Lowa Z8N Boot – A new design and material

Lowa Z8N boot – Introduction

Lowa have released a new boot. It is called the Lowa Z8N boot. This Lowa boot is different from the rest. In this post I am going to talk about how and what makes the Lowa Z8N boot different from the rest. The difference is massive in most parts but still based on a high end patrol Lowa always seem to deliver.


Lowa Z8N boot – The Look

I am going to start on the look, as this boot is clearly different from most if not all other tactical boots on the market today. The Lowa Z8N boot is an pugraded version of the old Lowa Zephyr boot. You can see this in the look of the Z8N boot. It looks similar and has the funky plastic part on the side of the boot with is a famous trait of the old Lowa Zephyr boot. When looking at the boot the other thing that will catch you eye straight away is the leather of the boot. The leather is made of “nubuck” buffalo leather. This leather has a different finish from most other leather boots. The look makes the boot look more softer and funky. The reason the boot has been designed like this is because the idea was that military and police needed a dual boot. A boot that has the lightweight hiking ability and at the same time had a very tactical edge and the Lowa Z8N boot was born and made to look like this.

This Lowa boot is full with a lot of technology. The first thing about this boot it contains Gore-Tex technology that means the boot is fully waterproof and built with the highest quality materials available. The boot is very lightweight and very comfortable straight from the off. The reason for the comfort is the inner lining is made by Gore-Tex and is called performance comfort. As the name suggest it is designed for comfort. The sole is designed to be a cross sole. This means it will be affective in many different jobs and all different types of terrain. The leather is very tough and durable which is very important as we like our boots to last a very long time. The top of the heel is made of the world famous Codura® fabric. This fabric is one of the toughest nylon in the market today and will not let you down. The Lowa Z8N boot has fantastic specification and will not let you down.


Lowa Z8N boot – Where can I get a pair?

Lowa is a brand that is so popular worldwide. It is not hard to find a pair of the new Lowa Z8N boots. My strong advise will always go somewhere that is trusted by Lowa and know a bit about what they are selling. I always go to Patrolstore they know what they are talking about when it comes to the correct boots for the correct job.

Lowa boots Patrol

Is this post I am going to ask the question, is the Lowa boots patrol the best patrol boot on the market. I am sure everyone has heard of this boot either they have a pair or know someone that does. The name Lowa is big in the police boots world and only getting bigger.


Lowa boots patrol – Look

The Lowa boots patrol has a nice all leather look to it. It is a wide looking combat boot. It has big hook eyelets and a rubber bit that goes around the boot, this is here for a a very good reason. I have not heard of many people that think this boot is ugly. I think the Lowa boots patrol is a smart looking boot. No senior rank or manager will moan at you for having these for work due to the look.

Lowa boots patrol – Specification

The Lowa boots patrol has a wide range of technology that will make your patrol a lot easier on your feet. The boot is a full grain leather boot. This makes the boot easier to clean and maintain. This leather will also last much longer then most so the boots will last a long time. This is great as we like our boots lasting a long time. The boots have a easy on/off hook system. This is quicker then any side zip system I have tried to date. The Lowa boots patrol takes me seconds to take on and off, this is amazing after a very long shift. The lowa boots patrol is very water resistant not waterproof but this is good if you are looking for a cooler boot.


The Lining in the Lowa boots patrol is made of Cambrelle. this might not mean much to you but let me explain what it does. It is a synthetic lining that is great in both cold and warm conditions as it insulates in the cold and vents when it is hot. This makes the boot great for all round year wear and also keeps your feet nice and comfortable.

I am saving the biggest and best thing about this boot until last. The sole of the boot is a Vibram Tsavo sole unit. This sole unit is designed to be used on all terrains with out loosing its grip. This is great if the chase starts in town but ends up in a farm. This sole unit is also designed to be resoled with ease. If you buy this boot the idea is once the sole has worn down you send them away to get resoled. This could make the boot last about 7 years plus. That means even thought the boot is over £100 at the begging in there life you are saving a lot of money.
