My Rating

  • The Strato Evo LL Qc from Lowa is a robust hiking gear ideal for women who require a touch of elegance in their getup. Its modern look largely comes from its monochromatic leather upper.
  • Two Lowa-exclusive technologies power this gear—the DynaPU midsole and the Hybrid Trac outsole. The former offers cushioning and stability, while the latter provides surface grip on tricky surfaces. As a unit, they give the boot rockered zones (at the heel and forefoot) which improve the user's performance during transitions. 

The Strato Evo LL Qc from Lowa is a mid-cut day hiking boot specifically made for women. Its generally true-to-size fit caters to wearers with standard-width feet. It comes in an assortment of whole and half sizes. The boot’s speed lacing system permits users to lock in their desired fit.

Whether on trails or urban pavements, the Lowa Hybrid Trac outsole delivers adequate slip and skid resistance. Its combination of low-profile lugs and tread patterns gives the user enough traction, even on inclines and slopes. It is capable of shedding dirt and mud with every step as it is engineered to be self-cleaning. 

Lowa’s DynaPU midsole is what protects and stabilizes wearers over unpredictable terrain. Since it is made of polyurethane foam, this brand-exclusive midsole has a nice blend of springiness (rebound properties), cushioning, and stress resilience to it. It works in conjunction with the boot’s Medium Stabilizer, a Lowa-engineered nylon joint that delivers a kind of support designed for the outdoors. 

The Strato Evo LL Qc’s simplistic yet sleek upper is made of nubuck leather. Its inner liner is imbued with high-grade leather, providing extra comfort around the collar zone. Perforations are engineered around the cuff and ankle line for breathability. 

For fit precision, Lowa engineers gave the leather hiker a fairly straightforward lacing system. They opted for metallic open hooks at the shaft for speedier lace-ups.
