Key Elements that make the Zephyr standout:

» Proudly crafted in Europe by a boot making enterprise over 90 years old.

» Outsole – The Lowa Cross outsole is a proprietary rubber blend formulated to hold up well while trekking off road with light to moderate loads. The rubber offers a nice grip on smooth or indoor surfaces as well making the Zephyr’s excellent for CQB or Urban operations. The Zephyr outsole is designed to offer lightweight and flexibility. You get the comfort, flexibility and performance of an athletic shoe with the durability of a tactical boot.

Suggestion – if you regularly pack heavy loads 30 LBS and above and or traverse rocky terrain on a regular basis you may want to try the Lowa Uplander Series. The Uplander sole is slightly thicker and heavier as it provides additional support and will hold up on repeated exposure to gravel and rocks.

» Midsole – Lowa is the leader in polyurethane midsoles. Polyurethane midsoles are only used as components in higher quality performance footwear – why? Because polyurethane and the manufacturing process used to incorporate polyurethane is expensive and slow as it requires lots of attention to detail and craftsmanship. The midsole provides a layer of stability and cushion between the insole and the outsole. It is both durable and flexible and acts as a shock absorber for the feet. Lowa incorporates polyurethane reinforcement into the toe bumper and the heel guard and this adds wear life under rough wear conditions. The Zephyr pioneered the use of polyurethane monowrap construction for a lightweight boot upper reinforcement.

» Lowa Fit– The Lowa Zephyrs will comfortably fit right out of the box. They fit true to size and contour nicely to the shape of your foot. The boot tongue and padded ankle are designed to hug comfortably which is a support enhancer and keeps debri out. Lowa designers have strategically positioned cushioning throughout the boot which optimize performance. AFMO guarantees a perfect fit and we will gladly exchange your Zephyr in the event the size you order is not correct.

» Weight – weighing in at approximately 2.4 LBS per pair the Zephyr is designed for the tactical athlete and will be a performance enhancer for those who rely on gear to get them back safely.

» Upper – The 2.0MM Split Grain Leather combined with 1000 Denier Nylon Cordura creates a lightweight, abrasion resistant upper with some waterproof properties (Nylon Cordura), treat the split leather with a

Finally wore 'em out February 6, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from TX United States  
Luckily I did some research and ordered a half size larger than I normally wear. These were my first choice for a non-Gortex boot which would not be too warm in hot climates.  I only have two minor negative comments about the boot. The laces didn't slide easily through the eyelets and wore out easily. My second complaint is that I think they are the ugliest boot around.  Having said that, I bought a second pair. The soles finally wore out on the first pair and split across the ball of my foot.  These boots were primarily worn in rugged rocky terrain with a lot of thorny vegetation. Ankle support was adequate during extended humps, CQB, helo ops and standing around on the flat range.  The only care I gave the boots was from the business end of a water hose.  When I first examined them, I expected the sole to separate from the boot but it never did. Several of my buddies have them and everyone loves these boots because they are so comfortable and durable.

Huh? January 3, 2012
Reviewer: Dennis Jones from Las Vegas, NV United States  
One size fits all? Where are the various widths?
Seems like a decent tactical shoe but without widths, it is useless. Sorry....
