I recently purchased the Crispi Nevada boots for an over the counter tag elk hunt in Colorado. As great as the boots felt when I tried them on, I did not have a lot of time to break them in and was a little worried taking them on the hunt. We packed three miles in to a remote cabin and then hunted the surrounding national forest land each day.
The boots were immediately comfortable and supportive without any ill-fitting spots, even with a heavy pack. On day four we spotted a huge bull three valleys away above treeline. We hiked about eight miles, mostly in the dark, the following morning and connected with this bull at 12,000 feet in a blizzard. Overall, I hiked more than 60 miles and shot this bull ten miles from the nearest road. Throughout the hunt my feet were always warm, dry and comfortable.
Without these boots I would not have been able to cover so much ground and share tagging a monster public land bull with my Dad and son. Thank you for a fantastic boot for the mountain hunter!
