Backpacker Magazine Best Gear: LOWA Explorer GTX


Backpacker Magazine: The Best Gear From Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2019

For years, LOWA has been known for high-quality, durable boots (we gave the Renegade GTX Mid an Editors' Choice Hall of Fame award). Now, the company is introducing lighter, faster, updated versions of their most reliable products.

The Explorer GTX has tried-and-true features like a Vibram Megagrip outsole and a mid-cut cuff, but also boasts modern touches such as a softer, lightweight midsole package made with DynaPU and a thinner toecap to reduce weight. It will also be available in a non-Gore-Tex version.


* The Explorer GTX will be part of LOWA's spring 2020 line up. Check back soon to see all colors + mid and low cut versions.
