My Rating

  • The Sassa LL Mid is Lowa’s offering to female backpackers who wish to take on challenging treks with as much comfort and versatility as possible. The boot’s ability to provide that soft in-shoe feeling comes from its leather-lined (LL) interior.
  • Giving users confidence over slippery surfaces and steep terrain is the Lowa-exclusive Elika outsole. As it is fully resolable, it can be replaced with a new one at a cost. 

Lowa’s Sassa LL Mid is a generally true-to-size, mid-cut backpacking gear for women. It is listed in a number of whole and half sizes. In terms of width, it caters to those with regular feet. Its lace-up closure system with flex loops allows wearers to configure the boot’s fit to their preference.

The Lowa Sassa LL Mid is capable of preventing users from losing their footing over virtually all types of terrain with its Elika outsole. Aggressively shaped lugs take up most of its surface, producing grip in nearly every direction. Helping trekkers descend and ascend slopes with a level of control, on the other hand, is the outsole’s pronounced heel edge and ridged forefoot zone. 

Cushioning the foot and keeping the wearer’s balance steady on rugged terrain is the gear’s two-component polyurethane (PU) midsole. It has a noticeably chunky heel to mitigate shock in every heel strike. Its tapered build gives the footwear an overall sleek profile.  It has a contoured footbed for additional cushioning 

The unit includes Lowa’s Medium Shank. This full-length support component is designed for backpacking trips with light packs.

Donning the Sassa LL Mid means having the foot wrapped in an over-the-ankle suede leather upper. Its interior offers a comfy hug thanks to its leathered-up liner. It is built with minimal seams to prevent uncomfortable rubbing and pressure points. Sturdy overlays cover a good portion of the heel and toe sections to bolster the boot’s protection against scuffs and scrapes. Its closure system uses synthetic laces and combination eyelets with speed hooks.
