Our Backs Thank You

Panjshir, Afghanistan

Hey, I just want to say that I love your boots. As a U.S. Army Infantryman, I have a lot of experience with all kinds of different types of boots. By far, the Zephyr GTX are the best that I have ever worn.

I'm currently in the rugged mountainous terrain of Afghanistan and these boots are handling like a champ. I'm not the only one who likes them. My whole platoon loves them, from our assault elements who are continuously chasing after the enemy to our snipers who have to sneak up on the enemy. The no break in period and the strong yet lightweight material are excellent.

Anyways... I just wanted to express my feelings toward your product and say: keep it up. We military service members who do an extreme amount of walking, carrying heavy gear on our backs, really appreciate it. Thank You.

Thx 4 the 16's

* AT is short for the Appalachian Trail - a 2,000 mile continuous 'wilderness' footpath from Mt. Oglethorpe, Georgia, to Baxter Peak, in central Maine. To learn more about the trail and the conservancy volunteers who manage it, click here

Dear LOWA:  Just returned from my first backpacking trip on the AT in my new Lowa Ranger GTX's.

They were awesome. Very light weight, but very sturdy with plenty of support. Thanks for making them in a size 16. I will be buying more when I wear these out.

Please don't outsource them in the future. People who know quality shouldn't mind paying the price.

Gone But Not Forgotten

Somewhere inside this building... is a great pair of shoes.

I bought my first Lowa's 6 years ago. They took me everywhere! Rain, snow, or hot sun. I LOVED THEM!!!!

My wonderful husband was in a cleaning mood when he found my muddy, dusty, well-worn boots.

He donated them to the Goodwill. 

I have not been the same since. The moral of the story is...  If you have them keep them, if you don't, buy some. And, for goodness sakes don't let your husband be a great humanitarian when it comes to your LOWAS.
