Alpine skier Lizz Görgl

From ski gear to Högl boots

Since hanging up her skis, Lizz Görgl has been sharing her experiences in the speeches she gives as well as workshops. She loves to wear Högl shoes for business and leisure.
 
Many of you will probably know me from the ski slopes around the world. At the age of ten, I decided to become a champion alpine skier. I followed my dream. I was determined, I trained hard and won 2 World Championship gold medals, 1 World Championship bronze and 2 Olympic bronzes. I had 7 World Cup victories and 42 podium places. In 15 years of competing in the Alpine Ski World Cup, I saw so much and had to learn to deal with life’s ups and downs.

An expert in ski racing, Lizz Görgl is an all-rounder who has reached the podium in every World Cup discipline. Her greatest success was double World Champion in 2011, in the Super-G and Downhill.
 
Since I retired from competitive skiing in 2017, I like nothing better than to share my experience and knowledge. For more than a year now, I’ve been giving speeches, holding workshops, taking part in panel shows, and have been a personal trainer in fitness, injury prevention and exercise therapy.

My other great passion is singing. The songs I’ve written reveal a great deal about me and my inner thoughts.

Since the end of her sporting career Lizz Görgl has had time to devote to her second great passion: singing.
 
I first heard about the Högl brand around two years ago. In search of the comfortable high heels I need for public events such as sports galas and singing events, I went to the Högl store in Mariahilfer Straße. I was given superb advice and, finally, I found my perfect shoes: high, but still easy to walk in and feel comfortable. This is important if you’re more used to wearing ski boots and sports shoes. The Högl brand manages to combine both elegance and comfort in their shoes. In addition to their beautiful workmanship I’m totally won over with how superbly comfortable Högl shoes are.
 
Now winter is here, and I’ve been on the lookout again for trendy shoes that will keep my feet really warm. For me, it’s important that my shoes look both sporty and elegant, because that’s who I am. In this photo, I am wearing my KITZ ankle boots from the Högl Kitzbühel Edition.

Winter is Lizz Görgl’s favourite season. Since she stopped wearing ski boots every day, it’s really important to her to wear sporty, elegant and, above all, comfortable shoes such as Högl’s KITZ winter ankle boots.
 
Now I’ve tried them, I’ve fallen in love with these shoes! As well as looking feminine and sporty, these shoes stand out with their great workmanship. They are also extremely light and fit beautifully. There’s a strong chance that these KITZ winter boots will become my favourite 2018/2019 winter season boots - or are they already?!
 
I wish you all a wonderful, cosy winter - and warm feet!
 
Yours, Lizz Görgl
