LOWA Kody Junior: Thumbs Up!

November 13, 2019

A sure way to get kids to hate hiking is to put them in shoes with crappy traction and support such that they end up slipping out on trail inclines or not being able to manage rocks and roots on the trail.

So, invest in not just your kids’ feet but also your future as an outdoor loving family with these Virbam sole and Gore-Tex waterproofed boots from Lowa.

Our little tester has taken them on a few fall and winter (snowy) hikes and gives them a thumbs up.

LOWA Innox Pro: A Delight To Hike In

October 24, 2019

We stepped into the Innox Pro GTX Mid and were impressed. Much lighter, with a streamlined design, comfortable out of the box, and still sporting excellent waterproofness, the Innox Pros were a delight to hike in.

They feature a synthetic mesh upper, that provided excellent breathability for keeping our feet dry and comfortable, and a DynaPU midsole and Monowrap frame that granted exceptional support and stability while allowing us to stay agile over a variety of terrain. The NXT outsole was nice and grippy on everything from scree to wet duff and even snowy surfaces.

The nimble and lightweight LOWA Aerano GTX day hikers can’t be any more ideal for fall hiking, thanks to their Gore-Tex waterproof laminate and side ventilation outlets that allow foot sweat and other moisture to escape from the bottom.

Fit and stability is outstanding and traction is very good. Although the lugs aren’t as aggressive as full-on hiking boot, they work well at shedding mud and debris.

And wow, the comfort. These are boots that you won’t race to kick off at the end of the day or plunge your feet into a cold lake.
