Updates to Lowa Camino LL

  • The Lowa Camino LL features designs that promote trekking comfort. Its plush in-shoe feel is primarily attributed to the chrome-free leather lining of the boot. Its Lowa Flex lacing system also contributes to the footgear’s overall comfort by reducing pressure against the foot through a Lowa-engineered mechanism.
  • This Lowa hiking boot has been constructed to be resolable. This means its Vibram Apptrail outsole can be replaced, especially when certain preconditions set by Lowa are met.

Size and fit

The Lowa Camino LL is a mid-cut boot crafted specifically for male backpackers with regular-width feet. It is offered in a number of sizes, both full and half. It provides a fairly true-to-size fit. A precise and snug lockdown is achieved with the boot’s feature-rich lacing system.


With an outsole by Vibram called Apptrail, the Camino LL is geared towards providing wearers with ample traction where it counts. Its self-cleaning lugs bite into undeveloped surfaces thanks to their considerable height and aggressive treads. This proprietary outsole also has a pronounced heel edge to give backpackers a level of descent assistance. 


The Lowa Camino LL has a DuraPU midsole for underfoot protection, comfort, and stability. It is engineered with the SPS system which offers supination and pronation support. 

Helping the midsole on the cushioning front is the Lowa-owned Climate Comfort Footbed. It has a cupped heel for support and textured surface for slippage prevention. 


Shielding the user’s feet from the elements is the Lowa Camino LL’s nubuck leather upper. It is crafted with the C4 Tongue—a component with four features (asymmetrical pad, flexible curved inset, recessed ankle regions and softer edging on top part) designed for walking comfort. Its soft inner liner is made of chrome-free leather. Its layered and stitched-on construction gives the boot enough sturdiness and support. For abrasion protection, the upper’s heel and forefoot zones are covered with durable rubber rands.  

The majority of the gear’s closure system is comprised of synthetic laces, roller eyelets, and the special lacing tech called Lowa Flex. It also features a tongue stud called X-Lacing which doubles down on lockdown security and holds the tongue firmly in place.
