We have been here for you for a long time already and we love it more and more.:-) LOAP is a pioneer of sportswear and outdoor equipment in this country since 1993.
LOAP is a Czech brand with its own team of designers and technologists.
Although the abbreviation LOAP was formed from two English words "Logical" and "Application", it is read with the Czech pronunciation.
And logical application is the core of the matter - we design our products, so that they are functional, practical, reasonably priced and, most importantly, so that they suit you.
Since 2007, we have sold more than 2.6 million pairs of shoes, and more than 1.3 million backpacks over the past 10 years.
Stores in the Czech Republic and Slovakia
Thanks to the Internet you can buy LOAP virtually anywhere in the world. We do not have our own stores, BUT - do not despair! We have a wide network of LOAP partner stores in the Czech and Slovak Republic. The chance of finding a new LOAP heart in one of the specialized sports shops in your area is therefore very high.
