Description of LOWA Cevedale Pro GTX Shoe - blue/black
Alpine climbing and via ferrata, plus less intense high-alpine tours up to 4,000 metres, are what this true all-around boot is ready to take on with its ideal combination of stability, weight and upper flexibility. The The Cevedale Pro GTX® combines LOWA's asymmetrical upper construction "FlexFit-Synchro", which allows the boot to move in tandem with the lower leg, and the LOWA Flex-Technology that reduces walking discomfort caused by stiff boot materials in the ankle and instep. The result? Perfect comfort with optimal traction and a superior feeling on the smallest of holds.
The upper is made of a durable 2.4 mm suede leather. Patented, Lowa-exclusive "I-Lock" locking hooks supply absolutely comfortable adjustment of the two-zone lacing system. The waterproof GORE-TEX® lining provides optimal comfort. The midsole "Guida Pro" has a TPU Climbing Zone in the toe area and provides extremely high edging abilty. The proven Vibram® rubber outsole "Dolent" offers the most secure grip and edging. This style is combination crampon-compatible.
X-Lacing holds the tongue correctly both vertically and horizontally, and prevents slippage and thus blisters and pressure points. This lacing system is independent of instep height and distributes pressure from the laces evenly across the tongue, rather than focused on the hooks. Due to the printed instructions, the lacing is very easy.
Heel Truss is a stabilizing connection between outsole and upper at the heel, that protects the heel are and leather upper from damage.
The asymmetrical upper construction of the "FlexFit-Synchro" technology makes the shaft of the shoe move "in sync" with the lower leg, thereby improving comfort perceptibly.
The patented "I-Lock" clamp hooks fix the instep ob the foot and block the lace. The water blocking tongue can be comfortably inserted and the bootleg can be laced. Pushing the lock clip upwards easily releases the clamping to loosen the instep lacing.
The GORE-TEX® lining provides a great foot climate. It is completely waterproof and completely breathable at the same time, and lets moisture vapor easily escape.
The "Guida Pro" midsole offers an ideal combination of function and comfort. The crampon compatible TPU heel insert and the TPU-front stabilization in climbing zones are connected with a lightweight, shock-absorbing PUR-foam midsole. The whole construction is completed by the Vibram® "Dolent" rubber outsole with great traction.
The Vibram® "Dolent" outsole has an alpine tread design and offers high edging stability for optimally precise footing, combined with a self-cleaning tread profile.
