Thanks to its stable upper made of a durable combination of suede leather and fabric, the ZEPHYR GTX MID TF provides exceptional support and grip on a large range of terrains. Thanks to its GORE-TEX membrane, the boot can also take on missions in very wet areas. The lightweight design with the distinctive STABILITY FRAME defines the look of the boot and highlights the long-term wearing comfort provided by this proven task force classic.
The ZEPHYR GTX MID TF 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 LOWA® CROSS equipped with a special profile design provides solid grip on a range of different surfaces. The self-cleaning sole profile is designed for both paved and unpaved terrain.
To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of the ZEPHYR GTX MID TF is bonded to the upper in a technically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.
This process uses a plastic called polyurethane. It is a very lightweight foam padding.
The plastic called polyurethane is a foam padding that has very good cushioning properties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.
A wide range of design options
Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multifaceted properties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.
With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the ZEPHYR GTX MID TF provides the very best comfort. This three-dimensional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and support it when the shoe wearer ventures across uneven surfaces. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a STABILITY FRAME.
Good guidance for the foot
The foot is optimally nestled into the shoe thanks to the frame’s three-dimensional design.
The special midsole design ensures snug footing in the shoe. The foot is pleasantly cradled by the three-dimensional frame.
The LOWA-MONOWRAP® is made of a plastic called polyurethane. It is a very lightweight material.
The ZEPHYR GTX MID TF 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.
