Out of the box wore these boots "walking the steps" at the local amphitheater. 85 degrees and sunny, up and down for 30 minutes 4 days in a row. Zero blisters and no foot pain. Ready for use on the mountain!
I just purchased these West River Boots in Johnstown CO. Store, I wanted a boot with a little more insulation for this fall elk season, I own the Guide GTX and love them, paid a bit more for the Guide.Except for the ankle support option these boots are as well made for $250. less, good buy, can't wait for elk season,
Awesome boots with everything I need and wanted for Elk hunting. They are amazingly comfortable and were easy to break in. Yet they retain a good ankle support for rough terrain. I highly recommend these.
I purchased these right before a Colorado elk hunt. I was only able to put about a mile on them prior to the hunt. During the trip, I did around 25-30 miles in them. One long afternoon was a 6 mile trip with a 2000 foot ascent/2000 descent.
I have narrow flat feet and I have zero complaints about these boots. They were very comfortable, just the right insulation and gripped all terrain that I encountered. Not a single hot spot or blister the whole trip. These are the most expensive boots I have bought, but glad I did.
I bought these boots so that I had a good quality lace up boot that I can hunt whitetail, muley, elk, turkey, and pheasant in. I wore them walking to class all winter in the snow and my feet never sweat or got cold.
I recommend buying the Crispi waterproofing spray with these, this spring while turkey hunting I crossed a creek that was a little deeper than I thought and the water came way up the boot but did not go over. My feet never got wet and I was very surprised because every other lace up boot I have owned was never waterproof.
Thank you Crispi and Scheels for teaming up and making a boot that is not only affordable but also durable and lives up to my expectations.
Weather conditions on a first rifle elk hunt in CO last year were going to be unexpectedly cold and snowy, so my buddy and I had to buy insulated boots on short notice. We both ended up with the West River as they were the best option for us at Scheels. I spent the next three days in them hiking upwards of 25 miles in conditions including 10 inches of snow; miles of horse trails through mud, muck, water, and other nastiness; and then packed an elk off the mountain 2.5 miles each way. I never had a hotspot, never had wet feet, and my feet stayed warm enough even as temps got into the teens. Since then, I've used them for cold weather trail hiking. They are really comfortable and versatile enough for steep stuff and hours of flatter trails. Thanks Crispi and Scheels!
I had done hours of research for boots. Looked at the other premium brands but wanted to keep by budget under $300.
I'm planning an OTC Archery Elk hunt this fall out West and needed something extremely durable and with good ankle support. I also wanted to be able to use it for fall whitetail in the Midwest as well. This boot has all the traits of the more expensive Crispi and Kenetrek models but at a much more affordable price.
After curing them for a couple days in boot oil, I've been wearing them for shoveling and work. There's to much snow to hike yet but they have exceeded my expectations. They breath very well despite being a 400 gram insulation boot. They are also super light. It feels like I'm wearing tennis shoes with these things.
I used them to get up on my roof and clear snow off yesterday. I was surprised by the grip and stability. They'll work great in the mountains!
This is a smoking deal on a premium pair of boots. Don't hesitate!
First off these boots are very comfortable. They seem to be made very well. Very little break in required. However, for my style of hunting they are just not going to cut it. The triple stitched rubber rand sounded like a good idea but the stitching will not hold up to PA mountain laurel. Also the inside of the boots were wet the first day, walked through numerous streams and snow all day though. Nice pair of boots, wish they would’ve worked for me.
Being new to big game hunting in Colorado, I was tod a nice pair of boots is where to start when buying gear. These paired with merino liners and socks were by far the most comfortable boots I tried on. By the end of the season, I hiked roughly 40 miles in the Crispi West River through steep snow covered inclines and declines many of those miles with elk quarters on my back. My feet never got cold, wet, or blisters. Several in my group complained of foot discomfort wearing other brands. I would recommend these boots to anyone!
Hands down the best boot I've ever worn. They are comfortable, durable, and great looking boot. I would reccomend to anyone who does a lot of hiking in the hills or out to the midseason woods. Not the best treestand boot due to it having low gram weight but other than that they are second to none. Could easily walk through creeks without wet feet or cold feet.
Many great qualities for avid mountain hunter. Awesome boot!
I’ve owned $100 boots to $250 dollar boots. From Cabelas and Bass Pro to Rocky’s and Irish Setters boots to Meindl’s.
These boots are the best mountain hunting boots I’ve ever worn in the hardwoods Appalachian and Blueridge Mountians in Va. The aggressive Vibram sole on these boots has the most/best traction of any boot I’ve ever worn. The sole has a flex rating of 3 on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the stiffest. It’s perfect for the mountains I hunt. This Italian made boot is very well put together. Double and triple stitching. The boot laces up great. Someone else left a review that the boot is hard to lace up and I beg the differ. Very easy to lace up and the tongue requires no training. It’s a very comfortable tongue on this boot. The total fit of this boot is very comfortable. I can’t say enough good things about it at a glance. I don’t have enough miles and hours on these boots for a durability and waterproof review but they are made very durable and they have Gore-Tex water proof breathable lining. The are 400grams insulation. Good weight insulation to keep sweeting down while hiking up the mountains. I wear thin silk like socks made by gold toe to hike in and when I get on my stand I change into Wigwam Merino Wool socks and I lace my boots up loose so my feet can get good blood flow to help keep them warm.
So far at a glance I can’t say enough good things about this boot for the price. Most all of Crispi’s boots are over $300 and most of them are closer to $500. This model is only sold at Scheels so Scheels and Crispi must have worked out a deal on these boots to only be made for and sold at Scheels. I’m not sure wear they cut the quality to get these boots under $300 for Scheels but they don’t seem to be lacking any quality or detail for the price.
I’ve worn these on a couple antelope hunts and for chores around the house. Yesterday we did a 3 mile pack for my wife’s deer, my feet were great. Today I did about 6 miles with a total of almost 3k feet of elevation gain. It was less than 30 degrees all day and about a foot of snow. My feet were warm and feel great still. My only gripe is they are a bit hard to tie, but for boots that treat my feet so well, I’ll spend the extra time in the morning. Buy these boots!
