@jagermeister and @Jackalope, how was the sizing on your Crispis? Really liking the construction of those boots.
I ordered 12’s, which is the size I wear all of my boots these days. I will say at first I was worried because they felt a little tight. But I have the normal amount of toe room. I think the tight feeling is more due to the ankle support system and just the fact that they are constructed better than most boots. The more I wear them the better they feel. To me there’s nothing worse than buying a pair of boots that feel great in the store, then 3 months later they feel “wollered out” and sloppy after they softened up. In short, I’d say they are true to size. If you’re a tweener, go up a half size. I just ordered another pair the other day and again went with a size 12. I’ll let you know if there’s any issue.

I have 4 pairs of Russell Moccasin boots size 13 that don't fit anymore, 2 pairs of Sheep hunters, Imperials, and Zephyrs, nice booths, lot of life left in them, but they're just too small if anyones interested.

That tread has me sold. Good hill gripping tread.
Awesome tread pattern. And despite these being a lower boot, more like hiking boot height, the amount of ankle support is extraordinary. They would be great for the hills of SE Ohio. These will likely see more work than play, but if I was getting them as a “hunting boot” I’d probably opt for the taller version... for a bit more freeboard when crossing streams and wet areas. These are the little brother to the Idaho GTXs. Fit is absolutely perfect so far. True to size pair of 12’s.

Someone send @jagermeister a commission check. No place to try these on within 2 hours, so I'll roll the dice and risk the shipping on a return. I'm ready to take the next leap in boot after wearing out 2 $200 pairs in the last 5 years.

Who wants an "unboxing" video 😅

There is absolutely no instance where the saying “get what you pay for” rings more true than when buying boots. I will be dumbfounded if you don’t fall in love with them.

But don’t thank me. Thank @Jackalope. I never heard of Crispi boots until he mentioned them before his trip out west for elk. I then did a little research and decided they were worth taking a chance on. Very happy that I did. The price certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. But so far they really seem like they’ll stand the rest of time.

The insulated Nevada looks like a nice boot. Haven't been steered wrong around here yet. From bosch wiper blades to tulster holsters lol. I hear there's a check coming so I know where 425$ of it is going lol.
Yup, I also got the Bosch wiper blades after reading a post on here last year. The field tests on here are spot on...people will tell you what is good and what is trash.👍
