Unbeatable Vibram outsole

Providing traction on various ground surfaces is the Vibram Alp Trac outsole. This abrasion-resistant material has an alpine tread design that is able to self-clean, enhancing grip.

With the brand’s close-to-the-ground and close-to-the-rock technologies, safety on the trails and ground sensitivity is enhanced. Lowa can also resole (replace the sole) this at a cost.

This boot is also compatible with automatic (step-in) crampons.

Supportive midsole of the Alpine Pro

The Alpine Pro GTX Le uses polyurethane  (PU) foam as its midsole. It cradles the foot for a comfortable stride. Lowa designers added an insole with an integrated heel cushioning which optimizes rebound and lessens the negative ground impact. It is wrapped in a PU foam that provides arch support.

Secure and waterproof

The suede leather upper of this mid-cut mountaineering boot combined with a Gore-Tex laminate renders protection and flexibility. It also prevents water from penetrating inside while keeping a breathable environment.

Convenient X-lacing

It features the X-lacing which uses a knob to keep the tongue in place. It helps distribute pressure from the laces evenly, and at the same time, prevents friction. A rubber rand wraps the base of the boot for added protection while combination eyelets make up the lacing system of the Alpine Pro GTX Le.
