Hiking shoes are by definition not necessarily suited for everyday wear. Nevertheless, they are being worn more and more often in the city. What was previously considered stiff and excessive is in today’s urban lifestyle nearly the norm. The func­tional hybrid LOWA Locarno GTX LO Ws with a casual look is consciously heading off in a new direction, one in which it skilfully pulls off the balancing act between lifestyle and outdoor footwear. The trendy shoe shines in every way. The reduced LOWA Monowrap frame that optimally supports the foot and the cush­ioning mid-sole made of LOWA DynaPU create a complete, eye-catching look. “Lifestyle meets outdoor” – this sums up the essence of the func­tional models in the best possible way. With its urban trend­setters, LOWA once again provides a multi­func­tional solution for all sorts of activities for users’ shoe closets – no matter whether the footwear is destined for use in the mountains or downtown.


The Locarno GTX LO Ws is equipped with a LOWA rubber outsole. Conceived by LOWA to meet the chal­lenges of real-world use, the profile design is made from an optimized rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the back­country and off-trail. The self-cleaning LOWA HYBRID TRAC sole is perfect for everyday use when the weather turns windy and nasty. With the help of its profile design and special tip and heel construction, it demon­strates its true strengths during ascents and descents.


  • Designed for a women’s foot and built on a women’s last for extra comfort.
  • Outdoor-oriented tread.
  • Self-cleaning sole concept.
  • Special tread design at the toe and heel for improved traction on uphills and downhills.

Locarno GTX LO WS


“Take a pair of early 2000s Etnies or Vans, beef it up with more tread and support and you’d arrive at the Locarno GTX Lo. Of the hiking shoes on this list, the Locarno is by far the most casual in appearance, but it’s still reliably apt for trail use. It’s an interesting choice for Lowa, which has a long history as a core hiking brand that dates back to 1923.”
