Features

  • Nubuck leather upper 2.4-2.6mm
  • High wall rubber rand provides added protection and durability
  • Waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX® lining fully lasted to reduce bunching thus providing a smooth fit, eliminating hotspots
  • FlexFit Synchro allows for more natural and easy forward ankle flex and good heel fit with improved stability
  • C4 tongue has a patented anatomical construction to cradle the foot in comfort and especially over the instep
  • Tongue stud and X-lacing allows for better pressure distribution and a centred tongue
  • I-Lock locking cam lacing system for ease of lacing differentially

  • 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
  • Climate control system: a series of perforations or holes in the boot's cuff allows air to enter the boot whilst walking movement "pumps" heat and moisture back out through the holes along with the thermal gradient which moves moisture through the GORE-TEX® lining and away from your foot
  • Stiff Flex 5mm nylon stabiliser, full length and width with a PU layer for total support underfoot
  • PU with SPS Dynamic TPU elements midsole is designed to help control over-pronation and supination, reducing fatigue and potential injury when covering long distances through encouraging correct gait (see image in gallery)

  • Suits strap on crampons
  • 230mm tall

Technology

I-Lock is a patented LOWA design where a simple cam lace loop is placed at the top of the foot. It grabs the lace and holds it tight so your foot can be firmly held and supported while allowing for flexible shaft lacing. Pushing the hook clip upwards easily releases the clamping to loosen the instep lacing.

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… Apply more in the forefoot / flex zone area (it’s like a hinge) & brush away any excess. Do this immediately following step 3. Leather that has not been treated in this way dries out, becomes brittle and cracks, leaving your footwear irreparably damaged. To prevent this happening, apply your leather care product using a cloth and then polish it off with a brush. By carefully warming the leather with a hair dryer, the care product will be absorbed even deeper into the leather. We do not advise the use of oils or greases. Although they leave the leather very soft and almost waterproof, they reduce the stiffness and therefore the stability of the footwear. Furthermore, oils and greases also clog the leather pores, thereby preventing the leather from breathing (rubber boot effect). In the worst case scenario they can even dissolve the adhesives used in the footwear. DO NOT use care products containing: beeswax, animal fats and petroleum oils e.g. Dubbin, Neatsfoot Oil, Mink Oil and Sno-Seal, etc.
  5. GIVE YOUR BOOTS AMPLE TIME TO DRY: Never place boots to dry on a radiator, too near to a fireplace or oven, inside a car or in the trunk of your car. They should also not be left on the back step in direct sunlight; the ambient temperature which develops can be as bad as a heater or open fire and the UV perishes the randing.
