  • Tongue stud and X-lacing allows for better pressure distribution and a centred tongue
  • Ball Bearing lace system for easy lace up and tension. Enhanced lacing system for ease of use
  • A series of perforations in the boot's cuff allows air to enter the boot while walking movement "pumps" heat and moisture back out through the holes along with the thermal gradient an so moves moisture through the GORE-TEX® lining and away from your foot
  • Balanced insole, with a breathable top layer, and slow reacting foam, delivers instant customisation to your foot. This proprietary insole transports moisture away from the foot, eliminates pressure points, minimises friction between foot and insole and reduces fatigue
  • Medium Flex stabiliser (5mm nylon heel/3mm forefoot), full length and width, provides support underfoot

Technology

The tongue is one of the most underrated components of a boot. A good one will stay in place, absorb the pressure well and you won't even think about it. A bad one will haunt you all trip. LOWA C4 tongues are made up of 15 parts per tongue. Anatomically-contoured for a natural flex that cradles the foot in comfort and promotes a faster break-in time. The benefit is that the C4 Tongue provides more comfort over the instep through engineered padding and instep flex notch.

X-Lacing completely centres the tongue, secures it in place symmetrically, so the tongue remains firmly located with more instep comfort.

Care

Cleaning your boots:

  1. PREPARATION: Remove the insole to allow it to air and dry. Remove the laces to allow you to reach tucked away corners such as the tongue with the care products used.
  2. REMOVE THE DIRT FROM YOUR BOOTS: Brush dirt off thoroughly under lukewarm running water. For heavily soiled boots, use specialist footwear cleaning products or soap suds.
  3. INCREASE THE LEATHERS WATER their LOWA WATER STOP which is sprayed on (not stocked by Bivouac Outdoor). Helps water bead off. Regular proofing prevents water and dirt absorption. This is all the more important since leather that is completely soaked has no breathing properties, which has a negative effect on the internal microclimate of the footwear. Please note that proofing will only be fully effective 24 hours after application.
  4. MAINTAIN THE LEATHERS NATURAL SOFTNESS: Once your boots have been water-proofed they should also regularly have a water-based cream rubbed or polished into them (with a brush), especially when they have had a soaking. LOWA recommends their ACTIVE CREME which can be applied with a sponge or cloth (not stocked by Bivouac Outdoor). TIP
