The Weeks of Boots - Aku and Lowa, NOV 8th - 14th
For the final of the Weeks of Boots, we highlight two solid brands from Italy and Germany. During this week, you'll find Aku (FRI 12th, 14-20) and Lowa (SAT 13th 10-16) product representatives in our shop and if you like Finnish "pullakahvit", it's on the house in Sotima during that day.
Among major league footwear manufacturers in Europe, Aku isn't perhaps the most known out there, but certainly one of the hardest hitters. It's a family business that was originally founded in the '70s and has such an approach to quality, that it might as well be German or Swiss.
With a pair of these boots on, your feet and conscience are as clear as the blue sky, promise! The Danish, British, and Swiss armed forces buy Aku boots, and they don't accept poor pieces of gear. (Well maybe the Brits sometimes do.)
During Varusteleka's fifth and final Week of Boots, the buyer of any pair of Aku footwear (Selvatica Tactical, Selvatica Tactical Mid, or Pilgrim) gets a package of Aku Akvabloc and a pair of Aku Trekking Low socks free of charge. The offer is valid from NOV 8th to NOV 14th. Note that the availability of certain sock sizes may be unpredictable.
Lowa is a household name in shoemaking. With over 90 years of experience, they do know what's what. Many military and law enforcement instances place their trust in Lowa, not forgetting countless hikers and outdoors people. Lowa tends to keep a lower profile than many other brands but their products reach far and wide.
During Varusteleka's fifth and final Week of Boots, the buyer of any pair of Lowa footwear (Z-8N Särmä TST M19 or Z-11S) gets a Lowa shoe care kit free of charge. The offer is valid from NOV 8th to NOV 14th.
The Care for Your Shoes and Boots Explained
Proper shoe care is vitally necessary to prolong the service life of your boots or shoes. This article covers how to take care of footwear sold by us, and generally army and outdoor boots. Fancy dancing shoes and fashion items are not included, to keep it as simple and short as possible.
Lowa Z-8N GTX - Särmä TST M19 Combat Boots
As a joint effort of Lowa and Varusteleka, we're proud to present the Z-8N / M19 Combat Boots! We took the stock model of the Lowa boot and not only ordered a LOT of them but had some tiny alterations made, thus is born the "M19 Combat Boot". This model is available only from Varusteleka!
Lowa Water Stop Pro, 300 ml
Spray-on treatment for your GTX footwear. Creates water, dirt, and oil-repellent layer while allowing the leather to breathe. Also works with fabrics.
Lowa shoe laces
Lowa does indeed make superior boots and they didn't cheap out on the laces, either. The length selection is also a true wonder to behold - just check your existing lace lengths and pick.
Lowa Z-11S GTX
A proper hunting and hiking boot from Lowa. The waterproof membrane keeps your feet from getting wet and the tall shaft keeps nature out.
Lowa Active Creme, 75 ml
Lowa Active Creme is the ideal colorless intensive wax care for boots and shoes. It keeps the leather supple over the long term and prevents drying out and brittleness when used regularly. In combination with Lowa Water Stop Pro, this is the perfect protection for your Lowa shoes.
AKU Pilgrim GTX Combat FG M
The Aku Pilgrim GTX Combat FG M is a multi-purpose boot with outstanding support, breathability, and impact absorption. Thanks to these features, the Pilgrim GTX Combat FG M performs well in prolonged use whether you call it hiking, trekking, or marching.
AKU Selvatica Tactical Mid GTX
Footwear for multi-terrain activity, perfect for light hunting and hiking. Super lightweight, breathable and dynamic support in the shoe upper and sole, the former bearing ribs that are pre-treated in PU, which eliminates stitching.
AKU Selvatica Tactical GTX
Footwear designed for the urgent intervention forces and for multi-terrain activities, perfect for moving quickly in total comfort. Super lightweight, breathable and dynamic support in the shoe upper and sole, the former bearing ribs that are pre-treated in PU protection, which eliminates stitching.
Lowa Shoe Brush
It's good to have several shoe brushes to avoid staining your desert boots with black polish residue. Here's one option, which works with Lowa footwear and obviously everything else as well. This is a single batch, unlikely to be restocked!
