The ZEPHYR MK2 GTX LO represents the next stage in the evolution of this legendary mission shoe. Its combination of agility, lightness and stability makes it ideal for use in military or police special units or by regular personnel.

The upper is made from a combination of water-repellent, tear-resistant suede and abrasion-resistant, breathable CORDURA® material. The waterproof, highly breathable GORE-TEX Extended Comfort footwear laminate is ideal for use in moderate or relatively wet envir­onments. The dual-layer PU midsole with a MONOWRAP® frame surrounds and supports the foot like an exoskeleton.

The ZEPHYR MK2 GTX LO 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.

    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.

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.

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.
