They also showed us the Focus GTX QC. This quarter cut shoe features a Gore-tex lining and a lightweight trekking sole which is actually stiffer then the Zephyr. It also incorporates a unique lacing system with free floating fabric loops that allows a more customized fit across a wider range of foot types.

Lowa took their tried and true Zephyr technology and built a high top boot for LE and those who require a black boot. They have incorporated a Gore-Tex lining and used their proprietary MONOWRAP you will remember from the Zephyr.

Finally, Lowa Combat Boots for Women

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

As we see more and more women on the battlefield, it’s good to see manufacturers step up to the plate and add women’s sizes. According to a report on www.militaryboots.com, Lowa is doing just that by adding sizing in two of the most popular Task Force styles. Make sure you go over and read the whole article.

Lowa Boots – Spy Photos

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

We previously wrote about Lowa Boots at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. What we didn’t talk about was a meeting the Editor sat in on with Lowa USA, discussing the development of the first US market Task Force boots. Previously, all Task Force boots have been designed for the European market and eventually brought here to the US. Based on the highly successful AL-X line, these three new tactical boots will be lightweight yet provide excellent ankle support. Also, both of the mid-height boots feature closed eyelets.

Please remember that these are all prototypes and the styles may change before they reach market. They are tentatively slated for release in Spring 09.

Below is the Desert Mid variant. It is not lined with Gore-tex.

Lowa Task Force AL-X Tactical Desert Mid

This version is a Black Gore-tex lined boot intended for Law Enforcement.

The low top version below will probably not be lined with Gore-tex in order to keep the price point down and because a boot is really better suited to sustained wet weather. It is intended for tactical training such as hand to hand or range time as well as for light duties such as bike patrol.

The new Lowa boots will be available from AFMO.

Lowa Black Elite

Lowa Black Elite

A new version of the Lowa Desert Elite which is a heavy duty desert boot based on the famous Lowe “Berg Schuhe” or Mountain Boot, called the Black Elite is now available but only in the UK. The boot does not feature a Gore-tex lining due to its intended purpose but does offer Cambrelle lining in the heel cup paired with a Vita-tex lining throughout the entire boot. Unlike new Lowa boots being released for use in the US, the Black Elite has open top hooks.

Available in the UK from RV Ops.

Lowa Task Force Boots

Friday, August 15th, 2008

At Outdoor Retailer Lowa Boots revealed to me that they will be bringing the UK-only (up until now) Desert Elite boot to the US market. They have realized for some time that Soldiers are wearing the Desert Seeker in conditions that really call for a heavier boot so they have decided to introduce the Desert Elite here.

There was also discussion of importing some of the styles from the MPS line including the Jungle Boot. We asked specifically about the Arctic GTX Mountaineering boot and were told that if there were a solid order for any of the line they would bring it in to the US. Unfortunately, the Biomex technology will not make its way to our shores as there have been issues with noise produced by the ankle supports.

For more information on the MPS range look here and for the entire Task Force line go here. Our favorite place to purchase Lowa boots is AFMO.
