Thank you for your feedback.
Well made the leather uppers and Vibram sole are still in good shape and they don't leak.
They seem to fit well and are comfortable, though I have yet to test on a long walk.
My boots have been comfortable from day 1, no breaking-in period, just the way they should be.

Product Description

Product Description

The Grisport Crusader men's walking boot is possibly the finest boot that Grisport have ever made. They have used premium grade leathers on the collar and upper and have formed these on a tough and durable Vibram sole. The lining is 'Sympa-Tex', guaranteeing waterproofing and breathability. Crusaders are made in Italy and offer the kind of quality you can only normally find on boots costing over £200. These are seriously good boots for the price.

Manufacturer's Description

Grisport made its first pair of walking boots in 1977. By the turn of the millennium, this production had grown to well in excess of 2 million pairs per year, making Grisport one of the five biggest manufacturers of outdoor footwear in Europe. Grisport's state-of-the-art Italian factory currently supplies Grisport products to more than 50 Countries around the world.

Simply put... these boots are the best footwear I have ever owned, without even a hint of exaggeration!

I thoroughly researched serious walking / hiking boots between £50 - £150, paying particular attention to all user reviews available on Amazon and across the web. The usual names cropped up with some very respectable offerings from Brasher, Berghaus, North Face and Hi-Tec. While many of the choices out there had a high number of pros, they also without exception had a number of cons; there seemed to be few walking / hiking boots available with all the features and functionality required in one neat product. The fully featured boots out there such as Scarpa, Meindl and Mammut are mostly £150+, while it seems that there is an inproportionate gulf between quality boots and the high street consumer tat peddled around the £100 mark, with few options between.

Anyway I looked into Grisport. They are an Italian company which manufactures all of its' products within Europe, including components and materials. They've been manufacturing some of the world's most comfortable and durable boots since 1977. Almost all the aforementioned brands are manufactured in China or similar, having been designed elsewhere (much like Apple lol). The Crusader Boots have beautiful, premium quality Italian leather uppers, patented waterproofed linings which work flawlessly and a vibram sole which resists even the toughest ground. My boots have been comfortable from day 1, no breaking-in period, just the way they should be. I appreciate the design which has been invested in these boots; almost every design cue follows a practical reason so that the form follows function and not vice-versa. They are flawlessly engineered.

You will not buy a better pair of walking / hiking boots than these for less than £150... period. Buy them you won't regret it :)

I have had these boots for a couple of months now and they are perfect in every way. They have nice high ankle support, a high water-proofing line and sticky Vibram soles. They were comfortable from the off and are surprising light weight for their size. There isn't much else to say really other than they are worth the money and I will see if they stand the test of time.

I have had these Grisport Crusader walking boots for nearly a year and use them regularly for walking the dog in lowland conditions.

They are comfortable and very well made and unlike my previous Brasher boots which had very thin leather, have not cracked along the uppers where they bend when walking.

Water-proofing has been effective and I have not had blisters from them.

Italians are renowned for quality leather goods and I think these boots are a premium product at a competitive price.

I would buy another pair when these (eventually) need replacing.

Update December 2013 - 18 Months On.

Still rating as excellent. Comfortable, particularly after being worn a few times. Well made the leather uppers and Vibram sole are still in good shape and they don't leak. Unlike previous Brashers, they haven't split on the uppers where the foot flexes. All in all, a great boot. The Italians do know about leather & footwear. I would definitely buy again.

Update July 2014 - 2 Years on. Boots still good. No splits and still comfortable and waterproof. Vibram sole has worn a bit but to be expected.

i have had these boots for a few months now and cant think of a single fault. comfortable straight out the box, zero breaking in required. they have a very grippy sole and offer excellent ankle support. i have worn them in deep snow for hours and my feet remained dry and warm. these boots are brilliant value for money mine cost £70 from javari.
i recommend anyone looking for walking boots to seriously consider these.

I bought the Crusaders at the same time as the Edge boots and love both of them! The Crusaders though have been getting worn more as the snow continues to fall.... I walk my dog up a hill, a dirt track road that rarely gets cleared of the snow and while these boots aren'y totally slip proof, the Vibram sole is pretty darn good! It's also a little meatier than the Edge sole and has so far been excellent up that hill.

Walking through the snow would normally have my feet wet, but these boots have kept my feet totally dry and warm. They were comfortable straight out of the box, no breaking in for me which is a bonus as I have broad feet. These boots are wide and are still very comfortable with two pairs of socks, which I always wear when I walk. The boots support your ankle, being higher than the Edge and I had a little adjustment in getting used to that but I have to say that out in the snow, up that hill, they come into their own and that extra support does its job well. You feel totally supported in these boots and confident that they'll keep you dry, warm and protected.

The lacing system is excellent and keep your feet in the boots without movement. Make sure your socks are on properly as you'll have to undo the boots to fix them. The tongue has a fold system that keeps water and snow out and is locked under the laces. The Crusaders are lightweight considering the support they give and while you know you're wearing them, that also becomes a nice familiarity in this snow.

The sales page here says they are mens and yet in my basket they said womens (perhaps because of the smaller sizer?) The box says neither as they are truly unisex boots and like the lighter Edge, worth every single penny. I wear them all the time.
