  • LOWA Kids Kampagne 2019

    Ready, set, play!

    No matter whether the site is a playground, playing area or athletic ground – children just want to have fun when they play indoors or outdoors in nature in any type of weather. They can play by them­selves or meet friends and enjoy some exciting adventures together.

    „When I romp around with the children of my best friend on the playground, I never think twice about wet feet or unpleasant stains while I’m wearing LOWA shoes – that’s the way it is for the children and me, too.“

    Meike | LOWA Testing manager

    • Multifuncti­o­nality
      Off to school and the next playful adventure. No matter whether the site is a playground, woods, fields or an athletic ground – multifuncti­o­nality is the key here, the factor that ensures shoes are optimally equipped for every terrain and usage area.

    • Robust
      Bright sunshine or pouring rain – the weather doesn’t matter at all to people who like to head outdoors. That’s why LOWA boots are made of robust materials that provide the best comfort even in wind and weather.

    It’s off to school!

    Lunch is wrapped, rucksacks are packed, and now it’s off to school. At school, children and adolescents are taught knowledge and infor­mation that will prepare them for life after school. Their time at school is spent doing the widest range of activities that are performed indoors and outdoors in nature.

    „Every day is an adventure for my kids. These adventures naturally occur on the way to school and outside during recess. And, of course, on the playground after school. These activities really put our shoes to the test many times a day – and the shoes pass them with flying colours. Because the shoes are made in our European factories, I know that everything else will also be perfect. And this is exactly what I want to teach my children.“

    Matthias | LOWA CSO

    • Comfortable
      No matter what activity may be planned and how long the walk to school may be, pupils’ shoes should defi­nitely be comfortable. To ensure that every school day becomes a complete success, LOWA places special emphasis on fit.

    • Multifuncti­o­nality
      Into the shoes and out into nature – multifuncti­o­nality is the key here, the feature that ensures school children are optimally equipped for every terrain they will encounter on their way to school and for their activities at school.

    • Robust
      Bright sunshine or pouring rain – the weather doesn’t matter at all to people who like to head outdoors. That’s why LOWA boots are made of robust materials that provide the best comfort even in wind and weather.

    Discovering the world together!

    Kindergarten is the place where children generally between the ages of 3 and 6 spend the day during the school week and are playfully cared for and encouraged. Their time in kindergarten is spent doing the widest range of activities that are performed indoors and outdoors in nature.

    2016_Athlete testing_CoburgerHütte

    „Children really put their shoes to the test when they play, romp around the playground or inqui­si­tively explore the world. This is true for kindergarten, too. This is why I want my children to wear shoes that are snug and robust – and that they love, too.“

    Michael | LOWA Head of Marketing

LOWA DynaPU® Noti­ceable cushioning puts a spring in your step

The midsole is the leading contributor to the footwear’s rolling properties and cushioning. In the APPROACH GTX MID JUNIOR, this midsole is made of a specially developed plastic: LOWA DynaPU®. The special feature: It retains its restoring force even when it’s pressed together thousands of times. As a result, the finished boots will maintain their excep­tional cushioning properties even after you have walked many kilo­metres in them.

  • Good comfort
    The special material deve­lopment is charac­terised by good cushioning properties. As a result, walking comfort and rolling properties have been noti­ceably increased – even during long hikes.

  • Good rebound effect
    The plastic called poly­u­rethane is a foam padding that has very good cushioning properties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • Ligh­tweight
    The plastic called poly­u­rethane is a very ligh­tweight foam padding. The result is a sole that offers the best form of comfort.

Corporate Respon­si­bility Tradition and innovation since 1923

Corporate respon­si­bility (CR) stands for far-sighted management in a company’s core business and has a high priority in the busi­ness’s overall strategy. CR is a key aspect of susta­inable growth in the following areas of business activity: the market, jobs, the common good, the envi­ronment and supply chains. Social, envi­ron­mental and commercial issues are given equal weight, and stake­holders are integrated into the strategic focus of the company’s CR activities.

SINGLE INJECTION The bond between the sole and upper

The APPROACH GTX MID JUNIOR is footwear onto which the outsole has been directly injected. This manufacturing technique creates an excep­ti­onally precise and very strong bond between the sole and upper.

  • Ligh­tweight
    This process uses a plastic called poly­u­rethane. It is a very ligh­tweight foam padding.

  • Cushioning
    The plastic called poly­u­rethane is a foam padding that has very good cushioning properties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • A wide range of design options
    Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multifaceted properties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.

KIDS LAST Adapted to the anatomy of chil­dren’s feet

The model APPROACH GTX MID JUNIOR is produced with a special chil­dren’s last. These lasts are not simply mini-versions of the lasts used for adults’ feet. They have been specially modified to reflect the anatomy of chil­dren’s feet and reduced in size. In addition, the height and width of the heel, toe and instep areas have been modified.

„Children are not small adults. Their bodies are growing, and their movement patterns are much more natural. For this reason, it makes sense to develop shoes that enable them to get a kick out of physical activity. We cannot simply turn a shoe designed for adults into a shoe used by children. The needs and requi­rements are totally different.“

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. 20%
Felt

Felt is a textile fabric that is made of disordered fibrous material that is difficult to separate. The textile fabric is charac­terised by its high elas­ticity and its insulating qualities. As a result, it is used in particular as a component in insoles and as an insulating divider.

Approx. 70%
Poly­e­thylene

Poly­e­thylene is a semi-crys­talline and non-polar ther­moplastic resin that is, by far, the most widely used plastic in the world. Poly­e­thylene is used in part as a component of man-made fibre/blended fabrics. It is used primarily to create comfort and insulate the foot from below.

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.

Upper material

Approx. 80%
Synthetic

Our synthetic fabrics made of such plastics as nylon, polyester, poly­pro­pylene and elastane (Lycra) are primarily used as design elements and protection for the upper due to their abrasion resistance and tear strength.

Service & acces­sories

Available repairs

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. Více

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. Více

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. Více

Repla­cement parts

Whether it’s new insoles, a speed-lace system, new laces or other repla­cement parts. Let us know what you need for your favourite LOWA footwear and we’ll send it to you. Více
