Designed for light military use on moderate terrain, the Lowa Recon GTX Boot in black is a waterproof boot that is light and flexible for easier walking and running.
With a reliable Gore-Tex membrane for dry feet in wet conditions, it’s a high-quality all-rounder with an all leather base to comply with uniform requirements.
These boots are made to provide support and stability for both walking and running.
A Vibram Vialta sole offers plenty of grip for most surfaces and absorbs the shock of each step to help reduce fatigue. The smart design includes an Achilles leather flex panel for enhanced comfort.
Breathable waterproofing for confidently dry feet
A water-repellent, durable leather and Cordura upper and waterproof Gore-Tex membrane makes it suitable for wearing in wet conditions.
Both the upper and membrane are also fully breathable, and the lining is made with hardwearing Cambrelle, which actively wicks moisture away from the foot to reduce the build-up of perspiration even in hot or very active conditions.
A combination of eyelets and open hooks allows for plenty of secure adjustment of the laces to get a supportive fit, whilst also ensuring that it’s easy to get them on and off.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I’ve come from issued magnum boots and as soon as I tried these on they were perfect.
Minimal break in but feel great quality, lightweight and supportive.
The soles are a touch stiffer than the magnums but comfier for walking in and don’t hugely affect driving.
Goretex lining isn’t too sweaty if you use merino socks.
I tried combat gtx but they were too large stiff and cumbersome for response duties in my opinion though they felt bullet proof.
These are an ideal compromise and feel like they will last longer than the 12 months I get out of the magnums
Great service from military kit and good price.
I’ve had my fair share of boots over the years however these ones are the first that I’ve not had to wear in, really comfortable however had to go up slightly as they are slightly narrower than previous boots
What can I say, quality, great service
I have been wearing the same set of Danner Acadias every day since 2006 having had them resoled multiple times and it was time for a new set.
A work colleague recommended these and they are just as comfortable as the Danners and I’m very pleased. The leather is firm and supportive but didn’t take an age to wear in, probably only 3 or 4 days.
Worth noting is the size is generous so where I had a 9.5 in the Danners with thick work socks and my own insoles I’ve had to go half a size down in the Lowa to a size 9. Good all round boot and next day delivery with Military Kit.
Super fast delivery. Boots are best out there on the market. No need to break-in. 10/10.
Free delivery and cheapest site I could find these particular boots on. Delivery was very fast also.
Will buy from this site again.
Speedy delivery service, item as expected
these boots do exactly what they say on the lid,very comfortable, waterproof, very light & no need to break them in.All I needed a pair of boots for is walking the dog & these are more than suitable 5/5
Excellent service. Arrived quickly no hassle. The boots are top quality. No wearing in required. Very comfy. I had Altbergs before these and they lasted 5 years of daily abuse. These feel much more hard wearing without sacrificing comfort. Highly recommend these to anyone
These boots fit really well, lightweight for long distance walking, great support
