The black LOWA Z8N GTX® military boots builds on the success of the highly rated LOWA Zephyr as a tactical lightweight military boot. LOWA decided to develop a more stable, a more supportive boot & with an integrated fast rope capability after receiving requests from military, SF and Law enforcement personnel. Operators needed a boot that sat between the traditional Combat boot and multi-functional military boots (like the LOWA Zephyr). Military personnel needed a ‘hybrid’ boot capable of a number of different tasks and functions.
The target was to have a lightweight boot that still retained the stability and the walking characteristics of a lightweight hiking boot but offered users the support and protection found in a tactical boot. A lightweight GORETEX® MS Light Rock lining provides extended comfort in warmer conditions.
Technology that includes: hydrophobic leather, highly abrasion resistant laces, a patented Monowrap® midsole and LOWA Fusion® technology, EVA Polyethylene rubber and LOWA’s own ‘Cross Duty’ all combine with a unique Fast Rope insert to give todays operators a truly multi-functional boot. The LOWA Z8N GORETEX® boots are a more supportive ‘brother’ model to the LOWA Zephyr.
The plastic stabilizer element features in all multi-functional footwear. It improves ankle & joint stability stability and torsional rigidity. The Stabilizer is an element of man-made materials.
This MONOWRAP® sole unit construction with a firm 7/8 TPU stabilizer is the most stable and offers optimal traction and perfect support with its high-quality surface materials.
