    Excellent boot, my second pair. Very impressive delivery time - eight days from placing the order to delivery in rural Saskatchewan, Canada. The boots are comfortable right out of the box and fit perfectly. The first pair lasted six years and are still good for work boots but are getting pretty beat up so I needed a new pair for daily wear from spring till the snow flies. The cream keeps them flexible in this dry climate, but I haven't had to worry about waterproofing. If ordering internationally, the shipping and import fees are an issue, but acceptable when amortized over the life of the boot. Highly recommended!

    Many thanks for the excellent service and advice you gave me Wednesday morning when I called and bought a pair of size 45 Grisport Crusader boots from your shop. I went straight to Arenig fawr for a walk. The boots were comfortable straight out of the box and afforded excellent grip and protection for a rapid ascent to the summit and down again. I had no issues with foot movement and superb toe protection once I got the lacing right, which was easy. I would recommend these boots to anyone who wants to go over rough rocky terrain or boggy ground on a good hike. The value for money of these boots is excellent.

    Arrived on time and they are great and I love them.

Introducing the Grisport Crusader boot, which is part of Grisport’s Backpacking Range. The Crusader boot is one of our best selling walking boots, offering quality, comfort and style straight from the box. All Grisport boots have been designed using the five layer sole unit, which guarantees that very little ‘breaking-in’ is needed. This boot will not disappoint!


Designed with all the necessary features required of a backpacking boot, including top performance  waterproof and breathable membranes. (ie A ‘Sympatex’ lining).


Top quality Italian leather and a Vibram sole unit has been used, making it a rigid boot that is just perfect for tackling those hills and steep slopes. In addition, the Vibram trekking sole unit offers grip, traction and stability.


This boot is suitable for a range of activities, including backpacking, mountaineering, shooting, dog walking and rough outdoor work tasks.


Pros: It’s comfortable straight from the box
Cons: It’s a fairly heavy boot, weighing 1745g
Buy if: looking for a boot that offers heel and ankle support and has been designed for rugged terrain

Key Features of the Grisport Crusader boot:

Upper material: Italian leather
Inner material: Cordura fabric 
Membrane: Sympatex waterproof and breathable membrane
Tongue design: Bellowed tongue with softer leather for more comfort
Sole unit: Vibram trekking sole unit
Sole design: Unique 5 layer sole unit

Reasons why the Grisport Crusader boot is perfect for backpacking

Although this boot is comfortable straight from the box, the Crusader has been designed specifically for hillwalking, mountaineering and hiking. To prevent blisters and sore feet, some ‘breaking-in’ is necessary, to soften the leather on the boot and to ‘break in’ the sole unit. There are many reasons why this boot is just perfect for backpacking, including:


- Rigid design
- Heel-lock system for heel support
- High leg design, offering plenty of ankle support
- Front toe protector

The Grisport Crusader boots have been specifically designed for comfort and support. With a unique support system on the heel of the boot, which locks your ankle into place and a five layer sole unit, you are sure to get to your destination in comfort.


Why do I recommend the Grisport Crusader boots?

This boot is fully waterproof and breathable using a Sympatex membrane. This membrane is a performance barrier specifically designed to draw sweat away from foot and out of your boot and to prevent water out. Sympatex membrane is: 


– 100% waterproof
– Optimal breathable
– 100% windproof 


As a result, with the Grisport Crusader boots your feet will remain dry, cool and comfortable all day!


If you have found that the inner liner of your boots start to tear or wear, then you need a boot that has been lined with Cordura performance fabric. Cordura is known for its durability and resistance to abrasions. The Grisport Crusader is fully lined with Cordura fabric!


Do you suffer with aches on your heel or suffer with tendonitis?

Grisport have spent considerable amount of time and money on perfecting an anti-tendonitis relief system. This system will prevent tendon fatigue by giving more movement at the ankle.


Have you also found that the sole unit is the first thing to give up? Does the tread wear down quickly, do you find yourself slipping on wet ground? Then you need a boot with Vibram sole unit. The Grisport Crusader has a unique Vibram sole unit specifically designed for durability and to give extra grip.
