Features: 
  • Suede and Fabric Upper - Rough textured suede upper is robust and durable to extend the life of your boots. It's also open-pored for breathability while remaining water resistant. Fabric blend enables enable optimal heat and moisture management to keep you regulated in varying temperatures.
  • Gore-Tex® Lining - Allows for moisture and sweat to escape while preventing water from entering from the outside through a semi-permeable membrane that also provides optimal breathability.
  • X-Lacing Stud – A patented LOWA technology that holds the tongue in place horizontally and vertically thus reducing tongue movement and preventing pressure and blisters.
  • C4 Tongue – Reduces pressure on the instep and allows for improved flex and comfort through anatomically shaped tongues that cradle the left and right foot specifically.
  • Flex-fit Syncro - An asymmetrical construction of the upper and special flex zone allows for the boot to flex better with the lower leg so the foot can roll forward thus saving you strength when going uphill and providing noticeable comfort.
  • Hard Winter Carbon Shank - A very stiff full length shank designed to be rigid for crampon compatibility. The stiffness allows climbers to ascend with ease by keeping the boot flat whilst keeping the boot weight to a minimum to reduce fatigue.
  • Roller Eyelets – Small rollers in the metal eyelets allow for quick and easy lacing with minimal friction.
  • Primaloft® 400g Insulation - 400 grams of high performance, water resistent and synthetic Primaloft® insulation material that is designed to keep your feet warm in high alpine altitudes.
  • Intricate Fit - This boot is anatomically designed which provides added comfort through a personalized fit for each foot. The construction of the Alpine Expert is close to ground and close to rock for precise terrain feel on uneven ground and small rock edges for advanced climbing. It also features a shock absorbing heel that allows for a cushioned heel area for maximum comfort and reduced stress. An added rubber Slingshot heel creates a strong connection between the forefoot and rearfoot to ensure the heel sits naturally in the boot for a comfortable fit.
  • Insole: Insulate Pro
  • Low Profile Dura PU Midsole – Reduces fatigue and and potential injury when walking long distances by correcting the manner of walking and controlling excessive rolling movement of the feet outwards or inwards (over-pronation or supination).
  • VIBRAM® Alp Trac® Ice Outsole - This alpine oriented performance outsole has been optimized for traction in high alpine terrain to provide better grip in icy and slippery terrain. The high tread depth of the lugs with the tried and tested rubber compound including the "climbing zone" at the tip of the sole offer traction in steep terrain so you can conquer difficult conditions with ease. This outsole is resoleable and crampon compatible.

Alpine expert GTX

The boots are great and was a prompt service, With my previous Lowa boots they’ve always come with some products to look after them but unfortunately not these ones. Would have been a nice touch when spending a $1000.

Alpine Expert - Comparison

While some boots can perform in a wider set of situations than others, there is simply no one boot for all jobs, particularly down here in the South Island of New Zealand.

I have two favourite boots for the majority of hunting that I do, which is dominated by alpine country. The Lowa Ticam 2 - (Similar to the much-loved Tibet's) and the Alpine Expert.

The Alpine Expert as the name would suggest is a versatile all-around alpine boot. It is insulated and balances flexibility with durability. For an alpine boot, it is relatively lightweight, but maintains features like being automatic crampon-compatible with the inclusion of some insulation for added warmth.

I have been using the Lowa Weisshorn for many years on my winter tahr hunting missions. The Weisshorn is ideal for climbing in alpine terrain, performing at its best the steeper it gets. But while it's fantastic in the steep stuff, as you move lower into mid-alpine terrain, the likes of Ticams and Tibets become the preferred option - and this is certainly the case during the summer.

This cross over point is where the alpine expert is in its prime. It really is a boot that can take on the harshest alpine environment yet has enough flex and articulation to cover ground on the riverbeds before you begin climbing high into the nasty stuff.

These days, when I look at my boot shelf before heading off into the hills I am finding myself more and more selecting the Alpine Expert as my boot of choice.
