Exceptional midsole technologies

Lowa’s Light Lady GTX utilizes a DuraPU with SPS System in its midsole. Polyurethane (PU) is used in the footwear industry because it can maintain its resiliency in the long run. It doesn't compress easily and can retain its shape over time.

The Supination Pronation Support (SPS) System, is embedded into the softer part of the PU mold through TPU inserts. Users benefit from this technology as it corrects gait, preventing overpronation or supination. Fatigue is also reduced especially when tackling long distances. Additional support is supplied by a medium nylon stabilizer.

The patented Climate Control Footbed of Lowa has a breathable layer and a slow-reacting foam for an adjustable fit. It works with the Climate Control System of Lowa which helps keep the foot dry and manages airflow in and out of the Light Lady GTX. With the right amount of ventilation, blisters and hot spots are prevented.

Durable nubuck leather upper

The Light Lady GTX features a wear-resistant nubuck leather upper. This type of leather has a smooth and velvety feel. This material is lined with a waterproof Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane–a technology that helps maintain the breathability and comfort of the shoe.

It also has moderate insulation that permits users to experience comfort in mild to cool outdoor conditions. The construction of the upper uses fewer seams, thru its Minimal Seams construction to prevent possible chafing and hot spots.

Comfortable and sturdy 

With patented technologies applied to this backpacking boot, the brand promises long-lasting comfort and hassle-free ride. The X-Lacing system, which uses a stud, secures the tongue in place through the laces.

This knob ensures that the tongue maintains its position vertically and horizontally to distribute pressure evenly. It helps prevent slippage and pressure points, thus reducing the occurrence of blisters.

The C4-Tongue cradles the foot with its anatomically shaped design. It promotes comfort and eliminates the need for an extended break-in period. It features asymmetrical padding, a soft edging found on the top of the tongue, a flexible, curved insert and recessed ankle areas.
