The trekking model VIGO GTX can dynam­ically take on the chal­lenges it faces on the trail by drawing on its multi­direc­tionally arranged tread edges. Their upper made of full grain leather and fabric provides the stability that every user needs while lace hooks facilitate improved heel grip. The boot’s fit can be indi­vidually adjusted by using the two addi­tional hooks on the cuff. This feature assures that users have all of the support they need when they ascend and descend mountains. The waterproof GORE-TEX membrane continuously creates a balanced climate in the boot, a feature that keeps feet dry at all times and prevents them from working up a sweat even during exhausting hikes. Sharp rocks and loose scree do not stand a chance of causing harm thanks to the foot­wear’s robust TPU toe cap. Looks matter, too. Prints on the side and embroidered elements underscore the athletic heritage of the mid-cut trekking boot. No matter whether you want to take a short excursion in nature or a longer tour in low mountain regions – the light­weight trekking boots VIGO GTX will enable you to reach the widest range of destin­ations. You will experience, kilometre after kilometre, just what these athletic multi­talents are capable of thanks to their func­tional features, unlimited wearing comfort and the continuously balanced foot climate that they provide in any type of weather.

    Why do we prefer to explore nature on foot?

    A day hike lasts for less than 24 hours and leads back to the starting point. The tour can cover either moun­tainous or flat terrain. The primary aim is to experience nature. The hike is usually done with light backpacks, and its degree of difficulty can vary greatly.

    • Cush­ioning
      Good boot cush­ioning is necessary to create a pleasant feeling during each step a hiker takes. This ensures optimal comfort over a long period of time.

    • Comfortable
      Comfortable footwear is essential for long distances covered on foot. This is why LOWA places such a high priority on exact fit, something that is perfectly designed to handle short or long strolls.

    • Stability
      To ensure sufficient grip during hikes, both the sole and the upper should be stable.

    Why do we spend our holidays in a sleeping bag?

    Your backpack is ready, and your hiking boots are tied. Your multi-day hike can begin. Such a hike is considered to be a tour that lasts for more than 24 hours. Hikers will generally sleep under the stars, in a shelter like a hut or in a tent.

    Why don’t we take the gondola?

    A mountain hike involves a tour in highland terrain. This is the easiest way to explore the mountains. In principle, mountain hiking is something for everyone. The tours frequently use forest trails or paths. The higher the altitude of the hikes, the greater the degree of difficulty and the greater the need for experience, preparation, fitness, grip and a head for heights. Mountain hiking is a basic form of mountain climbing. The transition is frequently seamless.

VIGO GTX

LOWA® ELIKA PRO Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The VIGO GTX is equipped with a LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE. Conceived by LOWA to meet the chal­lenges of real-world use, the profile design is made from an optimised rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the back­country and off trail.

The heart of the LOWA® ELIKA PRO sole is the technical profile that offers solid grip. The two-component PU midsole provides optimal cush­ioning on long tours while the distinctive heel edges add pleasure to descents.

LOWA® ELIKA PRO

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The VIGO GTX is equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane. The innovative tech­nology delivers optimal waterproof protection and breath­ability.

  • Permanently waterproof
    The membrane provides reliable waterproof protection. No matter what sort of adventure you may be planning, you can count on GORE-TEX tech­nology to keep your feet pleasantly dry.

  • High breath­ability
    Designed with optimal breath­ability in mind, GORE-TEX shoes provide pleasant comfort even during intense activities. Water cannot penetrate the footwear, and moisture produced inside the shoe escapes through billions of pores in the GORE-TEX membrane.

  • Windproof
    The GORE-TEX membrane dependably fights off the wind and the weather. As a result, you can head off on a tour no matter what the weather is like.

Multifunctional trekking boots have one reason for being: They should be the more comfortable and lighter counterpart to hefty mountaineering boots. This is particularly the case for easy tours in low mountain ranges, those times when the VIGO GTX can really put on a show. The mid-cut models can be precisely laced up thanks to flexible eyelets. With the help of their combination of full grain leather and fabric, they tip the scales at a much lower weight and offer sure grip as a result of their outsole.

MINIMAL SEAMS Fewer stitches for lots of comfort

Stitches and material overlaps are elim­inated in the VIGO GTX thanks to the use of large pieces in forming the upper. This reduces the possibility of pressure points, a feature that enhances comfort.

