Updates to Lowa Gorgon GTX

  • Lowa created the Gorgon GTX hiking shoe for those who want to go fast on the trails. The shoe designers were able to keep its weight at a minimum, thanks to the lightweight materials used in its upper. For all-weather protection, a Gore-Tex laminate (also found in the Camino GTX and the Tibet GTX) is incorporated in its interior.
  • This Lowa hiking shoe uses the brand’s very own DuraPU midsole. It renders rebound for a more shock absorbent ride. Steadiness comes from the soft nylon stabilizer and the Monowrap Stability Frame. A Climate Control insole cradles the foot, enhancing comfort and support.
  • A rubber outsole exclusively developed by Lowa makes the Gorgon GTX adhere to most terrain types. Its tread design makes it ideal for off-trail use too.
  • The Gorgon GTX from Lowa uses a double injection molding process. This technique directly attaches the sole to the upper for optimal comfort.

Size and fit

Lowa’ Gorgon GTX is a speed hiking shoe for men and women. It is offered in standard width and comes in regular sizes. Generally, it runs true to size. With its lace-up closure, users can customize the fit.

Outsole

This low-top hiking shoe comes with a Lowa speed hiking rubber outsole. Its composition is optimized to provide grip on almost all types of terrain. Its tread design includes varying lug shapes and sizes which enables it to bite into ground surfaces.

Midsole

This vegan-friendly shoe for hiking employs a double injection DuraPU midsole. This material provides adequate rebound and mitigates shock from ground impacts. It is also known for its long-lasting durability. These characteristics enable the Gorgon GTX to yield a more comfortable ride.

Cradling the hiker’s foot is a Climate Control Footbed. This element has a breathable top layer which also aids the movement of moisture away from the foot. It helps enhance comfort and reduces fatigue.

For ground steadiness, this waterproof trail shoe comes with a soft stabilizer (a nylon joint stabilizing element) and the brand-owned Monowrap Stability Frame. The latter elevates the sole and optimizes the level of stability, especially over rugged terrain.

Upper

The upper of the Lowa Gorgon GTX uses a combination of microfiber and synthetic. This combo creates a durable and lightweight build. Its interior is lined with a Gore-Tex laminate to protect against water intrusions. This lining also helps keep a breathable environment. The fabric loops used in its lacing system assist in managing the fit.
