Who should buy the Lowa Mauria GTX
The Lowa Mauria GTX can supply the performance that female adventurers need on the trail. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking boot that offers waterproofing and breathability.
- Prefer a hiking boot that grants support and comfortable cushioning.
- Prefer a hiking boot that offers excellent traction on all types of surfaces.
Excellent optimal grip
This backpacking gear for women is equipped with a Vibram Apptrail outsole. It has irregularly shaped lugs (inner part), block-like lugs (outer portion), and an increased contact area for optimal grip.
Render additional traction during a descent
The tread uses a self-cleaning design to shed off debris. The sole’s front heel edge is pronounced to render additional traction during a descent. Moreover, the boot’s cemented sole construction allows resoling at an additional cost.
Comfortable cushioning and shock reduction
This boot is imbued with Lowa’s signature DuraPU midsole which delivers cushioning and shock reduction. It’s paired with a Supination Pronation Support (SPS) system, which consists of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) inserts applied within the softer PU midsole mold. These inserts help prevent supination and overpronation–two causes of foot pain and fatigue.
Maintains a fresh and dry in-shoe environment
The Lowa Mauria GTX has an insole called Climate Control Footbed. Its breathable top layer helps maintain a fresh and dry in-shoe environment. Also, this backpacking boot contains a Hard Stabilizer, a type of joint that’s designed to support the foot during extreme outdoor adventures.
Waterproof and breathable
The Mauria GTX owes its durability and rugged looks to its nubuck leather upper. It has rubber rands in the forefoot and heel sections for scuff protection. A Gore-Tex fabric lines the upper to make it waterproof and breathable.
Excellent ankle support
The leather hiker’s anatomically-shaped C4 tongue reduces pressure on the foot. The upper also features Flexfit technology to help the ankles move freely.
Prevents slippage and blisters from forming
This mid-cut backpacking boot comes with Lowa’s patented X-Lacing feature to hold the tongue in place, both horizontally and vertically. This technology helps prevent slippage and blisters from forming.
There is a series of metal roller eyelets that hold the laces with the least amount of friction. A cam lace loop feature called I-Lock is placed on top of the foot. It works by securing the laces and allows flexible shaft lacing.
