Espe­cially in skyr­unning – in other words, vertical mountain running – where sometimes only a few seconds can make the difference between victory and defeat. The new CITUX Ws offers the optimal combination of features for achieving success. The grippy rubber outsole provides optimal traction. The combination with the CLOSE-TO-THE-GROUND tech­nology makes the shoe partic­ularly responsive, while its low weight increases flex­ibility. Direct energy return and the carbon-rein­forced BI-Density midsole guarantee the best control possible. The new LOWA® TRAC® sole system ensures quick respons­iveness and optimal push-off. The carbon rein­forcement integrated into the sole minimises energy loss and inhibits sharp objects from penet­rating the sole. For optimal protection, the upper is rein­forced with the laminated REPTEX® SPORT PU coating which makes the shoe much more durable. A light-weight, seam­lessly engineered tongue provides a unique combination of comfort and breath­ability. The amount of padding is reduced to a minimum to ensure the best breath­ability possible.

  • ATR by LOWA

    Now it’s time to run.

    Our new collection ALL TERRAIN RUNNING by LOWA represents another milestone in product devel­opment and the next logical step for the company. Our new trail-running segment incor­porates our decades of experience in the design of grippy outsoles, perfect rolling prop­erties and the best form of comfort into a new usage area.

    “We are taking the next step and are adding the component of speed to complement the line’s sportiness. Now it’s time to run!”

    Alexander Nicolai | LOWA CEO

    • Lightness
      Weight is a critical factor for athletes on the go. This is why LOWA’s trail­running shoes are really light.

    • Speed
      “Speed is key.” With this thought in mind, LOWA developed an innovative trail-running collection.


LOWA® TRAC® SPEED The sticky rubber sole.

Aggressive lugs provide a claw-like grip on a variety of surfaces combined with a sticky rubber for extra grip. Bidirec­tional lugs enable both: quick accel­eration and responsive braking.


WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for CITUX Ws have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.

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.

CLOSE TO THE GROUND For direct contact with the ground

People who venture across Alpine terrain face many chal­lenges. Fields of loose rocks, rocky outcrops and rough terrain place the highest demands on footwear. For this reason, LOWA uses the tech­no­logies of CLOSE TO THE GROUND in the CITUX Ws to create a good feel on the surface. The sole is designed in such a way that the distance to the ground is kept to a bare minimum. The height minim­isation throughout the entire shoe creates a natural feel during chal­lenging tours and provides stable footing on uneven terrain.

TEXTILE LINING The lightness of summer

The textile lining in the CITUX Ws is pleasantly light­weight. The textile material is durable, easy to care for and comfortable.

  • Light and robust
    Shoes lined with textile material impress users with their light weight. The material is also very robust and easy to care for.

  • Optimal comfort in summer
    Shoes with a textile lining are very popular during the summer because they offer the best comfort. Their wide-meshed feature facil­itates good air circu­lation.

The acronym “EVA” stands for “ethylene-vinyl acetate”. It corresponds to an elast­omeric polymer that is used to make plastic materials. The EVA material creates soft and flexible qualities. It is primarily used in the production of shoe and shoe midsoles to provide step cush­ioning. Various degrees of rigidity can be achieved on the basis of the thickness employed.

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.

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.

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.

Upper material


Our synthetic fabrics made of such plastics as nylon, polyester, polypro­pylene and elastane (Lycra) are primarily used as design elements and protection for the upper due to their abrasion resistance and tear strength.
