Lowa Patrol Black
The Lowa Patrol Boots, part of the Task Force Collection, doesn't have the Gore-Tex lining of the Lowa Mountain or Combat Boots. However, what this means in practice, is that thanks to the single Cambrelle® hard wearing lining, you have a more versatile pair of Lowa boots that will dry out quicker if your feet have been fully submersed and will provide maximum breathability and heat management in warmer climates.
Cambrelle® as a synthetic lining, is insulated for colder climates and ventilated for warmer climates. These boots are smart, durable, easy to look after, and incorporate all of Lowa’s fantastic foot technology. This makes the Patrol Boot an excellent all-rounder, for uniform and those dedicated to the pursuit of an outdoor life anywhere. Lowa Patrol Boots are ideal for police, security professionals, military and emergency services personnel.
With no breaking in time you can literally hit the ground running. The Vibram Tsavo sole will give you excellent grip whatever the terrain, the polyurethane midsole will make you feel as if your feet have built in cushions, and are even crampon compatible (strap on). The Lowa Boots Patrol is a tough boot that will take whatever you can throw at it. But make no mistake, these are hard-working boots that not only protect and support your feet and ankles thanks to the achilles leather flex panel in the heel, but do so with a superior level of comfort.
Added to the impressive array of features (including Lowa climate-control system and climate-control insoles to keep your feet fresh and odour-free), they also come in half sizes to ensure a precise fit whatever your shoe size. Sizes 4-5.5 are specifically designed for a woman’s footbed and every size is resoleable, making them excellent value for money.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here are what some happy customers have said about these Lowa Boots Patrol:
“Don’t be put off by the relative high price for these boots, as you get what you pay for! I was dubious about paying over £100 for a pair of boots, but what you get is excellent quality, durability and support. Warm and water resistant (who needs waterproof anyway? I don’t make a habit of standing out in the wet long enough for it to soak through). Have worn these on numerous deployments and they have never let me down. Historically, the boots I have bought needed to be ‘worn in’ and were uncomfortable from the box, but these slipped on, and gave me no discomfort at all! Well worth buying!”
“I did feel like i was walking on air in them and felt so much taller, they were so comfortable and i'm really glad that i spent the money on a good pair of boots for work, i don't intend to buy another pair for a while if i can help it!!!”
“These boots I have only recently purchased and have worn without the usual pain and discomfort you would expect from a new boot. They are simply brilliant and I would advise anyone thinking of buying a pair to do so."

Still the best
Not in anymore but still had a pair of lowa' from 20 years ago with plenty of mileage on them. spoilt myself to a new pair and as ever no disappointment with these, out of the box onto the feet and out for a five miler with the dog. no hotspots, blisters aches or pains. work on the railways now and find these equally good for walking on the tracks etc as they are for tabbing, marches and any of the tours i was on. first class service from Patrol Store added just a little more comfort to the process. have recommended boots and patrol store to people i work with now as they all seem to want the gucci kit instead of the issue foot killers.
No Pains or Aches
I bought these boots very recently and was very surprised after wearing them for the first time, on a 10 hour shift and in total for 15 hours of the day, that my feet felt the same as they did, when i put them on that morning. FINE!!!
I was a little worried to be wearing brand new boots for such a long time, i expected my feet to be in pain, really sore and achey, happily for me they were not. At the end of the day i did begin to feel i think a blister beginning, but nothing has materialised since, i'm glad to say. The only other small issue i had, was that the cuff at the top of the left boot did cause some redness and was slightly sore, but that was all.
I bought the 7.5 as that is the size i normally take in shoes or boots, these came up a little big, but i'm glad for the space that i have, because as the day wore on with all the standing around, i could feel my feet swelling and was gratful for the room.
Was a little difficult stepping up on a small step to haul people out of a crowd, as the boots do not have much flexibility or give, i'm hoping over time with more wear, that will happen.

I have purchased several pairs of walking boots over the years and find most require some breaking in before they become comfortable.
These boots I have only recently purchased and have worn without the usual pain and discomfort you would expect from a new boot. They are simply brilliant and I would advise anyone thinking of buying a pair to do so.
I bought a pair of these a few years ago, and they have never let me down. I used them for road marches and on exercise over rough terrain and have easily done 500 miles in them with no blisters.
I agree with the other review, they do take some walking in, so take that into account if you need them at short notice!
These boots are really built to last, and there is no disadvantage to the GoreTex models (GoreTex always seems a bit pointless to me when there is a big whole in the top for your foot...) Just polish them regularly and they will be just as waterproof and never let you down.
Don't think about it, they are the best of the best and over the years the price will be worth it!
Excellent bit of kit
Having just had an operation to mend a femur I bought a new pair of boots to give me better ankle support. These are excellent.
They have much better grip on snow and ice than my Berghaus boots and are well padded without feeling soft or loose. So far they don't show any signs of letting water in either.
My only complaint would be needing about a dozen miles to break them in properly but that's due to my asymmetric walk, the boot on my bad leg was comfortable from the start. Now they've been worn a bit both are brilliant.
I'd suggest wearing two pairs of socks the first few times to stop any slight stiffness in the leather causing hotspots but otherwise they're ready to go from the box.Delivery Information
