February 20, 2024 •iSportsman Staff
Italian-made shoes and fashion have been the gold standard for decades, and finally that same great craftsmanship has been introduced to outdoor gear and apparel. The Crispi boot legacy was founded in 1975 in Venato Italy by Allesandro Maroclin, and by 2013 outdoor enthusiasts in over 50 countries were able to access these expertly made accessories. If you are in the market for a new hunting boot brand, the Crispi boot design offers multiple boot lines for every outdoor activity, we’ve rounded up the best for you:
Taking advantage of the outdoors is a 24/7 lifestyle, so having a versatile pair of shoes for every occasion can ensure you’re prepared for whatever the day has in store for you. The Monaco GTX Crispi boot is a lightweight boot, weighing in at 1.1 lbs, but still manages to pack a heavy punch.
With triple-stitched polyurethane, coated leather rand, and an upper constructed from water repellent nubuck leather the Monaco GTX offers long-lasting construction for year-after-year wear and tear. Beyond this, the Monaco GTX boot is also great for all-day comfort with Gore-Tex Performance Comfort lining, and Vibram Sole Super-Grip midsoles. Available in three colors, the Monaco GTX has an MSRP of $255.00 and you can buy them directly from the Crispi boot U.S. distribution website.
The Crispi boot Shimek GTX was designed for mobile midwest whitetail and upland bird hunting but is a great boot for hunters across North America. Insulated with 400 grams of Gore insulation, and water repellent thanks to the waxed nubuck leather upper, the Shimek GTX keeps you on your toes for early morning treks after upland game.
These hunting boots have an 8” height, full rubber rand, and weigh in at 1.5lbs per boot. The quality construction of the Shimek GTX also covers comfort needs with the Crispi Megagrip sole by Virbram, and the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort lining. Keep yourself on your toes and ready for anything with the Shimek GTX, with an MSRP of $415 you can buy yours here.
What makes a good mountain hunting boot great? Flexibility. And the Birksdal GTX Crispi boot offers just that, with a flex rating of four, an asymmetrical lacing system for a more anatomical fit, and a stretch nylon built on tongue—these boots for hunters will get you to the summit!
The Birksdal GTX also has the added comfort of the Crispi ABSS system—that’s: Ankle Bone Support System—for added protection to the entire ankle area by allowing the footwear to contour gently around your ankle. The Crispi ABSS system found in the Birksdal GTX boot helps limit fatigue on lower joints, and offers outstanding sprain protection even on the roughest terrain. The Birksdal GTX is also 100% waterproof thanks to the Gore-Tex full surround lining, and an upper constructed of water-repellant nubuck leather. The Birksdal GTX has an MSRP of $435.00 and you can buy them here.
