Size and fit

The Lowa Alpine Pro GTX Le is a mountaineering boot for men which comes in standard width and regular sizes. It generally runs true to size. The Fit Wing feature delivers an ideal tensioning at the heel which prevents slippage. The Slingshot design and traditional lace-up closure grant a snugger fit at the heel and across the foot, respectively. 


Providing traction on various ground surfaces is the Vibram Alp Trac outsole. This abrasion-resistant material has an alpine tread design which is able to self-clean, enhancing grip.

With the brand’s close-to-the-ground and close-to-the-rock technologies, safety on the trails and ground sensitivity are enhanced. Lowa can also resole (replace the sole) this at a cost.


The Alpine Pro GTX Le uses polyurethane  (PU) foam as its midsole. It cradles the foot for a comfortable stride. Lowa designers added an insole with an integrated heel cushioning which optimizes rebound and lessens the negative ground impact. It is wrapped in a PU foam that provides arch support


The suede leather upper of this mid-cut mountaineering boot combined with a Gore-Tex laminate renders protection and flexibility. It also prevents water from penetrating inside while keeping a breathable environment.

It features the X-lacing  which uses a knob to keep the tongue in place. It helps distribute pressure from the laces evenly, and at the same time, preventing friction. A rubber rand wraps the base of the boot for added protection while combination eyelets make up the lacing system of the Alpine Pro GTX Le.
