    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.

    “Taking on a via ferrata for the very first time was a completely new, amazing and great experience for me. When it comes to the equipment you need, you realise pretty quickly just how important the right footwear is.”

    Johannes | LOWA Key account manager Germany

    • 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Sole

VIBRAM® ALP TRAC® NUMEN

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

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.

Lining material

100%
GORE-TEX

Footwear equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane is reliably waterproof, windproof and breathable. More …

Functions

The forefoot and upper area can be laced in varying degrees of tightness. More …

Service & accessories

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

Repairing the cuff required a lot of handwork, know-how and utmost care. First, the new edging piece is cut by hand and sewn onto the upper. 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 …

Replacement parts
