The Alpine Expert II GTX is a reliable and robust winter mountaineering, ready to take you on all your cold weather adventures. Primaloft 400g insulation provides excellent warmth across the whole foot, while the Gore-Tex lining provides the ultimate barrier to all weather conditions. Thanks to the LOWA Flexfit, feet can roll more effectively and naturally as the upper of a hiking boot can bend more easily, saving energy and increasing comfort. The boots eyelets have been repositioned, and a flexible lace hook has been used too that improves heel comfort and facilitates bending. The Vibram ALP TRAC® ICE sole unit has been optimised for use in high alpine terrain, with a high tread depth and Vibram rubber compound combining to providing solid grip, while the climbing zone at the front ensures precision grip. The sturdy midsole means the Alpine Expert II is compatible with automatic crampons.

This product can be resoled by a specialist. They're designed in a way where the upper of the shoe is retained, and a new sole can be added to it.
To ensure that the laces run flexibly and smoothly through the eyelets, small roller balls minimise friction in the metal loops and provide easy lacing.
To reduce the stress caused every time the foot is planted, and make heel support more comfortable, a heel cushion was developed for the shank as a way of creating a pleasant walking sensation.
A special form of heel rubber is attached using tension, creating a Slingshot effect which provides stability and generates a powerful restoring force.
Particularly rigid, the midsole will remain firm even when subjected to stress.
Vibram® has been one of the leading brands of high-quality soles for many years, offering a variety of rubber blends and sole units to cover each boots specific end use requirements.
Patented LOWA technology holds the tongue in place both vertically and horizontally. This prevents slippage, reducing pressure points or blisters. The X-Lacing ensures that the pressure of the laces is transferred not just to the hooks but to the tongue as well.
