Product Description

15689-1104DBM
The nine-inch 1104 Storm Pro GTX RR is engineered to be an ultra-lightweight and supportive backcountry bowhunting boot. Built from the ground-up to be as light as possible, yet providing the kind of support and performance you would expect from a Zamberlan boot, the Storm Pro keeps you light (and dry!) on your feet.

Features:
  • Italian Hydrobloc® split-grain leather and extremely tough Cordura comprise the uppers and serve to substantially reduce weight without compromising protection
  • The Exclusive Zamberlan Vibram® StarLite outsoles leverage a dual-density EVA insole (one lower-density for cushion and one higher-density for support) and Vibram rubber outsole. These outsoles feature Zamberlan's famous StarTrek treads for superior grip, solid downhill braking, and wide lugs which are easily cleaned with a stick or finger
  • A polypropylene midsole is combined with a forward rocker to help propel you forward as you climb up the mountain
  • The purposefully designed rubber rand offers added protection against rocks and debris while balancing weight impact
  • Gore-Tex® Performance Comfort membranes provide the utmost waterproof protection and breathability and are guaranteed for the life of the boot
  • The ZBPK Performance Fit last is Zamberlan's most famous fit and features a pronounced heel lock, an anatomical over foot wrap, and a roomy toe box
  • ​​Resolable

Tried Crispi, Hanwag, Zamberlan's, etc, these were my top pick...!
2021 Injured my leg/ankle area hiking while wearing low cut trail shoes. My old 9" high German Meindl's gave out after decades of abuse...... (great boots), so was looking for a high quality sturdy pair that had great ankle security again.

The Italian Crispi's, Hanwags and these Zamberlan's all had great reviews, so I shopped around and tried several different models in all 3 brands, plus compared them to the Danners and everything else the local stores in Colorado had, which was extensive to say the least.

I wear a US Mens 10, normal width, in normal shoes, but in hiking boots and understanding you need a finger width in front of your toes in Hiking boots etc, especially for steep decents, I found I needed a EU44 which translates into a Mens 10.5 in the Crispi (Colorado GTX) and also in the Hanwag (Alverstone II GTX). Strangely, the Zamberlan box states EU 44 = US 9.5, but this simply is not true. Zamberlan's EU 44 is = to a US 10.5 just like the Crispi and the Hanwag. In fact, I pulled the liner out of each boot and laid them side by side and also put my foot on them to see the exact layout of the foot-bed when outside the boot (try it and you'll be able to visualize the bootmakers bottom print mold). All 3 are very similar with the Zamberlan being a tiny bit 1/8" approx longer and a little wider than the Hanwag, the Crispi being the smallest.

The Crispi, as far as foot volume around the TOP of the foot has the most, but it is tighter than the Zamberlan at the foot width. The volume in the Crispi simple made the boot flex too much for me when I tried side steps, shoving the lower leg forward while keeping the foot flat on the ground etc. It has a very nice and firm (stiff sole) which I like, but out of the 3, the Crispi had the lowest height up the ankle. Overall though, very well made and very supportive!, just too much volume for my foot to fill properly.

The Hanwag, like the Crispi, very stiff hiking Vibram sole and very good support, and a tad higher. I did not like the lower locking tab that folds over on the 4th lace, a real pain, and once laced tight, the whole boot flexes strangely around the laced area when pushed hard, but the real deal breaker was it caused pain under and on the side of the big toe and the ball directly behind the toe, a high pressure point for me in this boot. Don't get me wrong on the Hanwag, if it fits you, it is a VERY good boot as well as the Crispi......

The one I finally settled on was the Zamberlan Storm Pro GTX $350.00. Lower overall volume in the shoe meant a comforting glove fit for my foot, while at the same time, the toe box was a bit larger than the others and no squeezing's on the side balls of my bony feet (I'm a fit guy, run, mtn bike etc, and feet are very lean). Also, the highest of the 3, at 9" it is snug on my ankle and gives me confidence in it's ability to protect my ankle and lower leg, and once snugly tightened, very supportive. The Vibram sole is the least stiff of all 3, and I had to think about that, but once laced up, hugs my feet perfectly, it is absolutely the most supportive for me. (note, if you want a very stiff Mountaineering Boot sole, this is not your boot...).

No pressure points in it and I feel I could hike and walk comfortably all day in it, though I have not had a chance to really give it a long test with weight etc, just some hard surfaces.

The bottom line, when first starting to shop, I was leaning towards the Crispi's and the Hanwag's after reading a ton of reviews (and the reviews seem pretty accurate in their assessment), but I could not get any of their models to properly fit MY feet...... and then I ran across the Zamberlan's at Scheels, which just opened in Mar 2021 Co-Springs.

In looking at them, all 3 being made in Italy (by hand), it looks like they are probably ALL made at the same factory in Italy, the hardware, linings, etc all appearing the same. Maybe not, but all are very high quality. I tried a EU 44 in all pairs. I did try some 43's but all were too small.

The bottom line, you will need to try at least 3-5 different brands on and sizes until you find what fits YOUR FOOT...! And these 3 brands all fit differently,,, in more ways then one.

Hope that helps, and good luck shopping. :)

Tight toe box
Well I’m not to happy with the toe box. Wish they had it in a wide version. Ordered the size recommendation and my toes feel like they are being smashed. Wrong boot for me so I’ll be returning it and finding another pair.
