    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.

    Perfect in use.

    Desert warfare is a military assignment carried out in very arid regions where the temperature fluctuates sharply. The objective of desert missions is exploration, reconnaissance, security or combat in very arid regions. The terrain is frequently very dry and dusty, while the temperature of the ground will rise and fall sharply. These are qualities requiring heat-dissipating materials and good breathability to regulate the temperature of the footwear. The boots must have soles that offer good grip in dust and sand as well as a stable upper to prevent wearers from turning their ankles on terrain covered by deep sand.

    • Heat-dissipating and very breathable
      The material’s heat-dissipating and very breathable qualities provide comfort even under such demanding conditions.

    • Good grip in sand and dust
      The good grip in sand and dust provides reliable momentum on challenging terrain.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper offers good support and protection from turned ankles in deep sand.

    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.

    Turns every landing into a pleasure.

    Parachuting involves a range of different jumps from aeroplanes to introduce troops to areas of operation. Such missions can involve jumps made at low altitudes with round parachutes that open automatically or military freefalls with parafoils and occasionally heavy rucksacks. Parachuting places some special demands on footwear worn during such missions. Important features include closed hooks to prevent the hooks from becoming caught in suspension lines, good heel cushioning and a stable upper to prevent injuries during landing.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper design provides stability during landings.

    • Closed hooks
      The closed hooks prevent them from becoming accidentally caught in parts of the parachute.

    • Good heel cushioning
      Good heel cushioning reduces stress during landings.

ZEPHYR HI TF

LOWA® CROSS Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The ZEPHYR HI 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.

LOWA® CROSS

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cushioning and improved comfort, the sole of the ZEPHYR HI 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.
