Introducing our NEW LOWA Kid's Range

LOWA Kids Range

About a quarter of human bones are located in the feet.


DR MICHA BAHR

And especially with younger children, this bone tissue is not fully developed and the tendons are also much more elastic than in adult feet. In addition, children are less sensitive to pain because the nerves are not mature. If you ask a child in the shoe store whether the shoe is too big or too small, they might find answering difficult, or may be clawing their toes without it being unpleasant or painful. Children's feet are therefore not just smaller versions of their adult feet, they are far more demanding.

For this reason, children's shoes at LOWA are a separate entity with a great deal of specialised development.

All shoes from the children's collection have a special slat which leaves more space in the toe area, so as not to impair healthy foot development. For trekking or hiking boots, particular care is taken to align the hips and ankle to minimize the risk of kinking - one of the most common injuries to children when walking. In addition, the shoe is kept as light as possible in order not to stress the joints and the spine. A further aspect is the support to foot development - this is to be encouraged and trained, which is why unnecessary padding is dispensed with. For the 2018 collection, LOWA has even taken the expert advice of pediatrician Dr. Micha Bahr. 

HOW CAN WE ENSURE A PERFECT FIT FOR MY CHILD'S FEET?

A relatively safe method is the removal of the insole, which is always possible with LOWA shoes. This not only shows the length of the sole, but also the width. This process should be repeated at regular intervals to ensure that little ones have not out-grown their current shoes.
