I was expecting better from Zamberlan

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

I have worn many different mountain hunting boots including other top brands, and my Italian made Zamberlan's are by far the best. Wanting to go with a lighter and quicker style hunting boot I figured I'd give these Zam Crossers a try. For the (sale) price they are adequate, but I wouldn't pay full price. They are uncomfortable on the high ankle and also have a pressure point on the top of my foot when I step forward on the boot. They've gotten more comfortable as I've worn them ,and I've figured out precisely how l need to lace the finicky things. Good support, light and waterproof though. Bottom line: I'm not returning them, but I wouldn't buy them again, and the fact these models are made in China instead of Italy might have a lot to do with the unexpected drop in quality.

Bomber support and comfort

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 44
  • Height: 5'6"
  • Weight: 176lbs

These boots provide the best balance of confort and support I've experienced. They have solid waterproof and breathability performance. By far the best feature is the ankle support. I have used these in South West Tasmania (Australia) in the harsh wilderness of the Western Arthurs Ranges. I've done many other hikes and backpacking trips with them, including in the snow. Recently I hammered them on a 70km ultra trail walk. Not a single blister or any foot pain. I attribute the support to the well built heel and the way it grips your foot, not allowing your foot to ride back and forth. they handle large pack weight well. They would get 5 stars if they had more grip on steep scrambles though.

Comfortable right out of the box

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

These were super comfy right out of the box. I love they are vegan, sturdy, and lightweight. They do run small, so make sure you size up. I went up a whole size to allow for enough room in the toe box so my big toe wouldn't jam into the end of the shoe on descends. Really happy with these so far.

Most comfortable 'light hiker' ever made

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I was a bit worried that this boot was going to be narrow, but it turns out that upon first fit it feels tight, after an hour or so it feels great.

I've been using these boots for about 7 or 8 months and they offer a unique combination of being light weight yet stiff enough to provide support. By using kevlar and gore tex they managed to make a boot that is NOT cut low to save weight but rather has a more traditional ankle cut of heavier boots, but the high tech materials shave the weight. I've logged many multi-mile days, back to back, wearing these boots and they remain supportive and comfortable all day long.

The sole is fairly thin compared to many other boots, another bow to weigh saving. The sole still absorbs the shock, yet is flexible enough to give you great ground feel and a good stable feeling. The sole also offers great grip on all sorts of ground surfaces while hiking and walking. Being somewhat thin, I wonder how long it will last before it wears out? That is an unknown, but so far they are holding up very well and I wear them when hiking and often as a casual/around town boot.

This is not a winter boot, don't count on it to keep your feet warm for hours in the snow. Its not designed for that and it won't do it. It will keep your feet dry in the snow, but during this past brutal winter, if I was out and not active enough, I wore more suitable insulated boots. Consider these 3 season boots, which is what they were designed as.

Lousy Sizing major dissapointment

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Ordered 44EU expecting US 11's imagine my surprise when the manufacturer's packaging states that 44 EU equals 9.5 US! I have lost all confidence in this product as far as sizing goes, and to add insult to injury, the product is made in China, not Italy. Bad sizing on what many have rated an excellent boot just leaves me barefoot and peeved. Backcounty's excellent return policy notwithstanding, I will never order this boot online again.

You have your sizing mixed up. A US size 11 equates to an EU 45. US size 10 is considered an EU 44, generally being slightly tighter than a US 10 feeling more like a 9.75. This goes for all European boots.

Accurate sizing charts can be found on google, the zamberlan website, and here on backcountry.

Narrow but light

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Bought these for backpacking after finding that trail running shoes do not have enough ankle support for me

I have wide feet and found that the front was tight. After I loosened that laces up there they fit fine. Did 16 miles with a 30# pack and was happy!

small-narrow boot!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I thought I was getting a mans boot. I ordered a 42.5 which should have been a 9.5 US. Instead I got a 8.5US. I could not get my size 9.5E big toe in these. Also didn't like the construction very much, didn't look as durable as I had hoped. The tongue was made of wide mesh looks like sticks and debris could go right through. It was light; when I tossed it back in the box and sent it back to Backcountry.Oh well! Next boot.

As with the above commenter, you do not have you're US to EU sizing conversion correct.

A US size 9.5 is a 43.5 or even possibly a 44 in European sizes. European standard size 42.5 is in fact universally a US 8.5. Sizing charts can be found on google, company websites, and right here on backcountry.

Posting so that others don't have this issue. Happy boot searching.

Zamberlan Steps Out in Style

  • 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.
