MissionThoughtful design, superb materials, enduring handcrafted quality and sustainable manufacturing processes are what make LOWA, LOWA. We call it The DNA of the Outdoors.
Company OverviewLOWA Boots makes a full line of outdoor boots, from mountaineering boots to backpacking and hiking boots to lightweight trail runners.
DescriptionWe are committed to a tradition of sensible and sustainable manufacturing. We produce 95% of our footwear in Europe, following the strictest environmental laws in the world.
The cows who drink from the stream behind our factory stay healthy, not to mention our workers, families and neighbors.
Only outdoor boot manufacturer to be granted ISO 9001 status for highest quality construction & process standards.
How To Be Good Citizens:
We build our boots in Europe, under the world's most stringent manufacturing, environmental and labor regulations.
How to Build a Boot That Simply Fits Better:
We've earned a global reputation for great-fitting boots. Details like how a LOWA boot tongue automatically centers on your foot make a big difference when you're out on the trail.
How To Build Longer-Lasting Boots:
The same PU (polyurethane) that makes our boots so supportive is also the most durable midsole material available. PU is more expensive, so not widely used. Boots made with PU last at least twice as long as boots with EVA midsoles. With PU, you get better value for your money & fewer boots end up in the landfill.
How To Make Boots with Gore-Tex Linings Fit Better:
Our patented, lasted GORE-TEX® liner is more durable and creates a smoother fit, less potential for blisters or discomfort.
How To build a Lighter Weight boot That's Still Wicked Stable:
Our patented Monowrap construction wraps the foot in a lightweight, yet firmly supportive, PU frame that delivers excellent stability with very lightweight upper materials.
How To Support The Foot in Comfort:
We use a softer PU (polyurethane) in our midsoles that provides better shock absorption and ultimate comfort underfoot. Why cradle the foot in comfort? Because it's your foot, that's why. When feet begin to hurt, the fun is done.
