Family run and hailing from Italy, Crispi the company- has mountaineering/hunting/hiking/trekking/approach/lifestyle boots---that have dedicated fans on this side of the ocean----

We know guys that bought this brand's expedition shoes for summiting Mt. Rainier...and they had CHOICES.

Ascent Plus GTX®-a lot of lateral stability via a wrapping framework construction-lightweight though with waterproof Gore-Tex performance comfort footwear lining

Vibram soles-Super Grip for super traction, high wear resistance, and double density shock absorption

There is a lot of technology that goes into these kickers.  Most noticeable to us straight out-the Crispi Framework Technology--a structural over-injection with plastic polymer, fused on the upper-making the shoe flexibility and stability.

ankle bone support with the memory/red foam 
Other Crispi features-an Ankle Bone Support System (A.B.S.S.)-special materials that provide comfort and protection of the entire ankle area when hiking rough terrain,,,

NICE-Nevada Legend HTG 830gr-water repellent nubuk upper
DTL Dual Tec Lining-Gore-tex®-breathable, waterproof, and abrasion resistant

Bump Absorbing Cage (B.A.C.)-at the toe-not just a cap, a Crossbow Frame via an insert made in a plastic material that allows for a waving module- shaped like a wave-that provides shock absorption/stability, a removable insole of Air Mesh, felt, and Active Carbon for anti-odor, moisture management ...

 ...and something called the Single Wave Concept-where the upper is constructed on a single piece of leather  or corder shaped around the instep-for the purpose of fast easy/on off of the foot from the shoe. Interesting.
