    The right comrade in every situation.

    Patrols cover a limited area. They are used to conduct exploration, recon­naissance or security missions. The location and length of such missions vary tremendously, a fact that places tremendous demands on mission equipment, partic­ularly the footwear. Chal­lenging terrain (like the Hindu Kush mountain range in Afgh­anistan), frequent kneeling as well as good mobility and respons­iveness require tough, but light­weight boots that offer moderate sole rigidity and provide solid support to the ligaments and tendons.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper provides the support required during abrupt movements.

    • Moderate sole rigidity
      The boot’s moderate sole rigidity supports the foot without hindering movement.

    • Comfortable
      The snug boot remains comfortable even when it is worn for an extended amount of time.

  • Security man standing indoors

    Perfect in use.

    Event security is performed to protect actors and visitors at public gath­erings. It is performed in urban areas and on natural surfaces.

    • Stable upper
      High comfort even during long usage.

    • Waterproof and breathable
      The waterproof and breathable qualities of the footwear create a continuously balanced foot climate.

    • Very robust

    Turns every landing into a pleasure.

    Para­chuting involves a range of different jumps from aero­planes to introduce troops to areas of operation. Such missions can involve jumps made at low altitudes with round para­chutes that open auto­mat­ically or military freefalls with parafoils and occa­sionally heavy rucksacks. Para­chuting places some special demands on footwear worn during such missions. Important features include closed hooks to prevent the hooks from becoming caught in suspension lines, good heel cush­ioning and a stable upper to prevent injuries during landing.

    • Stable upper
      The stable upper design provides stability during landings.

    • Closed hooks
      The closed hooks prevent them from becoming acci­dentally caught in parts of the parachute.

    • Good heel cush­ioning
      Good heel cush­ioning reduces stress during landings.

R-6 GTX Ws

LOWA® PATROL Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The R-6 GTX Ws is equipped with a LOWA RUBBER OUTSOLE. Conceived by LOWA to meet the chal­lenges of real-world use, the profile design is made from an optimised rubber compound. The result is a rubber outsole with good traction in the back­country and off trail.

Thanks to its special profile design, the LOWA® PATROL provides excep­tional support and very good grip even on chal­lenging terrain. Its sole design combines heat- and cold-insu­lating qualities and is anti­static. It is resistant to oil, petrol and contact heat as well. The sole profile is also self-cleaning.

LOWA® PATROL

TWO ZONE LACING The shoes fit correctly as a result

Thanks to the two-zone lacing system used in the R-6 GTX Ws, the forefoot and upper have their own separately adjustable lacing zones. As a result, the shoe can be indi­vidually adapted to the anatomy of the foot and laced in different ways for ascents and descents.

The R-6 GTX Ws is a comfortable companion for the wearer’s feet that is both robust and flexible. The elevated upper made of durable full-grain leather offers the reliable protection and support needed to take on the widest range of missions. The closed-lacing system is also designed with toughness in mind. It has just a few seams, a quality that enhances the footwear’s appearance. Manufactured in Europe, the women’s version of the boot features a waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX lining that keeps feet dry and a pleasant foot climate at all times. A dual-zone lacing system facilitates optimal fit to provide ideal wearing comfort. The outsole with a mission-optimised profile provides the grip needed to take on challenging terrain. The heat- and cold-insulating sole complex of the certified model is anti-slip. It is also resistant to oil, petrol and contact heat.

SINGLE INJECTION The bond between the sole and upper

The R-6 GTX Ws is footwear onto which the outsole has been directly injected. This manu­fac­turing technique creates an excep­tionally precise and very strong bond between the sole and upper.

  • Light­weight
    This process uses a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight foam padding.

  • Cush­ioning
    The plastic called poly­urethane is a foam padding that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties. The plastic retains its form and springs back to its original condition even when its millions of tiny bubbles are frequently pressed together. This, in turn, creates a good rebound effect.

  • A wide range of design options
    Thanks to direct injection, the sole can be designed in a very large number of ways. The multi­faceted prop­erties of the materials used enable the shoes to be effective in a broad number of areas.

SUPPORT FRAME Comfortably framed

With the LOWA-MONOWRAP® frame, the midsole of the R-6 GTX Ws provides the very best comfort. This three-dimen­sional midsole design was developed by LOWA in 1995. The frame comfortably cradles the foot and support it when the shoe wearer ventures across uneven surfaces. The sole design is slightly raised for shoes with a SUPPORT FRAME.

  • Good guidance for the foot
    The foot is optimally nestled into the shoe thanks to the frame’s three-dimen­sional design.

  • Increased comfort
    The special midsole design ensures snug footing in the shoe. The foot is pleasantly cradled by the three-dimen­sional frame.

  • Light­weight
    The LOWA-MONOWRAP® is made of a plastic called poly­urethane. It is a very light­weight material.

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for R-6 GTX Ws have been specially designed with the anatomy of women’s feet in mind. The last plays a key role in the ultimate fit of a boot. Women’s feet have less volume than men’s feet. As a result, the instep height and the ball area of these lasts have been altered.
