Nordic walking Lightly covering terrain.
“Nordic walking is an optimal introductory sport for outdoor enthusiasts. It puts your whole body to the test. It gives your muscles a great workout and stimulates your metabolism. It is certainly much more than a stroll with poles. Our sports company also has models for Nordic walkers in our collection. These shoes are perfect for this type of exercise.”
— Michael | LOWA Product manager
No matter whether you are scaling a steep mountain or strolling from café to café along chilly city streets of town – GORE-TEX footwear will always keep your feet pleasantly dry. Your footwear will always be waterproof and provide optimal breathability.
LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE
Conceived by LOWA to meet the challenges of real-world use, the profile design of the LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE is made from an optimised rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the backcountry and off trail.
To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of is bonded to the upper in a technically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU-foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.
With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole provides the very best comfort. This three-dimensional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and supports it when the shoe wearer ventures across an uneven surface. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.
The midsole is the leading contributor to the footwear’s rolling properties and cushioning. This midsole is made of a specially developed plastic: LOWA DynaPU®. The special feature: It retains its restoring force even when it’s pressed together thousands of times. As a result, the finished boots will maintain their exceptional cushioning properties even after you have walked many kilometres in them.
To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for female footwear have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.
Women’s calves begin lower than men’s do. For this reason, the outdoor footwear that LOWA makes for women is equipped with specially padded edging. This is both softer and more flexible.
Supports rolling motion Walking shoes support the wearer’s feet during the typical rolling motion that occurs when the right technique is used for every step.
Comfortable Comfortable footwear is essential for long distances covered on foot. This is why LOWA places such a high priority on exact fit, something that is perfectly designed to handle short or long strolls.
Lightness Weight is a critical factor for athletes on the go. This is why LOWA’s Nordic walking shoes are really light.
