Tested by members of the British Armed Forces’ 3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines, LOWA Elite Jungle Military boots earned their stripes in the Central American jungles of Belize and the South East Asian jungles of Brunei. Lightweight, hard-wearing and durable, LOWA Elite Jungle boots allow their wearer’s feet to breathe and actively draw sweat and heat away in order to combat discomfort.
Built with functionality in mind, these LOWA boots are made with full-grain leather uppers to ensure they are as sturdy and long-lasting as possible. These uppers are also naturally moisture-resistant, making them ideal for extremely humid or wet conditions. Lastly, the way they look will improve over time as a result of the patina that naturally develops through handling the leather. In other words - ‘ally looking’.
Other elements of the boot’s upper are comprised of Cordura® fabric, a material that is robust and resistant to abrasions, tears and scratches. Cordura® is also completely waterproof with liquids rolling right off it rather than being absorbed. Capable of meeting rigorous physical demands, Cordura® fabric is the perfect material to complement traditional full-grain leather uppers.
Fitted with Vibram® Aconcagua outsoles, these LOWA boots provide outstanding grip on any surface thanks to the special lug design that has been made to ensure the best possible traction. Moreover, these Vibram soles come with cushioned EVA midsoles to prevent their wearer’s feet from becoming sore or fatigued during long treks over uneven terrain.
