    Boots - Evolve Razorback or GriSport Aoraki

    Evolve Razorback ($219) or GriSport Aoraki ($350)....

    Pros and Cons anyone??? Apart from price...

    Razorback is quite a bit cheaper but not sure of its quality. I hear it dries quite fast if wet.
    They both are about the same weight but I need feedback before I make a final choice... Boots will be for deer and upland hunting.....

    Let me know of your thoughts....

    i recently bought grisport hikers. was intending to try the evolves but store people advised against it as they regularly get them returned. I love the grisport, so comfortable out of the box and the ones i got had options for inner soles that came with them.
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.

    Evolve Razorback have a bad rep with soles separating from the boot. I had this problem and had them replaced twice. Having them replaced is alright but having to walk out with a broken boot is frustrating. I gave up on cheap boots after that and brought some Hiax.

    atta boy... everyone against it.... so I'll keep away from it...

    Smidey, I tried the Hiker... neat boot... very comfortable out of the box and nice to walk with.... The Aoraki was a bit stiffer, but understandable as its a high boot......
    I guess Aoraki will do the job...

    Cheers for the feedback to all

    i only do a small amount of armed tramping in fair weather and rabbit/possum shooting on foot so for that they are spot on i think.

    GRI Hunter could be a better option Vibram sole soft wearing light on your feet - it really depends on what type of country you are hunting for me they are ideal bush stalking nice and quiet

    Evolve cheaper I bought a pair to use in nepal on a motorbike trip to cover walking and motorbiking.
    Have found hooks bend and waterproofing not flash.
    Mind you they did what I wanted and fitted but will spend bit more next time.
