Milipol – Lowa Innox GTX Mid TF in MultiCam

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

The title pretty much sums it up. The Lowa Task Force Innox GTX Mid is coming early next year in MultiCam. A French customer has already placed an order and they will be available to European customers. There are currently no plans to bring these into the US. Rather a “digital camouflage” model will offered in the US instead. The boot is currently offered in Black and Coyote.


The Innox incorprates a Gore-Tex lining, a PU injected midsole with their proprietary PU Monowrap frame construction for stability along with the NXat sole unit for traction and stability.

Milipol – Paraboot

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Talk about bringing back some memories.  I was walking through the halls at Milipol when I glanced at a booth full of boots.  One of the models reminded me of a pair of jump boots I owned when I was a lot younger.  You old heads will probably remember them.  Fully leather lined and padded with a thick sole.

This model is a little different than the original jump boot in that it has zippers and no ankle reinforcements.

When I flipped the boot over, it still had the same Parasaut sole but I am told this model is now for aircrew use.

Salomon – X ALP MTN GTX

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Along the perimeter of the Edgar Brothers booth at DSEI were a series of glass cases.  Inside one of these were four examples of Salomon footwear.  Three of the boots were from their Forces line but the fourth boot was a commercial mountaineering model.  

Turns out, it’s the X ALP MTN GTX and it’s currently undergoing wear trials with several European military and civil rescue organizations.  

It’s a GORE-TEX lined, lightweight mountaineering boot, designed to be used with B1 crampons.  They’ve balanced the sole system to make it flexible enough for approaches yet stiff enough for use with crampons.  


The Nubuck leather upper is paired with Cordura and a 3D edging chassis.  It’s got true to-toe lacing as well as a rubber toecap and heel counter.  Additionally, the forefoot is protected with EVA foam and the tongue is also padded.  


They’ve chosen the Contragrip sole which is combined with an EVA shaped footbed as well as a carbon fiber “edging” stiffener.  

Now, we just need to see a militarized version of this boot in the Forces line.
