Ascent-focused outsole

To grant a secure foothold on mixed terrain, Lowa has used the Alp Trac outsole from Vibram. It has self-cleaning, medium-depth treads and multidirectional lugs which provide grip. A large Climbing Zone is designed at the tip of the sole to make the user's steps precise.

The brand-patented close-to-the-rock technology is designed to have a small distance between the foot and rocks to deliver a good toe hold during ascents. On the other hand, the close-to-the-ground attribute adjusts the height of the stack and platform for a more secure ride.

Lowa Alpine Pro GTX's crampon-ready midsole

The midsole of the Alpine Pro GTX is made of a crampon-ready low profile DuraPU. This is a shock-absorbent material and offers comfort through its durable cushioning. It uses a moisture-wicking Climate Control footbed which has a breathable top layer and a foam that conforms to the user’s foot.

Supportive and shock-absorbing cushioning

The comfort from the insole is enhanced by Lowa’s Shock absorber tech which is an integrated heel cushioning. This is attached to the insole for improved comfort and rebound. The Anatomical fit technology renders arch support, and it works jointly with the hard shank for a more supportive stride.

Lowa Alpine Pro GTX's minimalist upper

This mountaineering boot has an abrasion-resistant synthetic fabric lined with Gore-Tex. Lowa used their proprietary lasted method to ensure seamless and smooth incorporation of the lining. This technique reduces friction so that blisters and hot spots can be prevented. Its Gore-Tex membrane delivers a waterproof and breathable in-shoe environment.

Features for a glove-like fit

The Lowa Flex Lacing incorporated in the Alpine Pro GTX enhances walking comfort through its features. It has a to-the-toe lacing for a secure foot lockdown, and individually mounted lacing hardware that is free-moving. A soft textile material is used on the hems at the ankle, and the underside of the tongue has flex-ridges. The “floating” hook, which is the third hardware from the top of the foot, allows the user to tighten the laces without unwarranted pressure on the ankle.

Lowa added the Fit wing technology to direct the tension for more control at the heel properly. A pull tab is situated at the heel to assist in easier on and off. Also, the brand added a high wall rubber rand that wraps the boot for protection.
