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've used these on a few backpacking trips and a few rock climbing clinics (as an approach shoe) and they are both stiff as well as flexible where they need to be. My ankles never felt like they were going to roll or twist when I wasn't prepared for it. Carried pretty heavy packs in both above scenarios and these boots still gave me the foot and ankle protection I needed. They were even fairly warm in cold shoulder season temps
I’ve had the Thor from OTB (the boot which the AKU Spider has been made after) and used it extensively. It wa stone to upgrade and get something that will not be too hot in the Arizona weather.
The Pilgrim DS are rugged and well supported boots. Due to these boots not having a waterproof barrier, they breath great for a durable boot and are perfect for desert mountain terrain. I am a Park Ranger and these are my boot of choice for desert mountain Search and Rescue operations.
