LOWA Strato III LO Shoes

Shoes are probably the single most bulky item when traveling but also the most essential to an enjoyable trip. That means mine must be lightweight, comfortable, have good support, and hold up to lots of walking in different places and over varying surfaces and terrains. The LOWA Strato III shoe has all of these good qualities, and more.

With all of the traveling I do, I need to pack light and just carry the essentials. That means only two pairs of shoes will make the trip, and at least one pair needs to be versatile. The Lowa Strato III Lo shoe has a nice, sleek profile and attractive embossed leather upper with decorative stitching. It goes well with both dressier slacks and a blouse and with jeans and a T-shirt.

The LOWA Strato III shoe is a hybrid between a low-cut hiking shoe and a walking shoe. On the inside, a soft glove leather lining nicely envelops each foot to keep them comfortable. On the outside, a thick, cushiony rubber sole offers good support and a nice, grippy tread. Both features mean that my hikes around town, and along the many park trails I always seek out, are enjoyable; I never have to think about my feet! In addition, the show is water-resistant, so my feet stay dry on wet days.


Sizes: 5.5 – 11 women’s sizes (Lowa makes men’s styles, too)

Weight: 1.40 lbs

Colors: Black

Prices: $190

Bottom Line:. The LOWA Strato III Lo shoe is ideal for travel because it’s, lightweight, hardworking, and attractive.--C.W. (May 2012)
