    Why don’t we stay at home?

    Snow-covered trees and a white winter landscape – these are more than good reasons to head outdoors. A winter hike is a one-day tour done in icy or snowy conditions on easy trails. The tour can lead over either moun­tainous or flat terrain. Winter hikers generally use trails that have been cleared. The snow on them will be no deeper than ankle-high, so hikers don’t need snowshoes or mini-crampons to complete their tours.

    „Winter hikes are something very special. You rarely run into anyone, and the natural sights you see are simply amazing. When I think about the footwear I need, comfort is naturally a priority. But the height of the upper and the lining material are also very important. When I set off on a hike through the snow, I’ll need a higher upper with an insulating lining. But if I’ll just be hiking through the woods, all I need is a normal MID-CUT boot with a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane.“

    • Insulation
      LOWA winter shoes are outfitted with insulation made of GORE-TEX warm lining or PrimaLoft®.

    • 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.

LOWA® WINTER TRAC® Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The OTTAWA GTX Ws 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 LOWA® WINTER TRAC® is a comfortable performance sole. The sole offers optimal comfort delivered by the special outsole design with its serrated stud arrangement.

GORE-TEX Guaranteed weather protection

Guaranteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The OTTAWA GTX Ws 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.

„No matter whether snow is falling, rain is plunging from the sky or the sun is shining – children wearing GORE-TEX footwear can romp around to their heart’s content during any type of weather.“

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of the OTTAWA GTX Ws is bonded to the upper in a tech­nically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.

  • 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.

SUPPORT FRAME Comfortably framed

With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the OTTAWA GTX Ws provides the very best comfort. This three-dimensional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and support it when the shoe wearer ventures across uneven surfaces. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.

  • Good guidance for the foot
    The foot is optimally nestled into the shoe thanks to the frame’s three-dimensional design.

  • Increased comfort
    The special midsole design ensures snug footing in the shoe. The foot is plea­santly cradled by the three-dimensional frame.

  • Ligh­tweight
    The LOWA-MONOWRAP® is made of a plastic called poly­u­rethane. It is a very ligh­tweight material.

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 OTTAWA GTX Ws, 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.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for OTTAWA GTX Ws have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.

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. 10%
Perforated poly­e­thylene

The structure of our perforated poly­e­thylene promotes increased air circulation.

Approx. 5%
Aluminium foil

Aluminium foil is the name used to describe a thin foil that is produced in a rolling process using the raw material of aluminium. Air-tight aluminium foil is primarily used in insoles as a layer of insulation that fights off cold from below and retains heat in the shoe.

Approx. 50%
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.

Approx. 35%
Non-woven fabric

Non-woven fabric is a collection of fibre of limited length, filaments or cut yarns. Used as a component/covering of feet beds, the layer of non-woven fabric absorbs the heat generated by the foot, creating a pleasant feeling of comfort even in cold weather.

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%
