Description

Designed by a family of Italians who spend their summers hiking in the Dolomites. ... Yeah, we can tell.

There's no room for flimsy materials or far-flung outsourcing factories in Zamberlan's mentality. No, this Italian company prides itself on designing and hand-crafting each boot it makes in its own shop right in Italy. So you can depend on boots like the Men's Trekker RR Boot to stand up to season after season of hiking and trekking. Old-school leather workmanship meets new technology like Vibram outsoles to create a boot that offers the best of the classic and the modern.
  • Hydrobloc waxed leather uppers repel the elements and stand up to all the abuse the rocky trail can throw at them
  • Vibram Anansi outsole provides excellent shock absorption and ample support for a moderately heavy pack
  • Anatomic footbeds, Zamberlan Air System padding, and Cambrelle moisture-wicking lining keep your foot supported and comfy
  • Zamberlan Modular Flex insole lets the boot flex right where your toes need to bend with each step
  • Low-volume forefoot and higher-volume toe box hold your foot securely while allowing toes comfortable (and blister-free) wiggle-room
  • The boot's leather adapts more and more to the shape of your foot each time you wear it, so after a few long hikes, it will be an old friend of your foot's

Had I only known . . . !

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

Okay - I have wanted a pair of Zamberlans since I first learned of them in my 20s. I could tell the quality was top-notch, but the high-price always seemed "unjustifiable" to me on my tight budget.
Now I am in my 50s (and still super cost-conscious!) but the Backcountry.com sale price (and easy return process,), FINALLY justified the leap to try a pair.
OMG - had I only known! Just look (and feel) what I have been missing!
I am a professional designer of print, products, packaging, and furniture - and an artist. Rarely - so VERY rarely - do I not say, "Arg! if they had only (done this . . . ) it would be perfect!"
It's fair to say, I'm ridiculously-picky.
So, with that background, I am pleased to say these boots are "perfect! " The leather quality, the absolutely glove-like fit (yet with toe-wiggle room,) the design . . . I love these boots!
Despite all the new manufacturers, and textiles, designs, . . . this "old school" design still works best for me. I have worn through Vasques, Lowas, Obos, LaSportivas, Scarpas, Salomons, . . . ALL great boots . . . but I have a new favorite!
As for size (they don't make that easy - no US-EU conversion charts agree with one another,) here's my size reference:
44 = 9.5
44H ("half") = 10
The color is a deep, olive-green - almost black until you are in the sun. That mid-sole wedge that appears kinda blue - isn't. It's a darker-grey (maybe a hint of blue) - but closer to black (and the photo is too contrast-y.)
The leather is super thick - but the design of the shoe allows for good flex out-of-the-box.
The gusseted tongue and thick leather means this boot DOES NOT REQUIRE GoreTex!
As for weight - depending on what textile-mix you compare it too, this boot is NOT heavy in my opinion.
I'm digging them!

(cont'd) . . . no seams on this boot, and the circle (perf'd padding) around the ankle bone (ahhhh,) means no "hot spots" - like I have so often in other boots because of seam placement and stitching technique . . . and support "gimmicks" that justify cheaper materials.

Top Notch Craftsmanship

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my 2nd pair of Zamberlans and I honestly believe they are the best brand we sell in terms of boots. Maximum comfort, style, and durability. These are made in Italy and you can tell immediately when you put them on, even more so when they've been worn all day. I wanted to get this version because they are far better in terms of water resistance, as compared to the Nuvolao model. I wear USA size 11.0, bought EU 45.0, and they fit perfect. Give Zamberlan a try, you won't regret it.

Can you please compare the feet (especially width at toes) to these? Zamberlan Vioz Plus GT RR Boot - Men's

Hi Roger, the width is actually the same between those two.

Leather Boot

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Boots look to be well made. Very good fit, even though my right foot is a half size bigger. Maybe I should buy the next 1/2 size bigger so my right foot fits like my left foot. I could sell the extra odd pair to someone who has the same problem, but with opposite foot. The cuff fits without a gap when securely laced. The leather around the ankle was a bit stiff at first, but has broken in nicely with continuous jaunts in the neighborhood. The boots feel hard on asphalt, which is to be expected as I never change the footbed. With snow in the area, hiking through fields is no problem. I wear gaiters on this hikes.

I will update later this summer on the boots durability. I?m hard on boots while doing landscaping, and curious to how these hold up, as I?ve broken the toe box area on other boots, except for a pair of Rockys, but they didn?t have a great fit, not like these or previous boots like the Vasque Breeze GTX. I broke the Vasque mid season.

On sizing, I wear a 13, got the 12 in these.

Great Boot

These are truly an outstanding boot, I got these as a replacement for a pair of Vasque's that I'd worn for about 15 years. I've worn these for a couple years now in the Pacific Northwest. I've slogged through many nasty, wet days in these (think "constant downpour", and my feet stayed dry except for perspiration. The boots work great on steep and rugged terrain, both up- and down-hill. Traction is great. I pronate severely, and these have provided excellent foot support even on extended, severe bushwhacking outings. I applied a waterproofing treatment before the first use, and have kept them maintained with waterproofing treatment as needed, since that's the only way to assure long life for the leather portion (in my opinion). I always wear a high quality wool sock, regardless of the season I went out of my way to find a non-Gore Tex boot, because my feet run hot. On an occasion when I had to ford a small stream the boots dried (on my feet) within about 15-20 minutes, or they at least felt dry. A couple hours later, back at the car, my feet and socks were no more damp than they were after any other day of summer hiking. These are an awesome three season boot, remember that people kept their feet dry in leather boots long before Gore Tex was invented. You just have to take care of your gear.

Size 9.5M weighs 3 lbs 4 oz a pair-- a bit heavier than advertised. I weighed each one on a postal scale.

Top notch boot

This is a very high quality boot. The construction is impressive. The leather is highest quality. The best thing is no goretex. My feet sweat a lot on hikes, and I wanted an all leather boot that breathes. The leather is waterproof. The boot feels like it is made for my for foot. I haven't done extensive hiking in it so far, so no long term data available, but the boots are breaking in nicely. The flex is more of a hiker than backpacking boot, which is what I wanted. I plan to use the boots for long day hikes with a light pack.

Sizing/Fit: I normally wear size 11 and went with 10.5 (EU 45) in this boot, so it runs a little large in my opinion. The toe box is roomy.

Update 9/13/11: Have done quite a bit of hiking with the boot, including an overnight with about 30 lb pack. The boots are perfect. No blisters, very comfortable, good support. Highly recommended.

not to play devil's advocate here, but had you actually gotten anywhere near water, rain, dew or anything else prior to this post? If so, mine are flawed and need replace/repair. I know Zamberlan sells the treatment cream, but I was under the impression they came pre-treated. Anyway...please let me know. And to readers...they are GREAT boots and VERY well made...just very different (in good and bad ways) than Goretex. First snow in MO today and I had wet feet...'less than an inch of snow.

I've used them in snow, hiked across wet bogs, through streams without any leakage. Moisture just beads up and rolls off.

For extended hiking in wet terrain, goretex would probably be better, although I have seen leakage in goretex footware. For my area and usage, these are great, and work for me. Quality leather non-goretex boots like these and Lowas will be almost 100% waterproof if you take care of them and use waterproofing once a year.

FYI, this isn't a gore-tex boot, but it is full grain leather and gusseted to the top of the tongue, so you will get some natural water resistance with this boot, but it's far from water proof. Agreed, they are GREAT and VERY well made, but if you are looking for a waterproof hiker, I would go with one of Zamberlan's gore-tex models.
