Lorenz Wagner, the son of the shoemaker, Johann Wagner, established the LOWA Company in 1923. Though the LOWA story began with the production of traditional Bavarian Haferl shoes, Lorenzo quickly came to see that things had to change. The high quality of the handiwork involved in the welt-stitched shoes, coupled with a manufacturing process that stemmed from the mountains, made it necessary for Lorenz Wagner to expand his operations in the late 1920s. The first factory buildings were built for this purpose in 1930 and 1931, and the foundation for further success was laid with Alpine boots and lace-up Ski boots for mountain infantry.

If your job involves carrying out potentially dangerous tasks, chances are you're obliged to wear safety boots and other protective apparel to help prevent both serious and minor injuries. This wasn't always the case, however, as it wasn’t until the early 20th century that laws on compensation were enacted and safety boots became more common in the workplace. Before this, it was seen as cheaper to replace a member of staff if they were injured, rather than to bring in the relevant and required safety measures.
