HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
We create our footwear using lasts based on real feet. Because of this we make it easy to find your perfect fit.
1st. Step onto a piece of paper and mark just behind your heel and in front 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.
Owned 6 months. Use them daily 2-3 times a day on my dog walks. Lots of mud, water, concrete, trails, you name it. Have also used them on hikes. Had Vasque (some low end hikers) and OBO in the past. Like these much more.
Very comfortable from day one and getting more comfortable. Very waterproof as I've been ankle high in water without getting wet. Walking on wet rocks and the grip is better than any shoe I've owned (see above). THey have a great sole design. These are supportive for what I've put them through, but I haven't done backpacking or the like. These are heavier than the above mentioned boots, but not excessively so. With that you get an assurance in every step, that I didn't feel before. Again, without model numbers, this may be a bit of apples to orange comparison. YMMV
I'm just hoping that the tread lasts. I can't say one way or the other at this point. Told my spouse to buy a pair and she just put in the order today.
They’re great. Super comfortable and capable.
My boyfriend put these on and they fit like a glove. They are very well made and his little grandson really liked his red laces.
