18 Dec Grisport – Winter Boot Guide
The days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are getting colder, as we quickly move deeper into the winter season. As the jingle bells of Christmas get even louder, it’s time to get ready for the change in weather and invest in your perfect winter boots to see you through into the New Year! Here at Grisport, we carry a comprehensive range of specialist boots, including those suitable for getting you through the harsh winter months! While winter might mean early nights in front of the fire, for most of us, some still like to brave the great outdoors and venture out on a hike this winter! Hiking in winter can be breathtaking, with snow covered scenery and crisp air. However, it also presents unique challenges and can be more hazardous when hiking during the warmer months – meaning good footwear is crucial! That’s why we have put together a guide of our best winter boots…
The Hurricane Dark Purple walking boot is one of our best selling ladies boots. The Waxed Leather Upper now comes in a range of colours and the Vibram Non Slip Rubber Sole provides perfect grip, even in the harshest of the British conditions. The Hurricane has been a firm favourite with all of our customers and is the best-selling ladies boot by far. We have listened to our customers and introduced three new colours to the Hurricane Range this being Burgundy, Navy and Purple. The Waxed Leather Upper has no lines of stitching or any points of weakness that could allow water ingress, while the comfort and fit is superior to any other brand. The Hurricane Boots are made in Italy at the bottom of the Dolomite mountains, like all of the Grisport range, they are made in the state of the art factory using solar energy.
Everything we know about making comfortable boots have gone into designing our ‘Lady Glide’ boot. As well as being amazingly lightweight – at only 880g per pair (for size 37) – we’ve added a padded toe-joint, padded collar, jointed padded tongue and triple density cushioned midsole. All of these features add to our ‘comfortable straight from the box guarantee’ – as we are confident that our boots are the most comfortable you will ever wear. In addition to the comfort, this boot also has stunning looks, with the aqua blue trim setting the boot off perfectly. The waterproof & breathable membrane ensures that ‘Lady Glide’ is a capable performer and the Vibram sole is one of our best.
Saracen is simply an amazingly comfortable boot, as it is packed with all of our latest comfort features, designed and tested by our research team in Italy. The flexible, padded toe-joint means no breaking-in is required, while the ‘anti-tendinitis’ design on the heel ensures comfort all around the foot. The sole is made of multi-layered PU, giving a cushioned walking experience, but has additional durability provided by the Vibram sole. Quick, rip proof lacing makes the boot easy to take on and off and the anatomic insole and midsole combination is absorbent, shock proof, insulated and breathable. This boot leads the line in walking boot comfort.
The Glencoe boot has been in the range for over 10 years and still sells amazingly well. Upgraded in 2012 to the full grisport rubber outsole with deep cleat tread, this boot is extremely lightweight and the low cut, padded back collar gives added comfort.
The Capri is a new child’s lowland hiking boot made from suede and mesh textile for breathability, this is the ideal boot for your little ones walks with mum and dad. The speed lacing system is hassle free and secure giving you piece of mind that your little ones feet are secure and warm, the gritex membrane in the lining will keep their feet warm and dry in the worst weather conditions.
