOWA x GORE-TEX – Nature Clean-Up

Nature provides us with all sorts of unique oppor­tunities to experience unfor­gettable adventures and enjoy very special moments. More and more people are making a conscious decision to get back in tune with nature. But the decision by more and more people to get back in tune with nature also results in a greater and greater impact on the envir­onment. You hear words like “awareness” and “mind­fulness” a lot in discussions about this trend – but what exactly do people mean when they use them? An example: The practise of taking your trash home with you after a tour now comes second nature to many people. Such steps, no matter how tiny they may seem, can be the key to a mindful and sustainable outdoor lifestyle. But if you look around outdoors, you will certainly see many places that certainly have room for improvement.

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

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.

A specially constructed component in the area of the sole tip for precise performance during easy climbs.

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

Midsole

Approx. 80%
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.

Approx. 20%
Ther­mo­plastic poly­urethane

Ther­mo­plastic poly­urethane (TPU) is like classic poly­urethane in many ways. But it differs from it in one special aspect: the process used to produce it. As a result, TPU is more abrasion and slip resistant. It also has a very high degree of kink and tensile strength. Thanks to improved weather resistance, the qualities of a sole made from TPU are more constant even when temper­atures fluctuate, an espe­cially important aspect of our leisure-time winter models.

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

Approx. 80%
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.

Approx. 20%
Fabric

Our natural and synthetic fabrics facilitate optimal warming and moisture management with the help of their usage-specific char­ac­ter­istics. Thanks to their structural design, they are smooth and make our products extremely comfortable.

Available repairs

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

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 …
