LOWA WALKING SHOES - 100 YEARS OF SHOEMAKING CRAFTSMANSHIP
The company LOWA Sportschuhe GmbH looks back on a family history rich in tradition. In 1923 Lorenz Wagner took over the business in Jetzendorf near Munich from his parents. He changed the name to LOWA, with the brand name reflecting the initials of his name. After Wagner's passing, Sepp Lederer, a former apprentice and at the same time son-in-law, took over the company together with Wagner's daughter in 1953. After their great success in the 70s and 80s, many innovative creations followed, including the first trekking shoe model "Trekker" in 1982. In 1993, the Italian Tecnica Group took over Lowa. Under their leadership, the brand developed into a well-known and successful manufacturer for outdoor shoes of all categories. Since then, LOWA has been the first choice for many outdoor sports enthusiasts and leisure hikers when it comes to trekking, hiking and walking. LOWA stands for robustness, innovations and wearing comfort even on long stretches of rough terrain.
WHY ARE LOWA MOUNTAIN BOOTS SO SPECIAL?
Hiking on even terrain is already a challenge for hiking boots. Hiking on uneven ground, on the other hand, places high demands on the quality of materials and workmanship. Mountain hiking, trekking and hiking all require water-repellent materials, because they can go through meadows, muddy terrain and forest paths. For long distances, it is also essential that the shoe is comfortable. LOWA stands for robust workmanship, innovations and wearing comfort even on long distances through rough terrain. In order to combine all aspects qualitatively, the company relies on high-quality cowhide leather, which is produced exclusively in Europe. For vegan hiking enthusiasts, the brand offers pure textile materials completely without animal components.
LOWA HIKING BOOTS AND THE VARIETY OF MODELS
LOWA produces multi-functional shoes with which you can also go on long hikes. One popular shoe, for example, is the Renegade GTX, which allows you to walk through puddles and keep your feet dry. It is completely water-repellent thanks to its lining made from high-quality functional materials and also offers you optimum ventilation. The upper is stable enough to protect your foot from twisting even in mountainous and gravel-heavy terrain. A reinforced heel gives you the best possible foot roll, which your feet will thank you for during a long day of hiking. A deep tread, a midsole and a high-quality lining also ensure comfortable wear. Durable materials such as nubuck, suede and full-grain leather as well as various textile uppers offer you high-quality and robust shoes for medium to ultra-long hikes. For fast outdoor and trekking runs, a special trail running profile on the sole provides sufficient grip under your feet. Special Vibram soles give you a secure grip on wet and slippery terrain. The brand's own LOWA Rubber Outsole provides sufficient grip in the terrain. MONOWRAP® sole constructions offer you the same.

You should wear mid-height LOWA shoes for light hikes through the city or on paved trails. Because they are usually lightweight, you can easily stow them in any backpack, for example, if you want to go for a walk on the beach. In wet weather in autumn and cold temperatures in winter, it's best to choose hiking boots that have a waterproof toe cap. The shoes should also be ankle-high to prevent snow and moisture from penetrating. For demanding mountain tours, models that reach up to the ankle with a stable shaft are ideal so that you have a secure hold. No matter what outdoor adventure you have in mind, it will be even more fun with LOWA hiking boots. At Keller Sports you will find a wide selection of different LOWA outdoor shoe models. In the LOWA Outlet online shop at Keller Sports you can find reduced LOWA shoes from the previous season or as special offers. It pays to be quick!
