Lowa Boots & Shoes are made to be comfortable & durable in a way that provides maximum comfort while protecting against the elements and whatever climate you are trekking in. Outdoor companies live with and from nature. LOWA has backed reforestation programs in the Bavarian mountain areas for years and supports the wildlife conservation projects of the World Wildlife Fund through its European sales of LOWINGO, a cuddly peregrin falcon toy that is the LOWA Kids brand mascot. In the US, LOWA supports many non-profit organizations that work to make the outdoors more accessible to everyone. A good rule of thumb to reduce your environmental impact: Buy high-quality, long-lasting products, buy fewer of them, and take good care of them.
