    Grisport Aoraki Boot

    Does anyone know about the Grisport aoraki apx boot available from hunting and fishing? They have them for $349, they look like a decent pair of light weight stalking boots? Any info either good or bad would be much appreciated

    I've got a pair, got them to replace some Stoney Creek boots that were faulty. Only had them a couple of months but so far I'm happy with them.

    Grisport Aoraki Boot

    Importer is a knob end but boots ok.
    I've got Kaikora boots which are similar but heavier.
    They are lighter than my old boys Asolo normal height ones even though a lot taller.
    I deff rate the higher boots.
    Would have to be something special before I replaced them at this stage.

    Got the Aorakis today. Higher, sturdy and yet suitable for stalking. Very good boot, to my liking at least...

    Bought the GriSport Hunter Pro for $299.
    All is well except I'm getting a blister on my right heel....
    Nice shoes tho....had them for few weeks now, I think they come with a 1 year warranty... which you shouldn't need to use anyways...

    Got the Aorakis. Probably the most comfortable boot I've used. Very soft soled. Good for bush hunting but I don't think they'll last too long. Would buy another pair for sure.
