Manufacturer's Description

We collaborated with renowned mountaineer Ralf Dujmovits to develop the Expedition 8000 Evo RD, our most protective and insulated mountaineering boot that's designed for extreme, high altitude expeditions. It's loaded with technical features to keep your feet protected, warm, dry and comfortable on even the most punishing climbs, and has been worn on every 8,000 meter peak in the world. The insulated double boot with reflective-coated technologies retains valuable body heat while the high outside TI ZIP closure on the Schoeller fabric gaiter provides essential waterproof protection and durability. Automatic crampon compatible.

Lowa designed the 8000 GTX Boot to help pro mountaineers survive in some of Earth's most inhospitable environments. Focusing on warmth, stability, and durability, Lowa engineers developed a boot that can handle conditions that would destroy other mountaineering boots and leave you stranded in the death zone.The Expedition 8000s are equipped with the technology to keep your feet dry, warm, and protected even during some of the most punishing trips. These boots comply with automatic crampons, so you can get on the ice and stay there. The PrimaLoft insulation and Duratherm lining keep your toes toasty in the coldest conditions. These boots are built with a Cordura outer, so they are ready for any rocks, axes, and ice you throw at them, too.
