For nearly 100 years, LOWA have been acclaimed as the finest outdoor boots in the world by climbers, mountaineers, hikers, the media and certified quality testers. Our attention to every detail in design and European manufacturing has earned our reputation for building the world's most comfortable and durable boots since 1923.
We believe in polyurethane (PU). It's a terrific shock absorber and longer lasting than the more common EVA midsole. Plus, PU involves a much cleaner, environmental manufacturing process than EVA. Combine a LOWA PU midsole with one of LOWA's patented sole units, or a VIBRAM® acclaimed sole unit and you get a double dose of durability, comfort and superb performance.
