LOWA: FROM TRADITIONAL TO MODERN
The Bavarian tradition marked the beginning: In 1923, Lorenz Wagner (LOWA) founded the company LOWA in the village of Jetzendorf at the foot of the Alps. The company specialised in the production of oat shoes, which at that time were work shoes and are now compulsory for everyone wearing Bavarian traditional costumes. Especially at that time: the high quality. Every single shoe was made by hand with double seams, a production method from the mountains. Even in the 1920s LOWA had to expand, and as early as 1930 they were producing in a factory building.
LOWA developed mountain boots for mountain troops and laced ski boots - basis for the coming success, which lasts until today. LOWA has always been at the forefront when it comes to innovation. In 1970, LOWA developed the volcano sole, a groundbreaking innovation: 100% moisture protection and insulation against cold without changing the shape. They invented the "Air"-System for ski boots; it provides an optimal fit thanks to an integrated air cushion. The greatest success came in 1980. LOWA introduced the shoe "Trekker" to the market - and thus justified no less than the birth of Trekking shoes.
