“Many people wear their shoes down on the heel. Heel replacement for leisure and light hiking footwear can significantly extend their service life – and at a fair price.”
— Arthur | LOWA Manager Service Department
Heel replacement O sole mio
Heel replacement is possible for footwear produced using the so-called “Strobel” technique, in other words, footwear from the ALL TERRAIN CLASSIC and ALL TERRAIN SPORT lines. “Strobel” is a shoemaking technique in which the non-woven insole is sewn on to the upper using the Strobel stitch, thus forming a solid unit. The outsole is then sprayed on. The heel of this sprayed on sole can be sanded down and a new standard outdoor heel glued on in its place. A complete sole replacement is not possible with this footwear design, since a sprayed-on sole cannot be removed without damaging the upper.
Which parts of my shoe can be repaired?
You will find the name of your shoe on the label attached to the inner face of the shoe’s tongue.
How it works
The first point of contact for all repairs within the warranty is your LOWA specialist retailer. Thanks to their expertise, your retailer can best judge what steps to take, or if your boots should be sent for repair or to make a complaint. If it is a complaint within the warranty, then take the boots to the retailer or send them in if they were purchased online or elsewhere (all retailers can be found here). Always attach a copy of the receipt to the boots and a short letter describing the problem. The retailer will then look after the rest of the complaint process.
