HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this it is very easy to find your perfect boot or shoe size.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind you heel an jus in font of your longest toe.
2nd. Do this for both feet and then measure the centimeters between these lines. This measurement is your Mondopoint.
3rd. Using the measurement from your longest foot find your correlating size below.
I hunt mostly in Arizona but generally across the west. I have tried all the major high dollar high quality brands ( Kenetrek, Schnees, Lowa ect.) and these boots are by FAR the most durable and comfortable that I have ever owned. I wear them for my late hunt in snow/subzero weather and for the early hunt when it can reach the high 90's. Most boots I have to take off after a big day of 10 plus miles, not these babies they stay on until I hit the sack, these things never really feel like a standard mountaineering boot. I'm on my second pair after 7 years of hard miles and will continue on to my third then fourth pair for life.
