Colm M.wrote a review of Zamberlan SH Crosser Plus GTX RR Hiking Boot - Men's on September 30, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I've been wearing Zamberlan for years and have always been impressed. I have a pair of their old style hiking boots- leather uppers, vibram soles, and the fantastic cambrelle lining- and they are about 8 years old and still going strong. The SH Crosser GTX is a departure for Zamberlan stylistically, and I have not put the boots through their paces for long, but so far they are performing well in Atlantic conditions- hiking across rocky terrain and then down onto the salt water beach for four miles-- they are comfortable, light, and yet they keep the rocks away from your toes. Funky red/ pink color was a bit odd at first but now I think they're a gas. These boots won the Editors Choice Award from Backpacker Magazine for 2013, so they will likely be around for awhile. Ordered via Amazon from Backcountry and the service was as good as ordering directly. Update: 3 months of use and these boots show no sign of wear. And I am very hard on footwear.
