The most important thing is that your LOWA mountaineering boot is comfortable and offers good support. Since no two feet are the same, LOWA was one of the only companies to provide different lasts: one specifically for women, a narrower one, a wider one, and even an extra wide last for those who live on the large side.
Whether you’re hiking in your own country or in the far-off, snow-capped mountains, whether you’re taking a city trip or hiking from hut to hut, you’ll be sturdy as a mountain goat in a pair of LOWA hiking shoes. The German brand was founded in 1923 (this year exactly 100 years ago) by Lorenz Wagner, son of a local shoemaker, and has since grown into one of the market leaders in Europe.
Putting these shoes on feels like sinking your feet into a soft, leather cushion. LOWA uses only specially selected cow hides from Europe that are completely free of contaminants. They only work with European tanneries that produce in an ecologically and socially responsible way. Other than that, there are no animal products in the shoes, not even in the glue. In short: warm up your calves for an ecologically responsible hike!
