Lowa Lavaredo GTX size and fit

The Lavaredo GTX is a men’s hiking boot from Lowa that generally runs true to size. It comes in standard and wide widths. The latter uses a WXL last which offers a larger toe box and more room at the metatarsals. Its classic lace-up closure permits a snug, customized fit.

Outsole

The outsole of the Lavaredo GTX is the Vibram Natural. It has deep, aggressive lugs which render traction on most types of terrain. Its wider platform stabilizes, and it can easily flex for walking comfort. Its cemented construction allows it to be resoled, meaning the sole can be replaced, for a cost.

Midsole

Using a DuraPU with SPS (Supination Pronation Support) as its midsole, the Lowa Lavaredo GTX renders a supportive and comfortable ride even on long distances. The SPS system prevents supination and overpronation, reducing fatigue. A medium shank designed for trekking with a light load is added for stability while a Climate Control footbed enhances comfort and breathability.

Upper

The Lavaredo GTX uses a durable nubuck leather for its upper. It has a Gore-Tex laminate that gives water protection and breathability. Lowa has added toe and heel guards to reinforce the upper and protect against abrasions.

The combination of open and closed hooks permit a quicker lace up. The X-lacing with a tongue stud keeps the tongue in place. It reduces friction and distributes pressure evenly. Also, its padded mid-cut collar grants comfort.
