Get To Know: LOWA Taurus II

Here at LOWA, we’ve been building the best and most reliable outdoor boots in Europe since 1923. We believe in creating the perfect footwear for every terrain and have developed a range suited for every occasion. Whether your climbing snow-covered mountains or following your local walking path, LOWA boots guarantee comfort and surefootedness, no matter what the conditions.

To demonstrate the range of footwear available, we’ve been highlighting some of our most popular boots in our Get To Know series. Now, we look at the Taurus II, the latest model of our popular all-round shoe!

What is the LOWA Taurus?

The LOWA Taurus is a discreet all-round walking boot designed for long walks on paths and trails. Its mid-cut is designed for optimum comfort at all times, while its all-black design makes it appropriate for a range of occasions.

We have recently launched the LOWA Taurus II, which builds on the previous model by including the latest LOWA technology.

What Materials are in the Taurus II Boot?

The LOWA Taurus’ upper is made of a combination of suede leather and textile fabric. Suede is one of the most flexible and adaptive forms of leather, and it helps give the boot shape and structure. Meanwhile, our synthetic fabrics are designed to provide the best durability and breathability. By combining the two materials, the LOWA Taurus II is one of our most comfortable, well fitting and durable boots. It also weighs under one kilogram per pair, which makes it lighter than most leather walking boots. You can learn more about the textiles we use on our upper lining and material page.

The boot also features Gore-Tex lining, the market leader when it comes to waterproof boots. The Gore-Tex lining keeps the foot breathable while also protecting it from the elements, meaning you can head outdoor with confidence!

The LOWA Loren sole is secured with our single injection moulding method, which means the boot will feel flexible underfoot, yet still very supportive. Our Monowrap technology, complete with TPU stabiliser and PU frame, further ensures the Taurus’ durability and comfort on long walks.

What Activities does the LOWA Taurus II Suit?

The LOWA Taurus II is designed to perform on a range of outdoor trails. However, it is ideally suited to paths and trails. The Taurus is also built with essential travel in mind, so it’s a real allrounder.

It is not suited to big mountain trips and alpine trails, however, if you are looking for a shoe for long walks along nature trails, the Taurus offers incredible comfort and durability across long distances.
