Features

  • Built on a women's -specific last
  • GORE-TEX® waterproof/breathable membrane provides optimal weather protection
  • Robust and durable Nubuck leather upper that is open-pored for breathability while remaining fully waterproof
  • GORE-TEX® semi-permeable waterproof membrane allows moisture and sweat to escape while preventing water from coming in from the outside
  • LOWA MONOWRAP® external PU frame across the midsole provides lateral stability, reduces weight without compromising flexibility and provides effective cushioning and high-wearing comfort by connecting the upper to the sole to form one unit
  • PU midsoles adds cushioned comfort, rebound well and will last longer (typically 2.5 times more than EVA) and will not deform under heavy loads so you can carry more without compromising weight and flexibility

Care

LOWA's guide to cleaning:

  • Prepare by removing the insole to allow it to air and dry and remove the laces to allow you to reach tucked away corners
  • Remove the dirt from your boots with a brush under lukewarm running water. For heavily soiled boots use specialist footwear cleaning products or soap suds.
  • Increase the leather's water resistance: Cleaned boots are in an "open-pored" state and will soak up water. In order to "close" the leather again, an impregnating spray should first be used when they are still damp. Please note that proofing will only be fully effective 24 hours after application.
  • Maintain the leather's 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. TIP… Apply more in the forefoot / flex zone area (it's like a hinge) and brush away any excess. Do this immediately following waterproofing. 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. LOWA 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.
  • 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.
  • Store your boots in a dry, well-aired place. Never store wet boots in damp rooms or the car as they will get mouldy.
