LOWA Sole Technology

We believe in polyurethane (PU). It's a terrific shock absorber and longer lasting than the more common EVA midsole. Plus, PU involves a much cleaner, environmental manufacturing process than EVA.

Combine a LOWA PU midsole with one of LOWA's patented sole units, or a VIBRAM® acclaimed sole unit and you get a double dose of durability, comfort and superb performance.
