    Your ideal partner.

    Special missions are law enforcement operations conducted by tactical units on variable terrain for the purpose of fighting terrorism, rescuing hostages and enforcing arrest warrants. Footwear worn during special missions has particular features that enable it to meet the variable requirements of such operations in the best-possible way. These critical features include high agility created by moderate upper and sole rigidity, multidirectional soles for fast changes of direction and low weight for fast-paced missions.

    • High agility
      The boot’s upper and sole stiffness do not limit the user and have been optimised for fast movements.

    • Multidirectional sole
      The multidirectional sole provides the foot with the support it needs during fast movements without limiting manoeuvrability.

    • Lightweight
      The lightweight design significantly increases the footwear’s dynamics.

    Descend safely.

    Fast roping is a quicker technique than abseiling. Fast roping involves mission forces sliding down a rope from helicopters without using descenders. The method enables mission forces to land on ships and to be introduced to hard-to-reach terrain or developed areas. Because of the friction produced by rope sliding, the medial side of the boot must be equipped with heat protection. Similar to footwear worn during parachuting, the boots must have such special features as closed lace-up hooks and good heel cushioning to lessen the impact of landing.

    • Protected medial side of the boot
      The protected medial side of the boot prevents premature wear and tear caused by sliding on a rope.

    • Closed hooks
      The closed hooks prevent the footwear from getting caught in the rope during descent.

    • Good heel cushioning
      The good heel cushioning lessens the force of the impact with the ground.

LOWA® CROSS Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The ZEPHYR GTX MID TF is equipped with a LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE. Conceived by LOWA to meet the challenges of real-world use, the profile design is made from an optimised rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the backcountry and off trail.

The LOWA® CROSS equipped with a special profile design provides solid grip on a range of different surfaces. The self-cleaning sole profile is designed for both paved and unpaved terrain.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of the ZEPHYR GTX MID TF is bonded to the upper in a technically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.

  • Lightweight
    This process uses a plastic called polyurethane. It is a very lightweight foam padding.

  • Cushioning
    The plastic called polyurethane is a foam padding that has very good cushioning properties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • A wide range of design options
    Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multifaceted properties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.
