    Why don’t we stay at home?

    Snow-covered trees and a white winter landscape – these are more than good reasons to head outdoors. A winter hike is a one-day tour done in icy or snowy conditions on easy trails. The tour can lead over either moun­tainous or flat terrain. Winter hikers generally use trails that have been cleared. The snow on them will be no deeper than ankle-high, so hikers don’t need snowshoes or mini-crampons to complete their tours.


    “Winter hikes are something very special. You rarely run into anyone, and the natural sights you see are simply amazing. When I think about the footwear I need, comfort is naturally a priority. But the height of the upper and the lining material are also very important. When I set off on a hike through the snow, I’ll need a higher upper with an insu­lating lining. But if I’ll just be hiking through the woods, all I need is a normal MID-CUT boot with a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane.”

    Matthias | LOWA CSO

    • Insu­lation
      LOWA winter shoes are outfitted with insu­lation made of GORE-TEX warm lining or Prim­aLoft®.

    • 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.

    • Stability
      To ensure sufficient grip during hikes, both the sole and the upper should be stable.


VIBRAM ARCTIC GRIP TRAC® II Taking winter weather in stride

The model NABUCCO GTX Ws comes with a Vibram Arctic Grip sole. This sole represents state-of-the-art tech­nology. The sole is made of a special rubber compound that is designed to deliver high performance and quality. The sole is designed to produce good grip on snowy surfaces.

The large profile studs, their arrangement and a Vibram rubber compound are the key reasons why the VIBRAM ARCTIC GRIP TRAC® II performs so well in winter conditions. It has everything it needs. Models with this sole come with a directly injected midsole made of LOWA DynaPU®.


GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The NABUCCO GTX Ws 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.

“No matter whether snow is falling, rain is plunging from the sky or the sun is shining – children wearing GORE-TEX footwear can romp around to their heart’s content during any type of weather.”

SUPPORT FRAME Comfortably framed

With the LOWA MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the NABUCCO GTX Ws provides the very best comfort. This three-dimen­sional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and support it when the shoe wearer ventures across uneven surfaces. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.

  • Good guidance for the foot
    The foot is optimally nestled into the shoe thanks to the frame’s three-dimen­sional design.

  • Increased comfort
    The special midsole design ensures snug footing in the shoe. The foot is pleasantly cradled by the three-dimen­sional frame.

  • Light­weight
    The LOWA-MONOWRAP® is made of a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight material.

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.

SINGLE INJECTION The bond between the sole and upper

The NABUCCO GTX Ws is footwear onto which the outsole has been directly injected. This manu­fac­turing technique creates an excep­tionally precise and very strong bond between the sole and upper.

  • Light­weight
    This process uses a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight foam padding.

  • Cush­ioning
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a foam padding that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • A wide range of design options
    Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multi­faceted prop­erties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.

LOWA DynaPU® Noticeable cush­ioning puts a spring in your step

The midsole is the leading contributor to the foot­wear’s rolling prop­erties and cush­ioning. In the NABUCCO GTX Ws, this midsole is made of a specially developed plastic: LOWA DynaPU®. The special feature: It retains its restoring force even when it’s pressed together thousands of times. As a result, the finished boots will maintain their excep­tional cush­ioning prop­erties even after you have walked many kilo­metres in them.

  • Good comfort
    The special material devel­opment is char­ac­terised by good cush­ioning prop­erties. As a result, walking comfort and rolling prop­erties have been noticeably increased – even during long hikes.

  • Good rebound effect
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a foam padding that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • Light­weight
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a very light­weight foam padding. The result is a sole that offers the best form of comfort.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for NABUCCO GTX 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.

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.

Non-woven fabric

Non-woven fabric is a collection of fibre of limited length, filaments or cut yarns. Used as a component/covering of feet beds, the layer of non-woven fabric absorbs the heat generated by the foot, creating a pleasant feeling of comfort even in cold weather.

Construction methods

Injected Construction

To create optimal cush­ioning and the very best comfort, the soles of LOWA multi­func­tional shoes are directly injected. The complex injection process attaches the slip-lasted upper directly to the sole. This method creates shoes that offer optimal cush­ioning and are partic­ularly light­weight.
