    Brand New Gronell Hiking boots UK 9 and 11

    I have tried to get a few new guys into decent hunting boots. I've managed to get a pair to a newish hunter but not much other interest while I'm still happy to pass them on at cost to some new hunters I need to recoup the cost of the remaining 2 pairs.
    If your just want a set of good boots but aren't new to hunting I'd pass them on to you for $300 unless some more new/young hunters come forward first. (price is lower by a bit for new/young hunters and happy to meet halfway for guys if your not really new but have a good reason to help you out) reason being to try preference the new guys.

    Below is the original post with details.


    I happened across a few pairs of new Gronell Tibet boots for an absolute steal (genuine steal ie @Ryan_Songhurst selling lightly used gear steal sorta thing).

    Sizes left are 43 and potentially a 46. I fit the 46s and am tempted to buy them for a spare pair of boots for the guiding season in Canada but thought a new/young hunter could use these boots as I get a decent discount with Schnees.

    They are a shanked boot fit nice enough. Not a tonne of padding but fit my feet well enough for an unbroken in boot. Pm me for the details and I'll pass them on to any new Hunters.

    All sets now gone pending fitting and payment. Funnily enough I put them up for sale and I find to new hunters to pass them on to. Will update if they don't fit etc.

    After some great advice from Stocky, I realise the size 9s won't suit what I want them for.

    Bump still at cost to young/new hunters or $300 for anybody else.

    Ps advice to previous has been that boots are stiff. More suited to hill country than Bush. Probably most suitable for South islander. You can have them for your missus at cost but only if you intend and genuinely believe you can convince them to hunt. Preferably I'd like a few posts but obviously new hunters will likely have lower post counts.

    They are not specifically wide. I have fairly wide but not overly wide feet and they fit me well but I fit most boots well and have never got blisters in any @JoshC has likely worn enough different sets to give an idea but its hard without trying thrm on. I think farmlands or whatever its called down south might stock then for sizing.

    Not really a wide fit boot.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
