A firm favourite with the military, the Lowa Combat boot is now available in army MOD brown. LOWA's Military specification Gore-Tex® tactical boot is the product of 90 years of European boot-building craftsmanship.

The sharp eyed amongst you, may have seen/read my review on the Combat GTX boot in Black, of which I purchased at the same time, as these, so the review is the same, here it is:
Ex RAF Aero Engineer, I have worn LOWA footwear for over 23 years consecutive years, rarely does a day goes by, when I do not slip my LOWA boots on, often 16 hours of continuous wearing, and never ever a blister, rubbing etc etc, these boots may command a decent price tag, you really do get what you pay for, an excellent performing boot, straight out of the box, each and every time, for the very time, I have just teamed my LOWA boots with the Darn Tough Vermont brand of socks, and together, well, absolute unbeatable comfort, I will however, recommend, and I'm glad I decided on the extra 1/2 size fitting, that the full cushion and extra cushion range of the Darn Tough Vermont socks, does take advantage of the extra 1/2 size fitting, if you are reading this, and still thinking about the cost, can you really put a price on comfort, warmth, waterproof dry feet, in my opinion, the answer is a firm NO, as we only get one pair of feet, and you need to look after them. (Posted on 19/01/2016)
Try the boots on at the end of your working day as your feet could have increased by up to half a size due to vigorous activity.
Always wear your chosen socks when trying on footwear.
Please remember that LOWA boots are available in half sizes.
Fit the larger foot first but leave it unlaced. Push your foot as far forward in the boot as possible; you are now looking for a gap of approx 10mm in the space now left behind the heel.
Put the other boot on and lace them both up with your heel well back into the heel counters. They should feel snug around the ball and instep of your feet without having to lace them too tightly.
Walk up and down and experience slight heel lift only, and minimum foot slippage. You should not feel the front of the boot at all, even when trying to push your foot forward inside the boot.
Boots may become a little wider in time (but do not rely on this when purchasing).
All boots, however comfy they feel from new, need a little time to soften up.
Length difference from full size to full size = 8.46 mm (half size to next size = 4.23 mm).
Ball of the foot width increases max 3 mm from full size to next full size (half size to next size = max 1.5mm).
Wide Fitting Last
If choosing a wide fitting boot then the following width dimensions are added to the standard width: Ball of the foot width increases 2 mm on each size. Toe volume and instep height increases also.
If using your foot length as your guide (choose your longest foot), then add 10 mm before converting to UK size, to allow adequate length inside the boot. This is classed as the Mondopoint measuring system.
