The Bavarian shoemaker Lorenz Wagner started making sturdy shoes for mountain excursions in 1923. His three basis principles: fit, comfort and quality. These criteria still form Lowa’s company philosophy today. In the meantime Lowa has grown to be the largest and most successful manufacturer of hiking boots in the world. The Trekker is probably the best known hiking boot among mountaineering enthusiasts. Lowa now not only has an extensive collection of shoes for backpacking and trekking, but also for everyday use, for example the All Terrain and the Active Lifestyle ranges. And last but not least, Lowa also has a hip and modernd collection for kids!
