Anyone heading to one of the world’s true hot spots will be well served at all times by the optimal partner ELITE EVO N. Anyone who is subjected to the elements throughout the year should accept nothing less than the elite. The ELITE EVO N and ELITE EVO N 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. Made of tough nubuck leather and equipped with a two-zone lacing system, the antistatic ELITE EVO N and ELITE EVO N Ws are a joy to wear throughout their long service lives.
The non-GORE model of the ELITE EVO N GTX really shines when it is put to the test in extremely warm and dry regions. The non-membrane textile lining delivers optimal breathability and comfort even when the mercury climbs to unbelievable heights. Like the ELITE EVO N GTX, the ELITE EVO N also comes in a model made on a special women’s last, the ELITE EVO N Ws.

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.
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.
Perfect in use.
Desert warfare is a military assignment carried out in very arid regions where the temperature fluctuates sharply. The objective of desert missions is exploration, reconnaissance, security or combat in very arid regions. The terrain is frequently very dry and dusty, while the temperature of the ground will rise and fall sharply. These are qualities requiring heat-dissipating materials and good breathability to regulate the temperature of the footwear. The boots must have soles that offer good grip in dust and sand as well as a stable upper to prevent wearers from turning their ankles on terrain covered by deep sand.
Heat-dissipating and very breathable
The material’s heat-dissipating and very breathable qualities provide comfort even under such demanding conditions.
Good grip in sand and dust
The good grip in sand and dust provides reliable momentum on challenging terrain.
The stable upper offers good support and protection from turned ankles in deep sand.
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.
For the necessary grip during the workday.
The ELITE EVO N has anti-slip qualities. The slip protection provides the outsole the necessary grip for firm footing during the workday.
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, 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.
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.
An outsole designed by LOWA with an optimised rubber compound to provide good grip.
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.
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.
