Provides sufficient grip on slippery trails

This waterproof hiker from Lowa provides sufficient grip on slippery trails with its abrasion-resistant rubber outsole, called Surround Trac. Multi-directional lugs are engineered strategically around its surface, delivering enhanced grip over soft-soiled terrain. It also comes with a heel brake and a toothy rear region to grant hikers improved maneuverability during descents.

Shock absorbing and stable cushioning

The Aerox GTX Lo Surround is built with the Double Injection DynaPU midsole with shock-absorbing zones for terrain protection, stability, and cushioning. The holes in its frame double down on ventilation by expelling heat underfoot. Within its layer are two Lowa-exclusive technologies: a soft stabilizer and the Monowrap Frame. The former contributes to the midsole’s stabilizing capability, while the latter provides adventurers with increased lateral support.

Keeps the foot dry and fresh 

Additional underfoot comfort is made possible by the shoe’s removable footbed. It has a cupped design around the heel for added support. It also has perforations to help keep the foot dry and fresh for longer.
