Lowa Z-8N GTX Black

The Lowa Z8N GTX boots are a great tactical lightweight boot which has been built on the success of the Lowa Zephyr boot. Lowa wanted to make a more stable and supportive boot with an integrated Fast Rope capability due to requests from military and law enforcement personnel.

This boot takes the qualities from the traditional combat boot and the multi-functional military boots, therefore giving you a ‘hybrid’ boot capable of various different tasks and functions. It provides great support and protection with the added characteristics of a lightweight hiking boot. The highly abrasion resistant laces combined with the Fast Rope technology allows you to lace up the boots quickly, great for when on call.

The Lowa Z8N GTX boots have a Gore-Tex® MS Light Rock lining which provides extra comfort in warmer conditions as well as being fully waterproof. It has a hydrophobic nubuck leather upper and is available in sizes 6.5 to 13 UK. With the added benefit of half sizes you can ensure a great fit.

The Lowa Cross Duty patented Monowrap® midsole unit is constructed with a firm 7/8 TPU stabilizer, offering optimal traction and perfect support with its high-quality surface materials. Aspects within this include the PU heel stabiliser, PU-Frame, stabilizer and EVA Polyethylene rubber sole, which all combine to make this boot very stable.

The plastic stabilizer element in The Lowa Z8N GTX boots features in all multi-functional footwear. It improves ankle & joint stability and torsional rigidity. The Stabilizer is an element of man-made materials. Take a look at some great reviews about these boots:

“These boots are amazing...comfortable right out of the box. Provide superior support and great cushioning.”

“I use this boots at work, a lot of walking and on pavement and in the wilderness, superb ankle support, best boot that I have worn in my military and law enforcement career”

“Great boot, comfortable, sturdy and as described on website.”


• Lightweight & Gore-Tex waterproof lining

Best. Boots. Everrrrr

I’ve had mine for almost 2 years now and they’re only just starting to look a bit tired. They’re the most comfortable item of footwear I have ever owned, they are properly waterproof, they don’t squeak horribly on certain floors like some other boots do either. They’re super lightweight and supportive around the ankle, they’re cushioned enough in the toe and top of the foot for if you need to do a sweeping leg kick etc. And they’re easy to drive in. I’ll be looking to get more of these in future!

Best boots for rough ground

Comfort out of the box, waterproof for real, even in long wet grass and mud, very supportive. I have weakish ankles and am prone to sprains. I wear these when walking over rough slippery ground with my hound and they seem to provide that extra bit of ankle support.

Highly recommended.

Like most Officers I have tried Magnums, Adidas, Under Armour etc. These are by far the best boots on the market.
Comfort as soon as they're out of the box. Plenty of support and look good.
Although these cost a little more than the others mentioned, they have outlasted all.
I will definately be buying these again.

Amazing boots from Lowa

Previously I've worn the Combat GTX which are amazing boots. I've always found Lowa to be brilliant value for money, especially considering I got 6 years out of my last pair of them. I decided I needed something a little lighter for the summer and ordered these. Definitely impressed by them. Whilst they aren't as high in the leg as the Combat GTX, the support is definitely there and the way the sole cradles your foot is amazing. I've always replaced my insoles with ones from Superfeet but I don't feel the need to with these boots. Given they're on my feet for at least 12 hours a day, they are just as comfortable at 2000hrs as they were at 0730 in the locker room. Lowa boots are definitely a case of you get what you pay for. Colleagues at work sometimes struggle to get a year of a pair of Magnums. Like I said previously, I get at least 4 years out of a pair of Lowas. When you consider our boot allowance is £98 per annum, I'm in profit and have a far better boot. Also, I'm diabetic and I find I have no foot issues with using these boots. All in all, I would recommend these to anyone needing a good sturdy boot.

Sizeing info

I moved from using the LOWA COMBAT GTX (which I still believe to be the best boot available on the market) to the Z8N GTX. I was very happy that they continue to offer a good degree of ankle support / protection whilst being quite a bit lighter and allowing for slightly more mobility when running or climbing. My main issue with the Z8N was with the sizing I ordered the 8.5 as I had fitted this perfectly in the combat boot but found that they were considerably longer, I believe this is due to it being a more pointed toe than the combat. I would recommend ordering half size down if you are making the same type of move.

Truly waterproof, comfortable and stable

I walk my hound off road about 5 miles a day every day in all weathers and on flat grass to very rough and boggy ground. I have bought Lowa boots for many years now and I bought these because my old resoled boots are beginning to get damp and I need dry boots for the next day. I've only done about 70 miles so far in these since February but they have been comfortable, truly waterproof and stable from the start. I expect to use these more now in the wet grass and snow in the coming winter.

Quality boots

I have had these boots for four years now and they are still amazing. Great comfort on long shifts. When the soles wear thin I will definitely replace them with the same.

Very comfortable boot

I couldn't be happier with these boots. They are very comfy right from first use, versatile, durable and brilliantly waterproof.

Best Yet...

These are really great: very robust, warm and comfortable. I have been wearing this kind of boots for more than 12 years and these are, by far, one of the best pairs I have had
