The OTS Military show is holding its defence show at the UWE Bristol Conference and Exhibition Centre on 19th-20th November. Aimed directly at the Outdoor Industry, it provides buyers and visitors with a first-hand look at the sort of equipment that is available this year. 2019 marks the third year for the show and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before with brands like Lyon Equipment, Petzl, and Keela joining us in showing the best we have to offer to Military buyers.
Making sure that you have well-maintained and a well-fitted pair of walking boots is one of the most important first steps when it comes to any hike or expedition. A properly fitted pair of boots will provide you with all the support you need to make walking comfortable and effortless as well as avoiding blisters and other unfortunate potential side effects of long walks.
A few years ago, LOWA Military Boots supplied a number of black LOWA Zephyr military boots to a film production company to be worn in an upcoming film starring Gerard Butler. That film turned out to be Hunter Killer, an action-packed blockbuster based on the novel Firing Point by Don Keith and George Wallace. Seeing as how we supplied the boots for the film, we thought we’d give it a watch and write a bit about what we thought. First though, here is the trailer in case you haven't seen it already:
At the time of writing, there are 35 military boots, 23 police boots, and 11 safety & work boots on the Task Force Distribution website. You may question whether there is any need for 69 different types of boot, however, each and every one of these LOWA boots has something special about it and is ideally suited to a particular person's job, their use, setting or season. While they all excel in their own way, some boots are undoubtedly more popular than others and have even developed something of a fan-base.