If your boots had eyes Focus on the experience

Anyone who returns home after a long hiking tour knows that feeling of gratitude. Gratitude for breath­taking days spent in the great outdoors, for spec­tacular moments and for snug boots that safely took the hiker up the mountains and back down again. Many hikers have a very special rela­tionship with their hiking boots. They are something more than just another pair of shoes in the closet. They are more like a hiking partner and a real companion. For a few, they even become something that can only be described as friends. Hikers just can’t do without them. The boots fit like a glove and accompany us everywhere – as they should. Sometimes you wonder: What would the boots say if they could talk? What would they tell us? What have they seen?

LOWA FLEX® Flexible eyelets for more comfort

To add flex­ibility to each eyelet of the VIGO GTX, the lacing systems through which laces are threaded are affixed separately. These sections are made of soft leather trim or supple textile materials that prevent pressure points. Thanks to the flexible arrangement of the eyelets, the laces can be indi­vidually adjusted without producing any excessive pressure on specific areas. But the tongue maintains its optimum posi­tioning.

LOWA x GORE-TEX – Nature Clean-Up

Nature provides us with all sorts of unique oppor­tunities to experience unfor­gettable adventures and enjoy very special moments. More and more people are making a conscious decision to get back in tune with nature. But the decision by more and more people to get back in tune with nature also results in a greater and greater impact on the envir­onment. You hear words like “awareness” and “mind­fulness” a lot in discussions about this trend – but what exactly do people mean when they use them? An example: The practise of taking your trash home with you after a tour now comes second nature to many people. Such steps, no matter how tiny they may seem, can be the key to a mindful and sustainable outdoor lifestyle. But if you look around outdoors, you will certainly see many places that certainly have room for improvement.

TWO ZONE LACING The shoes fit correctly as a result

Thanks to the two-zone lacing system used in the VIGO GTX, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the shoe can be indi­vidually adapted to the anatomy of the foot and laced in different ways for ascents and descents.

An outsole designed by LOWA with an optimised rubber compound to provide good grip.

Midsole

100%
Poly­urethane (PU)

Poly­urethane (PU) is a soft plastic that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties and is usually used in the midsole as a result. Through the use of PU, the soles become light­weight and func­tionally flexible.

Insole

Approx. 50%
Viscoelastic latex foam

Viscoelastic latex foam is made of a remarkable polymer that lends a special form memory to the foam. Once body heat or pressure is applied to the viscoelastic foam, the foam adapts exactly to these particular contours. This feature equally distributes pressure and eases stress on the feet.

Approx. 40%
Polyester

Polyester is synthetic plastic fibre made from crude oil. In chemical terms, it is a polymer that can be processed into many different materials. Thanks to its chemical flex­ibility, polyester is light­weight, dries quickly, does not shrink and has the highest levels of tear and abrasion resistance.

Approx. 10%
Mesh

Mesh is a material that consists of many evenly spaced holes. It is usually made of polyester or nylon and basically a lattice-like material that is created by interwoven threads. Thanks to its special design, the man-made fibre is partic­ularly permeable to air, has special moisture-regu­lating qualities and is easy to care for, breathable and crease-resistant.

Upper material

Approx. 70%
Suede leather

Suede leather comes from the flesh side of the hide. It has a looser fibre structure, a quality that creates a velvety surface and a light pile. Suede leather is partic­ularly durable and open-pored. Depending on the desired look, suede leather can remain untreated or be oiled or waxed.

Approx. 30%
Fabric

Our natural and synthetic fabrics facilitate optimal warming and moisture management with the help of their usage-specific char­ac­ter­istics. Thanks to their structural design, they are smooth and make our products extremely comfortable.

Service & accessories

Available repairs

LOWA boots sold in the MOUN­TAIN­EERING and TREKKING categories are designed in a way during the devel­opment phase that they can be resoled. This process will extend their service life and make a strong contri­bution to sustain­ability. More …

Seam repair

Right at the devel­opment stage, our footwear is designed in such a way that the seams for the different parts of the upper are equal to the demands placed on them. But even with the greatest of care, seams can of course still come apart. Torn or worn seams can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. More …

Heel lining repair

The heel lining is one of the parts of a shoe that are subject to the most stress. Even with quality materials, chafing and signs of wear can of course still occur. The heel lining for leather and GORE-TEX footwear can be repaired without any difficulty at our service workshop. More …

Hook repair

Hooks, loops and eyelets are essential for lacing and putting on all types of footwear. Even with the biggest selection of material, indi­vidual parts can still break, tear or fall apart. Our service workshop can repair all that in house. More …

Cuff repair

Repairing the cuff required a lot of handwork, know-how and utmost care. First, the new edging piece is cut by hand and sewn onto the upper. In a second step, the worn material is removed and replaced with the new piece, ensuring that the necessary glueing and seams match the LOWA standards and nothing pinches on the cuff. More …
