All,
I have the Crispi Laponnias and Light Hikers, both of which I think are good boots and have their specific uses for me. I am looking at the Briksdals for my stiffer, non-insulated mountain boot. I wear a 12.5 in both of the boots I currently have. Do you guys see that the size for one model of Crispi boots is the same as the other? Wondering if I should order a pair of Briksdals in 12.5?

I would contact Crispi, but the size of boot should not matter, the flex rate should be the same no matter the size.

I have the Briksdal SF, and they fit exactly like my usual size.

They did require a longer break in than most other boots I’ve owned, especially the ankle support.

Currently my favorite boot. I would, and most likely will buy another pair.

I have two pairs of crispi boots and tried on about 4 others and have found all models to run true to size for me.

For me the Colorados were shorter/smaller than all the other Crispis i have or tried on. Plenty of width but too small lengthwise. whats challenging about all boots/shoes is you really need to wear them a while before you get that feel for them

I have 3 pair of Crispis.
Thor which I like for summer backpacking, a pair of Colorados which I wore every day
bird hunting in MT from Nov-Jan, then every day hiking since then. I liked them so much I bought a new pair
as a backup. My feet are narrow and long and they fit them well (size 14B).

Would you pick the Thors over the summits?

I currently have 3 pair of Crispis, The Wild Rock, the Wyoming, and the Idaho. I used to have a pair of the Hunter. All four fit the same.

edited to add: And I should have stated they fit true to size.

Both are uninsulated and fairly light (Thor 1.25 lbs, Summit 1.5 lbs).
I have the original Thor and it has 2 flaw by design.
1) The gortex is not a full 8" gortex bootie, but gortex about 2 inches up inside the boot.
The problem with that design is crossing streams the boot becomes a water container
since the gortex will not allow drainage in the bottom 2 inches of the boot.
A better design would be no gortex, or a full 8 inch gortex bootie.

2) The cloth ankle eyelet will eventually fail. Bad design.

For summer hiking in dry hot conditions, I really like the Thor.
I would not wear them in wet or cold conditions.
