VIGO GTX

The ready, willing and able partner for trekking tours. VIGO GTX

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sole

LOWA® ELIKA PRO

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. Více

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.

Lining material

100%
GORE-TEX

Footwear equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane is reliably waterproof, windproof and breathable. Více

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. Více

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

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. 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
