Are they definatly gortex Lowas then as I thought the Lowa mountain boot always had a vibram soleRaz said:Got them today.
Damn nice boots, the soles are older and not vibram, but for £35 an absolute bargin. I think they are all gone now though!
Raz said:Well, the guy said they were old.
Visably the soles are different from any pictures I've seen on the internet. No Vibram logo (no lowa one either), and they don't feel like vibram.
Could be wrong though, who knows!
Anyone else got a pair?
That explains it as I know Meindel make them as well, which sole unit is it on the ebay ones for interest as I think I've a pair of them the same bought for next to nothing a few years back?steve a said:Just got back from the local army surplus shop where they are selling the very same boots for £45-£60.
Same soles as the guy on e-bay and no Lowa markings.
Shop owner says they are genuine Lowa, are gortex lined but are German military issue, he says they can come with three types of soles, vibram,meindel, or german army spec .He also gets his gear from field textiles!.
N.B. He's also got stainless steel none teflon coated crusader mugs for £5
