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.
I was undecided with these AKU, because they don’t have the double tongue, but they seem to cinch up well. I use mine in the construction field and refuse to buy anything else. I will admit I do purchase Scarpa and Asolo on occasion. I liked the color option of these boots and the comfort did not let me down. At 400 plus dollars, my only recommendation is they put in a better sole insert.
