ZEPHYR MK2 LO Ws

A new era begins. ZEPHYR MK2 LO Ws

The ZEPHYR MK2 LO Ws represents the next stage in the evolution of this legendary mission shoe and was developed specially for women. The highly breathable fabric lining is highly abrasion-resistant and ideal for use in dry or hot and damp climate zones. The LO-CUT upper’s strengths in terms of weight and agility are partic­ularly evident during close combat. The upper is made from a combination of water-repellent, tear-resistant suede and abrasion-resistant, breathable CORDURA® material. The dual-layer PU midsole with a MONOWRAP® frame surrounds and supports the foot like an exoskeleton. The ZEPHYR MK2 LO Ws is certified as occu­pa­tional footwear in accordance with EN ISO 20347:2012. It is anti-static and has a cold and heat-insu­lating sole complex. The outsole is not only anti-slip – it is also resistant to oil, petrol and contact heat.

    Your ideal partner.

    Special missions are law enforcement oper­ations conducted by tactical units on variable terrain for the purpose of fighting terrorism, rescuing hostages and enforcing arrest warrants. Footwear worn during special missions has particular features that enable it to meet the variable requirements of such oper­ations in the best-possible way. These critical features include high agility created by moderate upper and sole rigidity, multi­direc­tional soles for fast changes of direction and low weight for fast-paced missions.

    • High agility
      The boot’s upper and sole stiffness do not limit the user and have been optimised for fast movements.

    • Multi­direc­tional sole
      The multi­direc­tional sole provides the foot with the support it needs during fast movements without limiting manoeuv­rability.

    • Light­weight
      The light­weight design signi­ficantly increases the foot­wear’s dynamics.

LOWA® X-TRAC MILITARY Ws Outsole with an optimal rubber compound

The ZEPHYR MK2 LO 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.

DOUBLE INJECTION Upper and sole become a fixed unit

To provide effective cush­ioning and improved comfort, the sole of the ZEPHYR MK2 LO Ws is bonded to the upper in a tech­nically demanding injection process. The upper boot is placed into a specially designed mould. Various layers of PU foam padding are then poured into it. In the process, the sole and upper are bonded together.

  • 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.

Task Force

WOMEN LAST Adapted to the anatomy of women’s feet

To ensure perfect fit, the lasts used for ZEPHYR MK2 LO 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.

Midsole

100%
Poly­urethane (PU)

Poly­urethane (PU) is a soft plastic that has very good cush­ioning prop­erties and is usually used in the midsole as a result. Through the use of PU, the soles become light­weight and func­tionally flexible.

Polyamide

Poly­amides are plastics that are synthesised and can be used to produce man-made fibres as a result. In addition to their toughness, poly­amides are known for their form stability, tear and abrasion resistance and waterproof qualities. Poly­amides are also elastic, very stretchy and high gloss.

Upper material

Approx. 90%
Suede leather

Suede leather comes from the flesh side of the hide. It has a looser fibre structure, a quality that creates a velvety surface and a light pile. Suede leather is partic­ularly durable and open-pored. Depending on the desired look, suede leather can remain untreated or be oiled or waxed.
