LOCARNO GTX LO

Hiking boots 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 model of the LOCARNO GTX® LO with a casual look is taking its own path quite consciously, and skilfully conquers the balancing act between lifestyle and outdoor footwear.

“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.”

“Weighing in at only 700 grams, the LOWA Locarno GTX pack a lot of technical details into their light frame. Nubuck leather and fabric surround the top of your foot while your sole rests on an ATC Climate Control Footbed. The LOWA Locarno GTX footbed is incredibly comfortable and very supportive in the arch. I am not one with high arches, so finding a shoes that matches my anatomy is always a challenge.”
