    It’s off to school!

    Lunch is wrapped, rucksacks are packed, and now it’s off to school. At school, children and adolescents are taught knowledge and information that will prepare them for life after school. Their time at school is spent doing the widest range of activities that are performed indoors and outdoors in nature.

    “Every day is an adventure for my kids. These adventures naturally occur on the way to school and outside during recess. And, of course, on the play­ground after school. These activities really put our shoes to the test many times a day – and the shoes pass them with flying colours. Because the shoes are made in our European factories, I know that everything else will also be perfect. And this is exactly what I want to teach my children.”

    Matthias | LOWA CSO

    • Comfortable
      No matter what activity may be planned and how long the walk to school may be, pupils’ shoes should definitely be comfortable. To ensure that every school day becomes a complete success, LOWA places special emphasis on fit.

    • Multi­func­tionality
      Into the shoes and out into nature – multi­func­tionality is the key here, the feature that ensures school children are optimally equipped for every terrain they will encounter on their way to school and for their activities at school.

    • Robust
      Bright sunshine or pouring rain – the weather doesn’t matter at all to people who like to head outdoors. That’s why LOWA boots are made of robust materials that provide the best comfort even in wind and weather.

    Ready, set, play!

    No matter whether the site is a play­ground, playing area or athletic ground – children just want to have fun when they play indoors or outdoors in nature in any type of weather. They can play by them­selves or meet friends and enjoy some exciting adventures together.

    “When I romp around with the children of my best friend on the play­ground, I never think twice about wet feet or unpleasant stains while I’m wearing LOWA shoes – that’s the way it is for the children and me, too.”

    Discovering the world together!

    Kinder­garten is the place where children generally between the ages of 3 and 6 spend the day during the school week and are playfully cared for and encouraged. Their time in kinder­garten is spent doing the widest range of activities that are performed indoors and outdoors in nature.

    “Children really put their shoes to the test when they play, romp around the play­ground or inquis­itively explore the world. This is true for kinder­garten, too. This is why I want my children to wear shoes that are snug and robust – and that they love, too.”

LEA GTX

LOWA® SNEAKER KIDS WINTER Comfort every step of the way

Made of poly­urethane (PU), the outsole of the LEA GTX impresses users with a profile design that has been optimised with real-world chal­lenges in mind. The strong combination of good cush­ioning behaviour and lightness turns the sole into an ideal footwear feature.

The simple sole model LOWA® SNEAKER KIDS WINTER obtains its light weight with the help of its diamond-shaped stud design in combination with its PU mixture. The result: romping around in the snow becomes lots more fun.

GORE-TEX Guar­anteed weather protection

Guar­anteed weather protection, even in pouring rain and heavy snow: The LEA 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.

One thing is certain: If it glitters, most kids will love it. And the LEA GTX winter shoe does just that. With an upper made from glitter material, the shoe is a real eye-catcher. The GORE-TEX Panda lining ensures cosily warm feet. Elastic bootlaces and a fastening system make the footwear a snap to put on and take off.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the LEA GTX 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.

KIDS LAST Adapted to the anatomy of chil­dren’s feet

The model LEA GTX is produced with a special chil­dren’s last. These lasts are not simply mini-versions of the lasts used for adults’ feet. They have been specially modified to reflect the anatomy of chil­dren’s feet and reduced in size. In addition, the height and width of the heel, toe and instep areas have been modified.

“Children are not small adults. Their bodies are growing, and their movement patterns are much more natural. For this reason, it makes sense to develop shoes that enable them to get a kick out of physical activity. We cannot simply turn a shoe designed for adults into a shoe used by children. The needs and requirements are totally different.”

Sole

LOWA® SNEAKER KIDS WINTER

The simple sole model LOWA® SNEAKER KIDS WINTER obtains its light weight with the help of its diamond-shaped stud design in combination with its PU mixture. The result: romping around in the snow becomes lots more fun. More …

The LOWA PU outsoles set them­selves apart with their reduced weight and very comfortable cush­ioning.

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. 65%
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. 60%
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. 40%
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.

Construction methods

Injected Construction

To create optimal cush­ioning and the very best comfort, the soles of LOWA multi­func­tional shoes are directly injected. The complex injection process attaches the slip-lasted upper directly to the sole. This method creates shoes that offer optimal cush­ioning and are partic­ularly light­weight.
