Overview of this review
Lowa Aerox GTX Lo Surround notable features
The Lowa Aerox GTX Lo Surround is a lightweight hiking footgear intended for adventurers needing an athletic kind of performance on the trail. Its waterproof membrane—Gore-Tex Surround—works closely with the midsole’s ventilation channels in providing users with enhanced breathability.
Its sole unit has rockered heel and forefoot zones for improved mobility on level surfaces. It is made up of a Lowa-owned outsole, an injected midsole, the Monowrap Frame, and a soft stabilizer.
Size and fit
Lowa’s Aero GTX Lo Surround is a generally true-to-size, low-cut day hiking shoe for men and women. It is offered in standard width in whole and half sizes. The women’s variant is built on a gender-specific last. Wearers may adjust its fit to their preference using the hiker’s speed lacing system.
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.
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.
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.
Enclosing the foot in the Lowa Aero GTX Lo Surround is the footwear’s part microfiber, part synthetic below-the-ankle upper. It is imbued with Gore-Tex Surround, making the gear waterproof and breathable in virtually every direction. Both its sides are engineered with synthetic overlays for scuff protection. These overlays have a slightly different look in the women’s version. Lowa designers also furnished the hiker’s upper with a supportive heel counter and a protective toe rand.
The footgear’s closure system is comprised of a string-like cord for a lace and combination eyelets. The lace comes with an adjustable slider made of hard plastic. The remainder of the lace may be tucked securely through the tongue’s lace keeper.
