Roller-coaster springtime temperatures, blazing summer heat, chilly and wet autumn days are felt most of all when you experience them outdoors. People who don’t have to think twice about their boots when they face such uninviting conditions are the fortunate ones. With the ELITE EVO N GTX and ELITE EVO N GTX Ws on your feet, you are perfectly equipped for your next mission.
Anyone who is subjected to the elements throughout the year should accept nothing less than the elite. The ELITE EVO N GTX and ELITE EVO N GTX Ws combine perfect fit with exceptional functionality. The lightweight shoe draws on its optimised rubber mix and the profile of the outsole to provide maximum slip protection on the widest range of terrains. Its completely replaceable sole design provides both heat and cold insulation. Oil, petrol or contact heat can do no harm to the LOWA® natural sole of the certified model.
To maintain a pleasant climate inside the footwear, the large, intelligently integrated woven fabric windows keep air circulating throughout the shoe even during the scorching days of summer. The shaft construction remains stable and provides optimal support to the ankle. The moisture-diverting GORE-TEX membrane stitched into the footwear also provides continuous and reliable protection from outside dampness. Made of tough nubuck leather and equipped with a two-zone lacing system, the antistatic ELITE EVO N GTX and ELITE EVO N GTX Ws are a joy to wear throughout their long service lives.
Light, sporty and dynamic – the LOWA ELITE EVO N GTX Ws is the perfect choice for the widest range of uses throughout the year.

Mountain warfare is an assignment that can be conducted in very adverse weather conditions and on very difficult terrain. The objective of a mountain mission is exploration, reconnaissance, security or combat on mountainous terrain. A stable upper is required to provide the support and stability required by the mission. A wrap-around rubber rand prevents premature wear and tear of the material. Waterproof features prevent the constant penetration of moisture and, thus, cold bridges in the boot as well.
The stable upper provides the support required for demanding terrain situations.
The wrap-around rubber rand prevents premature wear and tear during missions conducted on demanding terrain.
Waterproof and breathable
The waterproof and breathable qualities of the lining create a continuously balanced foot climate.
Perfect in use.
Combat deployment is a military assignment conducted in an active war zone. The combat mission is designed to fend off threats as well as to restore and maintain public safety. The terrain can vary greatly, depending on the area of operation. It may range from urban areas to remote locations with rough terrain. The ideal footwear for combat missions has a stable upper that supports the ankle and provides a high level of comfort even during extended engagements. A robust fabric provides the required durability, even under adverse conditions.
The stable upper provides the support required for demanding situations.
The very robust boot is designed to handle long, demanding combat missions.
The boot is also ideal for extended periods of wear thanks to its high level of comfort.
Turns every landing into a pleasure.
Parachuting involves a range of different jumps from aeroplanes to introduce troops to areas of operation. Such missions can involve jumps made at low altitudes with round parachutes that open automatically or military freefalls with parafoils and occasionally heavy rucksacks. Parachuting places some special demands on footwear worn during such missions. Important features include closed hooks to prevent the hooks from becoming caught in suspension lines, good heel cushioning and a stable upper to prevent injuries during landing.
The stable upper design provides stability during landings.
The closed hooks prevent them from becoming accidentally caught in parts of the parachute.
Good heel cushioning
Good heel cushioning reduces stress during landings.
The right comrade in every situation.
Patrols cover a limited area. They are used to conduct exploration, reconnaissance or security missions. The location and length of such missions vary tremendously, a fact that places tremendous demands on mission equipment, particularly the footwear. Challenging terrain (like the Hindu Kush mountain range in Afghanistan), frequent kneeling as well as good mobility and responsiveness require tough, but lightweight boots that offer moderate sole rigidity and provide solid support to the ligaments and tendons.
The stable upper provides the support required during abrupt movements.
Moderate sole rigidity
The boot’s moderate sole rigidity supports the foot without hindering movement.
The snug boot remains comfortable even when it is worn for an extended amount of time.
Outsole with an optimal rubber compound
The ELITE EVO N GTX 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 optimised rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the backcountry and off trail.
The trekking-boot-like profile design of the LOWA® NATURAL impresses users with its exceptional support and very good grip on the widest range of surfaces. Its heat- and cold-insulating sole design is antistatic and resistant to oil, petrol and contact heat. A distinct heel and front profile facilitates precise mountain climbs and descents.
TWO ZONE LACING
The shoes fit correctly as a result
Thanks to the two-zone lacing system used in the ELITE EVO N GTX Ws, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the shoe can be individually adapted to the anatomy of the foot and laced in different ways for ascents and descents.
Tradition and innovation since 1923
Corporate responsibility (CR) stands for far-sighted management in a company’s core business and has a high priority in the business’s overall strategy. CR is a key aspect of sustainable growth in the following areas of business activity: the market, jobs, the common good, the environment and supply chains. Social, environmental and commercial issues are given equal weight, and stakeholders are integrated into the strategic focus of the company’s CR activities.
To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for ELITE EVO N GTX Ws have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.
Hold without a snag
The ELITE EVO N GTX Ws is equipped with lacing hooks with a closed design. They guide the laces very securely and keep them from getting caught upon contact with objects.
An outsole designed by LOWA with an optimised rubber compound to provide good grip.
The sole meets the highest anti-slip standards. Slip protection depends primarily on the design and rubber compound of the outsole. The shoe provides optimal slip protection on slick, wet and oily surfaces, as well as good grip on terrain.
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.
Viscoelastic latex foam
Viscoelastic latex foam is made of a remarkable polymer that lends a special form memory to the foam. Once body heat or pressure is applied to the viscoelastic foam, the foam adapts exactly to these particular contours. This feature equally distributes pressure and eases stress on the feet.
Polyester is synthetic plastic fibre made from crude oil. In chemical terms, it is a polymer that can be processed into many different materials. Thanks to its chemical flexibility, polyester is lightweight, dries quickly, does not shrink and has the highest levels of tear and abrasion resistance.
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.
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.
The forefoot and upper area can be laced in varying degrees of tightness.
Lasts specially adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet.
The shoe is equipped with lacing hooks with a closed design. The laces are guided securely and cannot slip out of their hooks. Closed lace hooks minimise the risk of the shoe getting caught on objects.
The shoe is moderately stiff.
