Our partner, premium outdoor brand LOWA, is famous for its outstanding mountain shoes. With its two new models, the LOWA Locarno and the LOWA Maddox, the label has now launched two excellent hybrid shoes onto the market. The outdoor shoes are just as suited to the city as they are to the mountains.

Who wouldn’t want to take just one pair of shoes on holiday? Whether you’re heading off on a hiking holiday or a city break, these LOWA shoes are ready for anything. It’s time to introduce you to the LOWA Locarno and the LOWA Maddox:

LOWA Locarno: multifunctional no matter where, no matter when

It’s clear to see that mountain shoes, in general, were made for rough terrain. Robust, a bit cumbersome and, on the whole, not really suited for the city. The LOWA Locarno range, however, is treading a new path. These shoes are as tough as a mountain boot but at the same time impress with a casual urban look.

With these shoes, you can go from enjoying a short walk around the city to heading off for a spontaneous hike. The functional hybrid shoes succeed in bridging the gap between lifestyle shoe and outdoor shoe. Intelligent use of technology makes the LOWA Locarno models multifunctional all round. LOWA Locarno GTX Low Damen The LOWA Locarno comes in Lo and Mid versions for men, and Lo and QC versions for women. As the name suggests, the LOWA Locarno Lo are low-top shoes. The Mid and QC models reach up to the ankle. All LOWA Locarno models come with a sturdy LOWA Hybrid Trac sole that provides just as much grip on smooth paving as it does on slippery mountain paths.

On top of the sole there is LOWA DynaPU material, which is particularly comfortable. DynaPU is a light, flexible and extremely durable material made up of thousands of little foam bubbles. It’s similar to adidas BOOST material and, just like BOOST, DynaPU stubbornly retains its original shape, so you can enjoy the same cushioning after walking several miles as you did when you first put on your shoes. LOWA Locarno GTX QC Apart from that, all three of the LOWA Locarno models (Lo, Mid and QC) come with a Gore-Tex lining. The famous GTX membrane makes these hybrid outdoor shoes both waterproof and breathable. Thanks to soft nubuck leather with textile elements, these shoes don’t look like classic outdoor shoes - they look great with jeans. On the whole, these are true lifestyle-outdoor all-rounders.

LOWA Maddox: sporty, innovative, dynamic

Unlike the LOWA Locarno, the LOWA Maddox shoes are part of the so-called all-terrain sports shoe category. To be considered “all-terrain”, a shoe has to fulfil certain requirements, among them stability, cushioning and waterproofing. The LOWA Maddox models are a great example of what an all-terrain shoe should be like. They’re ideal for all kinds of different sports, they impress with innovative features and they encourage dynamic energy during every activity. LOWA Maddox All Terrain Innovative LOWA Monowrap is an extremely stable frame that will keep your foot in place within the shoe during faster runs. Just like the LOWA Locarno models, Maddox shoes come with DynaPU cushioning for a springy and energised run. Another element both shoe lines have in common is the Gore-Tex shaft, which makes the shoes 100% waterproof - perfect for mountainous terrain or a city tour. LOWA Maddox GTX The also highly innovative Speed Lace system adds to the sport-ready style of the LOWA Maddox, which isn’t present in the Locarno. A quick pull is enough to lace up the shoes and enjoy a perfect fit.

Whether you’re trail running, hiking or enjoying a relaxed stroll in the city, the LOWA Maddox impresses with its athletic, innovative and dynamic construction. It also boasts a lifestyle look that makes it the ideal choice of footwear for your next holiday. Check out the shoe for yourself.
