Here's a short video clip of the Lowa Boots range stocked at Patrol Store.

The History Of LOWA Boots

LOrenz WAgner founded LOWA in the Bavarian village of Jetzendorf near Munich, Germany in 1923.

The LOWA boots story begins with the production of Oxford Brogues. The high quality of the handwork in the Norwegian welt-stitched shoes – a manufacturing process that stemmed from the mountains – soon established the need to expand the LOWA facilities in the late 1920s.

During the Korean Conflict (1949/50) the cost of materials leapt by 50%, and leather became the object of speculation. Just to be able to continue production, LOWA had to purchase highly priced materials. As prices fell and bills became due, the operation became insolvent overnight.

In 1955, Wagner’s daughter Berti and her husband Josef ‘Sepp’ Lederer took over the company and expanded the offerings step-by-step in the same direction as the founder.

Lowa Boots Today

LOWA is the market leader in the German-speaking countries as well as in the Benelux and continues to build its prominence in the important export markets of North America, Asia and Eastern Europe.

Its strategy of producing 100 percent of its products in Germany and Europe and to remain in its headquarters in Jetzendorf still proves itself a model of success.

Customers appreciate the combination of tradition and innovation and value the functionality, quality and fit of LOWA footwear.

LOWA boots are made in Europe, under the world’s most stringent manufacturing, environmental and labour regulations.

Lowa have earned a global reputation for making great- fitting boots. Details like how a LOWA boot tongue automatically centres on your foot make a big difference when you’re out on patrol.

The same PU (polyurethane) that makes their boots so supportive is also the most durable midsole material available.

PU is more expensive, so not widely used. Boots made with PU last at least twice as long as boots with EVA midsoles. With PU, you get better value for your money and fewer boots end up in the landfill. Lowa boots are made to last!

The patented, lasted GORE-TEX® liner used in LOWA boots is more durable and creates a smoother fit, this results in less potential for blisters or foot discomfort.

LOWA have also patented their Monowrap construction, which wraps the foot in a lightweight, yet firmly supportive PU frame, that delivers excellent stability with very lightweight upper materials.

LOWA use a softer PU (polyurethane) in their midsoles that provides better shock absorption and ultimate comfort underfoot. Why cradle the foot in comfort? Because it’s your foot, that’s why! When feet begin to hurt, the ‘fun’ is done.

After reading the above, it’s probably no surprise that LOWA are one of the most popular brand manufacturer of walking boots in Europe. It also follows that due to their hard wearing practicality and comfort, it is also very common to see uniformed police, military and security personnel wearing Lowa Tactical boots.
