Grisport Crusader Walking Boots – brown

The Grisport Crusader walking boots are probably the finest boot that Grisport have ever made. They have used premium grade leathers on the collar and upper and have formed these on a tough and durable vibram sole. The lining is ‘sympatex’ guaranteeing waterproofing. Crusader offers the kind of quality you can only normally find on boots costing well over £200.  Wide fitting provides comfort straight out of the box.

  • Waxed leather upper
  • Waterproof & highly breathable Sympatex lining
  • Deep cleated Vibram rubber sole
  • 7 hook eyelet lace up
  • Wide fit
  • Weight: 1485g


How to care for your Grisport walking boots?

  • Preparation: Take the footbed out, so it can dry out. If you also want to wax your boots, take out the boot laces.
  • Cleaning: Remove the worst of the dirt under running water with a brush; also remove dirt and stones from the sole.
  • Hygiene: To improve the odour of your boots, clean the inside of your boots with luke-warm water and a soft brush. This doesn’t hurt the lining.
  • Drying: Never dry boots in direct sunlight or on heat-generating units such as radiators or stoves. Wet leather is very sensitive to heat and “burns” easily (i.e. it becomes brittle and hard, and then gets cracked).
    When the lining is wet, stuff boots with newspaper (don’t forget to remove later!). Dry boots keep their shape perfectly with wooden boot trees.
  • Waxing: Leather needs regular “nutritional” waxing, as do GORE-TEX® lined boots or the trim on cordura boots. Apply wax with a sponge or rag; don’t forget the tongues! Caution: Do not heat! Otherwise the wax penetrates too deeply, decreasing breathability and thus comfort.  A beeswax product such as Meindl Sportwax is what we advise to treat this boot.
  • Tip for nubuck boots: Waxing changes the boots’ appearance. The leather gets smoother and darker, but this is a perfectly normal, harmless process! The leather is “fed” and the seams become more stable.
  • Hooks and Eyelets: Protect against corrosion with wax or Vaseline.  It can also be of benefit to remove the laces and rub a little wax on the laces with your fingers.
