NEW! Handcrafted in Italy.
Absolutely ideal for climbing the great peaks and routes in the South Island and, anywhere else up to 4,500-5,000m in real comfort on the mountain and on the walk in. Lighter weight than traditional boots and with flexibility in the shaft makes them ideally suited to New Zealand conditions and with added warmth through the Gore-Tex Duratherm lining.
LOWA's most technically advanced mixed route alpine boot. FLEXFIT SYNCHRO allows for comfortable ankle flex & articulation on exceptionally steep terrain. Double tongue, with removable and adjustable inner tongue allows for perfect fit across the top of the foot. Foot hold is enhanced with our patented I-Lock lacing. I-Core technology reduces weight, provides rigidity for automatic crampons.

The Lowa Weisshorn. Nothing Better.
 

The best all-around boot I have ever worn is the Lowa Weisshorn. I have been lucky enough to try a bunch of boots over the years, including similar models like SCARPA’s Mont Blanc and LaSportiva’s Nepal Extreme, which are both excellent in their own right(s). The Weisshorn, though, walks better than the Nepal and climbs better than the Mont Blanc. The Weisshorn sets a pretty high bar for alpine footwear.
