    Nobody else can answer that for you - run whichever one works for your foot better. Buy a couple pairs of each in different sizes, try them on the treadmill at the gym, keep the pair you like best, return the others.

    Agreed, I have a super old pair of scarpas that probably have a thousand miles on them. They're no good for the mountains anymore, but I still wear them around town all the time. I later bought a pair of fuegos and hated everything about them. Wound up returning them. Bought my first pair of crispis about a year ago skeptically because the price was super right and I love them just as much as the old scarps. I have also been blessed with incredibly "normal" feet and almost any high quality boot works for me. Almost.

    Boots are something that unfortunately (because good ones are so damned expensive) that you just have to figure out by trial and error

    Never had either but have heard more positive about the Crispi's then the Scarpa's.

    I've had great luck with Scarpas. In fact, my last 2 pairs have been Scarpas. I use and abuse them at work plus use them on sheep, mtn goat, elk, and deer hunts. They have held up better than any other boot that I've punished on my feet!

    Crispi makes very good boots. I've worn the Idahos and will be buying another pair of Crispis this summer.

    Finally decided to quit wearing cheap boots. Was torn between kenetrek and crispi, went with the crispi Nevada legends and have had them about a week.

    I wear them around town and put about 16 miles on them while shed hunting. So far I am very pleased, wasn't much of a break in. I struggle with boots fitting comfortably which is why i used to buy cheap and replace almost every year trying different brands. I don't know anything about scarpa but most guys I know are wearing kenetrek. I really like the crispis tho and plan to pick up a pair of the Hunters when I find the funds.

    Got an email from Kuiu the other day, they are selling the Scarpa Grand Dru for a hundred bucks off.. I,'ve been wearing a pair of those since last spring, pretty much wear em every where.
    Went from the Lowa GTX hunters to the Scarpa,s and I don't seem to be missing the Lowa,.
    That being said, try on as many different pairs as you can that fit the defined parameters. If they don't fit right, yer gonna be an unhappy camper.
