Lowa Renegade GTX Mid Prune/Mauve W
The year of 1997: It was a time when the blockbuster film “Titanic” was showing in cinemas, Tony Blair was celebrating his election victory in the United Kingdom and the German football team Schalke 04 was revelling in its UEFA Cup championship. It was also a time of transformation at LOWA. Werner Riethmann and his development team were busy thinking about a new way to produce hiking boots and make them lighter in the process. The foundation for a new way to produce hiking boots was laid by the leisure-time and running area. For the first time in the company’s history, LOWA produced a shoe that was directly injected and not cemented – the RENEGADE was born.
Sole VIBRAM® EVO
Proven Vibram® rubber sole from a high-quality provider from Italy.
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.
Approx. 45% Memolatex
Memo latex is composed of very soft latex foam. In addition to being lightweight, memo latex supports the natural rolling motion of the foot. It is primarily used in shoe insoles as a result. Memo latex also individually enwraps the foot and is particularly comfortable as a result.
Approx. 10% Mesh
Mesh is a material that consists of many evenly spaced holes. It is usually made of polyester or nylon and basically a lattice-like material that is created by interwoven threads. Thanks to its special design, the man-made fibre is particularly permeable to air, has special moisture-regulating qualities and is easy to care for, breathable and crease-resistant.
Approx. 45% Felt
Felt is a textile fabric that is made of disordered fibrous material that is difficult to separate. The textile fabric is characterised by its high elasticity and its insulating qualities. As a result, it is used in particular as a component in insoles and as an insulating divider.
100% Nubuck leather
Nubuck leather is a full-grain leather that is slightly sanded, a process that lends a velvety look to the leather. Nubuck leather is especially durable, robust and open-pored. Depending on the desired look, nubuck leather can remain untreated or be oiled or waxed.
Footwear equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane is reliably waterproof, windproof and breathable.
The forefoot and upper area can be laced in varying degrees of tightness.
The double-layer midsole is directly injected onto the footwear. The layers include carefully coordinated degrees of rigidity to create the best-possible comfort.
A special frame design known as LOWA MONOWRAP® provides stability.
The shoe is moderately stiff.
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.
