With the Sucess of the Lowa Zepyher boot well established now. Lowa have introduced the Lowa Z8N Boot for SF , Close Protection and Law Enforcement Officers. It is a cross between the combat boot and a multifunctional boot. It is tough and lightweight. Lowa listened and have created boot that was required.
The black LOWA Z8N 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 boots GORETEX® are a more supportive ‘brother’ model to the LOWA Zephyr.
