    Great to look at and even better to wear.

    Handmade in Italy, Zamberlan's Latemar NW Men's Backpacking Boot is so nice to look at that it's almost worth buying it just to put it on a shelf in your living room. If you did that, though, you'd be missing out on serious comfort and performance on the trail. The Latemar's designed for heavy-duty backpacking, with a waxed Hydrobloc full-grain leather upper that repels dirt and water, along with a soft calf leather lining that protects your foot and helps move moisture away from your skin.

    Its smooth, welted construction provides serious durability, and the ZBPK Performing Fit last fits your foot like a glove, so you can cover serious ground without blisters or unnecessary discomfort. Leather boots do take some time to conform to your feet, but once they do they'll feel like a million bucks, with the additional comfort and protection of a TPU insole and PU footbed to cushion your feet from the beating that rough ground can deliver. No matter how rocky and slick it gets, the multi-directional self-cleaning lugs of the Vibram NorTrak outsole will keep you locked in, so you can focus on the scenery without worrying that each step might send you on to your butt.

    Highly recommend for backpack/off-trail

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    These boots, out of the box look brilliant. Absolutely beautiful Tuscany leather, extremely thick and durable with a reliable coat of Zamberlan Hydro bloc applied. This boot is ready to go wherever you'll take it. The boot itself is extremely stiff in my opinion, but the leather soon begins to work into a science of motion with your foot as it molds to the way you walk and the shape of your feet. This boot gives about a solid inch of extra height and has a massive Vibram outsole that dominates mountain terrain. I do a lot of backpacking in the Rio Grande wilderness of Colorado and spend miles off trail in the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico searching for antlers, and I can't wait to bust these bad boys out up there. Meanwhile I've still been trying to break them in more before taking them on any major hikes. I know they'll perform wonderfully though. As far as sizing goes, I ordered a 9 and a 9.5 and wound up going with the 9, which is roughly my true shoe size. Kudos to backcountry also for the easy return on the 9.5s. Beat 'em up as much as you need to because you can send them back to Zamberlan to have them re-soled. Absolutely pure craftsmanship, two thumbs up Zamberlan!

    Highly recommend for backpack/off-trail

    Great boot

    • Size Bought: 9

    Latemar is a comfortable, and sturdy boot. Unfortunately, and unlike what Backcountry states on their website, they run approximately 1/2 size small. I usually wear a size 9. Had to move up to a 9.5.

    Zamberlan Latemar NW Backpacking Boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10

    Well constructed and sturdy. My other boots are size 10.5. These are 10 and fit well, thus in my experience they run a bit large. It took me ~30 miles of hiking to break them in. After break-in I did not add any water proofing before taking them hunting in wet conditions. The leather quickly became saturated inside and out taking several days to dry. Thus, in my experience the factory waterproofing is insufficient. (Happily, I had my 10 year old Lowa's as back up that I waterproofed with Snow Seal beeswax before the trip. They stayed dry.). I would waterproof the Zamberlans before going into potentially wet conditions. Otherwise, very good boot.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 44.5

    After returning the Tofanes I ordered and getting these I feel that I got a much better boot for my needs. these boots run true to size if you go buy the size chart. I wear a 10 d and the 44.5 fits perfect. Because i live in a warmer climate I have no need for a goretex lined boot. These are very nice in warmer weather. Also I carry a mystery ranch crew cab with 35-50 lbs and they are the best supporting boots I've found. Get em they are Awesome!!

    Italian Craftsmanship At Its Finest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Euro 46

    Extremely well made and comfortable boot. Very thick one piece leather upper (Nice!), leather lining, thick PU midsole, and Vibram sole. What I like about the boot is the heel fits comfortably snug and has a wide toe box. This is a high volume fit, so I would not wear anything lighter than mid-weight hiking socks. I normally wear a US 12, and the Euro 46 fits me perfectly. Shoe length fit: I would order a half-size down on this boot. There is plenty of width in the toe area. My only complaint is Zamberlan put a thin leather insole in the boots. Maybe will offer Zamberlan brand replacement insoles? Anyway, I can't say enough praise about these boots regarding fit, feel, and quality. In comparison, I also own Zamberlan's Vioz Plus GT RR boots. These boots are a made 3mm wider and have gore-tex lining. I like the fit and feel of the Latemar Boots better, especially the calf skin lining for better breathibility and just overall comfort.

    Thank you for the review. I also have the Zamberlan Vioz Plus GT RR and absolutely love them. The wide toe box done it for me. Hard to imagine even better made boots but these possibly are. I bought my Vioz boots online after reading a ton of reviews that all said the forefoot was wide. Of course at the the price backcountry had them on for, I had to take a chance and I'm damn glad I did.
