The right military boots should be supportive, comfortable and durable. This is crucial for preventing discomfort or injury, but also for enhancing performance. That’s why the best military boots are those that have high-quality ankle support. As you can imagine, there are many benefits to walking in military boots with ankle support, however, these are just a few of the main advantages. 

Preventing injury

Boots with ankle support are essential for keeping your feet stable as you walk, yomp, tab and exercise in order to prevent the ankle from rolling or straining. Boots that do not have the necessary ankle support will not be able to keep the foot supported which could lead to the ankle rolling or straining. That’s why boots with ankle support are particularly important for when you’re walking over uneven terrain where the ankle could easily roll.

Enhancing comfort

Whether you’re on exercise, tab, yomp, ruck or enjoying a hike in your free time, the last thing you want is for your feet to feel uncomfortable or sore. At LOWA, comfort is always a top priority when it comes to designing our military boots, and ankle support plays a big part in this. Walking in boots with ankle support provides the comfort your feet need, particularly if you’re embarking on longer expeditions and exercises. 

Improving performance

It’s impossible to put in your best physical performance without the right equipment and this doesn’t stop at the footwear you choose to wear. It’s essential that your feet are supported in the correct way in order to keep you feeling comfortable and allow you to carry on with activities in comfort. Ensuring the ankle is supported is a crucial part of this. 


When wearing boots with ankle support, you will be able to walk over any terrain, rugged or smooth, with the confidence that your feet are sufficiently supported. Boots with ankle support are equipped to tackle the most rugged of terrains, providing you with the confidence you need to tackle any environment or climate. 

Reducing the risk of long term foot problems

Boots with ankle support aren’t just important for preventing injury, they are also key in preventing the emergence of long term foot problems. Wearing ill-fitting shoes or footwear that does not offer the necessary support can cause long term foot problems such as pain in the arch of the foot or general joint pain. That’s why it’s essential to ensure that your boots have the necessary support and are fitted correctly. 

With these benefits in mind, all LOWA military boots feature exceptional ankle support. To learn more about the ankle support provided by our boots, or for further guidance on finding the perfect fitting boot for your requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.
