Lowa creates some of the best hiking boots available while following the most upstanding business practices. The brand makes 95 percent of its products in Europe, in areas with the strictest environmental laws in the world. The boots feature top-quality Italian and German leathers, and leathers made in these countries are also produced in tanneries that have their own sewage plants to abate pollution. Made from cows used for meat, the leather production makes as little waste as possible. The brand also takes care of its workers. For example, it makes sure that the stream water near its Bavarian factory stays clean.
Because the hiking boots last five to seven years, fewer used boots end up in
landfills. There is less waste, and the boots are more economical for you in the
long run. Lowa produces outstanding men's and women's boots, with numerous designs
to be utilized on all types of terrain. They are made to be supportive and exquisitely
cushioned, without any extra weight or unnecessary bulk. Providing all day comfort
and long-lasting materials, Lowa makes boots you will enjoy wearing year after
The brand's backpacking boots, such as the Ticam GTX, help maintain stability

Vibram soles, the boots keep you stable on rugged terrain and over long distances.
Distance hiking and trekking boots, such as the Camino GTX, ensure comfort in
varying temperatures and weather conditions. Weatherproof features, such as waterproof

evaporate. The PU insole is designed to maximize balance, and the Vibram Apptrail
Outsole ensures peerless downhill traction on all kinds of terrain. In hot or
rainy weather, the boots will stay comfortable and supportive for long periods
Lowa uses a patented monowrap construction design that allows its boots to be
very lightweight, yet also supportive and durable. The Gore-Tex linings promote
dry feet and prevent the development of blisters after hours of hiking. This unbeatable
quality, on top of the brand's upstanding environmental and labor practices, results
in a boot you can feel good about buying. Not only will the boots make your trekking
as pleasant as possible, they will provide long-lasting quality. Lowa boots come
with a 12-month warranty, because the brand feels a sense of responsibility to
provide a wonderful experience for its customers.
