Aksu-Zhabagyly Nature Preserve
Ever since I bought my first pair of Lowa's, I have taken them everywhere I go. I initially bought them for everyday wear as my Renegades were as comfortable as slippers from the get go, but as an experienced traveler I figured my Lowa's would be perfect for traveling as well, and might even welcome the change from the pedestrian (pun intended) pace of Eastern Canada urban life.
I have taken several different pairs of Lowa's everywhere from Egypt to Greece, India, China and most recently to a trip along the Silk Road that left shoe prints in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
My current shoes have been from deserts to the base of a 4000 meter-high glacier and everywhere in between. The picture - above - was taken at 2,573 meters, on the Kazakh side of the Aksu-Zhabagyly nature reserve.
My shoes are now 3 years-old and I still wear them as my go-to shoes as soon as snow has melted. They are showing their age however, and my trip to Peru in Fall 2016 would greatly benefit from a new pair of Lowas!
